cooking with Blue Apron.

January 05, 2015



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 Apron a 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. ^^^



There are a few recipes that are on the top of my list to try! These amazing Pulled Chicken Tacos, seriously yum! and these New England Style Shrimp Rolls, I need these in my life! 



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