I thought heating coconut oil or olive oil

(both are very good for you) above 350 degress is a BIG No, No. Then again, I only use the extra virgin types, for better health.

Thanks for the tip about soaking potatoes in water before frying to make them soft inside and cripsy outside. Can this be done baking, by coating the "fries" in oil instead of deep frying?

You have to be careful about stevia, too. I can't remember the reason but, I don't use it anymore and try to use organic sugar instead. You have to read labels carefully when buying stevia (and most other things these days). I believe that what nature provides (unaltered by GMOs) is better in every way, including real (organic) sugar.
