I am the Painter, I am not the Cook!

How I finally made Cooking easy

I am not the Cook, are you? I have never enjoyed cooking, I wish i had taken interest in it but this hobby just passed me by. It’s a shame because I truly appreciate a good meal.

My design and creativity stopped at the kitchen, for me it takes so much time to plan and prepare a meal,  in my world 10 to 15 minutes to consume it, and another hour to clean up after, not my idea of fun. I don’t believe I have the patience for it. What I do enjoy are cooking shows, great food, a variety of flavors, etc.   I completely envy people that enjoy, love and have cooking skills.

My solution is the best of both worlds, I order in but I  do the actual cooking.  It’s  Hello Fresh! This is a food delivery service that I have found and have subscribed to for the last few months.

They are a food delivery service that brings all ingredients and recipes directly to your door. This service allows you to pick the meals you prefer,( they give you 6 different options) you have a choice of how many meals you would like delivered and how often,  and finally how many people to serve. You can tailor this to your specific needs.cooking


I love that I cook the meal, but everything I need is included, (I do mean everything), but I now have direction, everything I need at my fingertips, and I get to try so many new flavors that I probably wouldn’t have before on my own.  I am enjoying my kitchen again.

I find that what this does for me is exactly what I was looking for. I don’t have to figure out each day “what am i going to make tonight”? It adds variety to our meals, lots of vegetables and proteins, spices, and flavors.

I don’t have to go to the grocery store ( a chore I also don’t enjoy) and finally I don’t have anymore waste.  When I made a meal, I found that I ended with more leftovers than I wanted and leftovers aren’t very popular in my house, this of course led to too much food/$ waste.









This is my latest selection, who doesn’t love Salmon? The step by step instructions are just what I need, Easy!

These are all the ingredients included in my box, I have to say I am happy with the freshness and that most recipes include many vegetables. Yummy

Well, here she is! This is my finished meal, so many spices and veggies that I use very little seasoning, I love that.
