trader joe’s spring edition finds
April 10th, 2015Mary, productsmary 6 Comments

Time for more Trader Joe’s finds! I’ll call it the “Spring Edition”. These items are mostly new to me, not necessarily new for spring. But it is spring now, so Spring Edition it is!

CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High alerted me to the fact that Danish Kringles were back at Trader Joe’s. I was totally bummed I missed out on them last year (around Christmas they had almond kringles and there were pumpkin kringles in the Fall). I was excited to try the …

I’ve been loving a lot of things lately and this latest find comes from one of my favorite grocery stores: Trader Joe’s. They have a little section in my neighborhood Trader Joe’s with all of the newest products and as soon as I saw this I grabbed it and stuck it in the cart.

[product review] green pea cookie
February 26th, 2015Mary, productsmary 8 Comments

I’m a regular supporter or various things on Kickstarter and I get their emails talking about what projects the staff had backed recently or popular projects. I spied a little Kickstarter link to something called Green Pea Cookie and was instantly curious. Cookies… made with green peas? Say whaaaaat? I’m not even a fan of regular peas by their lonesome self, but I do love me some pea soup so I figured it’d be worth it to back the project …

By the time this post is up, I’ll be in PORTLAND eating whatever it is Portlanders eat. So, here’s a semi lazy post about some recent food finds.

For my birthday, Alyssa got me this box of Sugarfina Caramels. I loved, loved, loved the box plus the goodies instead of it! It was a taster box and had a bunch of fun caramel flavors! The flavors were Dark Chocolate Seat Salt, English Toffee, Fuji Apple, Matcha Green Tea, Mint Chip, Pumpkin …

Oroweat® approached me recently with an offer to try out their new organic bread and to host my own little sandwich making party. It was just after Thanksgiving when Jake, S, my dad and I got together in the kitchen to make a few panini’s for lunch using Thanksgiving leftovers. What else were we going to do with all of that leftover turkey?!

Oroweat has two new organic breads out: a 100% Whole Wheat bread along with a Grains and Seeds …

friday foodie finds / part three
October 17th, 2014etc, Mary, productsmary 10 Comments

I dig doing my “foodie finds” posts and I hope you enjoy them, too! These are all things that didn’t warrant their own full post, but are still worth mentioning! 

Actually this first thing isn’t a “find”. I made these deviled eggs! I don’t even have a real recipe for them. I just scoop out the yolks and then squirt in little mustard, add mayo, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika to taste. Then I add another little dash of paprika …

california grapes demo with chef marcela valladolid
September 26th, 2014etc, Mary, productsmary 8 Comments

Last week I was invited to attend an event on behalf of the California Grapes Commission with spokesperson Chef Marcela Valladolid. We were there to learn more about grapes and how to add grapes into recipes. Apparently you can do more with grapes then just stuffing them in your mouth (or freezing them and putting them in your drinks)!

There was a big beautiful box with three styles of grapes: green, red and black. I honestly have never really purchased black …
