There is something you may or may not know about me. I am a 100% coconut FREAK!! When I say freak – I mean, everything I can pick that has a variety of scents- I will ALWAYS choose coconut (or something with hints of coconut tones) Without question – my all time favorite scent, flavor- everything. If I can find a way to add it – I will. I don’t know what it is. Maybe the scent reminds me of home. Maybe it just reminds me of goodies. I really can’t tell you- but I am completely OBSESSED. So much so that I spent $70 at Bath & Body Works the other weekend on their new Oahu scented line. Bought it ALL & smother myself in it several times a day. I can’t get enough. Soooooo just be warned that now that it’s Spring – I will be sharing many recipes with coconut. (insert huge happy- teethy grin here) Now- with most coconut recipes- the toasted version is always better. So I thought I would start by sharing How to Toast Coconut so we have a good reference point going forward.
