GIVEAWAY: Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut! -CLOSED-

Winner

I tried out Shredded Coconut from Tropical Traditions.  It is cut very small so it can be added easily to certain recipes.  I used it to make granola bars and they were excellent!  I used this Granola Bar recipe.  Only instead of raisins I used chocolate chips..lol  And then I added ...maybe a cup of shredded coconut.  We are coconut lovers here. :)  I also use almonds instead of walnuts.  Those changes make this the best granola bar recipe that I've made!  I just hate making them too often because I eat WAY too much.

The Shredded Coconut is NOT sweetened.  It is organic and free of additives, and no sulfites are used to keep them white.  Tropical Traditions has some great recipes including: macaroons :)  I think I'll try that next.  Search for Shredded Coconut to find more recipes!

Also the coconuts from the Philippines were grown with no fertilizers or pesticides!  Tropical Traditions sells a 1 gallon re-sealable pail for $17.50.  That holds 3.5 lbs!  That's a lot of macaroons..lol

Tropical Traditions is giving away 3.5 lbs of non-sweetened Shredded Coconut!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
