I've said it before, but I'm really all about the "love to cook, hate to plan" lifestyle. Blue Apron is perfect for this and we've had four deliveries now and I can tell you it's good. If you're too busy to plan dinners and enjoy trying new types of food, then give it a try. Two thumbs up from us. Well, eight if you're really counting. :)
The delivery comes in a thermal insulated box with ice packs and instruction cards like this:
Everything is neatly packed on the inside. Proteins will always be separated on the bottom and closest to the ice packs.
Eggs! Not cracked!
I did, however, have issues with my first and second shipments. Both times, the seal on the package that contained the chicken had leaked. (No other ingredients were harmed.) Both times I emailed their customer service and received quick replies with apologies and credits to my account. I was happy with how they handled everything.
While the picture of this salmon/udon noodle dish isn't the most appetizing, it was a favorite from the whole family. (Justin and Vaughn cooked this one together!)
While I've really enjoyed this service, I've found it more of a hassle to use on nights when the kids have activities -which sometimes is every week night- because it's a bit time consuming. On busy nights, a quick meal is the best answer for us. I've skipped the next 4 weeks meal deliveries just for this reason. (It's baseball, softball, indoor and outdoor soccer season all at once!)

*Blue Apron has no idea who I am. I paid for this service in full and do not receive anything in return for this post or if you sign up. I just like letting you know about fun things!
