David and I got to try out Blue Apron last week and I wanted to share it with you guys because I am obsessed! Basically you sign up and choose the type of recipes you want based on your food preferences and then they deliver fresh ingredients for that week to your door step as well as directions on how to make the meals you selected! I have told you guys a few times how I am trying to do better at cooking more. I always had homemade dinners every night growing up and I really want that for my family and since I have my first little one on the way I have been doing meal planning and trying to get good at cooking! So this was right up my alley and so so convenient! Blue Apron is also offering the first 250 readers to get 2 free meals when you sign up with them, click here to sign up (I definitely already signed up, and trust me after you try it once you will be hooked!)

So here is how our meals went… First up was Kung Pao Chicken Tacos..
Barefoot Blonde^^This is how the box comes – and I was gone all day when it came but everything was ice cold when we opened it that evening
Barefoot Blonde^^The ingredients all come pre-measured so nothing goes to waste and it also makes it SUPER quick to cook the meals since you just pour things in and don’t need measuring cups and what not!
Barefoot Blonde^^This is what comes in the knick knacks bags 🙂

Our second meal was Sweet Potato and Arugula Pizza & Arugula Salad (which is my absolute new favorite salad! I am addicted!)

Barefoot BlondeAll the meals were so so delicious and it saved so much time having everything pre measured and not having to meal plan and write down all the ingredients and then go to the store! Especially since we are having our first little guy I am excited to have this convenience since I am sure I will be busy trying to get the hang of the mom thing!

Blue Apron is also giving my first 250 readers 2 FREE meals when you sign up! So go to their website and check it out and even try it for just a week to see how you like it, but I promise you’ll be addicted! 🙂 Click HERE to get your free meals!

Have a fabulous day!! xo

  1. Thanks for sharing .These meals are looking seriously yummy specially the Sweet Potato and Arugula Pizza. I really appreciate your experience writing. i get my meals from Healthy Meal Delivery Los Angeles. Have a look sometime.

  2. Yes what camera do you have? Your pictures are always soo amazing!!

  3. It’s a neat idea, but how environmentally sustainable is it when you get all those little packages of sauces, dressings, etc.? It may seem like it’s no big, but all that waste of packaging will seriously impact the earth even with recycling. Perhaps before you tout a brand, consider all the facets of how it will impact not just you, but the world. Is it really that difficult to purchase ingredients in larger quantities that have less packaging waste? I know that is the norm for most of America, so are we willing to sacrifice our earth’s welfare for the sake of having everything pre done for us?

  4. I love this post! Blue apron sounds like a fabulous and convenient meal planner. I love to cook and sometimes incorporate recipes on my blog and would love to look in to what Blue Apron has to offer. Having the ingredients measured out and all ready configured defiantly helps! Looks like your well on your way to becoming a great cook!

  5. This is such a brilliant idea!! We will definitely be trying this next week.

    And I love the rings youre wearing in this!



  6. Such a smart idea!! I need to see if there is something similar in Canada!

    And you look gorgeous, as always 🙂 I don’t know if you remember but I took your advice about eyelash extensions for my wedding. I am now obsessed with them! It’s been over 2 weeks and they still look so good. Thanks for the recommendation!

  7. What a great idea! I love things like this. I’m really trying to eat healthy but sometimes I just don’t know what to make! Loving this 🙂

  9. Wow that looks amazing, especially the steak.



  10. Hi Amber, what type of camera did you use to shoot these pics? The colors on the last last shot are amazing!

  11. YUM!

    Working 2 jobs now has put a damper on my meal prep which I used to do religiously before.
    Once I get home from job 2 (a restaurant, at that) the last thing I want to do is chop, roast and saute, since I cannot eat all of the food at the place I work (issues w dairy, gluten)

    I will def give this a try!

  12. We do something similar to this since we have a problem with always eating out and it has added up! I can’t cook to save my life so I definitely want to try this and compare! Thanks for introducing us 🙂
