Thank you for starting an updated version of this thread - I have already tried a couple of the recommendations out and can't wait to try more! Could you provide a link on the 2013 version to this new one? I think some people from the old version may not be aware that a new one has begun. TIA!!
1: Salsa Autentica. My favorite storebought salsa (around here in New England, anyway), and a steal for the price.
2: Almond Croissants. I can't believe I never even considered these until reading about them on CH.
3: Kouign Amann
4: Cheddar cheese - the specifics vary, but at any given time there's at least one fantastic cheddar at a better price than I can get elsewhere
5: Frozen haricots verts - I don't know what it is about Trader Joe's, but some of their frozen vegetables are so much better than I can get elsewhere, which is a godsend in a climate with such a short growing season.
the Kouign Amann is ridiculous. It is my friend's favorite too. I have two pumpkin croissants stashed in my freezer and am going to grab more almond and chocolate croissants soon. So all the rise and bake stuff. Haven't tried the plain croissants but I will get around to it.
Puff pastry, pie crust, wide egg noodles and the decaf peppermint tea that is seasonal.
