Oh, what a day what a day this day is turning out to be! I woke up early this morning to find close to 50 comments waiting for moderation on the blog and about a dozen emails in my inbox, all happy wishes from readers for my birthday. Awww, you guys! Thank you, thank you! I appreciate the ♥.

Making toasted coconut is a very simple process but since it’s frequently used in Filipino cooking, I might as well have a standalone entry to refer to for recipes that incorporate it as an ingredient.

So simple, it’s wise to keep a handy dandy jar of this stuff ready to use.
