About Costcuisine

Costcuisine is a website and online community dedicated to Costco-loving foodies like me! Costcuisine isn’t associated with Costco in any way though. Costcuisine started off as a hobby for me. I didn’t know how many people would read my posts, but I realized pretty quickly that I’m not the only person who loves both food and shopping at Costco!

I’m happy that I can help other Costco fans find the best stuff in their local warehouses. I also try to provide useful information, like cooking instructions for products (in case you threw out your package by accident like I have countless times!) and nutrition information. For me, the best part of Costcuisine is that I’ve met a ton of other Costco fans and I get to interact with them through this website and my various social media accounts.

Please check out the FAQ page for more information about Costcuisine, the Contact Costcuisine page if you’d like to get in touch with me and the Support Costcuisine page if you’d like to donate to Costcuisine or find a list of all of the places where you can follow me!

  1. Re: Costco Maple Oatmeal Cookies

    Reading the recipe there is an entry that says 1/2 cup chopped . . . Is this a typo following 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or is there something else to add? I didn’t see anything in the directions to indicate there was another ingredient.

    Thank you

  2. Natalie, hi. I enjoyed your post. As a diabetic I have to know carb counts/repeatable unit of measure. Do you by any chance have a weight for the 1/12 portion of changeable container size for https://www.costcuisine.com/post/costco-kirkland-quinoa-salad-review# please? I have a container full in my fridge and was really stressed last night unable to find reliable info anywhere.

  3. I bought a Costco ham and put it in the freezer since it was too early for Christmas. Now should I take it out and defrost before reheating? How many days should it be left out to be defrosted or can I cook frozen?



  4. Hello Natalie …
    I am so glad that I discovered your website and your reviews which I find very useful and which make my trips to the nearest Costco ( London, Ontario ) a nice experience gastronomically speaking. I love their slab cakes, especially the icing. Is it possible to buy the icing in small tubs ? I asked someone in the bakery section and they could not answer my question. Where can I buy the icing that they use which is so rich and sweet ?

    Thanks …

  5. Do you know if the Kirkland Signature Egg Nog Wine Cocktail is safe to drink for persons with nut allergies or Celiac Disease?

  6. Hi Natalie,
    Since I bought this Isabelle Pineapple Cake in Burnaby Costco two or 3 months ago I’m addicted to it as it’s soooo good!
    It’s always on my list when shopping at Costco once a month.

    • Hi Nef! You’d have to contact your local Costco, you can try using the item number on the post for them to search it.

  7. I can no longer find Little Northern Bakehouse at the store where I was buying it. Does Costco in Minneapolis carry it or any store in the area? Thanks!

  8. How can I purchase the Kirkland Beef Chili at this time. The Winchester, Va location does not have.
    Thanks in advance;

    • Hi Ed! Sometimes Costco discontinues products seasonally. Hopefully they bring it back to your store in fall/winter!

  9. I am very pleased that there is someone that likes to help others with this kind of information. I’m a male and I hate to go shopping (for food, clothing, ETC) I have MS and some of the medicine I have to take and when I take it I have a reaction to it so my Dr suggested I take low mg aspirin and a spoonful of peanut butter, well I’ve tried a few peanut butters now and the kirkland brand creamy peanutbutter is by far my favorite. I’ve tried others to save a couple of dollar’s but I have to go back to the kirkland brand I love the taste and now I’m addicted. One of my favorite snacks is wheat toast with peanutbutter and honey and this is the only peanutbutter I like now (I hope kirkland doesn’t stop making it!)
