What every Trader Joe's shopper has been waiting for...
By Shirley Hutcheson - October 13, 2009
I am a frequent shopper of Trader Joe's; and this gem of a cooking book has enticed me to explore deep into the crevasses of my "local Joe". Not only have the recipes encouraged me to try more TJ's products, Cherie Mercer Twohy has inspired me to try new flavors and combination's of foods with her wisdom from her "years" of shopping at Trader Joe's and as a professionally trained chef.
You will want to read this cook book from cover to cover. The introduction is FILLED with how to get the best from your Trader Joe's, and most of the recipes include tips and/or a personal comment and sometimes a bit of humor, "Dental floss works great for cutting the goat cheese--just make sure to use the plain version, not the minty-fresh."
If you shop at Trader Joe's, you are probably concerned with the quality of food you eat. With this book you get the quality of TJ's products included in recipes that will put smiles on the faces of your family and friends and build your... read more
Great Recipes Incorporating Trader Joe's Ingredients
By M. Hill - January 7, 2010
I have great affection for Trader Joe's (TJ's) grocery stores but unfortunately there are none in Colorado. Trips for business and pleasure usually include a stop at any local shops so my pantry can be restocked. Knowing my appreciation of TJ's wonderful products this book was a well thought out gift that I received this past Christmas.
The author deserves recognition for including over 150 recipes when the trend of cookbooks I've recently looked at is around 60 to 70. Granted, some of the recipes are quite brief - like Cherry Crostini with Pecorino Romano which only has four ingredients - one of which is a loaf of bread -- but most have a range of complexity from easy to somewhat advanced.
Recipes I've tested include Chile Crab Chowder, Roasted Mushroom Polenta Stacks, Turkey with Green Chile Sauce and Roasted Asparagus with Hazelnuts and Clementines. Without fail, the results were delicious and all are dishes I will definitely prepare again. The author is... read more
I love TJ's and love this Cookbook!
By andiesenji - August 31, 2010
I shop regularly at Trader Joe's, even though it is nearly a half-hour drive for me when traffic is light, at times longer. It doesn't matter, the trip is worth it because at the end I find so many things at Tj's that fit so well into my foodie life. This cookbook has some wonderful recipes for the ingredients found at TJ's and many are easy and quick to make, especially when one has guests that drop in with no warning. Happens to me fairly often. Many of the dishes are elegant enough to be served to special guests but require much less time than the traditional and the fact that they are labeled for people with restrictive diets, gluten-free, vegetarian and etc., is especially helpful. The recipes are easy enough for the novice cook and yet won't disappoint the experienced cook because some of the combinations are inspired. I'm a very adventurous cook with 50+ years of cooking experience and I found some things that had never occurred to me to put... read more
