Blue Apron - Fresh Ingredients & Delicious Recipes Delivered Right to Your Door

Sometimes the hardest part of making a delicious gourmet meal is finding all the ingredients you need. I always find tasty recipes online, but there are always one or two things I'm missing--a spice, a certain herb--and who wants to drive all the way to the grocery store with four kids to pick up one or two things? Thankfully, Blue Apron makes it easy to create delicious recipes without any hassle at all. This fantastic service hand picks yummy recipes that meet your specifications, and delivers all the ingredients right to your door.

I got to try out the Blue Apron subscription and it was an amazing process from start to finish. First, when you sign up, you can choose certain preferences. If you're a vegetarian or happen to be allergic to shellfish, you won't have to worry about getting items you won't eat. Once the box arrives, you'll be in for a real treat. Absolutely everything you need is included, from the meats to the condiments. I was amazed by how fresh and beautiful their produce was. There were succulent mushrooms and lush greenery, all delivered in a big box to my door.

There were ingredients for three recipes in my box. This was enough for three meals for two people. One of the recipes was a Spicy Asian Chicken Noodle Soup with Red Curry & Mushrooms. I can't eat spicy food, so I had to skip this, but the other two were right up my ally. First, there were Short Rib Burgers on Pretzel Buns with Hoppy Cheddar Sauce ad Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds. This one was pretty easy. We just had to slice up the sweet potato and grill burgers. The hardest part was making the cheese sauce, but it did make for an extra yummy burger.

The second recipe we prepared was Roasted Salmon, Fennel, & Castelvetrano Olives. This one was a little more work, but definitely worth the effort. The salmon looked beautiful on a bed of farro and I felt like a master chef when I served up this meal.

Both of these meals were absolutely delicious. They recipes are easy to follow, but they are a lot of steps and will take some time. Its well worth the effort, but don't expect to have it ready in ten minutes. By no means do you need to be a professional chef, but some experience in the kitchen is mandatory.
