Do you use coconut/ and or coconut milk in any foods you cook or bake?

I've seen coconut milk in stores that can be added to various things like food dishes to beverages. Up to this point I haven't used it in anything, but I thinking of trying it.

  • I use it a lot.. I use it in different curry dishes, different korma dishes, different rice dishes, and for some deserts.
    You use quite a bit in Indian foods, Thai foods, some Indonesian foods and Jamaican foods. All of which I cook fairly often.
