Lately mine has been Blue. Blue Apron came into my life via Courtney at Sweet Tooth Sweet Life. She posted a review of the service and offered 50 readers 2 free meals with Blue Apron, so I jumped on it and received my two free meals and have been hooked ever since.
So here is the deal on Blue Apron meal plan.
How does Blue Apron work?
Blue Apron delivers all the fresh ingredients you need to make delicious meals in exactly the right proportions.
We offer two plans, with no commitment and no fees, so you can prepare delicious, inventive meals at home. We do the menu planning and shopping, and deliver recipes right to your door with all the fresh, perfectly portioned ingredients you need to cook them. All you have to do is cook and enjoy! We have no membership fee, and no minimum commitment. You can skip any week’s delivery in advance or cancel at any time.
With our 2-Person Plan, you will receive one delivery a week, with three delicious recipes and the corresponding ingredients pre-portioned for two. We customize your menu based on your dietary preferences (which you can change or update at any time).
Our new Family Plan is perfect for feeding a family of (4) four. Our culinary team creates four new Family Plan recipes each week designed to appeal to both parents’ and kids’ palates. You can choose to receive all four recipes (in two separate deliveries that you can schedule for when it’s most convenient for you), or you can choose to receive just two recipes per week that are customized based on your dietary preferences,.
We’ve designed our service to teach you how to cook new recipes, expose you to seasonal, farm-fresh produce and reduce unnecessary food waste. By letting us shop for you, we can bring you fresher and higher-quality food than you can get on your own in the supermarket, all at a better price.
How does the 2-Person Plan work?
When you sign up for our 2-Person Plan, you will receive one delivery a week, with three seasonal recipes and the all the ingredients you need to make them, pre-portioned for two. Our culinary team creates six new recipes weekly for this plan, and you receive a menu of three of the six recipes based on your dietary preferences.
How do I skip a week or more of delivery?
If you are going on vacation or don’t want a delivery, you can skip that week before your weekly delivery cutoff.
When will my delivery arrive?
Depending on your location, we offer daytime and/or evening deliveries.
When you sign up and enter your zip code, you’ll see which delivery windows are available in your area.
When your delivery is on its way to your kitchen, we’ll send you an email with the tracking information for your order.
You can also check your tracking information in the “We’re on our way!” e-mail we send the day of your delivery to help you monitor your order’s progress.
So with that being explained let me show you: How it works and a few meals I have made.
First you get your box!
Then you check out your goods and unpack it.
Grab your Recipe card and GO.
Prep your food.
Now put together an amazing meal.

Also had another Seven meals that I did not photograph because we ate them too fast…Sorry, Not Sorry.
So here are my thoughts on this meal service as it applies to me and my husband. We love it. We don’t get it every week because I do have a freezer full of venison and I love to make chili, Stews and Sauces with venison, but I do like to receive Blue Apron 2-3 times per month. For us it is worth the cost because we are not wasting any food and getting portion sizes we need, and the most importantly the ingredients are fresh, healthy and I do not have to shop for them. I love the variety of meals and feel like I am gaining so many cooking tips, tricks and experience in the kitchen.
After putting them together, I look at my creations and think; WOW, I made that. I Rule this Kitchen.
So those are my thoughts on Blue Apron. I was in no way compensated for this post other that the first two free meals when I first signed up. I just Love this Service.
