Blue Apron. Plated. Hello Fresh. Do these titles mean anything to you? For a while, all they meant to me were restaurant-looking dinners that my Facebook friends posted to show off their fancy shmancy cooking skills. Well, NOW, I know what’s up too! And, I cooked all 7 of these meals so my research would be thorough and scientific. My husband (and children) “suffer” from my gig, and had to eat these meals. Life is tough over here. So, in summary, my scientific explanation for why people buy and brag about these meals is…… it’s super impressive!
I consider myself a cook, though a lazy one. I love to cook because I love to eat, but I am not interested in trying new things that I don’t know what to do with them. Such as artichokes, I get them only in a can because I have no clue how to prepare the giant mystery flower-vegetable. So, what I really appreciated about these meal ingredient and recipe services is that they take me outside of my box, and hold my hand the entire way! Each of them created delicious meals, but they are very different styles. If you aren’t sure which service you want to try out, please read the coming posts where each service gets its own review, and some even come with a discount code for our readers!
