Melty Monterey Burgers

I’ve been pretty excited to get a second box from Hello Fresh. I knew the burgers would be a good, simple meal. Everyone in our house likes cheeseburgers. This twist on a classic did not disappoint. Continue reading

I haven’t breaded chicken without Shake ‘n Bake, so this was something new. Baking in the pan was also something I hadn’t done. I did burn myself, but that was the worst thing about this meal. Continue reading

I was really looking forward to this recipe because I wanted to try the shallot sauce. It looks so good, but so intimidating to make. Much to my surprise, it was pretty simple and quite tasty. Continue reading

What I Really Thought of Home Chef

img_9186Maybe I watch too many cooking shows. I see these people cooking up these amazing meals without having the laptop or their phones to get recipes, substitutions, ingredients, side recipes, etc.

I saw an ad for Home Chef and thought we could give this meal service a try. We had Classic French Green Peppercorn Pork Tenderloin and Apple-Gouda Smothered Chicken.

The cost. For the first box, I paid $49.60 for 2 meals for 4 people. That’s $6.20 per person. Since it was my first box, there was a $30 discount. Without the discount, it would be $79.60 for 2 meals, making it $9.95 per person.

img_9191The Home Chef website left a bit to be desired. I could only view the recipes for the current and coming weeks. I wasn’t able to see what else had been offered the same week as my first box.

The shipment did come with a Home Chef binder to hold all of my recipe cards, as well as an insert with recommended kitchen equipment and trips for prep and cooking.

Will I order from Home Chef again?
Yes, but only when I see a recipe that really piques my interest.
