    I'm guessing they'll be at multiple outlets of Garden Fresh, but the one I shop at is in Buffalo Grove.
    Garden Fresh Market
    770 S Buffalo Grove Rd
    Buffalo Grove, IL 60089

    Wow, I did not know there still a Garden Fresh. I do not leave my area much <grin.>
    But I do miss certain items since the Highland Park store closed. Chief among them was the sauerkraut in a barrel.
    Going to take a road trip. Thanks Cathy!


    Depending on where you are, you might find that the Vernon Hills Garden Fresh is also accessible. Don't know if they have the pickled cherry tomatoes, but the Vernon Hills store is even bigger than the BG store.

    I will make a note of that, thank you.
    I really miss the variety of kosher items GF used to carry in HP.
    Thank you again!

    Garden Fresh is actually in Mundelein rather than Vernon Hills.

    Sorry. Not sure where the borders are "up north."

    Not exactly a discovery because I've enjoyed Kerrygold products for years but someone recently gave me (I know, don't ask) a half-pound container of their Naturally Softer butter and oh my, it's delicious on toast . . .

    I typically use their unsalted butter but this stuff (lightly salted) is so good, I might start keeping it on-hand in addition to the unsalted. Wow!

    The new Jewel-Osco grocery store in Hyde Park at Cottage Grove and 60th street offers ramen made to order, along with stir-fry and noodle bowls. I've tried the ramen on three separate visits and have been pleasantly surprised by the quality. You get a choice of tonkatsu, miso, or spicy miso broth. You then select a protein (beef, chicken, pork loin, and tofu), along with 6 toppings (i.e., corn, soft-boiled egg, bamboo, nori, cilantro, green onions, broccoli, bokchoy). Everything is made on the spot to order and nicely packaged. I've tried both the tonkatsu and spicy miso accompanied by pork. Noodles have a nice chew and have not been over-cooked. I spent about $12 which I felt was fair given the quality. This has become my go to spot on Hyde Park during my lunch breaks when i'm craving ramen.

    Not so much a "must try" as a "good news if you need it" -- today at Aldi picked up a box of "Cauliflower Crackers." They're actually made with cauliflower flour -- among other things -- but are gluten free and pretty tasty. Interestingly, you can taste the cauliflower, even over the cheese in the version I bought. Very crunchy, though with a different crunch than a cracker made with wheat flour. But if you need to be gluten free, these might be a life saver -- and yet are tasty enough to not chase away your gluten-eating friends.

    Louisa's Four-Cheese Toasted Ravioli, found among the frozen foods at Marianos in Vernon Hills. A few minutes in a toaster oven and the cheese inside gets nicely melted. Seasoned crumb crust. Dipped in marinara sauce, a delightful appetizer. So St. Louis; so Highwood. Brings back memories of my dad's favorite place in Highwood, My Favorite Inn.

    p.s., I see the company is in St. Louis.
