cooking with trader joe's

A couple weeks ago my friend, Erin, mentioned she had checked out a cookbook from the library that used all the ingredients you find at Trader Joe's. Fabulous! I thought. I love Trader Joe's but never really can figure out how to make an entire meal out of the things I find on the shelves. I love their frozen steal cut oatmeal and the frozen jasmine or brown rice. They also have these mini sized pita pockets that works out so very adorably for my kids' lunches. But dinner??? The idea of making a dinner for five out of Trader Joe's products boggles my mind. In fact, I only shop at Trader Joe's when my oatmeal stash has ran low because I find I only come home with random frozen items and chocolate covered orange sticks. Delish!!

Today, I remembered I wanted to 'google' this cookbook and I'm glad I did. Titled, Cooking with all things Trader Joe's. They also have a blog loaded with great recipes and tips. I can't wait to get this cookbook in my hands!!
