These were found at the Internet Archive Wayback Machine website and any links will bring you to their site. Nothing ever goes away on the internet. This is the proof.

The original site back in 2003 was all about the local stores, recipes, product usage… Quite fun and quite ambitions for an employee to run on his own time.

Towards the end of 2004, the calendar became too much to deal with and I just started posting the recipes. It’s all about ease, right?!?

Another consideration was the Trader Joe Corporate Office was not thrilled with employees running websites on their own.

Can’t say that I blame them! By late 2005 the site morphed into the site we have, today!
