Friday Round-Up: Mango Recipes

We are heading into mango season. Enjoy this tropical and versatile treat a multitude of ways! I wholeheartedly believe in the eat local movement.

Lemon-Apricot Sticky Buns

Lemon-Apricot Sticky Buns are sweet, tart, and gooey. But they aren’t low-calorie or diabetic-friendly! A perfect once-per-year treat, maybe for Easter?   Who doesn’t love sticky buns?
