Food Products I'm Loving Lately

Friday, March 8, 2013

I thought it would be fun to share some products that are my favorite at the moment.  I'll write this post once a month to share new items that I discover and become obsessed with... because I loove finding new food items, especially in stores like Whole Foods and Trader Joes.  Unfortunately, there are none of those up here in Plattsburgh.. just good ol' Price Chopper and Hannaford (my wallet is very fortunate).  But I make do and am always grateful for care packages from my mom ;) (**hint hint, MOM). 
First up--Trader Joe's Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk.  My favorite part about driving home from NJ (the only part that I actually like) is stopping at Trader Joes in Paramus.  This is my first time trying this product and I LOVE it.  I use it in my cereal and it is creamy, not sweet, with just a hint of vanilla!
 I looove my pumpkin spice coffee from Green Mountain.  It is the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning.  I'm seriously bummed that the huge supply I stocked up on in the fall is almost gone.  I'll have to wait until September :(
 Yea Yea, I know..I'm a chef so why would I need jarred marinara???  Well, because this marinara is insanely good and ..c'mon I cook all day, can't a girl catch a break?
 This basting oil from Wegman's is my favorite to add to veggies before roasting.  It gives a nice herby, fresh flavor . I found 2 bottles of these in a cabinet at work today while cleaning and thought "JACKPOT!!"  then saw the expiration date was "10/08"..yuck!
 I put this truffle salt from Napa Valley on EVERYTHING!   I <3 truffle="">
 Another favorite from Trader Joe's: Spinach & kale greek yogurt dip.   I love the leaves of kale throughout the dip and the fresh veggies.  This dip is so good for you and is soo soo delicious!
 Egg  beaters isn't the most "natural" product in the world... I do love my whole organic eggs.. but these come already seasoned with peppers and onions already in it... CONVENIENT AND DELICIOUS!  Add some cheese on those and you've got yourself a tasty breakfast!
 I love these fire roasted crushed tomatoes that I get at the local co-op.  I'm usually not a fan of adding the fire roasted diced tomatoes to anything except something like chili, but these tomatoes make a great sauce (when I'm not using the Rao's jarred sauce ;) )
My favorite cheese of all time.. I can't pronounce it, but boy is it good....AND I can get it at the local grocery store in Plattsburgh!   My mom and I ate a whole wedge during cocktail hour one night... I added truffle honey to it and it was absolutely divine with a glass of malbec..mmm.  

Well that's it for now.. betcha wanna go to the food store now and get all of these things huh?
