Pixie Tangerine

May 8th, 2012 · 3 Comments · Citrus, Tangerine

I just ate three pixie tangerines for lunch without batting an eyelash. And they were good — really good. Don’t worry, I’m not going all fruitarian on you, I can barely succeed at simple things like limiting dairy.

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