Now that I am blogging full time and my cooking is no longer restricted to only weekends, I’ve been slowly updating photos on the both my blogs that are, um, ugly. I have so much to learn and, to this day, still struggle heavily with my food photography but I’d like to think I’ve come a long way these last three years and can now give these old photos better justice.
For some #TBT fun, here are some before and after pictures of my mango royale(what’s up with the huge mango balls? 😂) and espresso royale icebox cakes.
The ones on the left were taken three years ago and the ones on the right were this weekend. As you can see, the new photos are far from perfect but they are definitely better. And sometimes, that’s all we can ask for.
Anyway, after re-shooting the mango royale, I was left with a few pieces of the fruit which were ripening fast and needed to be used ASAP. I initially planned on doing a Chinese mango and beef stir-fry but since I haven’t posted any baked goods lately, I decided on this mango bread instead.

It’s all a matter of stirring the ingredients together, you don’t even need a mixer! You can easily bake a batch, or two, to bring to potlucks or to give out as homemade gifts. But why would ya? They make the perfect breakfast or any time of the day snack, you’ll want to keep all the yummy slices to yourself. No judgment here. 😉
