Trader Joes: A Complete Salad – Caesar Style

There are many foods in my world that I can say that I love, and of those foods that I love, this is at the top, or very near the top of the list. I love salads of most any kind, and I have a special fondness for Caesar salads, of which I have had many types of the years. I have had those with the traditional fixings like this one from Trader Joe’s, to more exotic creations having eggs, strips of bacon, or a…

Baby Carrots, the Perfect Snack

When I think about a snack, if I don't have chips or things like that in the house, I often run to the refrigerator in pursuit of something to eat. Yes, you know how it is, you just have to have something, or you will blow away with the breeze the next time the A/C kicks on. Not really, at least not in my case. Snacking is a big problem for me, but I have found a small solution that works most times. Especially when…
