I have been called Monkey since I was three. My sister Tina ("Chef Mommie") started that! I am now 37. Everyone calls me Monkey, even my teachers in High School called me Monkey. My neices and nephews become teenagers before they even realize I have another name. My real name is Michele. Tina is always getting me to try recipes and sample her cooking. She recently gave me some of the best pumkin cookies I have ever had. I decided it is time to get more involved myself since she teased me and told me I couldn't have the recipe for the cookies. Ha, I found them here before she could give it to me. This is a great recipe site!
