As someone who can’t eat gluten, this book REALLY appeals to me – I am always looking for new recipes. And I love coconut oil. We have it in the house for a number of different reasons but I often forget to use it for cooking (how strange is that!). Would love a chance to go through the recipes in this book!


Oh I love coconut oil! I’d love to know some new ways of using it, particularly for baking. Right now I used it for popping popcorn and it adds SUCH delicious flavour.


because I have heard so many great things about coconut oil, and have absolutely no idea how to use it!

My mother-in-law has started to eat gluten-free and it’d be great to have some gluten-free recipes to share. Also, I have a tub of coconut oil at home and I’d love some creative ideas 😉

Terri O'D

I have heard a lot pf good things about coconut oil and this would be a great way to start learning how to use it in foods


I ADORE coconut oil! In my coffee, face, hair, legs.. I once used it as sunscreen and boy did I find out quickly that it does NOT work.. although it helped soothe my sunburn afterwards! Not only that but it’s really neat to (potentially) own a cookbook written by someone local, how amazing is that!!


I’ve hear about cooking with coconut oil but have never bought it to try it. This would be a great start

Jacqueline Yau

I’m totally into cooking, I wet to culinary school but soon found my passion in baking. I would love to explore more in the culinary field and learn more about cooking with coconut oil!

Laureen Fox

I would love to have a copy of Elisabeth’s cookbook. I’m gluten free and have used coconut oil for years. This year I’ve decided to try grain free…new recipes yay!

Been reading Elizabeth Nyland’s work a long time. I really enjoy her passion and talent. I’d just buy her book to have printed copies of her amazing photography.

The fact that it’s a cookbook is just bonus!

Maggie K.

I am a hug fan of coconut and I would love to learn some new ways to use it so this book would be amazing to have!

Paige Callahan

I have a ton of coconut oil and butter and would love some new ways to use them!


I would honestly love to win this because I have an excess amount of coconut oil in my house. I was given it and while I use it for a moisturizer and night time eye cream, I cant seem to find any recipes that use coconut oil. If I had an actual book with prepared meals in it, I would be more willing to cook with it!


I’ve heard good things about this cookbook, and would love to experiment with more coconut oil recipes. As a dietitian, I’m always wanting to get to know ingredients more to better advise clients 🙂
