Jackie’s Coconut Bread

Have I ever mentioned how much I Love my Mother in law? Seriously, I won the jackpot. I have ALWAYS heard SO MANY horror stories about bad mother in laws and issues, and I was honestly planning on having to work through some things, but, when I met my husband’s Mom I was so excited! I have been around/in the family for six-ish years and never had any problems. She is absolutely wonderful and my kids adore her {and I do, too!} She is an incredible example, and I really look up to her. Not too mention she raised my husband, which is part of the reason he is so amazing! Thank You Jackie! I have learned so much from you already!

Okay, I could go on and on, but I will save that for her birthday card 🙂 I am going to share one of my favorite recipes I got from her. Everyone’s heard of Banana bread, but have you heard of Coconut Bread??? I didn’t think so, so here goes, it is SO GOOD. Like, I can’t stop eating it good. Jackie made it at Christmas one year and I was hooked. Thanks again for sharing the recipe! 🙂
