Tropical Morning Muffins

Tropical Morning Muffins

I find it hard to resist a muffin in the morning, especially when it is a homemade muffin that is still slightly warm from the oven. So I don’t try to resist muffins in the morning. I’m even willing to get up a little bit extra early on a weekday to throw together a batch – especially if that batch of muffins smells as good ... Read More »

Mango Coconut Bread

Mango Coconut Bread

Mango is one of those fruits that I typically just eat fresh, rather than saving for a baking project. The firm, juicy fruit has a fantastic texture and flavor – and it is just about irresistible when ripe. But you can actually bake with mangoes, if you are able to hold yourself back, and they are a great fruit to work with. The flesh stays ... Read More »

Mango Bars

Mango Bars

A perfectly ripe mango should have a firm, creamy texture that almost seems to melt in your mouth. They’re so good on their own, that many people don’t bake with them and prefer to eat them as-is.

It was a concoction that incorporated lots of fruit and mini marshmallows in a sweet, creamy sauce. The “sauce” portion usually involved something like sour cream, mayonnaise, Cool Whip or whipped cream. As a kid, I liked that fact ... Read More »

Mango and Blackberry Cobbler

What kind of fruit do you put in cobblers? I tend to use apples and cherries a lot, but will try ti mix it up with different berries from time to time, depending on what’s in season or what frozen berries I have in my freezer that need to be used up. I usually turn to berries by default, but realistically you can put just ... Read More »

Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango

Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango

Almost nothing beats a sweet and creamy mango when it is at peak ripeness. Nothing except the pairing of mango and sticky rice. The thing that really makes the Thai combination delicious is that the rice is lightly sweetened and flavored with coconut milk. Combined with the starchiness of the rice, the coconut milk gives the dessert a very rich texture. It blends well with ... Read More »
