I love to cook. I just wish I was good at it.
That’s why anytime my hubby plays in the kitchen, I stand back and cheer him on.
He’s amazing with the oven or grill or sauté pan.
Really, this is not fair for an unsuccessful mommy-chef like me who diligently selects five-star recipes and follows them to the teaspoon. But most meals turn out a seven.
Or worse, a five.
(We rate meals on a one to 10 scale. This helps my visual mind decide if it’s worth the time to recreate since 98 percent of our meals are homemade.)
With three oversized mango trees shading our yard, my husband experimented with this juicy fruit this year. The result?
I realize this is my first food post, but I can’t let this recipe sit tucked in a drawer, unsampled by many who happen to like mangoes. Or banana bread, for that matter, since the mango flavor is so subtle, you’ll question if it’s even in there.
On those days your craving a moist, salty-sweet treat that makes you want to scoop the buttery bread from the pan, well…you’ve come to the right place.
For all those Facebookers who asked for Jason’s Mango Bread

Not the prettiest picture, but one bite and you’ll thank me. Or rather, thank Jason.
