Cooking with Blue Apron!

August 27, 2014

I have to admit, I tend to have a set of recipes that feel comfortable to me and I normally just stick to them. But when Blue Aprona service that delivers fresh ingredients in a refrigerated box, all packaged in the right amounts for the recipes to make three different meals, reached out I got so excited to branch out and try something new in the kitchen!

To me, it can be so intimidating to tackle a new recipe filled with new ingredients but what I love SO much about Blue Apron is that everything you need comes right to you!! Including step by step instructions and even photos! All beautiful, fresh ingredients right to your doorstep. 

Not only did it push us to try new recipes but also because the ingredients come in the exact proportions, we aren't wasting anything since I don't have to buy a huge jar of expensive spices for a recipe that I may not make again for awhile. 

^^^ aren't these cards amazing?? seriously, takes the intimidation out of the kitchen! Six simple steps all written out for you with photos. ^^^

^^ When it comes to your door, everything is labeled in individual packages making it incredibly easy to work with. Once I pulled what I needed for the first recipe, then I just poured my ingredients into individual bowls. ^^^

All of the recipes take 40 minutes or less and my girls absolutely loved getting in the kitchen with me and helping step by step! 

Blue Apron allows you to create delicious, chef-designed recipes at home. Seriously gorgeous recipes! They will send you three meals per week – for two, four, or six people!! Meals are $9.99 per person with free shipping~ their recipes are delivered in a refrigerated box so ingredients will stay fresh even if you’re not at home when your package arrives. 

There’s no commitment – you can skip or cancel the service at any time! Ingredients are incredibly fresh and sourced from quality local suppliers and artisans. 

We absolutely loved our experience with Blue Apron and definitely will use them again!! I still cannot believe that I cooked something so beautiful and delicious!

Blue Apron is available in the US, shipping to over 80% of the country (you can see the full map of delivery zones here)
