Melty Monterey Jack Burgers
with Red Onion Jam and Zucchini Fries
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
with Garlic Rice and Green Beans
Lily loves soy, so this Adobo sauce was a perfect addition to the chicken. She also likes rice, so it was a good meal. Continue reading
Buffalo Chicken Meatball Sliders
with Carrot Fries and Greek Yogurt Ranch
I have been looking forward to making this meal from our Plated box. I love buffalo sauce, but I’ve never actually made it. Continue reading
Roasted Chicken au Jus
with Orzo and Peas
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
with Creamy Shallot Sauce and Sautéed Spinach
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
with Roasted Garbanzo Beans, Zucchini, and Tomatoes
My daughter has been asking me to make a vegetarian* meal. I found this meal that was fairly simple to make and included things they’ve already eaten. Continue reading
Maybe 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.
The 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.
