First of all, I’d like to say welcome back to my ghost town of a blog.
Secondly, I’d like to announce I have a new love.
Coconut oil is even better than another old flame, butter. Although high in fat, it’s a super healthy fat, and it is so soo good.
Homemade chocolate chip cookies are divine when coconut oil is substituted for butter.
I know it sounds kinda weird, but grilled cheese sandwiches are simply scrumptious when grilled in coconut oil.
I know...but I’m tellin ya…
However! You have to buy virgin coconut oil--refined, pure, or anything less than virgin just won’t do, as far as flavor goes. (Trader Joe’s sells a pint of V.C.O.for about six dollars, which is about half what I paid for the same amount at Meijer’s.)
Lately, I’ve been adding a spoonful or two of the creamy stuff to my occasional bowl of oatmeal.
I’m not a huge fan of oatmeal—I find it rather boring--but I like it this way, especially with a sprinkle of shredded coconut and a few chopped pecans.
Ummm! I think this beats the traditional apple and cinnamon dress-up.
