I like their catalog just for the recipes.
I love their portobello tacos.

I like it because of the recipes and it's alphabetical...I just have to know what I am looking for and it's right there.

I went to the store in Oak Park, Il., when I was visiting my brother and sister-in-law about 8 years ago. They were at work and DH had gone home the day before, so I got to check it out on my own. Had a great time and have ordered from the catalog ever since. Love the stuff.

I need an excuse to go to Richmond now lol

The only sauce recipe I've seen it in is Mom-I-L's. I don't know why it's there but I've never questioned it - her version is drool-worthy. I mean, when your own Mom things your MIL's sauce is better you KNOW you have a good thing!

Don't be too envious since it was a 60 mile drive one way. Then again when you live in the swamp you probably have to paddle 60 miles just to get to your car. If you like to cook and find different things it's well worth the field trip.

Thankfully, we only have Penzey's store access when we visit my brother or BIL. Otherwise, I'd need to build an addition on the house....

I tend to, umm, overdo it, and of course never bring a list of what we actually need.

I have a lazy susan in one cabinet, so they go round and round. And another cabinet with shelves that starts with "J" for jam them in....
