Dia's Gluten Free & Vegan Hot Cross BunsIt’s that time of year again…spring has sprung! The snow drops have gone, the croci are just about over and the daffodils are in full bloom. In a couple of weeks my tulips will be out, and it will be Easter. Whether or not you celebrate that holiday, you can still enjoy these delicious hot cross buns.

My point is, I don’t know why it is called Monkey Bread–even Wikipedia doesn’t know:

Mini Naan PizzasThis dish is not only healthy, but completely vegetarian. It could even be vegan if you substitute the cheeses to vegan cheeses. I will give you all of the information if you would like to do this.
These cuties are absolutely delicious and can be made for a party or for a romantic dinner for two. The naan bread gives a nice peppery taste, and added with the right topping, this can be truly exceptional!
