Project Fairytale: Out of Love for Mango

I really think that if you are on the same page with another cook you can you can learn from her / his experiences and you can obtain similar results(or at least they will come out ok). If the recipe is great but you don’t really get all the instructions and the style is not representing you, if you feel that is not your voice, saying those things, usually the recipe will fail. Or at least this is the case with me. After trying Jen’s caramel sauce recipe (it’s perfection) and her strawberry cream cheese coffee cake, it’s time for a something new: the mango honey dip and chicken tenders with crispy cashew and coconut. I am not a big fan of cooking chicken, I would rather have beef or any kind of sea monster (fish or any other seafood), but I love this idea (and loooove mango!!!) 🙂
