Mango Chili Tofu Stir Fry

Mango-Chili Tofu Stir-Fry – A Guest Post for Better Homes & Gardens

Is there anything more satisfying than taking a meaty recipe and making it vegetarian? Okay, yes, there are probably a lot of things more satisfying than that. (Winning the lottery? Definitely more satisfying.) But I still love that feeling of victory I get when I take something I can’t eat and make it into something…

Sweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas Recipe

Recipe | Sweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas + Homemade Fajita Seasoning Mix

Champagne mangoes are heeeere! I knew they’d be in season again soon, so I’ve been stalking Whole Foods waiting for the glorious day when there’s a huge crate of them front and center in the produce section.

It’s been a while since I posted a fruit leather recipe here and since I get requests for them once in a while, I thought I’d post a new one today–mango! While I’m not one to discriminate when it comes to fruit leather, I think mango and banana are my two favorites because both can…

Sweet Charlie Strawberries

What I Ate This Week | It’s strawberry season!

Last Saturday we trekked to Raleigh to go to the state farmers market. Despite getting caught in a sudden downpour, it was worth the trip: we left with bags brimming full of juicy red strawberries, freshly baked bread, and some more plants for the garden.

Recipe | Coconut Mango Overnight Oatmeal

Having never lived in the tropics, I can’t really tell you when mango season is. But I do know that a few times a year, there’s suddenly an abundance of champagne mangoes at the grocery store.

Strawberry Mango Fizz Smoothie

Recipe: Strawberry Mango Fizz Smoothie

I love smoothies, especially during summertime. They’re cold and fruity and creamy–what’s not to love? Oh, that’s right, the calories. My favorite smoothie from a smoothie place that shall remain nameless is over 400 calories. For the medium size. For a smoothie that contains mango, green tea, and vanilla frozen yogurt.

Most of my worst ideas come to me in the middle of the night. The cats will wake me up or something else will startle me out of my sleep, and suddenly I’m thinking that I should really just quit my job and sell macaroons for a living. Or that it would be a good…
