In a pinch, you can go to Hart and The Hunter and get some to go...

I've been wondering about the Spindrift beacause I am a La Croix addict!! I haven't gotten it because it's more expensive than La Croix, and you get half the cans. Is it just bubbly water with a hint of fruit?

The Raspberry Blossoms in the fresh-baked area are fantastic...but you MUST throw them in the oven first (5 min at 400).

Good to know! I've been eyeing those, but thought they wouldn't do as good a job as Cascade, as well...I'll pick them up, much cheaper than Cascade :)

Favorite food items at Disneyland (ex. Club 33)?

It's called Whipp'd, it's on the corner of Fairfax and Santa Monica, by Starbucks.

YAY to the Nourish Shea Butter hand Cream. Thick, very moisturizing, and leaves your hands very soft! Also, I just bought the Hell or High Watermelon Wheat Beer..I'm not much of a beer drinker, but I do enjoy a Hef and other wheat beers in the warm weather. The watermelon intrigued me...Anyone try it yet?

The garlic and herb is a staple...I have it sliced and scrambled in my eggs with veggies for breakfast, or sliced and sauteed with veggies for dinner...I have a fresh package in my fridge, and a backup in my freezer right now! I also made some Zattaran's jambalaya last month, sliced some in there, as well as a can of TJ's white-meat chicken! It was great!

I think (?) that might have been me-I was looking at the spices, hopefully searching for the gone-but-not-forgotten dukkah (RIP), when a nice lady recommended the 21 SS. Love it. Love it so much. Made an awesome marinade with it, as well as put it in my eggs. I'll bet it's perfect on croutons!!! I think tomorrow I'm going to try it on half an avocado, with a squeeze of lemon!

Need Book club dinner ideas

That's the same book we are reading this month!!! Funny.

Is it bad to stop off and pick up a few rotisserie chickens? You could pull all the meat off and onto a platter, and make a bunch of roasted veggies to serve with it, or a salad (one of my favorites) with mixed greens, chunks and shreds from the chicken, dried cranberries, apples and goat cheese, with a balsamic vinagrette. Or you could make a London Broil the night before, and serve cold with a chimmichurri sauce, and a salad.

BEST FRENCH FRIES IN LOS ANGELES

Those are my new favorites...sadly, last time I was there, they were out. Got the beef tallow fries from Horse Thief, but they aren't as good.

House Warming Party

Tacos are always a hit. You could BBQ/ smoke all the meat, and prepare tons of toppings/fillings. Most of the prep can be done the day before, and since everyone makes their own, no one is left out! Mexican corn on the cob is awesome too, and is really easy to make.

Looking for a certain dough recipe...

I'm asking for a friend. He had a recipe that he lost, from a friend who is no longer with us. It's for a nut roll, he said the dough almost like a cross between pie dough and a cinnamon roll. Dense but flaky, I guess? The friend was from Pennslvania and I think was German. That's all I have to go on. Thanks in advance!

I pierced them, tossed them in olive oil and salt, and roasted them. Freaking delicious! Next time I'm going to prepare them the same way, and serve them with some burrata and fresh basil leaves.

Ooohhh yay! I have some TJ's frozen turkey burgers in my freezer!! I'll try it on that!!!

Good point :) I sometimes forget about little things like sugar, calories, etc... The soft and juicy is just so damn good, as is the chili spiced mango!

Why buy the Just Mango when you can buy the Soft and Juicy Mango????

YAY to the sour gummies (new item). Shaped like little T's and J's, they come in lemon, grapefruit, lime and tangerine. Yummy and super sour!

Trader Joe's YAY/MEH/NAY Thread - May 2015 [OLD]

YAY to the 70-whatever percent dark chocolate bar (in the florescent green box wrapper at the checkout). Super yummy and rich.
YAY to the penguin gummy tummies- for some reason I always thought they were some kind of childrens chewable medicine (which makes no sense in the candy aisle). I think the "tummies" in the name threw me off. But I bought some and they're super good. There's liquid stuff in the tummies.

I love the Cubano wrap! You have to dip it in the mustard sauce, though. I had no idea it was so many calories, though....eeek.

I didn't buy it (because I'm trying to eat a little better) but they were sampling the mac and cheese with chopped up sriracha bacon jerky in it. Freaking delicious!!!!!!

Savory Snack - no wheat

It's been said, but deviled eggs. Always a hit.

Best thing you've found at a 99ยข Only Store?

Looking at the pics, I think we might go to the same 99 cent store!

Good Hamburger Buns in Los Angeles

What about ciabatta rolls? I really like them in place of hamburger buns. Gelsons has good ones.

My FAVORITE in summertime!!!

looking for healthy dessert recipes!

This is one I LOVE!!! There's nothing processed and there's no added sugar-but just know that sugar is sugar no matter where it comes from-meaning that there are healthier dessert options, but not any that are really healthy, if that makes sense!

12-15 dates, soaked and de-seeded
1 C raw walnuts
1/2 C or so of shredded coconut (no added sugar), with another 1/2 C or so set aside
a handful of dried cherries (no added sugar)
coconut oil

put all ingredients in a food processor until a paste is formed. Roll into balls about the size of a large marble, then roll in coconut. For added yumminess, roll paste around a fresh raspberry, then roll into ball and roll in coconut. Lay all the balls on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, then freeze. When they are frozen, put into a gallon ziplock, then keep in freezer. For the ones with a raspberry, you'll need to let them thaw for a few minutes. The other ones (without the raspberry) pretty much thaw on contact with your mouth, because of the coconut oil. They are so freaking good and addictive!!!
