Trader Joe products you have tried

We blew through a whole jar of TJ's marinated mushrooms with garlic in two days (they're that good) so we've been buying jars of plain button mushrooms, draining them, and putting them in the TJ brine to continue the circle of life.

What a great idea, Dawg!

*adding TJ's Marinated Garlicky Mushrooms to my list*

I'm in a small town out in the middle of the Mojave Desert and can easily get it at both of our grocery stores. But if I had someone willing to send me $20 worth of Parmigiano Reggiano every month, I too might say I still haven't been able to find it.

Couldn't help it, I just had to check out Germantown TN. Beautiful small city with some lovely very large homes that would be bargain priced in California. Even I wore some nice clothes, went inside the city limits of Beverly Hills, and didn't catch affluenza.

Camembert Cheeese & Cranberry Sauce Fillo Bite

I followed the directions to the tee, but the cheese all melted out...

K-Girl, I never think to use cereal in a parfait like that. Why don't I ever remember??? Anyway, I bet it would be good sprinkled on top of Greek yohgurt for breakfast, too. I should remember that on our next trip to TJ's.

They used to have a wheel of Brie topped with a cranberry-nut mix, then wrapped in pastry crust. It was really good, but I haven't seen it for years. *sigh*

I layer my yogurt parfaits for eye appeal: granola, yogurt, fruit, repeat in small quantities to fill an Ice Cream Sundae or Parfait dish (I have a picture of this somewhere, I'll find it!!) ... the chocolate flavor granola is smashing with the TJ's full fat Vanilla yogurt and fresh, sliced Strawberries. This makes a insanely good dessert and you'd never know that it's good for you as well.

For breakfast, I take my cereal bowl filled with yogurt and then mix in copious amounts of granola (and maybe fruit, but not often). SUPER!

I'm a Fage kinda gal, with fresh fruit and sometimes nuts. Loved it with fresh cherries when they were in season. Now I'm on a nectarine or peeled peach kick. Once the summer fruits are done, I won't be having yogurt as often.
