Tahitian Coconut Bread (this is a recipe we got at the Polynesian Cultural Center while in Hawaii!!!)
2c coconut
4c flour
2t baking powder
1 1/2c sugar
1 1/2c water

1.  Combine coconut, sugar, and water
2.  Blend flour and baking powder
3.  Mix all together into a doughy mix adding a little flour so it's not too sticky
4.  Form individual loaves, and wrap each loaf in aluminum foil and bake.
5.  Bake at 350 for 1-1 1/2 hours

Homemade Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt
Plain Greek Yogurt makes a great base for this dessert--I used the Chobani brand.  For each two cups of yogurt, mix in 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 1/2-1 cup of powdered sugar.  

1.  Mix to your desired peanut-buttery-ness and sweetness.  
2.  Freeze
3.  Thaw on counter for about a half hour before serving.
4.  Fresh fruit is really yummy as a topping!  I've tried it with peaches so far, but there are tons of choices!
