    My mother-in-law gave me her TOP SECRET recipe for the best carrot cake ever, but she didn’t want me to share it with anyone else. (Why do people do this? I’m quite certain she didn’t develop the recipe herself.) It’s too good not to share. So take it if you’d like, and leave one if you want to!

    2 c. all purpose flour
    2 c. sugar
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp salt
    2 tsp cinnamon
    4 eggs
    1 c. cooking oil
    4 c. (1 lb.) grated carrots, raw
    1/2-1 c. chopped pecans
    3/4 – 1 c. raisins
    1 recipe cream cheese frosting (your choice)

    Thoroughly stir together flour, sugar, soda, salt, and cinnamon. In large mixing bowl, beat eggs till frothy. Slowly beat in oil. Gradually add flour mixture, beating till smooth. Mix in carrots, nuts, and raisins. Pour into 3 greased and floured 8″ round pans. Bake at 350 for 25-30 min. or till done. Cool in pans 10 min., remove from pans and cool completely on racks. Fill and frost with cream cheese frosting. Decorate top with pecan halves.

    I have a little over 1/2 a can of coconut milk that I need to do something with. Soup? Dessert? Any recipes or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

    I my husband to get me some cream of coconut for pina coladas and he came home with unsweetened Thai coconut milk instead. I am planning a girls night tomorrow and was planning to make pina coladas. Is there a recipe using unsweetened coconut milk? I don’t want to waste it. I will go hunt down some cream of coconut if I need to. Thanks!

    I want a dipping sauce for shrimp that doesn’t require coconut milk. I do have coconut flakes.

    I have seen Indian recipes calling for coconut milk, but the directions called for an infusion you make yourself from fresh or dry coconut infused in hot milk / strained.

    But recently, I have seen recipes calling for canned coconut milk ~ not the coconut cream ~ and unsweetened coconut milk, too?

    Can you make your own, or do you simply buy it?

    Thank you so much

    I just bought a fresh coconut and I have a recipe for making coconut milk from the juice and some of the meat too. But I haven’t been able to locate any good recipes to use it. I already have the recipes for cakes, puddings, and custards. I was hoping to find something like dessert bars or something else yummy. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
    I don’t have an ice cream maker. But I wish I did.

    I just got a coconut as a gift from my neighbor and I cracked it open, poured out the water into a cup, and scooped out all the flesh. Don’t I have to grind the flesh? I don’t know, I just want to make coconut milk because I want to know what it tastes like.

    Here’s the recipe:

    1 1/2 cups of wholemeal self raising flour
    2 cups of buttermilk
    2 eggs
    3 tablespoons of pure floral honey or pure maple syrup
    1/2 a cup of frozen blueberries
    1/2 a cup of frozen raspberries
    Olive oil spray

    Or, if coconut milk won’t work can I use sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk?
    I just haven’t got any buttermilk and could really go for some healthy pancakes…

    I am going to try to make some Indian rice and it calls for cardamom pods. I am wondering if you save and reuse them, throw them away, any other tips about them?

  13. posted by Scott Bull on Mar 26, 2013

    If i put some cardamom pods, a bay leaf and some turmeric in while it cooks will it be tasty?
    Other recipes i’ve found have more spices in but i’ve already spent a fortune on ingredients and don’t want to buy any more. Will this do?
