I am a frequent shopper of Trader Joe's; and this gem of a cooking book has enticed me to explore deep into the crevasses of my "local Joe". Not only have the recipes encouraged me to try more TJ's products, Cherie Mercer Twohy has inspired me to try new flavors and combination's of foods with her wisdom from her "years" of shopping at Trader Joe's and as a professionally trained chef.

You will want to read this cook book from cover to cover. The introduction is FILLED with how to get the best from your Trader Joe's, and most of the recipes include tips and/or a personal comment and sometimes a bit of humor, "Dental floss works great for cutting the goat cheese--just make sure to use the plain version, not the minty-fresh."

If you shop at Trader Joe's, you are probably concerned with the quality of food you eat. With this book you get the quality of TJ's products included in recipes that will put smiles on the faces of your family and friends and build your confidence as a cook. Oh! And most of the recipes, from starters to entrée's and dessert, can be prepared and served in 45 minutes or less.

Cherie has also included recipes that are vegetarian and gluten free. I especially appreciate the Hoardables and Pantry Staples List at the end of the book, because I was one of the victims of TJ's amazing frozen Pie Crust becoming a seasonal item. Take my word, you won't be disappointed.

I have great affection for Trader Joe's (TJ's) grocery stores but unfortunately there are none in Colorado. Trips for business and pleasure usually include a stop at any local shops so my pantry can be restocked. Knowing my appreciation of TJ's wonderful products this book was a well thought out gift that I received this past Christmas.

The author deserves recognition for including over 150 recipes when the trend of cookbooks I've recently looked at is around 60 to 70. Granted, some of the recipes are quite brief - like Cherry Crostini with Pecorino Romano which only has four ingredients - one of which is a loaf of bread -- but most have a range of complexity from easy to somewhat advanced.

Recipes I've tested include Chile Crab Chowder, Roasted Mushroom Polenta Stacks, Turkey with Green Chile Sauce and Roasted Asparagus with Hazelnuts and Clementines. Without fail, the results were delicious and all are dishes I will definitely prepare again. The author is clearly quite accomplished. She succeeds at taking a basic idea and adding a unique slant taking the dish to a new level. Other reviewers spoke of taking a cooking class from her, and given what I've tested from her cookbook, I'd welcome the opportunity.

Most of the recipes do not require an exact match of a TJ's product in order to prepare the dish, but some do, or at least will require some manipulation of several products to reach an acceptable substitute -- for example the Roasted Red Pepper and Artichoke Tapenade or Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar.

The structure of the book is clear and logical -The inclusion of the amount of time required to prepare the recipe is very helpful and often left out of cookbooks. There is no nutritional information given, but that is usually the case.

I love Trader Joe's and I thought I would love this cookbook too. I tried quite a few recipes and didn't find anything I would cook again. No one in my family cared for them. For example, I love sweet potatoes and I love the Trader Joe's peach salsa, so I thought the recipe using those two ingredients would be great. It wasn't. The language could also be better adapted to home cooks - one recipe told me to use "chiffonaded basil." Maybe other people know what that is, but despite the fact that I cook a lot, I don't talk "chef" so I had to google that! A lot of the recipes use the same products over and over throughout, so if TJ's is out of stock that day or has discontinued something, you're out of luck. There were many recipes that I could not make for that reason.

In using the recipes, I found that they were difficult to read because there is a busy beige pattern printed behind every ingredient list of every recipe. It's a shame when readability is traded off for design - the book becomes really hard to use. There is also a lot of empty space throughout which would have been perfect for adding photos because there is only a handful of photos in the book as another reviewer pointed out.

It would have been great to see a little more adventure in exploring more of the great items TJ's carries rather than repeating the same ones throughout. Obviously the author has favorite products, but the great thing about TJ's is the huge diversity of products. I found myself wondering why 8 or 10 recipes use the same Corn and Chile Salsa over and over when TJ's has so many other great salsas or corn products. Or how the puff pastry and pie crust (both very high fat/calorie items - not for everyday eating) appear over and over.

Trader Joes is one of my favorite grocery stores; I love that it has lots of healthy and organic products at affordable prices. This cookbook is awesome as all the ingredients can be found at Trader Joes. Our family has really enjoyed eating the foods I have made with this cookbook. I really like that it has recipes from so many different areas in the world so our family doesn't get bored. Before this cookbook we had never eaten African food. And I love that the recipes don't require pages and pages of ingredients or instructions. Great food that I don't have to spend hours preparing = happy mama!

The chapters include French recipes, Italian, Greek, Eastern European, African, Middle East, India, Asian, Island Flavors, Latin, and All-American. Some of our favorite recipes include: tarte flambee (French), provencal chicken (French), lightening quick almond cake (French), leftover pasta frittata (bella italia), htipiti (it's a dip - greek), yogurt-slathered grilled lamb (this is one of our favorites - greek), Bavarian-style mushrooms (eastern european), apricot linzer bars, (eastern eurpean), spicy coconut rice (African), palaver chicken (African), and muhammara (a yummy red pepper walnet spread - middle east). Every recipe we have tried has been delicious.

Each recipe has a short introduction/explanation, has an ingredient list (duh!) and easy to follow instructions, and includes the serving size, prep time, and cooking time. The book is bright colored, contains some pictures of the recipes, and has a glossy finish so it doesn't get dirty as easily.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for free to facilitate my review. This did not affect my opinions. All opinions are 100% mine and my immediate family member's.
