Kevin and I tried our first Home Chef meal. Basically, you sign up online, choose your meal(s) and how many days a week you want them delivered. A box comes right to your door with all the ingredients needed to make the meal! It comes with a handy dandy binder with large recipe cards with pictures. It tells you step by step what to do, and the spices and things are already measured out for you. It was super delicious and healthy too!
PROS: Even I can cook with these kits. The directions are easy to follow and everything is already measured out for you.
All the ingredients were very fresh and the portion sizes were just right.
The box comes right to your door. You don’t have to go out and deal with the general public or sit in traffic trying to get the groceries yourself. BONUS POINTS!!!
It kind of seemed like a game for some reason. I’m sure the novelty wears off eventually. Maybe Kevin just tricked me into cooking….LOL!
CONS: It’s a little pricey. You could go out to eat for the same amount of money. (It’s still fair pricing considering the amount of packaging and shipping involved to get the fresh food delivered on time, but you could save a lot of money by just buying the things at the store yourself.)
Cooking involves dishes, so there’s still the clean-up factor.
Overall, we REALLY enjoyed it. It made for a fun and relaxing date night in. I’m still no Julia Child, but I felt like it for one night! We will definitely be ordering more.
