Let’s be real, y’all. Life can be really hectic and busy.
I’m 9 months pregnant. I am in two book clubs. My husband and I host a small group for our church. I have a wild toddler. Even though I’m a food blogger, there are nights where (gasp), dinner is simply sandwiches or cereal because I don’t have the bandwidth to plan and go to the grocery store.
Blue Apron has taken the guess work out of dinner and when I see that box on my porch, I think I hear angels singing! Each box includes fresh, refrigerated ingredients and recipe cards with easy-to-follow directions.
I love being able to still cook a fresh, delicious meal for my family but not have to put all the thought into planning it and buying the ingredients. Blue Apron is perfect for people who love to cook but don’t always have time to plan it all out.
Another thing I love is that all of their meals are ready, start to finish, in 40 minutes or less! Hallelujah, for reals you guys! I also love the fact that their ingredients are fresh and locally sourced and all their packaging is recyclable or reusable!
Our first week, we received Pork Chops stuffed with Fontina Cheese, Chicken al Mattone (Chicken under a brick), and Salmon with Lemon Labneh. It was super fun to make all three, because they were different than what I’d normally make and I actually cooked the chicken under a brick! Wuuuuuuut. It was a technique I’ve seen but never done myself and I will definitely be doing it again. The Salmon with Lemon Labneh was probably our favorite- it had dates, lemon, garlic, kale, greek yogurt and it was speaking my language!
Soooooo good, my mouth is still watering! I opted to go vegetarian for this week and we are loving all the creative, delicious options- we got Saag Paneer, Broccoli and Fontina Panini, and Spanish Style Potato and Chickpea Stew. You can choose your preferences on Blue Apron, skip a week if you’re going on vacation, or cancel and start back up again anytime! Love it!
