Today I’m going to share with you not only a fantastic recipe for a lemony, Lingonberry Cheesecake topped with super tasty, lingonberry preserves but I’m going to share my recent road trip adventure to IKEA.

IKEA

Recently I had the pleasure of going to Ikea for the first time. I went with my son Bob and his beautiful wife Kim. We went to the IKEA in the Chicago area. Wow… What a place. Three floors of wall to wall stuff. It was a little overwhelming at first. There were so many things to look at but I managed to get through all three floors. After all, I had Lingonberry Cheesecake on my mind.

Food

On the 3rd floor there was a cafeteria-style restaurant. We decided to order and sat down to a delicious lunch. Bobby had Swedish meatballs and
Kim and I had the chicken tenders. We all shared a piece of apple cake and a piece of chocolate cake. The food was excellent and the chocolate cake was to die for. Bob and Kim had wanted to buy a cabinet, which they did, along with some other items but me, I just bought a jar of lingonberry preserves. I am a huge fan of jams, jelly, preserves, and fruit spreads. I always buy a “jar of jam” wherever I go.

Next Stop, Trader Joe’s

On our way home we stopped at Trader Joe’s in Milwaukee. I didn’t even know there was a Trader Joe’s in Milwaukee. Stopping at Trader Joe’s was like putting a cherry on top of the sundae. The first time I went to Trader Joe’s I was visiting my grandkids in Athens GA. It was love at first sight. I flew home from GA with a suitcase full of my Trader Joe’s favorites.

Trader Joe’s Favorites

Every time I go to Trader Joe’s, I always pick up my “favorites,” Trader Joe’s Brand Flakes, Kona Coffee Shortbread Cookies, Coffee and Pumpernickel Pretzels, (that are wonderful with Reuben Dip.) I also like to pick up a “New” item to try. Today I picked up: Trader Joe’s Carolina Gold BBQ sauce. According to the label: “It’s a golden-hued, mustard based sauce, that’s sweet, smoky with a hint of molasses and just the right blend of spices. We can’t wait to try this sauce on some boneless ribs. Check out: Ikea Trader Joe’s
