Coconut Bars- March 2019.

Did I ever tell you that some of my cousins live on St. Thomas? The island in the Caribbean?

I’ve spent many a spring break sitting on a gorgeous beach, enjoying fresh coconut. It’s my inspiration for this recipe. Bake this when you feel the need for tropical breezes and dedicated coconut taste

A rum drink will pair well with this hands-on treat.
