Oh. My. Goodness.
Have you ever tasted something, and just stopped? Like, stopped and stared at the food?
This is insane!?! That kind of good.

We received Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil to review, and it was out of this world. I have never used coconut oil before, so this was a first for me!

My husband is a very, very good cook. Better then I am, if I am being honest. (Who needs that? Haha) And he loves to cook. So, when we received the coconut oil to try, he claimed “dibs” on trying it first.
Apparently, coconut oil is a fairly healthy way to cook. It may be the healthiest oil on earth– you decide!

Excellent, kitchen-tested recipes can be found on the Free Coconut Recipes blog here:

However, the hubs didn’t use the recipe link- even though I told him about it, lol….
but I am not sorry he didn’t! He made AMAZING chicken cutlets.
First, he dipped it in flour, then egg, then 1 part breadcrumb 1 part fresh shredded coconut.

He then fried it in the Virgin Coconut Oil until the chicken was golden brown, and viola!

Then, he crushed pineapple, put in a chile pepper, a little bit of sugar, and fried it in the coconut oil….

And dinner was ready! (Yes, yes, we had broccoli, too- but focus, people, focus! LOOK at that! I want to frame it!)
It was like eating a pina colada!!! First of all, the coconut chicken, all on it’s own- insane. IN-SANE.
Then, to put the pinapple rue on it? Oh. My. Goodness.

Ya’ll need to try this!

This stuff was amazing. And it was not greasy, and it didn’t sit in your stomach like a brick, either.
Tropical Traditions uses time-honored and traditional practices to get their organic coconut oil- it is not mass produced by machines. (Um, wow? That’s impressive.) The fact that there are health benefits in addition to the amazing taste of coconut oil has made me a convert.

The coconut oil is certified organic- and you know I love that! Tropical Traditions has so many great, natural products on their site- from organic grass-fed meats, to skin care products, to pet shampoo! They really have something for everyone. I am so happy to be sharing this site with you, bloggy buddies.

  2. Hey Samantha,

    We have an article written that we think would be great to feature (as your comment requested) and could send it over! Can you shoot an e-mail to: [email protected]?


  3. Hi! I’m a new follower as well and have used Coconut Oil as well. It’s out this world isn’t it!
    I just never know what else to do with it besides rub into my skin, LOL!

  4. Hi just dropping by via Friday Blog hop. Love coconut oil. It is so good for so many things other then just cooking. If you have nipple or ordinary thrush it will get rid of it. Just thought I would share this quote coming into the weekend: “Make a Friday a day to celebrate work well done that you can be proud of knowing that you just didn’t put in time to the next pay check.”
