Welcome to our latest edition of TDF Weekly. We had a wonderful week celebrating the 4th of July with our family and hope you did too!

Our All American 4th of July spread!


  • Moving! Food Nanny Jr. is getting ready to move in to Food Nanny Sr. amazing home! We are so excited about this, but moving can be so exhausting. To help, I have been decluttering like crazy. I have cleaned out closets, drawers, you name it! This way, my life will be so much easier come end of this month. If you don't want it now, you want want it in your new home!
  • Mission Call: In case you missed it, Food Nanny Sr. and Mr. Food Nanny are heading on another mission! They will be heading to Brussels, Belgium September 15th! This is why Lizi is moving in.
  • France trip! You know the trip we have been talking about all year? It is finally just around the corner and we could not be more excited. Our adventure starts next week!


  • Family time: With our long holiday weekend, we had so much time together! Kids are none stop and summer can be exhausting. But when we take time to slow down and just enjoy time together, there is nothing better.
  • Copper! You know our love for copper runs deep. We have been loving our jam pots, and just got several more incredible items. These are amazing, especially for the price. It is something you will have for generations!
  1. Copper Jam pot- 3 liter and thick walled. This one we have shown you a couple times and can't get enough of it!
  2. 3 piece set: If you are going to buy just one thing today, make it be this! Who doesn't want a 3 piece copper set? The price of these guys may go up after the summer, so don't wait!
  3. Copper Saucepan: This is ideal for caramel. It is one of their most popular items and we aren't surprised one bit.
  4. Copper kimmer with Cast iron handle and Copper Ladle. Both of these items are super practical in the kitchen and make the perfect pair to all other copper products.
  5. Copper Beating Bowl: perfect for beating eggs, or anything really.
  6. Tinned Copper Stock Pot: This is absolutely beautiful! Just looking at it makes us so happy! If you decide to go with this one, remember that tin can be pretty sensitive. So you don't want to use too high of a temperature with it. Check out this article for proper use.

Can you tell we love copper? It has become one of our favorite things, and we hope you add some to your kitchen. We want you to feel the same joy it has brought us! It really is kitchen art and we can't get enough.

Have a wonderful week Fannies! xoxo

The Food Nanny Mothers Day Gift Guide

The Food Nanny Mothers Day Gift Guide

Can you believe Mother Day is THIS Sunday? It has completely snuck up on us. We thought it would be fun to share with you some of our favorite things for last minute gift ideas.

Some of these items will keep even the most difficult person happy this week! Or if you are like us, you need some ideas to send your husband. It can be hard thinking of things for yourself, so look no further!

Whatever your price point is, this list is for you. And if Mothers Day comes and goes, treat yourself to a little something. Being a mom is the most challenging and rewarding part of what we do. We love cooking, but our family is what makes it all worth it.

Motherhood sometimes get a bad wrap. You get no sleep. Kids are messy and loud. It is far from a glamorous job. You work all day to wake up and repeat the same tasks in the morning. Being a mom us hard, both emotionally and physically. But is there anything more rewarding than teaching and loving children?

Whether you are a loving aunt or friend to children, have young children at home, or have moved on to the grandma phase of life, happy Mothers Day! Aren't we all mothers in many ways? Today is a day to honor those who raised us and those who have helped along the way. It is a wonderful excuse to celebrate women and the wonderful work we are doing!

When we walk into the door of Trader Joe’s right away we love to look at the beautiful flowers! Their prices are always fabulous for flowers! We love the seasonal selections and then our staples that seem to always speeak to us which are the Hydgrangea and Israeli Ruscus and Tulips !! When its cold and cloudy outside flowers seem to brighten our every day. Fresh, or dried arrangements seems to bring a sense of peace into the home. Make sure to grab a basil plant to have on hand for cooking!!! Place the plant into a cute canning jar and add water to keep it fresh. Next stop Produce- love their produce!!

Not to mention we use them in cooking and baking all day long! Their fruit is always a fabulous price!! Then we love to grab some tomatoes on the vine or grape tomatoes. We have realized the smaller the tomato the better! They are the most consistent in flavor and freshness!! Then we stop at the Meat Deparment- Honestly we love their meat. Love the quality and you can tell the difference! If you are on a tight budget or cooking for a large family, we wouldn’t suggest that its the best place to purchase meat! Costco is more affordable. Danish Kringle- We saw it every time we came to Trader Joe’s and never bought it because we didn’t know what it was! Now when we go into the store we have others asking us what it is and why we are buying it??!! HAHA!! Because it’s seriously yummy!! They constantly change the flavors. We love the almond, pecan and raspberry. These Kringle remind us of a cheese danish! You can eat it cold or you can heat it up in the oven either way.. we LOVE IT!!! You can even freeze it, they freeze really well! You can freeze for up to 2 months! Perfect for a breakfast or just a dessert! Give it a try !!! Pound Plus Milk Chocolate - We have seriously become famous for our Mexican Hot Chocolate! We have followers that are saying they have never liked hot chocolate until now!! We get comments that they cant stop making it!! There was even a time that a Trader Joe’s in Utah was completely sold out of it because of us!! It is that amazing and you can get the recipe here !!! Your family will love it and its a must for these winter months!!!! Apple Cider - We have tried every homemade version and this is the best! We love to heat it up with a couple of cinnamon sticks. After it’s warm, put a dollop of homemade whip cream! It is seriously good! Canned Tomatoes- These are a serious must when you come to Trader Joe’s Stock up! They are the best prices out there and the quailty and taste is AMAZING!! You have to get the Tomato Sauce, San Marzano Tomatoes and Tomato Paste. The diced tomato’s are great too !! Their Mariana is super good and so inexpensive! We love to get the marinara for our Mostociolli and also for one of our Tomaot Soup recipes ! Cheese Deparment- This is where our HEART is!! We seriously feel like we relate with the French so well about their love for cheese! Eating fresh cheese is a huge part of our every day diet!! You won’t find a better price or quailty then at Trader Joe’s! These are the staples that we constantly have on hand! The fresh Mozzarella , Manchego, Gruyere, Emmentaler (especially for our fondue) , Chevre Honey Goat Log, Parmesean Reggiano , Comte, Unexpected Cheddar, Gouda, Creamy Toscano. These are the ones that we seriously cannot get enough of ! Crackers- Love their crackers espeically to go with the cheeses! We love to eat this for lunch or if your ever doing charcuterie board! Their crackers are a must. We love the Fig and Olive Crisps and Rasin Rosemary Crisps! The BEST! California Estate Olive Oil- I love this olive oil because it has a fresh peppery taste! I love that its American Grown in California and its a great price! Makeup Wipes- This is a random product that we love! We have tried many different makeup wipes and they are the perfect wetness and perfect size! They really get off the makeup well for a great deal! Wine- We also buy most of the wine that we cook with at Trader Joe’s. Here in Utah the wine is not available. Purchase some if you are out of state, the wine stores forever! When we post something that we really love.. your getting our stamp of approval!!! We will always add to this list whenever we find other must haves, that we cant live without from Trader Joe’s!!
