Oh yum!

Thursday, March 19, 2009 |
There is just something about the impending arrival of spring that makes me crave lemon and coconut flavored goodies. I think it may have something to do with the Easter holiday and the revival of all that is green, fresh and bright!

I made this for dessert recently. We were invited to our friends along with another couple for dinner. I knew instantly what I wanted to bring~ coconut creme cake with whip creme topping sprinkled with toasted coconut. It didn't disappoint and some even had seconds *names are being withheld for protection purposes : ) *
I can't say that it is diet friendly but,
it does wonders for your winter gray disposition!
