Grilled seafood salad with mango salsa

Mango is in season! 

When cilantro, grilled fish and mango show up to the party you know it’s going to be wild. This is by far one of, if not the best salads I have ever had. Flavors are bursting all over, sweet, salty, spicy, Smokey and everything else in between. A very light and delicious summer salad you will probably want to try.

Mango Lime chicken

Mango is in season! 

No it’s not curry chicken, it’s just mango. Mango and lime and peppers literally. A very flavorful, simple and easy way to use up the extra mango we will all have in our kitchens because its mango season.

Disastrously delicious Mango crunch cake

Mango is in season! 

Have I told yall that I hate to bake? I’m sure I say it in every single cake post. But this next disaster takes the cake (no pun intended…well…maybe a little). The flavors are on point, the texture on point, would I make it again yes, but with some serious changes.

Curry Mango Korean Fried Chicken

Mango is in season!

I can’t recall if I ever blogged about the most delicious Korean fried chicken wings I ever had in my life at Turntable chicken Jazz in NYC. These people know how to make wings! The skin is thin, extremely crispy and light coated with sauce, just pure perfection in every bite. Since tasting them a few months ago I have been really trying to figure out how they do it. Made a few attempts on my own with ok results, delicious but never achieved the superb crisp that chicken jazz does.  Then I decided to bring out the big guns and see if the geniuses at serious eats food lab had taken on the task; praises be to God they pretty much figured it out! I made a few tweaks to their recipe to make the batter perfect for my taste buds and it complemented the epic curry mango sauce.

Mango Ice-cream

Mango is in season! 

Its yummy time once again; If you thought my ice-cream making days were over think again, I have so much more creamy love to give. Last year July was all about ice-cream. Today we are taking it back, using Jeni’s splendid ice-cream base again to make a delicious treat

Spicy mango sweet and sour dogs

Mango is in season! 

This is probably one of the most delicious hotdogs I have ever made. Generally my hot dog grilling consists of sausages, honey, bbq sauce and toppings. Since its mango month I had to attempt to make a delicious mango condiment. This wasn’t exactly the condiment I had planned but it worked out just beautifully all the same.

Mango melon fruit cocktail

Mango is in season!

I think skinless grapes have a special place in fruit heaven, because they are just too epic, especially in this recipe. Who doesn’t love chilled fruit cocktail from the can? A whole lot of people do, so imagine those same fruits instead of being soggy and overly sweet, being fresh, vibrant, and crunchy. Not to mention dripping in a mango melon sauce instead of corn syrup? That’s what’s happening in this post, homemade fruit cocktail.

Mashed potato stuffed meatloaf

"Potato Patata" 

I can’t recall seeing meatloaf served without a side of mashed potatoes and gravy. So why not just stuff the meat loaf with mashed potatoes to begin with? That’s what I did in this post; a very cool way to combine two dishes into one.

Spicy Chicken fried potato wedges

"Potato Patata" 

When I say spicy, I don’t mean peppery I mean full of spices. I basically took every herb I had at the time and threw them at the potatoes. They turned out pretty good, crunchy,  hot and flavorful. Anyone who love potato wedges might want to give this recipe a try.

Sweet potato Onion and chia seed buns

"Potato Patata" 

I am really sorry to disappoint everyone who came here thinking they would find a burger recipe. Nope its potato month remember? So what you will find here, is a really awesome recipe for a sweet potato onion bun with chia seeds.  I finally decided to do a labor intensive potato recipe, and by labor intensive I mean a recipe using yeast and flour, my two culinary enemies.
