Cooking and Entertaining: Blue Apron

Ingredients in the insulated box

Our very hip friends, Thom and Firas, turned us on to Blue Apron (click here for more information), and we love it!  Blue Apron is an unprepared meal delivery service that sends (in an insulated box) recipes, along with the premeasured ingredients needed to prepare tasty, healthful dinners.  Aside from olive oil, salt and pepper, all ingredients needed are included, and I’ve been able to prepare most of the meals in less than 30 minutes. 

Portions are generous, and we’ve had leftovers every night.  The meals range from exotic (Filipino-Style Beef Picadillo-absolutely delicious) to tried-and-true favorites (Oven-Fried Chicken-also very good).  A friend and I were discussing Blue Apron, and she pointed out a great thing about this service-You won’t have to buy a large portions of ingredients (coconut vinegar, kasha, soy sauce, etc.) of which you’ll use only a small portion.

The thing about Blue Apron that amazes me is that the meals are relatively inexpensive-less than $10 per person per meal.  If you enjoy cooking and eating good food, but don’t want to shop for groceries and spend as much time measuring ingredients, Blue Apron is right for you!

FYI: I don’t receive compensation or goods for the items I promote-they’re simply things I like
