Happy Friday!
ON a recent trip to Trader Joe's here's what I found, tried, liked, hated.
Haven't tried, but it looked fairly moist.
Hubby loved it, I hated it. Not nearly enough cheese on it.
The crust was ok.
This is new (and good news!)
This was pretty good. Not quite danish, but close enough.
These were good, small but good.
Loved these!
Haven't tried these.  Have you?
These were ok, very dry.  If you make them, add a few splashes of cream to dough before baking.
I LOVED these!
Haven't tried these.  Have you?
Haven't tried these. You?
Pretty good!
Fairly good.
Not good.  I wanted to like them, but there is no cheese flavor whatsoever.
Anyone tried this?

We've had three storms, one was a blizzard, and this weekend we're expecting another one.
I pray all these storms are a nice prelude to a beautiful, sunny, non-rain filled spring & summer.

Congrats Lori please email me your shipping address.
Have a great weekend all!


  1. Why did I have to see this on an empty stomach (with equally empty cupboards!)? Those blueberry scones are calling to me. Literally. :D

  2. That corn chowder sounds amazing! Love seeing all of your TJs products!!

  3. How did you know that I needed rocket crackers?

  4. Those chili lime mixed nuts sound so good! Love all your weekly links.

  5. I miss Trader Joe's so much, I don't have anything even vaguely like it near me.

  6. thanks for the link love ;)

  7. the Sea Salt & Pepper Chips are fantastic! Went looking for more today at my local store but they were out :(

  8. Well I am ridiculously hungry after going through that list. I can't even get half of those products here in Ireland either. *cry*
    Thank you for the link love. x

  9. I made Averie Cook's Peanut Payday Bars with Biscoff and Gingerbread Peeps and they were crazy good! One of the best things I've ever made. Here's the link if you want to look: www.piesandplots.net/gingerbread-marshmallow-biscoff-bars

  10. So many tasty things to try from Trader Joe's! I am intrigued by your peanut butter toast topped with egg & bacon.

  11. As a matter of fact, I still have the lemon curd in my fridge. Comes in handy occasionally. Like when making spontaneous crepes!

  12. You've probably tried the Salt & Pepper crisps by now but they are AWESOME! Also, how is that GF Flour? Want to pick it up on my next TJ's trip!


I love your comments!
