Hello! Everybody knows I'm crazy about coconut oil. Not many though knows that coconut milk is essentially just as good as the healthiest oil on the planet, coconut oil.

I like your use of coconut milk and coconut oil in your recipe. And that can only mean one thing for me. I have got to give your wonderful Potato Stew recipe a shot, soon. :-)

Thanks a lot!
