I've decided to close my AR blog down. *ducks various flying kitchen objects*Now hang on second, this doesn't mean I'm quitting blogging all together! *glares*As you may already know, I blog on Free Coconut Recipes (it's on blogspot too by the way). So with those two taking up my attention this… MORE

Vinegar in chocolate?? I scratched my head at the idea, but this is a fantastic combination. The unique, tart-ish flavor with the silky smooth and creamy chocolate was just meant to be. You'll love it. Truffles are pretty simple and easy to make. It's all in the ingredients. Use high… MORE

This pizza crust is really, really good. Even if you're not gluten intolerant but love pizza, you'll want to try it. Just let me warn you: you can't change any of the ingredients. That means every bit of cheese has to stay in as will the rest of the stuff. Why all the cheese? It's the… MORE

These cookies are naturally gluten free. Think flourless chocolate cake in a meringue cookie form. Now that I've gotten your attention, you've probably already scrolled down and taken a look at the recipe, and are perhaps surprised by the amount of sugar. But before you leave, let me… MORE

I invented this recipe not too long ago, and it was really good if I do say so myself. I was surprised at how tender the chicken was. It roasted up juicy, flavorful, buttery and tender with a crisp, golden skin. Each bite was better then the first, and you’d just want more, and more an MORE

Mayonnaise is very easy to make once you know what you're supposed to be doing. If you don't, then most likely you'll just end up with an oily mess. If you've never made mayonnaise before but want to, then read on. Even if you don't want to you should still read on. Homemade mayo tastes so… MORE

I like oatmeal cookies. Do you?This recipe was delicious. Very different, yes, but still delicious.The strangest thing about them is that they go into the oven and come out of the oven looking pretty much the same way as they did when they went in. I was already expecting that after looking… MORE

I don't like making meringues. It worries me. I'm always afraid I'm going to do something to deflate the beautiful, fluffy, marshmallowy mixture in one way or another. But I love eating them, so I still willingly make them when I can. Meringues are a nice way to get rid of those leftover… MORE

When the weather outside is cold, make hot cocoa. Coconut Peanut Butter Cup Hot Cocoa, that is. Never heard of it? Well good, 'cause as far as I know I'm the first one to come up with it (the coconut part, not the peanut butter part). There are lots of peanut butter hot chocolate/hot cocoa… MORE

Here’s to all you who love horseback riding, running, swimming, and just working-out, like me. :) If you workout then you probably know the importance of taking protein powder. Sometimes on off days when I’m not working out I still like to take a little protein powder, but not a full MORE

About Me
Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Sarah Shilhavy. Nice to meet you too. I'm home educated and a mom-taught and self taught cook. I am also a grandma-taught and self-taught baker and the youngest of 3 kids (2 older brothers). I was born in the Middle East and lived in the Philippines for almost 5 years (my mom is Filipino), and have also lived in different parts of the US. My parents own Tropical Traditions, the first company to import Virgin Coconut Oil from the Philippines to the US. I manage Tropical Traditions' coconut recipes blog (named Free Coconut Recipes, look it up). I've developed many recipes, some gluten-free, using Coconut Flour. Notice all the awesome photos here on the blog and profile? They're by my brother Jeremiah. He takes all my product and recipe photos that you will see here in my profile and in my blog posts. Obviously, he's really good at it. ;)
My favorite things to cook
Pastries & desserts! I like cooking because I like to eat what I make, and serve others with what I make. Coconut oil is by far my favorite ingredient, especially since it's a natural energy booster! I run, exercise, and ride horses (English Equestrian) regularly so knowing what foods will give you a natural boost of energy is always helpful!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oh, that's easy. Thanksgiving at Grandma's! She’s an amazing cook and baker. Moist, flavorful turkey, dense, rich stuffing, luscious, smooth, spicy pumpkin pie, fluffy, creamy, mashed potatoes…you drooling yet?
My cooking triumphs
The latest one was for my 16th bday. It was a 3 tiered chocolate fudge brownie cake. Never made a tiered cake before, and the cake was a combo of brownie and fudge cake batter, something I just came up with on a whim (and a birthday is the smartest time to do all this for the first time, right?). The cake was beautiful, the taste was amazing. 'Nuff said.
My cooking tragedies
Ugggh, one too many. But I'll admit, I've learned far more from my mistakes then from my "triumphs". Anyway, for years I flopped at making any type of meringue...
