I wish I could say that Blue Apron is paying me to write about them, but in truth, I just love it and wanted to share. As many of you know, I love to cook. It’s a passion that I indulge in as often as possible. I love to create new recipes and work with new flavor profiles, but like many home cooks, I can easily get stuck in a cooking rut. With meals that everyone loves already, it can be easy to just keep making the same things over and over again. But BOOOOOOO to that.
Blue Apron is a home delivery meal system that works for me. I didn’t want to commit to anything, but when I read their policies, I was sold. You can quit whenever you want to and skip week after week if you feel like it, too. My subscription is for 3 meals per week for a family of two. A box arrives on my doorstep on Wednesday morning with everything I need to make 3 meals for my family. There’s usually at least one ingredient each week that is new to me and there’s often ingredients that are not my favorites, but they’ve taught me how to prepare them so I now love them. My best reference to this is the week I received turnips. I literally cried when my mom would serve these to me growing up, so as an adult, I never gave them another chance…until Blue Apron. I made baked turnip matchsticks one week and I was sold. My point is that for me, it inspires me to try new things and new cooking techniques. Blue Apron also keeps waste to a minimum in my kitchen. If you need a one inch piece of ginger for a recipe, that’s how they send it to you. There’s nothing to go bad. My only complaint is that we never have leftovers. So here’s a few of my Blue Apron creations. I hope you’ll try it, too!
