Home Chef Week of April 20, 2016 Review

Home Chef is a subscription based service that delivers “everything you need to prepare home-cooked meals in about 30 minutes” all on a weekly basis.  Subscribers choose from 13 different meals each week, how many meals they want, how many people the meals are to serve, what delivery day, and can even skip weeks at a time in between deliveries.  Pricing is as follows:

$9.95 for each serving of each meal

Free shipping for all orders over $40

$10 shipping for orders under $40

There are multiple coupons out right now if you would like to try Home Chef, the best being my referral link, which will give you $30 off your first order.

I completely forgot to choose my meals for this week and so I was automatically sent these three meals: Chicken Milanesa, Flat Iron Steak Stroganoff, and Classic French Green Peppercorn Pork Tenderloin.  Luckily, I think I can make these recipes work for my girls.

Whoop whoop!!  My first Home Chef delivery has arrived!  It was left right by my front door. I have to add that my house is about 150-200 feet off the street and I have 16 stairs up to my front door, so the delivery alone is a small feat and one that always makes me happy (since I don’t have to schlep the box myself)!!
