Before I get to the next giveaway, it’s time to announce the CAKE AND FROSTING FOR A YEAR WINNER:

Congrats to Rachelle! Please email me ASAP, by Monday night before midnight with your address.


This next giveaway is also so much fun! It is no secret that I am a Trader Joe’s Fanatic. I LOVE it and could shop there everyday and be so happy. 2 Picky Palate readers will win this brand new Cooking With All Things Trader Joe’s Cookbook! Here’s a little information about the book….


Mortal beings can now create the stuff of chefs, in minutes, using ingredients all from Trader Joe’s. Use Trader Joe’s as your “prep kitchen” to make delicious home-cooked meals in just minutes.

From quinoa to capers, Marsala to Masala, tofu to turkey, it’s all here. Each recipe features Trader Joe’s products, easy steps, and mouth-watering photos.

Here’s how to enter:

Leave a comment and tell us what your favorite Trader Joe’s product is. If you do not have a Trader Joe’s in your area, I feel very sad for you, so you can just tell us your favorite quick and easy to make dinner using convenient foods from the grocery store. It’s a hard choice, but my favorite Trader Joe’s product is the frozen brown rice that can be microwaved in 3 minutes and then of course the sesame ginger almonds, mmm! Ok I LOVE it all!

Contest ends Monday morning at 9:00am PST. I’ll announce the winner shortly after. Good luck everyone!!!

    We LOVE their cornbread mix… it is sooo easy and so so good. But I also love General Tsao’s stir fry sauce for a super quick and easy meal and cherry dark chocolate chunk Soy Creamy which I lived on while nursing my son who was sensitive to dairy. YUM.

    favorite = trader joe’s has this amazing lobster ravioli…and this is coming from someone who usually doesn’t even like ravioli!

    Oh my, what don’t I love from Trader Joe’s??? If I have to pick just 1 thing, I’ll go with their Tuscan Italian Salad Dressing…the best!

  4. Anne

    I love trader joes! They have the best frozen produce and I love buying nuts there. And sausage. And their honey whole wheat pretzels. Can you tell it’s my favorite? 🙂

    My favorite has to be the stuffed turkey breast that is stuff with cranberry/apple stuffing. I’ve made that with some of their small potatoes and some glazed carrots. It’s a great meal and I can create that feeling of having a Thanksgiving dinner anytime!

  6. Kelsey & David Barber

    I just moved to a city with a Trader Joe’s nearby so I will have to check it out! All sounds good to me!

    It’s so hard to choose just one favorite. I’m a HUGE Trader Joe’s fan. The frozen Penne Arrabbiata is a family favorite because it’s so fast and easy and you would never know that it was frozen. We also love the Pork Carnitas. I could go on and on…I would love the cookbook!

  9. Heather

    We usually love what is being sampled that day! 🙂 But otherwise I love the whole wheat pasta and their pesto is incredible!

  10. The Monkey Mama

    Hmmm… Trader Joe’s!
    I love the Joe-Joe’s… my boys love the “bird crackers” as they call them. But I really cannot get enough of the Honey Whole Wheat Pretzels!

  11. Chetta

    My favorite Trader Joe’s food is their Pretzel Slims.. it’s basically the only store I shop at so there are many close seconds : )

  12. Never thought I'd be a soccer mom!

    We don’t have a Trader Joe’s in my area but my new favorite thing to make my family is Bear Creek Broccoli and Cheese soup mix. I added frozen broccoli, extra cheese and some milk. It was quick, tasty and my kids loved it. It is Minnesota and soup is always a good thing!
