    Coconut Mocha Pie

    My creative process is a little…messy. It’s completely the opposite of the rest of my life which is precisely planned with a series of lists and Excel spreadsheets. My most recent, messy creation: Coconut Mocha Pie.

    Coconut Macadamia Cookies

    I’ve been on a real cookie kick around here lately. Cookies aren’t something I share on the blog much, especially not drop cookies like these. I feel like sometimes they just aren’t special enough to warrant sharing here. I’m here to tell you that these Coconut Macadamia Cookies are very, very special indeed!

    Coconut Pineapple Tart

    It’s a cool (for July…around 80 degrees) and rainy day in Michigan today, but we’ve had our share of tropical weather lately! It’s been consistently in the 90s and humid…and we’re currently living with my in-laws…with no AC. Let’s just say I’m very aware of the weather. 😉 I’m sure you’ll all feeling pretty tropical lately, too, so it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to my Coconut Pineapple Tart!

    Banana Coconut Cake

    You can never have too much dessert. At least that’s what I tell my husband when he comes home to yet *another* of my creations that the picky man won’t eat. 😉 We have a vacation coming up (yaaaaaay!!!), and my anticipation of our trip had me thinking of tropical flavors. In this case, a Banana Coconut Cake!

    Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Shortbread

    Tell me you love coconut. If you do, you *need* these Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Shortbread cookies in your life! Immediately! If you don’t, I suppose we can still be friends. My husband doesn’t like coconut, and we still get along (although we do have that whole “until-death-do-us-part” agreement). These are buttery, crisp, and melt in your mouth. We ate them all, and I miss them already.
