The very idea of meal delivery kits are so simple and smart that it is no wonder there are now so many to choose from. I have personally tried my fair share of them and have found many of them to be both helpful and delicious. I, like many, began with Blue Apron and experimented […]
Meal delivery kits are one of the latest trends in cooking. Offered by a number of companies and services (even Amazon and Walmart are getting into the game) they provide cooks with pre-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow recipe cards, streamlining the cooking process. With a meal kit, you don’t need to worry about shopping at the […]
You can’t escape them. They’re everywhere. You’ve probably seen them in your Facebook feed. Now you’ve decided to take the plunge but you can’t decide which one to choose. I’m talking, of course, about meal kit subscription-based services. They deliver pre-measured ingredients and detailed recipes to your doorstep so you can create a home-cooked meal. […]
Food Allergen Options? Yes vegetarian Cost Per Meal: $18 – $24 Wine Option? Yes Blue Apron was the original meal kit delivery service. They’ve been advertised on just about every podcast, and definitely every food-themed YouTube show. You’ve probably heard them on the radio too. I cut my cable a long time ago. Are they on […]
Another winner from Blue Apron! Glad they kept it simple for this one, although I do enjoy the more exotic recipes as well. I guess I’m just starving for some carbs in my regular diet (I stick to high protein, low carbs for body building), so it’s cool to have an excuse to pig out on carbs from time to time. Hey, it’s for work, right?
Three of my favorite items I’ve tasted from Blue Apron are back! Plantains, kale, and steak What an incredible meal that I was really looking forward do, and really enjoyed. The cut of steak was a little fatty for me, and something about the steaks that Blue Apron sends means they’re a little “grainy”, which I’m not into. Maybe I just don’t know enough about steaks and am scoffing at a great cut of meat, but the texture just wasn’t what I was looking for.
I was very hopeful for this recipe because it looked so tasty and weird on the package. Yeah, I like weird stuff. Brown/grey noodles? Who could resist? But in the end I thought the dressing for the dish was too sour, and overwhelming. Plus, the spice wasn’t even cooked with the meal, so added a kind of dry, powdery texture to everything which I wasn’t really hot on.
This was a pretty fun recipe to make because it was pretty weird stuff (except for the salmon). The “green” potato salad contained horseradish, and those mustard seeds on top of the salmon were totally unexpected. Making the pickled mustard seed was an interesting experience, although I’ll probably never do it again.
I guess my disappointment with this dish was that it was just plain old salmon, seasoned with salt and pepper and pan fried. I guess that’s how recipes work though, and you can’t have too much weird stuff all at once.
I wasn’t too impressed with this recipe for a number of reasons. It’s basically a fried fish sandwich with very basic lettuce and what tastes like taco seasoning for spread. Bleh. I mean, it wasn’t terrible, but after a month or two of Blue Apron this one ranks dead last. Ingredients? You’re looking at them. […]
There were some things that I liked and didn’t like about this recipe. Overall, it was a good meal, but I probably wouldn’t cook it again. The most interesting part was the pearl couscous, which had a really interesting texture! A side dish like this is great for mixing up a typically boring dinner, while not getting too far on the wild side.
