Costco Recipes

Do I need more recipes? No but that does not keep me from finding and trying some. Recently at the local Costco in Overland Park, KS, I walked in the door and they handed me a FREE book "In the Kitchen- the Costco Way". The main focus is recipes using many Costco products (but you can use ingredients of course for other stores). There are all sorts of recipes from breakfast, appetizers, salads and soups, side dishes , entrees , desserts (of course!), beverages . There is even a nice Chef's choice sections of recipes from outstanding chefs using Costco products. Some of these chefs are no slouches themselves like : Martha Stewart (I never try any of her recipes NEVER), Sandra Lee and Paula Deen (there are some nice ones) , Jessica Seinfeld (Jerry's wife has some good ones) , Ellie Krieger (Food Network too and always has some healthy ones) and a few others I never heard. There are some real good and fabulous recipes that I will try. There also is a nice index. I don't know if they are still giving them away for free but when you go to Costco, check to see if they are still available. There does not seem to be a price. I most likely will try Orange Chicken, Thai fish, Grapefruit Feta Mint salad and there are others which look good. I already have hundreds I want to try. A few more won't hurt.

That sounds like a great cookbook, and really handy for people who have a Costco nearby and are members.

Here's a great one for Trader Joe's fans, a cookbook featuring Trader Joe's products! It's "Cooking With Trader Joe's." Great recipes featuring all kinds of TJ sauces and other great products. Want to start eating healthier? You'll find just what you're looking for -- and those TJ ingredients are so much healthier than other brands -- they're natural and preservative-free.
