Been a while for me. Been staying ďfocusedĒ with work, meaning Iím self-depriving fun stuff until I can comfortable do the things I want to without feeling guilty. Having said this, the wife came home with groceries a few months back and it was ALL junk. All boxed up, processed garbage. She could sense my disgust and later asked if Iíd try ďHello FreshĒ and showed me some of the meals. ďSure why not?Ē

Since then, Iíve been cooking like a stinkiní chef and feel the need to show off pics, though I donít out of, almost shameful embarassent. Haha. Does anyone else do this service or any like it?

Go online, choose what sounds good to make, they deliver in an insulated box with everything down to the T to do. I would have never tried a lot of the techniques styles had she not done this. Iíll list a few favorites.
-Meatloaf Baldamico w oven roasted green beansw almond slices and sweet potato mash(best mashed taters ever had), -Creamy dill chicken with roasted taters and green beans, -Mushroom ravioli gratin,
Hereís a couple good ones-Crispy cheddar frico burger and Pork carnitas tacos with a balsamic pickled poblano pick de Gallo.

I can go on forever but I realized how theyíre molding simple techniques into it all and after a few weeks, a pattern shows up with subtle changes that change them all up. Pretty genius really. Iíve started making the stuff myself once I caught on. Hopefully I can put up a few pics. It sure makes you proud once everything is played just like the pictures. Ha

I always want to try one of these companies but can't pull the trigger on it after seeing the price per meal.

Hereís my absolute favorite one. Who the heck knew what aioli actually was and the level of . . . Awesomeness?
Also, the way the onions are done, kinda sweet offsets the stout garlic flavor of it. Nothing special about the party except being good quality beef so I did do a dash of worchestershire sauce and threw in some panko crumbs left over. Those zucchini fries were no joke, rolled around in aioli, covered in panko? #slapyomamarightinthaface. .inthaface!

I also only cook from scratch. You just need a well stocked kitchen and a few things fresh from the store and it's on.

But I mainly cook for others. My Catch 22 is that I can't eat after cooking a nice spread for other folks. I nibble and taste while cooking, so by the time it's plated, I'm done eating.

Thatís our problem is having a fully stocked kitchen. Maybe when we start to figure out our eating habits we can narrow those down without wasting so much food

We have used Blue Apron, Plated, Hello Fresh before and pretty much like them all.

If you don't cook much they are a great tool to get you cooking more. Like someone else posted keep the recipe cards and make the meals as much as you want. You will learn some simple techniques that you can translate to other foods. The other thing is this will expose you to flavors that you typically wouldn't get to try without a bit of effort on your part.

A majority of the recipes are from scratch except the sauces they put in to simply things. Overall I would recommend one of their discounted trials if you are on the fence.
