One day I stopped by Patrice's blog and she had pictures of some yummy fritters. It seems she had made them using Tropical Traditions Organic Palm oil. Patrice, through the kindness of Tropical Traditions, hosted a giveaway. I didn't win. It's OK, Patrice (and Wendell) I'm over it. I still love you both!
Anyway, after not winning... ( ie after losing....) I visited the Tropical Traditions Web site and found out that I could sign up for a free sample of Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil to review on my Blog, and host my own giveaway.
I visited the Tropical Traditions Web site and signed up. It turns out that Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Then... I had second thoughts. I decided I didn't want to experiment with Coconut oil. I didn't want to write a review of a product (even though I was under no obligation from the company) and I didn't want to conduct a giveaway. So I went back on the site and cancelled my order.
Well, now I have had a few opportunities to try the Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil and I can say that I really do like the product, with one exception, which I will detail below. (That's a sure-fire way to make you read this to the end...right?!)
I have used the oil in four things, so far.
First, I substituted Coconut Oil for half of the fat following a pie crust recipe on the Tropical Traditions site for my Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.
