Review of Home Chef's Steak Wellington with Roasted Carrots and Mushroom Demi-glace

$30 Off Home Chef This is the type I dish I see a lot in home kitchens on a "special occasion" night. The look is very cool. It seems very fancy. There's a great presentation & "wow" factor. However, it's really kinda tough to pull off, and if you end up with an overcooked steak, the whole...

Review of Dinnerly's Turkey Stir-Fry Lettuce Cups with Gingery Jasmine Rice

Review of Dinnerly's Turkey Stir-Fry Lettuce Cups with Gingery Jasmine Rice

I've tried a few Dinnerly meals now, and this is the only one I'd emphatically say you should skip. Honestly it just didn't make sense to me. I'd have suggested using ground chicken instead of turkey. The flavor was very very mild. And the step where you make a turkey gravy, make it really odd to...

Review of Home Chef's Italian Wedding Soup with Pork Meatballs with Parmesan Ciabatta

Review of Home Chef's Italian Wedding Soup with Pork Meatballs with Parmesan Ciabatta

This was a good soup, and I'd give the recipe a thumbs up. At its essence, it's a simple chicken soup. The chicken base & Italian seasoning from Home Chef do a good job of bringing flavor to the soup. Now, if you're used to an Italian grandma slowly making her version all day in the kitchen.....

Review of Freshly's Veggie Baked Penne

Review of Freshly's Veggie Baked Penne

While the softness of pasta meant i was not a fan of this dish, I'd love to get feedback from those who regularly eat gluten free pasta. Is that normal? And if so, those we need to be gluten free, are used to and like rice pasta. then go for it. For me, or those that are used to wheat pasta cooked...

Review of Home Chef's Chicken Kiev with Parsley-garlic Butter and Green Beans
28 July, 2018

Review of Home Chef's Chicken Kiev with Parsley-garlic Butter and Green Beans

Really a very solid dish from Home Chef. The flavor of the chicken is great. When cooked right, the side of green beans is crunchy and fresh tasting. Some people may be bummed that there's no starch, but I didn't really need it. The two portions were not huge, but enough for my wife and I (although...

Review of Dinnerly's Spinach Pesto Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes
28 July, 2018

Review of Dinnerly's Spinach Pesto Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes

Like everything I have tried (and read about) from Dinnerly, their Spinach Pesto Pasta fits right in the wheelhouse, of simple, un-fussy and fast. I had this recipe made in less than 30 minutes and with a bit of practice (and no filming) I could probably do it about 20. Like all simple pasta dishes...

Review of Dinnerly's Grass Fed Beef Burger with Fried Pickles & Tangy Slaw

This meal is simple and straightforward. It didn't require a ton of time, or any complicated cooking techniques. It's just good tasting simple food. I think kids and most picky eaters would do really well with it, so if you're looking for a family friend option, give this one a try. Now, this...

Review of Chef'd Chicken Cauliflower Mac and Cheese
19 July, 2018

Review of Chef'd Chicken Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Quite obviously, this is not a traditional mac 'n cheese. But, if you need/want to avoid the carbs in pasta...or the calories...this is a very solid imitation. The cheese sauce is quite tasty and delivers on the rich, hearty feel you're looking for in a mac 'n cheese. The cauliflower & chicken...

Review of Freshly's Three Bean Turkey Chili

Review of Freshly's Three Bean Turkey Chili

Overall, I'd give Freshly high marks for their chili. This is the kind of food that is going to work really well with Freshly's model of delivering pre-cooked meals. The chili doesn't suffer at all from re-heating and the flavors are bold. Obviously, you can't beat getting to eat a meal with only 5...

Review of Home Chef's Parisian Bistro Bone-In Chicken with dauphinoise potatoes & carrots

This dish is right in my wheel house, and I really enjoyed cooking and eating it. There is a nice balance of flavors and textures, and it feels like a complete, healthy meal. It also presents as a pretty formal meal too. So if you're looking for a special occasion option that won't break the bank,...
