I love cooking. I think that is pretty well understood. It is fun for me to try out recipes and see which ones I like and work well. But sometimes I have no problem getting help from prepaired foods and since Trader Joe's sells products with mostly no preservatives I don't have a problem getting the help from them.

Niel recently purchased their Potatoes Au Gratin and it was ever so delicious. We also tried their Wisconsin mac and cheese but I wasn't too crazy about it. I think I'll stick to Kraft or the generic store brand. Or of course make both from scratch. Heh heh. I can't wait for the new Trader Joes to open near us. Niel thinks we'll pretty much do all of our grocery shopping there. I can see it now bags of Au Gratin, Nan, Chutney, pitas.......

What benefits are there from foods with no preservatives?

You consume less chemicals. It also depends on what kind of perservatives are used.

Here are better explanations:

Matty loves Au Gratin potatoes ... I should have him pick up a box next time he's in Cali. :)
