Meal Kit Reviews: Blue Apron

Due to popular demand (I swear—at least three people were interested), I have decided to do a series of meal kit reviews. I love meal kits because they bring convenience and variety to our dinners without wasted ingredients. It can be such a pain to scour the grocery store for a particular item only to use a tiny bit for one recipe.

Blue Apron is the meal kit I have the most experience with, and—full disclosure—I am

National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day '17

Every day is a "holiday" when you have access to social media. Who can complain about celebrating chocolate chip cookies, though?

Good Foodie Friday

It's Good Friday, the meatless day to end all meatless day—I hope all of you observers have prepared! When I was a kid, this was the only day of Lent we were expected not to eat meat. My mother asked me if I would be refraining from eating meat today, and I told her I didn't know. If I do, it's purely coincidence.

Right now I am trying to decide what to order for dinner. You'd think with
