I’ll admit it. Cooking is not my forte.
I can make a mean breakfast, but for lunch and dinner I usually find myself cooking the same ol’ things. Ryan recently discovered Hello Fresh, a company that sends you great recipes, does the grocery shopping for you, and ships everything so you can make fun new meals at home. I was intrigued and now I’m hooked so naturally I had to do a blog post about it!!
The meals come packaged in an insulated box with ice packs, so your food stays nice and fresh. Everything is packaged very neatly so staying organized is easy. Grocery shopping is a chore (to me at least) and the thing I really love about this service is that they send you all those random ingredients that you may not use frequently or have in your kitchen. It’s also a great way to experiment with new foods and flavors, and maybe discover a new favorite dish!
On Friday night, Ryan and I made the Steak Tagliata with rosemary sweet potato wedges and watercress salad. It was delicious!! (Plus we had some steak left over for steak & eggs the next morning). An organized recipe card is included so you know exactly what ingredients to get if you want to make the dish again. It’s super easy to follow and includes nutritional and calorie info. Y’all- it actually made cooking fun! And coming from me, that says a lot 🙂
Saturday, we made the Pistachio-crusted Basa with Za’atar brussels sprouts & dilled couscous. If you read this post, you may be thinking- wait, she doesn’t like brussels sprouts?! Well, I might be a changed woman. We used a spice called Za’atar with salt, pepper and olive oil and they were actually pretty tasty. The fish was so flavorful and once again I was so impressed with this fancy little meal that we created.
I can’t wait to get our next box and step up my culinary game! A box with 3 meals for 2 people is $69 (including shipping) which comes out to about $11 per person which is great for the quality and variety of the food that you get. You can choose to keep the meals coming weekly or simply suspend them until you’re ready for the next one. If you want to try this fun & delicious service, use the code JBAS4K for $40 off your first box!! Trust me, you’ll keep coming back for more 🙂
Linking with Biana & Meghan.
