Blue Apron Offers Mealtime Solutions For Mom

I had the opportunity recently to sample a week’s worth of Blue Apron meals and what I found was a practical mealtime solution and inspired cooking all rolled into one box. As a busy Mom, finding the brain space to think of meals is a challenge, never mind the grocery shopping and meal preparation. I am always thinking of ways to spend more time with my family and less time in the grocery aisles and Blue Apron offers a way to do just that.

About Blue Apron
Blue Apron delivers local and artisan ingredients right to your door, which means you can skip the grocery store all together and spend more time where it matters. Opening a box is reminiscent of Christmas morning and finding all the ingredients perfectly portioned brings the celebration to a different level, like new-pink-bike-level. Also inside each box are recipe cards with a list of ingredients, step-by-step instructions and accompanying pictures, Blue Apron is essentially a cook-by-numbers service {a.k.a very hard to screw up}. If you’re a Blue Apron subscriber you get to specify your meal preferences {i.e. vegetarian} and enjoy different meals from week to week.

Meals
The chef-designed meals are inspired, creative, easy to follow, and downright delicious. The three meals I created were Cod and Pattypan Squash En Papillote, Hatcho Miso Soba Noodles, and Heirloom Tomato and Fontina Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, yum. On average, preparing a Blue Apron meal takes approximately 40 minutes and costs $9.99 per person/meal. The detailed instructions are extremely easy to follow for a non-master chef like myself and what I loved about the particular meals I sampled were the diversity of the ingredients, who knew Pattypan Squash even existed? Not me! I stepped out of my comfort zone by cooking with new ingredients and techniques to produce some really awesome meals; win-win for everyone, especially my husband who ate like a king, but later did all the dishes {thank you}.

Is Blue Apron For You?
Obviously my perspective is that of a busy, work-from-home Mom and the reasons I loved my taste of Blue Apron was because of the convenience: door to door service {the food is sent in a refrigerated box to maintain freshness}, no trip to the grocery store with my 17-month-old-daughter, the portioned ingredients {eliminates waste} and the opportunity to impress my husband with some stellar meals. If you are a Mom looking for the same conveniences or looking to spruce up a date night in, Blue Apron is certainly worth a look.
