I lived in Los Angeles for several years, and during that time I came to know Trader Joe’s, not just as a fun, friendly, frugal food store, but as a special destination. It was and is my happy place.

In the last few years, TJ s opened not just one, but two, long-awaited locations in the Kansas City metro. The town went Trader Joe’s Crazy! And now my happy place has come to me.

The blog has taken shape as the place to report on those products we love at Trader Joe’s. No complaints, no gripes, no grumbles (well, seldom, if ever). Just pure, unadulterated adoration for some of the best food items we’ve found in any grocery-like establishment.

From time to time, TILATJ’s has guest contributors. We all have different food preferences – i.e. we don’t necessarily like the same food or have the same eating habits, which is a really good thing! This way, just because I don’t eat beef, beef-eating readers don’t miss out on a TJ beefy must-have.

I invite anyone to share their TJ faves in a guest post. Please send me an email to get started at traderjoeskc@gmail dot com.

Also, please follow us on Twitter: @traderjoeskc.

Thanks so much for your interest and support!

Take care,

    Hello Judy! I am writing to tell you that your gravatar is not active. I mean there is no link in the photo that appears when you comment. Make sure to add the link of your blog to your gravatar. I checked here http://el.gravatar.com/procurrent and there is no link. You should update it, it’s a pity people not be able to get to your blog….

    Do you make a low sodium Gyoza dipping sauce ?

      Hi, Wanda! I know that Trader Joe’s sells a Gyoza dipping sauce – I’m not sure if they have one that’s low sodium. I make my own dipping sauce, though. It’s simple – just soy sauce (can be low sodium) and fresh lime juice. I hope this helps! Happy eating!
