What a great story. And that is a good idea to use a little coconut in the dough, thanks for sharing and have a good day, Donna

When I was a little girl, one of the first things I learned how to bake was chocolate chip cookies. Both my parents encouraged my interest in baking, but my dad was especially encouraging, since he always wanted to eat whatever I made. He bought me several children's cookbooks back then, which I still have. Anyhow, whenever I made chocolate chip cookies, all my dad wanted was the raw dough! He would get a big soup spoon out of the drawer in the kitchen and attack the bowl of raw dough while I wasn't looking ... and he would take HUGE bites of the stuff. He ate cookie dough like some men would eat a steak. I did everything I could to keep him away from the unfinished baked goods. Hiding the bowl of dough wasn't very successful; he would always find it. I finally figured out that if I added coconut to the dough, he would leave it alone, since he didn't like coconut very much. The "coconut defense" turned out to be how I learned to experiment with recipes, adding my own ingredients and creating my own variations on recipes.

Not only did your dad help you with creative cooking, he also taught you how to take care of yourself and your baking supplies when necessary! What a great story.
