If you haven’t guessed, we enjoy food in this house, and we really enjoy making food. Trouble is, we’re always wanting to try new recipes and ideas and sometimes, frankly, it’s exhausting. Well, we found a sale on Ruelala recently for a site called Blue Apron and we knew we had to give it a try. You sign up and the ingredients to make 3 complete meals are delivered right to your door. It’s the perfect way to try new recipes without a) having to figure out what to make or b) having to go out and shop for the ingredients.
Your ingredients arrive with a nice letter making you excited for your cooking adventure!
Our ingredients to make: Chicken Saltimbocca, Pork Ragu, and Cod Coconut Curry.
I especially enjoyed the “Knick Knacks” bag filled with spices and smaller ingredients like chile peppers and ginger.
They make the recipes super easy to follow along with photos.
This is the Cod Coconut Curry with Baby Bok Choy and Yukon Gold Potatoes. Overall it was good – but it was very spicy and there was a lot of grittiness to the bok choy even though we thoroughly washed it.
This is the Chicken Saltimbocca with Rosemary Roasted Potatoes. This one was very good – you can’t go wrong with a meal with cheese and prosciutto, it was also Z’s favorite.
This is the Fresh Rigatoni with Spicy Pork Ragu. This was also very good, but the most that we feel we could and would make ourselves. You can’t beat fresh pasta though, it was from a place in New Jersey.
Overall, we had a great experience with Blue Apron and three fabulous meals. The ingredients were fresh (accept one rotten onion) and very interesting (we had never worked with Birdseye Chiles before). We also don’t use many fresh herbs so that was a real treat to use them in every meal.
