OIC! The old container was cardboard with a metalized label over the cardboard. It resembled a can except for the plastic twist open/close lid.

Trader Joe's own brand in a wedge or grated in a cup is cheaper per pound and so much better (not high end parm, but serviceable), I think that it is $5.99 per pound here, and you can actually taste it on your pasta!
TJ's Parmesan here too is $5.99/lb.

Yep, the old green "can" Parmesan. Now green plastic bottle Parmesan, and you gotta wonder about a cheese product that isn't refrigerated. At least TJ's refrigerates their Parmesan.

BTW I finished going through the rest of Pioneer Woman's cookbook last night and I want to try most of her recipes! There's a few here and there that are for dishes I'm not really interested in (and wasn't much impressed with her chili) but I bet there's 80% of her recipes that look good enough to try them.

I'm definitely going to buy her book, and looking forward to seeing her new cookbook that comes out this week.

Sounds like something older folks should not be making or eating

Picked Up my copy of PW's Food From My Frontier today. Have yet to crack it, I'll have to wait until the weekend or I will be up all night reading recipes.

Please review the book once you've given it the once over!

It could easily push me over the $25 free shipping limit and just buy both her books...

lol, greg. "you have to wonder about cheese that isn't refrigerated"?

isn't lack of refrigeration why cheese was invented?

Yes, hit the shelves yesterday. It sells for $30, got it on sale for $20...check around for prices. Not sure if you have a Hastings Books nearby. Just checked, Amazon has it for $17.35 Amazon.com: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier (9780061997181): Ree Drummond: Books
