We can now spread the tasty Belgian Speculoos cookies on top of something else? O.M.G. Why have peanut butter when you could have cookie butter?

I had heard of the Cookie Butter from various bloggers who I follow. They raved about it and said that once you try it you're hooked. I had never even heard of it as there wasn't a Trader Joe's in my state. When one did open the first thing I bought was the Cookie Butter. I got home and opened it up and dipped a pretzel inside and IT CHANGED MY LIFE! This is so freaking good!! It's exactly what everyone says it is! I eat it on pretty much anything; pretzels, toast, apples, crackers, Nilla wafers, but my favorite is putting it on pumpkin spice waffles. Try it it will change everything. I love the smooth and chunky kind and love both! Seriously go out and buy some. ...read more

Enjoy the taste of peppermint tea without the caffeine causing you to stay up all night.

Herbal teas are right up there, next to water!

I love Trader Joe's products, but their teas are especially good. The flavors are strong and soothing. Peppermint is my daughter's favorite, and it's so tasty that she doesn't even add honey to it. Great for an upset tummy, too (steep longer to make it stronger).

Make sure not to over steep for a regular cup of tea or you'll end up with bitter tasting tea. It only needs about 5-10 minutes. ...read more

Sun ripened tomatoes, basil, extra virgin olive oil, and garlic make this marinara sauce a perfect addition to your pasta. Add some peppers, onions, mushrooms, and olives for a twist.

I think this sauce is delicious! I was nervous to try it, but I was pleasantly surprised. I did not need to "doctor it up". I looked up reviews on other Trader Joe's sauces before I purchased it and I'm glad I gave it a try. It is Vegan and Organic. It's not that expensive and you get a pretty big bottle compared to the other ones they sell. It lasted me 4 or 5 meals. I use it on ground turkey mixed with brown rice noodles and spinach. So yum and healthy! ...read more

These candied pecans are extra crunchy, lightly sweetened, and great by themselves or on top of a salad.

These are great for salads or just snacking. Perfect amount of spice. I know it's easy to make my own spiced pecans, but in a pinch these are wonderful and they class up a simple salad or butternut/acorn squash meal like none other. I always recommend these! ...read more

So delicious with pita or tortilla chips.

Vanna L.Vanna L. said...
This artichoke and jalapeno dip is so incredibly addicting! I first tried it when a sales associate at Trader Joe's offered me a sample, and I knew immediately that I had to purchase it! It has such a unique, tasty flavor, very creamy and just a hint of spice. It goes perfectly with pita or tortilla chips, but my favorite thing to eat it with are the blue corn chips that Trader Joe's carries! Definitely one of my favorite snacks. ...read more

Prepare this quiche in minutes. You'll love the flaky crust and how whipped the eggs are.

I just had this quiche this afternoon for a quick lunch. I was skeptical of a microwave quiche; I shouldn't have been. The crust stays flaky and the quiche is filling and delicious. There is still even a bit of snap left in the broccoli! ...read more

I became addicted to Starbucks vanilla sweet cream cold brew over the summer. It started getting a bit pricey, so I thought I'd try making it on my own. Are used to Trader Joe's cold brew and vanilla creamer. It was an exact dupe for the Starbucks drink. Now Trader Joe's cold brew is always in my refrigerator!!! ...read more

Serve a small family with this spinach and kale pie that has layers of phyllo pastry, a blend of spinach and kale, and feta and ricotta cheeses.

As a vegetarian, I love this pie. Even my 8 year old eats it! I know, shocker! Trader joe's is such a good place for their frozen products, they have so many things other places don't have. It's really tasty, has lots of greens. I eat it as my main meal, but would be a good side to meat, also! ...read more

These mushroom turnovers are bomb. They're stuffed with chopped mushrooms, sautéed onions, and a drool-worthy secret sauce.

LOVE these!! I get them just about every time I go to Trader Joe's. We eat them as a side with dinner or as a fun snack if we have friends over (or are just hanging out and need something to nosh on). They are absolutely delicious. There's a sauteed mushroom/onion/garlic/cream sauce concoction in the middle and the outside/crust is flaky and savory. I always bake them for a bit less time than suggested on the box because they really dry out if cooked too long. ...read more
