posted in WHAT CAN I SAY?
Avocado
Avocado is probably my favorite fruit, because of the fact that despite being a fruit, it's an excellent ingredient in so many savory dishes.  My favorite use of the avocado is for making guacamole, which is a perfect thing to go with meats like chicken or steak, and of course, as the ideal dip for tortilla chips.

Fruits
Nature's candy. Tastes good, provides sugars that won't kill you and essential vitamins, and comes in a million different varieties. I usually try to eat fruit with my breakfast.
posted a Quick Tip about Apple Juice. September 30, 2011
Apple Juice
Apple Juice is one of the most used juice in our household. It's one of the only juices we give our 2 yr old daughter as if she spills it--no stains. Plus it's the one with the least chance of allergic reactions. But not only that..when you are sick with one of those nasty colds, Warm up a cup of apple juice and steep a nice herbal Tea in the hot apple juice instead of water. You will have a FEEL …

grapes
If you buy grapes, make sure they're seeded because grape seeds are one of the foulest-tasting things on the planet. The grapes themselves are nice and sweet, but I have to take points away for their lack of versatility. There's not a whole lot that can really be done with grapes unless you put them into the sun to turn them into raisins.

Lemon
Full of useful antioxidants, and that is the saving grace of the lemon. Otherwise, these suckers are VERY sour, and you'll definitely be getting those sour lips if you eat one on its own. Sugar can be a big help in defusing the sour flavor, but you're better off just adding lemon juice or lemons to larger meals as light flavoring.

Pineapple
A bit too tangy for my own personal tastes, but you do have to deal with the fact that pineapples are large parts of fruit cocktails. Also, they can make a good pizza topping. Seriously. Just makes sure the other toppings you're using - if there are any - go with the pineapple.

Blueberries
I always get confused with this one and Blackberry but I don't care since I love them both

Mango
Love this fruit...we used to call the sides of it as "Cheeks" and the boney middle as the "nose". This is so good and goes well with almost anything. Green sour mangoes can go with rice and sweet mangoes make excellent brulee and sorbet. Mango rules!

Pineapple
The one fruit that has a lot of 'eyes' (you should read the Philippine legend behind it) so it can 'see' you....but unfortunately, it cannot run away from being harvested LOL!
posted a Quick Tip about Coconut. July 01, 2011
posted in Love Bites
Coconut
The coco-nut nut is a giant nut but if you eat too much of it, you'll get a little sick. The co-co-nut nut is a BIG BIG Nut but this delicious "Nut" is not a Nut! It's a coco-fruit, from the coco-tree from the cocoa family!

Lime
Another one of the underrated flavors, lime gives a sweet shot of flavor in a lot of things without the tang of a lemon. It goes well in a lot of things, and can be an unexpectedly pleasant ingredient in a lot of foods in which you wouldn't otherwise expect to see a fruit. Actual lime is beneficial for health, so if you add lime, be sure it isn't an imitation.

Strawberry
My favorite sweet fruit to just munch on. They go well with many different kinds of desserts.

banana
My favorite source of replenishing nutrients after a long bicycle ride, and is filling enough to kick hunger pangs without actually filling you up.
posted a Quick Tip about Soursop. May 10, 2011
posted in Fruit Lovers
Soursop
On its own, eaten as a fruit or drank as a juice, Soursop is refreshing. It has a unique taste and impossible to describe. Having tried it, one would never forget it. Not 'stinky' like Durian as some may choose to define Durian, it certainly is in a class of its own.

posted in Love Bites
Avocado
It is rich and used abundantly in Japanese and Indonesian cuisine. It can be eaten raw or as the Japanese likes it, in California Roll. Alternatively, as a dessert in Indonesian cuisine, it's unbeatable when mixed with brown sugar and a tinge of coffee. A most recent discovery is Avocado mixed with Soursop or alternatively Mung beans.                …

Green Seedless Grapes
Some of them are so sweet that I love mixing them with cereals and milk even! Great on its own and I do love them "crunchy"!

Watermelon
I love watermelon. It's not only a thirst quencher, it can even be eaten as a meal! Red is beautiful!      Try not to buy watermelon that's been cut up into pieces or half as germs germinate easily in this fruit if the temperature is hot. Hence, it's best to finish up this fruit as soon as it's cut!

Lychee
Another one of the heaty fruits. Lychee looks like Longan internally but doesn't quite taste like it. When it's in season, it's awesome! It is less crunchy & chewy but a lot sweeter and juicier!

posted in Fruit Lovers
Jackfruit
This one has a nice aroma (not the same as Durian but more acceptable to the foreigners) & best if eaten with grass jelly & coconut juice. It's tasty on its own too and the seeds can be cooked and eaten as well. Very versatile fruit.      In Thailand, Jackfruit has been dried and processed into Jackfruit chips which is a great snack if you like it sweet!

Mangosteen
Mangosteen is cooling and in Asia, some eat them as a companion to Durian as Mangosteen is known to have a cool down effect while Durian is 'heaty' (accordinng to the Chinese).
