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

Salt of the Earth Bakery: The Cookie

I know, I know... why more cookies? Well, this is my life now. Deal with it.

Processed Food Reviews: Halo Top Ice Cream

I eat a lot. When I go out to eat, servers frequently say, "Good job!" or (sarcastically) "Wow, you didn't like that at all," at the end of a the meal. As many of you know, it can be tough to eat a lot and not require a new wardrobe every other month. So I try to get the most bang for my calorie buck as I can.

My other half is a bad food influence, and he convinces me
