Blue Apron

So I joined Blue Apron, after getting a glowing review from my friend Linda. Blue Apron describes itself like this:

Blue Apron makes cooking fun and easy. We’ll provide you with all the ingredients that you need to make a delicious meal in exactly the right proportions. http://www.blueapron.com

I tried a neighbors box a few weeks back – and what I liked was the lack of food waste. They literally ship to you EXACTLY what you need to make two portions and now more. I’m constantly having herbs and greens and specialty ingredients go bad. So I’m looking forward to being better at that. I am also excited to try some new things – or ingredients I use prepared in new ways. I get my first box tomorrow.

They’ve been criticized for the sheer amount of packaging they send everything in – but I know I’ll reuse all their resealable bags and such – – – and they just sent out an email announcing they are changing all their packaging choices to be able to put in local recycling programs.

I’ll be posting here about recipes that work, ones that don’t – and what I do change them up while I’m cooking.

I will also be posting their promotional images along with side by side photos of how the actual recipe looks on the plate by the time I’m done with it. 🙂

Here is this week’s selections and the photos provided with each recipe:
