A New Way to Cook

I really love to cook but have found meal planning + grocery shopping + cooking to be too much for my busy schedule. I discovered Blue Apron a year ago and I love the concept. They take care of the meal planning and grocery shopping and you just have to do the food prep. The other thing I love is the recipes are new. So I feel like I get to be a little experimental when I cook. (If I had chosen the recipes we would be eating the same 5 meals I always make)…

Blue Apron + Oh Happy Day!

Even on busy weeks when we haven’t had time to go grocery shopping, we know that Blue Apron will help us make at least 3 homemade meals for our family. We’re on the family plan which is perfect for a family of 4. It’s delivered right to our doorstep in a refrigerated box so everything stays super fresh until we can get home. We usually get a mix of fish and vegetarian dishes, but you can choose your menu each week (and pick options that work best for your family.) This week we made Rigatoni Puttanesca. It was great, and the portions were huge. We even had enough for leftovers the next day.  I’m excited to try these Fresh Gnocchi & Chicken Tacos recipes soon! The recipes are easy to follow (they even have pictures!) so it’s easy to hand off to a spouse or babysitter if you need to take the night off.
If you’d like to try it out, Blue Apron is giving away 2 free meals to the first 50 people who visit their site. Just click here! Then let us know what you think!

    Wow, blue apron had really gotten its claws into every blogger out there. These photos are beautiful and Jordan’s cheery write up sounds good, but this is click bait – “the 2 free meals” equate to $19.98 off, which at $9.99 per person PER ENTREE is less than one meal free. Plus you still have to give them your information and buy at least 60 bucks worth of delivery. Cute advertising here, but reader beware. 😕

      Hi Diana! I am a subscriber of Blue Apron (and have been for over a year!) I pay it with my own money. No worries if it’s not the right fit for you but this post isn’t trying to trick anyone.

        Thank you for the quick response, Jordan! I’m mainly just frustrated that your definition of meals (which I agree with: one complete recipe) seems to mean two portions of one meal in Blue Apron speak, and you still have to commit to purchasing an entire week’s plan. I feel like I wasted time providing my email address, etc. only to be tripped with semantics. Perhaps this was unintentional on your part, and I hope someone out there happily makes that more minor discount work for them, but it definitely is misleading.
