Skipping the grocery store and whippin’ up meals with Blue Apron

OMG. YAS.

Feed me all the delicious food. Or, hand over the ingredients with easy-to-follow recipes and you have yourself a gourmet meal, made by me… all thanks to Blue Apron!

This is so fantastic. The reason I enjoy these services so much is mainly for the fact it gives me ideas on how to spice things up in the kitchen, literally. I’m in no way like my Mom who can whip up a delicious meal, enough to feed an army, and has the the most delicious flavouring in everything she makes. My meals? They’re bland! I have no imagination when it comes to mixing all sorts of random ingredients together for fear of it coming out gross and…then I’d have to eat it. So I stick to what I know best.

Blue Apron and I teamed up and I’m showin’ you the 3 meals I created with it. Fret not, if you’re not the most adventurous eater (like myself), you can select from a range of meals before your delivery box comes to your door step. I ended up choosing these delicious sounding ones:

[1] Seared Salmon & Lemon Labneh with Freekeh, Kale & Dates
[2] Fontina-Stuffed Pork Chops with Potatoes & pizzaiola sauce
[3] Chicken Under a “Brick” with roasted vegetables & italian dressing

Since I just got the box Saturday, I am still cooking the meals daily because they’ll do me right up until supper-time tonight. Plus my husband wasn’t home so I got to save the second meal for lunch as the ingredients provided, makes two adult-sized meals! Yas! Win win.

Select your ‘taste profile‘ and tag whether or not you’re a vegetarian, prefer the following meats: beef, poultry, fish, pork, lamb, shellfish (I de-selected the latter two since I didn’t want it in our boxes). The first meal I made was on Saturday night, and it was the Seared Salmon & Lemon Labneh with Freekeh, Kale & Dates. If I’m being honest with you, the labneh cheese was definitely not my favourite and I wish I had tasted it before topping it off on the salmon. It definitely made for a pretty dish and presentation though, don’t you think? :)

What do you think of these subscription boxes for food prep services? I love trying them out, personally… since we rarely go out to eat at restaurants, I prefer cooking at home so we can take control of the sodium and fat in each meal.

  1. It’s funny you feature this Blue Apron salmon dish because it is the exact one I’m preparing for tonight’s dinner! (We made the spinach and mozzarella pizza over the weekend). Blue Apron is great when I don’t have time to get to the store!!

  2. This looks like a great service and the food looks yummy. I love the idea of not having to go to the store.

  3. I have tried many of these types of meal delivery services, but have yet to try Blue Apron! I need to give it a go with your code!

  4. I love meal services once in a while. I make a similar version of this recipe quite often! My problem is the recipes don’t tend to go over well with the kids. Can’t win em all I guess!

  5. I think it’s a fabulous way to save time planning and prepping a meal. Plus a newbie cool could whip up some amazing dishes with this too.
