Let's Bring Back: one of the superstars of the 1980s kitchen -- Monkey Bread.
When I was in high school, my mom discovered a great recipe for turning refrigerator rolls into the most amazing pull-apart dessert bread. Called Monkey Bread, it was a favored recipe of the 1980s, partly because Nancy Reagan made it a staple at casual White House functions. But the origins of the name Monkey Bread are as murky as the origins of the recipe itself.

Computers are great. Seriously, think of all they do for us. They spell check our horribly written term papers, they help us find dinner for date night, and they help us keep in contact (some say too much so) with all our friends on Facebook. Most importantly tho, they can distract us for hours on end when we are trapped inside by a couple feet of snow. Here are some suggestions of places you can go for free online entertainment:
Pandora.com - On Pandora you can create radio stations that play the type of music you like. You start with an artist or song and Pandora tries to find similar songs for you to listen to; this has the added bonus of being a great way to learn about new bands!
Grooveshark.com - Grooveshark allows you to create a playlist by searching for artists or titles you like. You then drag them into a play bar and it will play the songs you have chosen in the order you have put them in.
