Sometimes you need a night to could be that you had a rough day with your boss, maybe the kidlets are extra demanding, your boyfriend's super loco ex is in town or the dog just took a leak on the Christmas tree. Whatever the reason, throw on some PJs, grab a snugly blanket, shoo everyone away...then make yourself comfortable on the couch with a hot cup of tea, a nice book (or movie) and a bowl of Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Almonds with Sea Salt and Turbinado Sugar (or "turbo" sugar as Mr. S. likes to call it). Seriously, these little bite size treats are so amazing they could probably could bring about world peace...ok, maybe not quite but they do do wonders for PMS and are flippin' DELICIOUS. Salty, sweet, chocolaty- the combo of taste sensations will blow your tastebuds. I'm seriously addicted to them and $3.99 is a cheap price to pay to keep my sanity during the holidays.

  1. damn you, trader joe's for all your sinfully delicious concoctions! what did you think about blood, bones and butter? i read it earlier in the year and enjoyed it.

    It was ok, probably not one of my more favorite kitchen memoirs. I kept losing interest in the narrator/author.

    I loved Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential", Marco Pierre White's "Devil in the Kitchen" and Kathleen Flinn's "The Sharper the Knife, The Less You Cry," among others. Any recs?

  3. I want to read that book too! I just finished Medium Raw by Anthony Bourdain and really liked it (similar style to Kitchen Confidential).

    Have you read Bourdain's 1st book, a Cook's Tour?
