My brother mentioned having pancakes baked in muffin or pop over tins. Have any of you tried this?
Anita in Camarillo

Hi Nancy, Re: to 12/31/13 N/L thanks Robbie in IN. for the cake in mug recipe I made this up and have it for any unexpected gifts that pop up.
Margaret, Tulsa

This is for Keith Evansville, who in the 12/31 did not have good results with his effort to make turtles. I thought he might want to try this recipe, which is from a November 2008 newsletter and was shared by JL in South Jersey. Make sure you use 3 6ounces bags of chips or 18 ounces total. A Friend misread the recipe and almost used 3 12 ounce bags. She caught her error just in time.

Re:My wife keeps seeing recipes that include coconut oil. I search 3 stores in town and no such item available.

What can be used instead of coconut oil in a recipe? Or where can you get coconut oil.
Ditto and Little One's Uncle Joe

Uncle Joe, Coconut oil is not like olive oil, it is a solid product, similar to Crisco, but not like Crisco..it is a solid product, that when heated turns into an oil...In Australia it is with the diet products and is in a jar, in the supermarkets or you can buy in health food shops.

I hope this helps

Once you use it, if you like coconut you won't buy ant thing else, potatoes fried in it are awesome.
Regards, Elizabeth, Bendigo, Victoria, Australia.

Coconut Oil
If you have a local "Whole foods Store" they will have it. Also usually any Health food stores will also.

If not you can easily order it online on Amazon.com, with the advantage of being to read reviews on the product before buying it. I use Amazon regularly for special dietary purposes.
bill, Alb.

In the newsletter dated January 1, Uncle Joe was asking where you can buy coconut oil. All health food stores have it and some of our grocery stores here have a health food section and stock it. It comes in jars like peanut butter, etc., and in different sizes.
Millie in MO

WalMart has Organic Coconut Oil. So does Amazon.com

for Nancy's uncle Joe1/1/14;
I buy virgin coconut oil in a jar. It generally looks white as it is solid until room temp is up a bit. Then it becomes liquid. I spoon out the solid oil put into whatever pan I'm using. I love to cook with oil as you never taste the coconut. But every thing comes out great.

I have two crockettes (small crock pots) and they are a nice addition to my appliances as I live alone. I also find them useful at a family dinner to be used as serving containers which keep the food warm for buffet style serving and for hot dips. It is snowing her in SE Ohio this morning and sub-zero temperatures are predicted for the first of the week. Time to think soups and stews. Nana in SE Ohio/Elaine
