The Meal


Pizza Panini with Red Leaf Salad

Okay, first let me say this tasted amazing!  Secondly I’m not the worlds best cook and one of the reasons I love blue apron is because it gives you step by step instructions on how to cook good quality meals, so this is a learning curve for me!  Although my pizza panini turned out nothing like the picture it was tasty and delicious all the same!

 Coconut Curry Salmon Steaks

These were delicious!  The salmon was fresh and delivered sealed.  Now I have never attempted to cook salmon before and my results came out tasty and perfectly cooked!  I love curry and I loved the sauce.  I actually had to make the sauce from scratch with all of the ingredients Blue Apron included.  I am very impressed with myself on this one!


Braised Heirloom Carrots and Crispy Goats Cheese

Now!  I won’t embarrass myself anymore and post my results of this one as I totally messed up the plating,  see the photo above on how this meal is supposed to look!  Aside from my terrible plating and the fact that I burnt a couple of things, this was actually really tasty, the carrots mixed with the goats cheese had a really nice flavor when eaten together!

The Verdict

Blue Apron is a really convenient way to plan your meals and I love that all of the ingredients are included.  When I go to the grocery store I usually forget something, there is no forgetting anything if you get high quality ingredients and the recipe delivered straight to your door!

The food was tasty, I learned a few things about cooking and I discovered that if i really try hard enough and follow each step I can come up with something that actually tastes good!
