Alyssa Collazo: Blue Apron Review♥

Blue Apron Review♥

I've seen so many great reviews, celebrities talking about it and friends using Blue Apron. And now I finally understand why. I've always been curious on how it works, if the food is fresh, and if it's really worth the money, so I contemplated on making the purchase. When Blue Apron contacted me to try their Family Plan, I was super excited because it put the contemplating to an end and gave me a verdict. I love Blue Apron meals and I cannot wait to sign up for my next box.

When I cook or bake I use a lot of basic ingredients, stuff you'd find in almost everyone's home. I have moments where I get comfortable making the same foods and times where all I want is to try new foods. I am thankful my family understands and is willing to try my recipes, new or old, which is why Blue Apron is perfect for my family. A lot of the things included in my Blue Apron box are ingredients I have used. For me it was learning to use them in different ways like removing Corn Kernels from the Cob and making a Spiced Butter.

I absolutely love that the ingredients are farm fresh, GMO free and they include everything for each meal which means no running to the grocery for anything, just make sure you have the basics like Olive Oil.

I was a little intimidated but thankfully each meal comes with recipes cards and it's almost like having a personal chef in your home. They explain a little bit about the dish, tell you which ingredients you'll be using and the instructions. They also have picture tutorials which is perfect for people like me, who need visual directions. if you are struggling in the cooking department, this is your key to success.

They sent me their family meal plan, which is their 4 person plan. You have the choice between 2 or 4 meals per week at only $8.74 per person. I spend twice the amount of money grocery shopping. They also have plans for two people at only $9.99 a person and you get 3 meals per week. I can't believe shipping is always FREE and they send their boxes to almost 80% of the country, Shipping Map. FedEx delivered my Blue Apron Box. It was a refrigerated box with all the ingredients inside. I made my first meal the next day, but no worries if you wait a few extra days, the ingredients stay fresh because I made my next meal 2 days later.

So here's my first meal, Steak Gyros & Corn on the Cob with Tzatziki Sauce & Spiced Butter.
This traditional Greek Street food took about 25-30 minutes to make. This was my first time making Gyros, I remember always walking past a Greek restaurant and wanting to try a Gyro, the smell alone makes your mouth water. It was pretty cool making this tasty recipe in my kitchen. The Tzatziki Sauce and Spiced Butter was full of flavor and my family loved it. I would definitely make this meal again and again.

Here is my Second Meal, Turkey Sloppy Joes with Sweet Corn & Summer Bean Saute.
This all-American meal definitely brought back Childhood memories. This meal took about 35 minutes to make, it was full of flavor and had such vivid color. I remember my mom always use to make her Sloppy Joes with Ground Beef but I highly recommend trying it with Ground Turkey and a Crunchy Pickle. Talk about delicious. This was for sure my daughter's favorite meal! The Summer Bean Saute was different but so good.
