Happy National Cheesecake Day!

30 Jul

Celebration suggestion: Buy Trader Joe’s New York-Style Cheesecake. Grab three forks and a couple of friends, and dig in.

Ed. note: I learned this through years of experience. It was hard, but I managed somehow. All for your benefit, dear readers.

You’re welcome.

A little cheesecake is the right thing to do

Over-the-top, creamy sweet goodness

Take Trader Joe’s little box of mushroom soup …

Trader Joe’s little box of mushroom soup

It’s great on its own. Creamy and mushroomy. But there’s also room for a cook’s embellishment.

I added … wait for it … mushrooms. A whole package of fresh halved buttons. I also included some fresh squeezed lime juice and topped my bowl with a dollop of Olive Tapenade.

Box of candy-coated licorice

5 Sep

A rectangular box. Festive ’50’s-style design. Small bits of sugary goodness inside. All signs point to finding this item at the movie theater concession stand. It’s cute and tasty – what more does one want or need in a candy?!

Ready for the movie to start: Candy-coated licorice

The coating is a little thick, but it’s not too sweet. And the candy contains a potent shot of licorice.

Stop by and pick one up on your way to the movies.

Bonus: This would make a good shaker for an impromptu jam session.

Thanks, TJ’s.
