Brainstorming for recipe ideas is one of the greatest pleasures of writing. I think them up while in the shower, washing the dishes, driving to work. It is a 24/7 engagement. Friends and family love to participate in this phase, offering some terrific and some rather bizarre combinations. My niece, Lauren, requested that I create something using coffee and coconut together. It’s not something you see often, but it may quickly become one of your favorites. If you need a chocolate fix, these taste great with chocolate sauce.
