Trader Joe’s Cookbook Series
Starting things off with a bang is a book that isn’t supported or endorsed by Trader Joe’s. In fact, it’s from an average Instagram Influencer who decided to make a book out of her collective thoughts of what to do with Trader Joe’s food items. It’s a collection of meal recipes, desserts, and drinks that fill a total of 17 various recipes and 6 drink recipes.
The author-Kelsey Lynch has turned her Instagram profile dedicated to Trader Joe’s Food Reviews into a paperback book. It’s also available as a Kindle file if you enjoy reading recipes on your smartphone screen. For the asking price, it’s not a terrible effort although the meals could be considered healthier.
