I was a bit underwhelmed with this cookbook because I didn't find a lot of items that sounded appetizing. That's probably just my personal dislike of certain foods that permeated a lot of the recipes. Someone less picky would probably find this book a bounty. Especially given that it contains approximate 120 recipes -- so there are plenty of recipes from which to choose. The selection is varied too: soups, salads, appetizers, side dishes, desserts, drinks, light meals, and family meals.

Many of the recipes involve little more than opening packages, mixing ingredients, and heating portions in the microwave, stove top, or oven -- especially those found in the "Bachelor Quickies" section.

Even more convenient ... all of the ingredients can be purchased at one store. They name specific TJ products and quantities to purchase for each recipe, which is very handy.

As all good cook books do, it starts off by explaining measurements, conversions, cookware, utensils, and condiments used in the recipes. There's an explanation about the Trader Joe's market concept in the front and a list of TJ stores in the back. Plus, many recipes have little post-it notes on its photo page offering wine/beer suggestions.
