Wandering the aisles at Trader Joe's, busy moms Deana Gunn and WonaMiniati used to overhear fellow shoppers wondering aloud how to use various products they saw on the shelves: quinoa, for instance. Full of answers to those questions, their book Cooking with All Things Trader Joe's is a collection of exciting and exotic yet easy recipes, all of whose ingredients can be easily found at your neighborhood Trader Joe's store.
