Coconut Oil

Hi friends! Do you use coconut oil?

I've seen so many recipes using coconut around blog-land and pinterest in the last little while.  I finally picked some up at Sam's Club.  I've had it for a few days now and it was killing me that I hadn't made anything with it yet.

This morning I'm putting aside the dirty kitchen floor (I've forgotten how dirty floors get when babies feed themselves) and the laundry, and I mixed up some applesauce muffins from Mel's Kitchen Cafe.  They are in the oven now.  I'll let you know how they turn out.

I'm fascinated by coconut oil.  I love watching it turn creamy white and solid when cold, and then to a clean liquid when it warms up in my house.  It smells divine too.

I'm also excited to make some kettlecorn with a little coconut oil in my whirleypop popcorn popper.  And I have a few cookie recipes pinned on Pinterest that look delicious!

Do you have any favorite coconut oil recipes?  Have you used it in anything other than baking?  I'd love to hear what you've done with it.

Have a happy Thursday!
