My Tragedy Can Be Your Gain

Today I discovered a blog entirely devoted to recipes using Trader Joe's ingredients. I'll say that again: there's a blog full of recipes made from Trader Joe's fare.
This is a double whammy for me. First, I cannot believe how awesome that is. Some of the recent recipes include Holiday Tres Leches Cake, Chocolate Truffle Trifle and Black Bean Cornbread. The second feeling I have is one of terrible disappointment - the closest Trader Joe's to my house is 648 miles away. If you've been a committed and longtime purveyor of the Cookie Jar, you're already familiar with my fondness for Trader Joe's. If not, now you know we are devotees; we have even been known to smuggle some of our favorite TJ's items back from Cali on our trips home.
So hopefully you, dear reader, find yourself in closer proximity to Trader Joe's than I do. Try the blog, lots of recipes I wish I could try. The authors have even published a book full of TJ's recipes, if you're into that sort of thing. And if you are, please invite us over for dinner!

Yup, thanks for that. I'm sorry for your pain, but verrry excited by my gain (hopefully not literally) B

The reason I go to Trader Joes is so I DON'T need a recipe...
