If you have a Houlihans near you, get over there!

Houlihans a is restaurant that serves American style cuisine, sounds boring right? To the contrary, Houlihans serves the best drinks I have ever had, from the liter sized Peach Long Island, to the Key Lime Martini, to the Sex and the City inspired drinks, Houlihans is the leader in original beverages.

Now on to the appetizers. The nachos with ground chicken and cheddar cheese sauce, thai wings, and the spinach and artichoke dip served with pittzeets are to die for. I look forward to trying the deep fried asparagus when I go back.

As far as entrees I haven't tried a lot of them but the French Dip is great and Houlihans has one of the best burgers I've ever had. I also recommend the Tuscan Salad.

June- Trader Joe's Suggestions

Goddess Dressing - Dressing Section
A delicious salad dressing with a slightly Asian flair. It includes hints of sesame and tahini. One of my all time Trader Joe's favorites.

Roasted Potatoes-Frozen Section
Absolutely scrumptious, any time of day! It is a bag of cut up potatoes with a packet of onions and green, red, and yellow peppers. They can be a side for dinner or serve as hash browns for breakfast and already have flavor without adding seasoning.

My favorite thing to do with the potatoes is top them with 2 over medium eggs and sprinkle cheddar cheese over the dish.

Hummus- Refrigerated Section
Trader Joe's has bevy of flavors of hummus. The two that I am most partial to are Edamame hummus and White Bean hummus. The texture and flavor of these two are slightly different than regular hummus. It is refreshing to a seasoned hummus conosier.

*Tip: Trader Joe's has inexpensive fresh and dried herbs.
