My Review: Blue Apron


I’m going to be completely honest here. I’m lazy. Especially when it comes to grocery shopping, which is one of my least favorite tasks. But, on the opposite spectrum: I love cooking. See my dilemma¬†here? That’s where Blue Apron comes in. Blue Apron is a delivery service where you get fresh, pre-portioned and pre-packaged ingredients sent to your door. You get three recipes a week and can decide if you want it for two people, or a family. I opted for the two person meals, obviously because I don’t have a family that I live with. For my first Blue Apron box, I chose the following 3 recipes: Fontina & Preserved Lemon Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Vegetable Bibimbap & Kimchi, and Roasted Butternut Squash with Stewed White Beans, Brussel Sprouts & Gremolata.

My favorite was the Fontina & Preserved Lemon Grilled Cheese Sandwich, with Endive Salad. OH MY GOD. This was seriously the If you’re a fan of grilled cheese, you have to make this recipe.¬†This is definitely something that I will make again. As for the other two recipes, they were good but not my favorite. Being Korean, Bibimbap is one of my favorite dishes. This was a good recipe, but it wasn’t great. It also took a long time to make. The Butternut Squash recipe would be a good alternative for someone that doesn’t eat meat. This had a lot of different flavors and was very unique.

Overall, I really enjoyed using Blue Apron. I was able to cook both alone, and with friends, which made for a fun experience. I would definitely use Blue Apron again. It’s great for those weeks when you want to experiment with new recipes and are also feeling too lazy to go grocery shopping.
