Blue Apron Review

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you probably know how much I dislike cooking.  On a scale of 1 to 10, it’s like a -2.  I don’t even like making a sandwich.  I know, so ungodly of me.

Anyway, I discovered Blue Apron thanks to other fashion bloggers who swore by it.  I thought, yeah I wish I could justify spending that much for food to be delivered, if only.  But here’s the deal – it’s not that expensive.  In fact, it’s more expensive to cook for two with all these fancy ingredients than a bigger family so going out almost seems worth it.

Everything comes in a box, all the ingredients portioned out for you, and we do a meal for 2, but we don’t eat much so our portions are for 4!  We feel like we won the lottery with this.  They also come with PDFs of the steps and it’s so easy with photos it makes me enjoy cooking (I just don’t like the shopping part, hence our grocery delivery).


Recipes on their site are free, this dish in particular I want to make again.  We have it delivered once a week and for 3 meals (but often there are leftovers) which works great for us since the other nights we’re either going out to eat or I can whip up one of my frozen meals I created a few months ago.


Just wanted to share for anyone who is like me and is not a fan of cooking or intimidated.  You can really cook!  This isn’t a sponsored post, just had to share something that really improved my life and health!  More information on Blue Apron here.
