Friends, I like to think ahead to holidays and special occasions, when I’m planning out my recipes to share with you. Sometimes it’s something we are having for dinner that night.

Sometimes it’s just a yummy “bite”, like these Jicama Mint Mango Bites that we noshed on when a few friends stopped by.
