I rarely cook and if I do it’s a simple dish because I’m an amateur in the kitchen. Occasionally, I want to switch up my routine so I signed up for a one-time delivery of meal service kit Blue Apron to see if I could manage the meal the prep for dinner. I’m walking you though the process from opening the Blue Apron box to plating the dish and giving you my honest feedback on the degree of difficulty, ingredients and flavor.

Is Blue Apron A Broken IPO? Probably :(

The deal is broken. Blue Apron tried to IPO at $15-17, but it priced at $10, now the stock is at $8. Surprisingly, it isn’t only because of the Amazon+Whole Foods deal that Blue Apron is struggling. The company has its own problems to deal with (slowing growth, customer turnover, meal-kit competition, etc) that do not seem easy to overcome. Additionally, because of pricing its IPO at $10, Blue Apron only raised $300M, just enough cash to last 4-5 quarters. What will the company do next?

Handpick Meal Kits ~ Compare to Blue Apron & HelloFresh~

Please check out Handpick at their website here:

This week I was fortunate enough to be able to try the new Handpick meal kit box from They are similar to some of the other meal boxes you may be familiar with, such as Blue Apron and Hello Fresh. In this video I am going to make all the meals contained in the kit and share my experience with you.

The food was super fresh and delicious and of the highest quality. The recipe cards were simple, beautiful and detailed. We really enjoyed this box and if you are interested, we encourage you to check their website out. The boxes are currently only available in California, but they are going to be rolling out nationwide distribution soon. You won’t want to miss that!

There is no obligation to subscribe. You get to choose from a list of great menus and get the ingredients delivered to your door and you are ready to go! They do the shopping and meal planning for you. This would be an excellent gift idea for so many occasions! For the couple who presumably has everything, the older parents who don’t want anymore stuff, but still have to eat and enjoy cooking, how about the newly weds who have returned from their honeymoon to an empty fridge or your best friend who is returning from a couple of weeks out of town on business and will be too tired to do any type of shopping upon her return? These are great opportunities to share a great meal with a friend or family member!

The kits are affordable and you can choose what you want so you know that you are going to enjoy what is coming in that box.

I hope you give them a look and if you are interested I hope you try them out! We really enjoyed what they sent us.

Thank you to Handpick for sharing your box with us and sponsoring this video! All the opinions contained herein are those of myself and my husband are are accurate and honest.
