Monday Mention: Home Chef

The best part about law school being behind me is that I have the bandwidth to think about food again, and making dishes like the Korean Sesame and Chile Roasted Mahi Mahi, shown above. The Husband thankfully likes to cook, and while he kept us fed through the law schooling and what he puts together is tasty, his cooking style is improvisational. In other words, he rarely relies on a recipe when cooking.

It helps that he has eidetic memory¬†and once he’s made something, he can reliably recall most of the ingredients and steps taken to create a meal. Unlike him, I need a recipe to work with, and had felt like we’d fallen into a rut of eating the same thing over and over again once I was helping with cooking again. It was time to switch things up and try something new. Enter Home Chef to the rescue!

With Home Chef, it’s easy to pick out recipes, and I was glad that our first order came with its own recipe binder, as well as lovely photographic recipe cards. After preparing a few different meals, we both liked how unlike some other food delivery services, we could reliably trust these recipes and follow their recipe easily to create delicious meals without much mess. The meal proportions are hearty, enough that when ordering for two, we often wound up with enough for one of us to avoid #sadlunch during the week.

If you’ve been feeling like you’d want to try a food delivery service, I’d recommend Home Chef. They’re available throughout most of the US, it looks like from their service map, and are definitely worth it because for the price and ease of use, we’ve found that they’re a great way for our family to prepare food and minimize our food waste, because the ingredients are portioned that well. And getting physical copies of a recipe makes me happy, because it means that we can re-create an amazing meal in the future. Lastly, if you use this link, you’ll get $30 off your first order.
