It’s that time of year again! Lays Chips has released a new batch of weird-o flavors onto the public for us to vote on. Jake, T and I tried this out last year so let’s see how these “Do Us a Flavor” Lays Chips fair this time around.

trader joe’s spring edition finds
April 10th, 2015 Mary, products mary 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 …

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 …

Here’s another installment of “Foodie Finds!” – various things that don’t warrant their own post filled with products and foods I’ve tried out recently.

There’s a Fresh n’ Easy near my work and I stop by there sometimes to pick up a few things. I spotted some “old time” looking candies. The first one: the Goo Goo Cluster.

I had a bunch of things that didn’t quite constitute a full post, so I’m going to stick them all together and call it “food finds”. Why not!

[housemade gyro with potato salad from wich addiction]
Here’s a terrible photo of something SUPER delicious from Wich Addiction. A couple of weeks ago the special of the week was a housemade gyro with their own tzatziki sauce on a scallion flatbread. I almost ate my screen looking at this beautiful sandwich again. The …
