Fruit is Fabulous: An Alphabet Book

May 15th, 2012 · 9 Comments · Maven

I’m borrowing a concept from Ms. Havi Brooks today and using this blog post to convene an “Enthusiastic.” An Enthusiastic is like “show and tell” but for grown ups and it is super duper fun. Everyone gets to be very enthusiastic! (obviously) And there is often lots of smiling and cheering and throwing sparkling confetti [...]

I am thrilled to be participating in the 2012 Share our Strength Food Blogger Bakesale to help fight childhood hunger. The San Diego chapter of food bloggers has set a goal [...]

Apple Inc. planting fruit trees on their new campus!

March 15th, 2012 · No Comments · Apple, Maven

Adam over at Adam’s Apples posted a link today that I just had to share from one of America’s most loved and hated companies, Apple. This wouldn’t necessarily be news in my opinion except that Apple planting apples is somewhat clever and I’m a bit of a sucker for that kind of thing — like [...]

8 fun ways to eat more fruit!

February 21st, 2012 · 6 Comments · Maven

One of the best parts about writing this blog is that it forces me to eat more fruit. You may think this comes naturally to me, but I assure you it does not. I am way more inclined to stop and get french fries than to eat a healthy piece of fruit. In fact, if [...]

November 24th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Maven, Nut, Tangerine

But first… a story! (Or if you just want the gift giving guide, you can get right to it here.) I have a goofy relationship with holidays. On the surface it doesn’t seem weird at all. I love them! I adore Halloween and Thanksgiving and Hanukkah and Christmas (I grew up in a joint household [...]

Fruit Ninja!

June 3rd, 2010 · 2 Comments · Maven

Ahem… Is this thing on? Testing. Testing. 1-2-3. Right. So…. I have had my wrist slapped ever-so politely by a few people lately about the apparent abandonment of the old fruit blog.  So I am here to make it right. I have tons and tons of excuses.

10 Ways to Cook with a Tangerine

February 27th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Citrus, mandarin, Maven, orange, recipe, tangelo, Tangerine

I am seriously in love with tangerines. I know they are all actually mandarins, but for some reason using that word seems pretentious to me, somewhat akin to appositely using the word “apposite” in a sentence outside of language arts class. Anyway, I grew up calling them all tangerines and so it will be. As it [...]

10 Ways to Cook With a Lime

February 15th, 2010 · 11 Comments · Citrus, Lime, Maven, recipe

In my world, where I am regularly tasting fruit I’ve never seen before and may or may not know how to pronounce (I’m talking to you Carambola and Rambutan), sometimes I can get bored with the simple pleasures that are easy to access. Limes are one of those basic fruits that I tend to take [...]
