Crunchy Colorful Thai Cabbage Salad & the 4th annual Food Film Marathon

Do you have a jar of coconut oil at home? If so, you are joining and ever growing crowd of fans of this most delicious and versatile oil. I bought my first jar a while back and I must admit at first I did not use it much. I just did not really know how to use it. But once I broke away from the ‘fear of the unknown’ I became addicted. If you are still hesitant as to howto incorporate this oil, or any coconut product, than I would suggest you check out The Complete Coconut Cookbook.

There are so many intriguing dishes and sweets to pick from in the cookbook but the Crunchy Colorful Thai Cabbage Salad recipe was the perfect dish to prepare for my 4th annual Food Film Marathon which took place this past weekend.

Raspberry Granita and its Warm Sauce

I have the most adorable story to tell you. I have a new boyfriend. He is 7. We met on the bus while I was playing a game on my phone on Tuesday. He asked me over for a playdate to play Connect 4 and Skylanders. And I had to ask him what Skylanders was. I was getting the extend description version but had to get off the bus at my stop. He proceeded to tell me approximately where he lived. I told him we would hopefully meet on the street soon and then go play. His mother and the other passengers around had smiles and were muffling giggles from how cute this whole thing was.
