My Favorite 5: Great Oils from Trader Joe’s

by | May 12, 2016 | My Favorite Five, Series

A few weeks ago I started a new series called My Favorite 5.  Today I want to share 5 Oils from Trader Joe’s.  When Trader Joe’s opened near me a few years ago, I didn’t get all the hype.  I’d never been to one and the things others were saying were so great, we couldn’t eat due to our gluten and nut allergies.  Well, I’m a huge fan now and there are so many great things I keep in my pantry from there.  I’ll share those in future posts.

Oils from Trader Joe's

Olive Oil with Lemon Juice:  This lemon flavored oil is great as a salad dressing with just salt and pepper.  I also toss Brussels Sprouts or Asparagus in it before roasting.  An easy and tasty side dish.

Black Truffle Oil:  This is great on vegetables or french fries!  I also used it to sauté chicken.  Great flavor.

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil:  A staple in my kitchen for everything from cooking to salad dressings.

Thyme Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette:  Yes, technically not an oil but is so good.  I use for a dressing, cooking and dip.

Garlic Olive Oil:  A very tasty oil with perfect garlic flavor.  Great for a dressing with only salt and pepper or cooking as well.

I keep these oils on my counter at the ready on this great marble tray with my Kosher salt in an olive wood keeper.

Happy cooking!

Color Crush: Coral

Color Crush: Coral

Lately, I’ve found myself having a color crush on coral! It is such a flattering color on all skin tones. I love that coral comes in so many shades! It can lean more pink, orange or red depending upon the fabric. You can shop all of my coral picks in my boutique!
