Our Review… So this was our least favorite of the recipes in our box. I was originally very excited about it (even though I don’t do beef normally) but the raisins in the meatballs were something I would have left out.

Still the first two meals were delicious, and all three were fun to make, and the ingredients were the freshest out of the food subscriptions we’ve tried out the summer.

If you’d like to give Blue Apron a try, and I definitely recommend them, you can sign up here. I also recommend downloading their app, it’s easy to switch out your recipes for an upcoming box, or pause your subscription for weeks you don’t want a box.

Also, stay tuned for the upcoming review of our first Plated box!

  1. Another friend told me about Blue Apron. I’m sure these days with busy working women they are really able to be successful. Not sure if I’ll ever try or not, but fun to see! 🙂
