Coconut Meringue Custards

Thanks to Akasha Richmond’s cookbook, Hollywood Dish, This is a fantastic pudding with all the steps pared down to a minimum. I am certain it will work with regular milk if you are not lactose intolerant. But if you have always been curious about how to make soy taste great – try this recipe!

Easter Egg Hunt Carrot Cake

This cake is delicious and beautiful whether you tint the coconut green to make an egg studded lawn or leave it white like the Easter Bunny’s tail.

Jumbleberry Cobbler

Coconut Shortbread Cookies

There is coconut baked both in and on these buttery shortbreads. If you are nutty for coconut, like me, go ahead and use coconut extract instead of vanilla – it is available in most grocery stores. Real extract, as opposed to artificial, may need to be sourced at a natural foods store.
