I bought some coconut oil, expensive stuff, so what do I use it for?
I use it like butter - spread it on bread, fry things in it . . . you can even eat it with a spoon or stir it into a hot drink (kinda like hot buttered rum, y'know?). Here are a few threads where we've discussed it:

I use mine in place of butter in any cookie or muffin recipe. I also use it to fry my eggs and veggies in. I like to spread it on my low carb bran crackers. Normally mine is a solid, but we had our first warm weather and now it is a liquid. I think I may store it in the fridge for the summer. If you go to a lot of low carb websites they will have a lot of recipes for coconut oil. Some people stir it into their coffee in the morning. When all else fails it is great on your skin and as a moisturizing treatment for your hair.
