My husband lived in American Samoa for three years as a child (ages 8–11) while his parents taught at the LDS church school there. Eight years later his dream came true and he was honored to serve as an LDS missionary in both Western and American Samoa for two years.

Sam loves the Samoan people and everything Polynesian. One of those things he came to love is anything with coconut. For his birthday this year, I looked for a coconut recipe that was a little different for his birthday cake. We ate this at our family party last night and it was a delicious hit. Thanks Paula Deen!
