Monkeys seem to be popular this summer, along with the ever-friendly pineapple.  This cutie sweater is from Talbot’s and on sale right now. It’s super soft and adds a touch of whimsy to your white cropped jeans and sandals.

Next monkey sighting — Williams-Sonoma.  I spied this tin of cookies the last time I was in the store for a cooking class (you can read about here).

Rad Monkey Cookies

They are Fortnum and Mason Biscuits with Pistachio and Clotted Cream.  Kinda pricey at $34.95 a tin, but I might be willing to pay it for the retro turquoise and gold monkey tin.

Last, what would a monkey story be without sharing a fab recipe for Mrs. Creel’s Monkey Bread!

Mrs. Creel Makes Awesome Monkey Bread


This is from my church friend, Mrs. Creel.  She shared the recipe with me a few years ago just in time for the holidays and I made them for Christmas morning breakfast.  You can get the recipe here or follow along below…
