Have You Tried

On Sunday I spent some time outside at a park with Skylar and then ran a few errands

I was running a little low on fresh fruit and veggies so I stopped at the grocery store and Trader Joe’s and replenished a few items


And I noticed these at TJs.  Has anyone tried these?

Or these?

Or these?

All of those cookies have caught my eye a few times….

The last time I asked you all about something, i.e. the Skinny Fries, lots of you told me the fries weren’t really so wonderful, so I’m glad I asked!

So I figured I’d ask if anyone’s tried any of those cookies?

I have heard good reviews about the Cats Cookies already.

I should probably just make another batch of cookies that I have tried and that I can vouch for 100% such as

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies


Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Both kinds are gluten free which is really best for me if I am being honest with myself and gluten and how I feel after I eat it.

I’m less sensitive that I used to be, and can tolerate small amounts every now and then but I have a feeling any of those TJ’s cookies would do a number on me and I shouldn’t include them.  Darn.

And the White Chocolate Cookies & Cream Fudge doesn’t seem to bother me.  Which is a very good thing.

Thanks for letting me know you were tempted by it.  The foodie gods, approved it which made me happy.


1. Best thing you ate or did over weekend?

The white chocolate cookies & cream fudge was on the top of my food list.

I also got caught up on emails, housework, got things organized for the week, and felt sort of like I re-grouped a bit after coming off a really hectic and chaos-filled week last week.

Just getting organized going into a new week, if for nothing else, the weekend is considered a success in  my book if I can do that.

And of course spent time with the fam.

2.  What have you tried lately?  Any new products, foods, recipes, new workouts, playlists, blogs, TV shows, or anything else?  Verdict?

I have put a few new photography blogs in my Google Reader and have really been enjoying those.

I mentioned I just started watching Top Chef Just Desserts this season (and recorded some old reruns of Season 1 and they’re waiting for me on my DVR) and I love the challenge and competition and of course, the desserts!

And I have a Pinterest account and haven’t done much with it yet but I have a feeling that once I start, I will be hooked on it.

Have a great start to your week and if you’re just catching up on posts from the weekend here are mine:

  1. I’ve never tried any TJ’s cookies, but have heard the maple leaf cremes (vegan, but not gf) are amazing. We’ve given those in a gift basket too.

    Gosh, I just froze at your questions. I’ve had a lot of good food lately and done fun things, but now I’m drawing a blank! Creamy soup has been on the menu a bit.

  2. Your cookies I bet taste better than those cookies anyway. I can definitely attest to the flourless peanut butter cookies. Delish! And I have to try the chocolate version next. Hmm…I know what I’m baking today!

  3. Both the goodies and the wafers are super good, I was buying them a lot but i stopped because me and my hubby can eat the whole thing in like five minutes! I agree with another posters comments that the goodies aren’t what you would expect but I still thought they were great. And the wafers have the crunchy peanut buttery dark chocolate thing going on so who could say no to that?

  4. I tried the dark chocolate peanut butter wafer cookies and do NOT love them. I keep eating them though, but still not really loving them. I wouldn’t buy them again. The dark chocolate flavor is good, but I find the rest to be just a blah flavor.

  5. The dark chocolate peanut butter wafers are so good, they are dangerous – I can’t keep them in the house for more than a few hours! I keep finding them in my cart when I shop there, though, yikes! I also love the cat cookies.

    I just found your site recently and am loving all the recipes, can’t wait to start baking more once the weather cools down here in Nor Cal.

  6. Sweet new TJ’s finds, I might need to check those out.

    1. Had a nice family gathering after going through my grandma’s apartment with tons of grilled veggies.
    2. The berry Vega Whole Health Optimizer that I adore and really good rosemary french fries at a nice restaurant.

  7. I tried a new TV show lately (The X Factor) and I loved it!!
