Fancy Brunch Bites

March 18, 2015 in Entertaining

In 1895, Guy Beringer put brunch on the map when he published “Brunch: A Plea” in the British periodical “Hunters Weekly.” In his overture to this breakfast-meets-lunch meal, the tone was set: “Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.” A century later, brunch is as liberating and invigorating as ever.  To gear up for Spring – high brunching season – we put our culinary whimsy to work, taking three Trader Joe’s tried-and-true – Polenta, Buttermilk Biscuits & Trader Potato Tots – and transforming them each into single-serving, “fancy” muffinized brunch bites.

Toasted Coconut Pancake Mix

October 20, 2014 in What's New

Toasted Coconut Pancake Mix is the kind of thing that people who are stranded on tropical islands fantasize about. Sure, castaways experience no shortage of coconuts—but it’s the “Mix” part that presents a problem. (Also, griddles are scarce.) But, let’s be honest… even the non-stranded mainlander pines for pancakes packed with toasty, coconut flavor from time to time. Consider this Mix your Toasted Coconut Pancake fix—wheth­er you’re stranded in the city, suburbia, or the South Pacific. When developing these Pancakes, we sampled an early version that was...
