Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Review and #Giveaway

I was given a huge jar of Tropical Traditions Coconut oil to review. I love to cook but had no idea what to do with the oil. I found so many great uses. The one we tried first was I fried some pork chops in the oil and we had them for dinner with broccoli and corn. I very rarely fry foods but the fact that the Coconut oil is so good for you I decided to go ahead and do it. It was so good. My dh, who is so unbelievably picky, loved it. It gave it a mild but exotic flavor.

I then decided to make a yellow cake mix using the coconut oil and added some lemon juice and zest to the cake mix. Then added lemon juice and zest into a powdered sugar frosting and stirred. I drizzled it over the still warm cake. Oh my. What a delicious cake this was. I make lemon cakes all the time for my family. It is a way to enjoy cake and not put a heavy frosting on it. So in my own mind it's a healthier cake. The kids and adults both love it.

They gave me some invaluable links to use my coconut oil. Here's their recipes page for chicken. Chicken and here's a how to use the coconut oil video.
