I'm a gal who loves cooking. During the fall and winter months, I adore being in the kitchen. Once spring hits, though, it's almost as if my brain says, "Well, we're too busy now. See ya in the fall, stove." We do typically start getting busy in the spring, and then especially in the summer, but I've realized lately that I've been missing it. When I was contacted by Blue Apron to try out one of their boxes, I got pretty excited. They send you a box full of fresh ingredients and a step-by-step recipe alongside. I was a little nervous about food sitting on my porch while we were out the day it arrived, but the refrigerated box was sealed up tight and everything was still cold by the time I opened it.
(Side note: my garlic press is one of my very favorite kitchen tools. I cook with fresh garlic as much as possible and I used this gadget like nobody's business.)
As you can see from the photos above, everything from Blue Apron is laid out for you and the directions are very simple to follow. I was a little nervous about cooking with a few of the things like fresh lemongrass and ginger, but it was super simple. By the time I was done I was asking myself why I've never tried before!
Part of my family doesn't really eat meat, so I was curious to find out how the vegetarian options would taste. The food was delicious and gave me even more eagerness to get back in the kitchen. I think I'm ready to try more fresh ingredients I've never used before!! All in all, this was a really good experience for us. :)
What do you think? Do you like cooking? Do you think an all inclusive service like this is something you'd be interested in? I'm curious! xo.
