I've had this cookbook a week now and have used it more than probably all my others combined. I love the one stop shopping aspect: all ingredients are at Trader Joes which is also affordable. The recipes are easy: more than a few of the ones I have made so far have made me say "why didn't I think of that" - the answer is because I am not Andrea Lynn and she deserves the credit. The recipes are delicious, period.
I remember being excited when my local Trader Joe's opened but I felt a little lost, thanks to this book not only have a rekindled my excitement for Trader Joe's but I now have the time to shop and prepare meals that are tasty and satisfying. I've even remembered to eat lunch this week and I didn't even have to wait until my daughter fell asleep to prepare it. Now if you'll excuse me I am off to make a Very Berry Smoothie.
PS I recommend the Pork Buns with Broccoli Slaw, The Avocado Toast, Parmesan and Bread Crumb-Crusted Tomatoes, Chicken Salad-stuffed Tomatoes and well pretty much everything else I made this week.
Lynn's instructions are super easy to follow, and I love that every recipe is short, usually 2-4 steps. Some are as simple as taking a prefab TJ's meal and juicing it up a bit with some extra ingredients, and some are much more "from scratch," but not at all intimidating. There's a great emphasis on one-pot cooking (easy cleanup!), and even a whole section for meals you can make using only a microwave. And for all that simplicity, every recipe in the book sounds amazing--kind of incredible since there's so many of them.
In short: great concept, very well executed!
