A Trader Joe’s influencer has released a cookbook using her favorite items bought inside the beloved grocer.

Kelsey Ann Lynch, who runs the Instagram account Trader Joe’s Food Reviews, which has more than 160,000 followers, released the book last month. Titled “Cooking Through Trader Joe’s,” the book highlights products Lynch loves from Trader Joe’s and how to use them to make appetizers, cocktails, main courses and desserts.

It’s noted the book is done independently by Lynch and is not affiliated with Trader Joe’s in any way. 

On Lynch’s Instagram account, she gives reviews good and bad based on how she feels about Trader Joe’s products. Each item gets a ranking on a scale of 1 to 10. A recent post on the Trader Joe’s Spicy Pumpkin Curry Simmer Sauce, for example, received an 8 out of 10 and Lynch wrote about its flavor profile and how well it paired with rice and Kobucha squash.

The book is available on Amazon.
