And also, I hate coconut. I've always hated the texture. The roughness always reminded me of flakes of skin and I hated it (makes you want to eat this pie, huh!?). It got stuck in my teeth and was tough to swallow so I did more picking out coconut than eating whatever it was on.
But for coconut, the filling wasn't bad. I have no idea how the pie tastes because 1) I just made it for Russ and he's not home yet and 2) I probably won't taste it because I have an aversion to coconut. I'll make sure to update on what Russ thinks though. But, from what I tasted, it was very good.
If you want in-depth instructions, the link to the original recipe is great because she takes you step-by-step.
I wish I could do that but I get totally freaked out whenever I'm trying a new recipe. It's like I dive into the recipe, follow the instructions and then run around like a chicken with my head cut off because instead of gathering all my supplies I dove into the recipe unprepared. I'm always worried that I'll screw something up so I read each part like five different times!

Uh... okay, what the hell happened in the oven? Oh well.
Mixing the pie filling together...
I then added the coconut and stirred.
Meringue time! Never... made meringue by myself before... a little intimidated.
After several, several minutes (almost to the point that I was being mesmerized by mixer), it turned to this:
After about ten minutes in the oven, it's done!
