I am a Mango fan, a die hard fan ! I am not a fruit person, my hubby on the other hand is a fruitoman and he eats all kinds of fruits and the contradiction in our case is, my fruit loving hubby doesnt like mangoes and me who doesnt eat fruits can eat 3-4 mangoes in a go ! Till now I haven't seen any one who doesnt like mangoes so S might fall be a rare species, but the good thing is when we buy mangoes I get to eat most of it as lil A is also not much into mangoes :) Should I say I was gleamed when I saw cheeses cake as this months Baking partners challenge by Swathi of Zest south Indian Kitchen.
