Mounds Bars.  Almond Joy.  Those little coconut macaroon cookies you can {usually} get at the Chinese buffet.  The 4-layer coconut cake my mother-in-law makes each year for Christmas dinner.  

What do all these things have in common? 

One of my absolute favorite things ... Coconut!  

And I can't get enough of these coconut gems.  Each and every one.

This classic Coconut Pie recipe is from my mother-in-law, and it's truly the best coconut pie I've ever had.

I have always had quite a liking for the rich sweetness of coconut.  In fact, I've even on occasion been known to choose it over chocolate.  Which for a confirmed choc-a-holic, is saying a lot.  While admittedly, the little coconut macaroon cookies you get at the Chinese buffet can  be a tad on the dry side, I'll still go for one {or three...} every time.

But do you want to know what beats all these coconut goodies, hands-down?

I treated myself this weekend.  To one of my absolute, absolute favorite treats ... fresh-picked strawberries.

Not strawberries from the grocery store ~ strawberries freshly ripened from the local fields.  When it comes to berries, there's just nothing better.

And then I came home and treated myself some more ... with this scrumptious fresh strawberry cobbler.  Made with those sweet, juicy, fresh-from-the-field strawberries.  Sooooo good ... and soooooooo easy.

Made with just five simple ingredients, this cobbler comes together in a flash!  All it takes is fresh strawberries and a few basic pantry staples.  You just can't beat a recipe like that.

I may just have a new favorite fruit dessert.  

I don't know why I didn't think of this before.  Apple crisp? ...  Make it all the time.  Pear crisp? ... Yes, with walnuts.  It's divine!  But blueberry crisp?  Took me forever to think of it.  

And now that I've tried it, I'm hooked.

Southern Strawberry-Coconut Punch Bowl Cake

So you've heard of a trifle, right?  But what about a punch bowl cake?  Your familiarity with this term probably depends upon where you live.

Because the term "punch bowl cake" is a decidedly Southern thing.

Yes, in the South we call these beautifully layered, absolutely creamily delicious desserts punch bowl cakes.  Layers of cake pieces, fresh fruit, and something yummy-and-creamy are all piled together in a gorgeous glass bowl.  And the result is nothing short of amazingly delicious.

The glass bowl, of course, just so happens to quite frequently double as a punch bowl.  And you guessed it, that's exactly how these cakes got their name.
