This tortilla crusted tilapia from Costco has become one of our quick, go-to meals when we can't figure out what to eat. We cook it using the conventional oven instructions. The instructions say to cook them at 425 degrees F for 10-13 minutes, but we usually cook it for 14 or 15 minutes so the crust is crispy and the fish never gets mushy. One thing that makes this different than other frozen breaded/crusted fishes I've had is that only one side is crusted. It makes it easier to cook because there's no flipping midway.

The tilapia comes out flaky on the inside and crunchy on the outside. It has a nice and savory, well-seasoned Mexican food taste to it, and it has a little bit of spice, as well. Sometimes I wrap one in a soft flour tortilla and eat it as a fish taco -- and it tastes great that way, too. I really enjoy the taste of these, and I'm reminded how delicious they are every time I have one!

Bag of La Boulangère Hazelnut Chocolate Filled Crêpes from Costco
La Boulangère Hazelnut Chocolate Filled Crêpe from Costco

It isn't often when we see crepes at Costco -- I haven't seen their Belgian Boys or La Creperie crepes in a long time now -- so when I saw these on-the-go chocolate filled crepes at Costco this past week (in the nuts/peanut butter aisle), I decided to try them out.

The bag came with 15 individually wrapped crepes, and the first thing I noticed when I tried one was that the crepe/"pancake" part was a little dry. However, the added hazelnut chocolate filling made that dryness OK. A random thing I noticed was that on each package, it reads "This Product has been frozen... never refreeze after thawig". (yes, thawig... or maybe "thawi9")

Anyway, the filling was on the sweet side and tasted similar to Nutella. I liked the sweet chocolate filling - it went well with the crepe. One crepe wasn't very filling, but it still makes a good, quick snack or dessert that you don't have to warm up or prepare yourself.

Looking for an easy dinner solution, my boyfriend and I decided to try the Five-Spice Duck Leg Confit by Cuisine Solutions from Costco. We cooked it just by following the baking/oven instructions on the back of the box: Bake at 375 degrees F in an oven-safe dish on the middle rack for 5 minutes covered in foil, remove foil, and bake 7-8 more minutes until golden brown (although ours came out more dark brown than golden brown...).

The duck legs had a nice, savory taste and were very tender, however, parts of the duck leg were a little fatty. And although it has five spices (or six, if you include black pepper -- for some reason they don't include it as a spice on the front of the box), it didn't taste like it was super seasoned.

While it was good, I don't think it was worth the price of $10.99 per pound (our package of three duck legs came out to be $18.57). One duck leg wasn't very filling, and three duck legs shared between my boyfriend and I was barely a meal.
