Trader Joe's Sweet Potato Pie with Maple and Bourbon, reviewed

The freezer case at Trader Joe’s is full of interesting goodies, particularly when it comes to desserts. You’ll always find ice creams, macarons and cakes in seasonal flavors, just waiting to be served up at a holiday gathering. One new addition to the case is their Sweet Potato Pie with a touch of Maple Bourbon flavor. That pie name is quite a mouthful and one ... Read More »

Trader Joe's Cherry Pie Filling, reviewed

Trader Joe's Mini Cinnamon Sugar Churros, reviewed

Churros have been a favorite treat of mine since childhood. Unlike cookies and cupcakes, which were relatively easy to come by on a daily basis, churros were the sort of treat that you could only find at the fair or at Disneyland.

Trader Joe’s Single Origin Huila Unsweetened Baking Chocolate, reviewed

Trader Joe's Single Origin Hula Unsweetened Baking Chocolate

Unsweetened chocolate is a common ingredient when it comes to baking because, like unsweetened cocoa powder, it imparts a deep, intense cocoa flavor to cakes, cookies and other treats.
