When I was at Trader Joe’s the other day, I picked up one of my favorite things
I can’t believe it’s been a few months since I’ve had these orange gems in my life. I just kind of forgot to replenish my stash and buy some. Bad move on my part. Glad I’ve rectified that problem.
I could take down half the bag at a sitting if I didn’t care about possibly turning myself orange
I love the texture of frozen fruit and I think it actually gets sweeter upon thawing. Could be my imagination though.
I prefer my grapes frozen
And I like bananas best when frozen
And mango is no exception: frozen please
The chunks just kind of melt in my mouth as they unfreeze. Mmm, good!
You can pair bananas + mangoes for
And apples are also back
Raw Vegan GF Apple Crumble is really good
And it’s easy and no-bake and I prefer it to baked crumbles and crisps
But mango anything will always steal the show for me:
Make Mango Ginger Maple Tofu with the chutney (or use apricot preserves or peach jam or similar if you don’t have mango chutney)
And make No Bake White Chocolate & Mango Cookie Dough Bites with dried mango
Told you I love mango and I’m glad it’s back!

Most everything in the post could be made with apricots, nectarines, peaches or plums.

“Sooo excited to try the caramel cheesecake!”
Enjoy your sweet treats ladies!
From my last post, Disses & Kisses, thanks for the support about my recipes being swiped and re-posted on other blogs.
What’s happening is somehow the spam content farms are getting a hold of my content and then just farming it out and posting it on their own sites but as Evan pointed out, it’s likely not even a human doing it. Grrr. Spam and spammers are the worst!
Good thing there were some Kisses of the Week, too.
1. Any foods you’ve forgotten about lately and are glad to have back in your life or need to reincorporate back into your life, asap?
I’ll be honest, I do love Vegenaise but recently I was out, didn’t want to make a special trip to Whole Foods just for it, and picked up a jar of Miracle Whip at the grocery store. And yes, I loved it growing up, and love it still.
And also, Golden Grahams. Childhood staple for me that I haven’t had in about a decade!
Yes, there is a recipe coming using them
2. Do you like mangoes?
Clearly, I do. Big time.
Enjoy your weekend!
