Happiest New Year to one and all! It’s Monday, so most of you are probably back on the grind with work, school or whatever else claims your day. During the holidays, we all enjoyed the festivities with food, drink, family and friends. The return to normalcy is never easy, especially if you’re adding a pile of resolutions on top of everything. No major resolutions here. I’m not even going to feel bad about the cake I’m sharing on the blog today. It was actually part of the 2015 Kwanzaa Culinarians series highlighting stories and recipes from a number of bloggers. The cake is a slightly revision of Chef Pierre Thiam’s Sweet Potato and Mango Cake from his new cookbook, Senegal: Modern Senegalese Recipes from the Source to the Bowl. Head over to the site for the complete recipe, as well as a bit about the influences and flavors of Senegalese food. If there’s any resolution I suggest to add to the list, it’s try new things. Starting with this spiced fruit and vegetable-laced cake.
