Good morning, my sisters,

I have a few $50 Home Chef trials to give away.  If any of you want them, PM me with you email address and I will send you one.  We love this meal service- it put a jump start back into our cooking and eating.  We had gotten into such a food rut.

I have a picky ass kid, and my wife and I both work, so we found ourselves eating the same thing over and over.  We both really like good food, nice food, and we have found Home Chef to be easy to prepare, most of the recipes are very tasty, and many of them are easy to stretch to accomodate one or more children or guests.  the recipes use fairly normal ingredients that are easily found in most grocery stores (unlike Blue Apron, which always seemed to have some oddball ingredients I couldn't find anywhere).

I have always considered myself a fairly good cook, but I have been amazed at the difference a two or three ingrediant sauce will make.  I also love that there are always 10 or more meals to chose from.  I have given free trials to all my friends who want them, but still have some left and hate that they will just go to waste.

I have been looking into Home Chef, I have tried Blue Apron and one other enjoyed them however the choices weren't that great.

I've used Hello Fresh. We like it. It's just more than I want to spend.

I will send you an e-mail invite when I get home. 

With Home Chef I have had a few misses but mostly hits.  With Blue Apron, we got two boxes, a total of 6 meals.  Loved two of them, would eat two more, and two were not at all to my liking.  With Home Cheff, you have so many options to choose from it is pretty easy to find three meals you like.  The one thing you want to look at when making your selections is the "use within" date on the recipe card.  Some recipes says to prepare within 3 days, others 4, 5, 6 or 7.  I try to make sure I have a mix of days.  One week I made the mistake of selecting two 3-day dinners and one 4-day dinner.  Screwed up my meal plan for the week.  If the week that comes up doesn't look great to you, wait a week and look at that.  You can go in and look at the current menu without registering.
