May mango month. May mango month. Try saying that 10 times fast! Mango is another ingredient that is growing on me, but I’m feeling very inspired. This is truly a versatile fruit that can be used in all kinds of dishes from salads, to drinks, to condiments. I’m really looking forward to seeing what amazing and creative recipes everyone links up this month.
I personally love to use mango in savory ways. Perhaps I’ll grill some, or cook it with chiles and other spicy flavors. I guess we’ll wait and see what the month brings!
I know that winter just won’t leave in certain parts of the country, and for that I am truly, TRULY sorry. I sincerely hope that the snow will leave soon and you can all start enjoying local, seasonal foods. In the meantime, go buy a mango, cook something tropical, link up your recipe, and dream of sunnier days.
The MANGO LINK PARTY is now open!

I know I probably say this every year, but I can’t believe it’s August already! July is a month that always seems to fly by for me with the 4th and a vacation usually thrown into that month, I guess it’s no surprise. This August we’ll be using watermelon as our featured ingredient. This works out great for me, as watermelon has been one of my main pregnancy cravings! I’ve been going through about one per week all summer. And even though I’m not sick of it yet, I’m looking forward to using it in some recipes instead of just eating it plain.
There are a lot of recipes out there, both sweet and savory, so don’t be afraid to try something new. Those tomato and watermelon salads are actually good! Betsy and I are looking forward to seeing your watermelon recipes on our link page here. But we’ve also got last year’s corn and peach link parties live! So feel free to visit and share some recipes of your own or just browse around for some ideas.
