Flan de Coco (Coconut Flan)
Overall, the flavor and texture of this recipe were excellent. I made it for a luncheon at work, and it was very popular. This was my first time making flan, and it took me a good 30 minutes to get the sugar melted and get everything assembled. I had some clumps of sugar that did not want to incorporate into the caramel sauce, and I was afraid of overcooking it, so I gently broke them up with a fork and they melted right in. I substituted coconut milk for the 1/2 cup of regular milk, and added 1 tsp. of Mexican vanilla. Next time I will probably leave out the 1/2 cup of sugar. A useful bit of information would be the proper size of the baking dish. I used a 2.5 quart 8" diameter Corningware dish, and I think it was too small. I had to bake it an extra 20 minutes to get the flan to set. I think the extra cooking time caused some problems with the caramel. When I turned it out the next morning, there was still a lot of the caramel stuck to the bottom of the dish, and it was hard like candy. Fortunately, there was just enough liquid caramel to salvage the flan.

Buttermilk Pancakes II
Yummy! This recipe makes a whole bunch of fluffy, tender pancakes. I made just two small changes: I substituted vegetable oil for the melted butter (because I was out of butter), and increased the sugar to 1/4 cup. This recipe fed three people until they were about to burst, and still had about 12 pancakes left. They were very quick and easy to make - no one should ever have to use a mix once they have this recipe.

Asian Coconut Rice
Yummy! So far I have served this with red chicken curry and baked fish. It smells so good when it's cooking, and it really compliments a good Thai or other Asian dish. For you folks who cook on a powerful gas cooktop, be careful of the temperature at which you simmer the rice. You could end up with some overcooked crispies on the bottom.
