For Christmas last year, my family was so creative in gifting me a Hello Fresh gift card which i say is creative because honestly, a food subsciption is a useful gift and a pretty thoughtful one too!
I must say, I use to think food subscriptions were a waste of money and I thought that the food wouldn't be fresh, exciting and even educational. I almost thought it was like Postmates but boy was I wrong!
After seeing some Youtubers (JWoww especially) cook with Hello Fresh i started to come around more to the idea of trying new recipes even if I thought they may be challenging, which they aren't! Honest to God, Hello fresh makes it SO easy to follow a recipe and cook something very delicious. After our first couple of deliveries, we really felt this subscription is worth the money because you learn new recipes, try new cooking techniques, and get to eat great meals such as these two: One Pan Orzotto and Creamy Dill Chicken (two recipes I've never tried).
Both of these dishes are really good and what's nice is you control the cooking so you can add as little or as many ingredients as you like. For example, I don't like parsley or care too much for mustard so in my Orzotto dish, I didn't add much parsley and in the Dill Chicken dish, I barely put any mustard in the sauce.
One thing i learned in the Chicken recipe is that you can roast green beans. I know sounds dumb that i just realized that but hear me out: I never like whole green beans and it never occurred to me to roast them which in this recipe was quite delicious! Hello Fresh meals have taught me a lot of cooking tips and have made me learn new styles of cooking such as using dill in a sauce or patting chicken dry before grilling it! Things I never considered! And since I am trying to expand my cooking skills, having the opportunity to cook a different meal every week is really exciting (but you can choose how often you receive deliveries!)
What I loved about these two meals is the new flavors I tried. I've never tried Italian seasoning or adding spinach to pasta. I also never thought of dill as an ingredient, just as a pickle (lol).
