My name is Sarah Shilhavy. I'm a home educated and mom-taught and self taught cook. I am also a grandma-taught and self-taught baker and the youngest of 3 kids (2 older brothers). I was born in the Middle East and lived in the Philippines for almost 5 years (my mom is Filipino), and have also lived in different parts of the US. My parents own Tropical Traditions, the first company to import Virgin Coconut Oil from the Philippines to the US. I manage the coconut recipe blog on Tropical Traditions’ website: www.freecoconutrecipes.com. I've developed many recipes, some gluten-free, using Coconut Flour, and love working with Coconut oil.
