As you may know, J and I really enjoy cooking. We have finally mastered certain dishes and love to cook from home together! But, sometimes we get in a meal rut and get tired of the same things. I wanted to try some new flavors and new dish ideas, but didn't know where to start. After one too many Pinterest meal fails, I discovered not only the convenience of meal delivery, but also the amazing world of flavor! *Also I have a video AND a giveaway down below!*
I teamed up with Home Chef and had the opportunity to try out two amazing, and out of our comfort zone, meals! They change up their menu week by week, and when I saw pork chops on our menu I knew this was the delivery business for us! I received my meal right on time, and even received emails saying when it was going to be delivered and what was in my box!
I was a bit leery about getting food shipped, but they encased the ingredients in a well insulated and ice pack filled package. I was so impressed! Also included was a Home Chef Cookbook that I can store my recipes and future recipes from Home Chef in them. It was so convenient and after looking over the fresh ingredients, I could not wait for dinner time! Also, if you are interested, you can get $30 off your first order!
My two meals were Tomato Jam and Fresh Mozzarella Panini and Cinnamon-Sugar Pork Chops. What I liked most about this process in signing up, is it asked me different dietary preferences such as seafood, gluten-free, Vegetarian, etc. I thought that was so neat that they have different options for everyone! AND, our biggest issue with home cooking is I always overportion and have a ton of leftovers! Our meals were portioned for two people, and the total cost per serving is about $9.50 which is amazing for fresh ingredients. Here is how our dinner came together and let me just say, this Granny Smith stuffing was unexpectedly my favorite part!
This was the perfect amount of food for us, and I didn't even have to leave the house! haha I love that I got yummy homestyle cooking like pork chops, green beans, and stuffing right at your front door!
So is Home Chef really worth the hype?! I did the #HomeChefChallenge where I found all the ingredients at a grocery store and totaled it up... Well, I'll just let you watch my video to see how much you truly save!
