Trader Joe's Classic Colomba di Pasqua, reviewed

Every holiday has its own food traditions associated with it. Sometimes, these food traditions might be unique to your own family. Other times, these traditions are enjoyed by a much larger group of people. For instance, many people bake up batches of Hot Cross Buns around Easter.

Trader Joe's Cocoa Mascarpone Cheese

Mascarpone cheese is a smooth, buttery Italian cheese that has many great applications. It can be used to add richness to a pasta dish, and it can also be used to make a perfect tiramisu.

Trader Joe's Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Brownie Mix

It was more than six years ago when Trader Joe’s released its first gluten free brownie mix.

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Caramel Sauce, reviewed

Pumpkin spice has been a very popular flavor this holiday season. That familiar blend of cinnamon, cloves and other spices is easy to incorporate into all kinds of dishes. Pumpkin itself is a little bit more difficult to work with, since it contains so much moisture. Trader Joe’s has stocked their shelves generously with pumpkin spice items this season, but this Pumpkin Caramel Sauce really ... Read More »

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Rolls, reviewed

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Rolls with Pumpkin Spice Frosting

Pumpkin can be found just about everywhere in October, and that includes the refrigerated case at Trader Joe’s, where I recently spotted a new seasonal product: Pumpkin Rolls with Pumpkin Spice Icing. The rolls came in the same sort of cardboard tube that you find refrigerated biscuts and crescent rolls packaged in, but with the promise of pumpkin spice – which made them sound like ...

Every year for the past three years or so, Trader Joe’s has stocked its shelves with delicious Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels.
