We have been using the recipe service, Hello Fresh (#notsponsored), for about 8 months now. Since we work from home, the service gives us the option to have a fresh, healthy lunch in around 30 minutes rather than having to go out or to rely on sandwiches or reheated leftovers. We’ve worked it out that one of us takes a break to cook while the other continues to work. Since I don’t like to clean up the kitchen, I usually opt to do the cooking!
Hello Fresh comes with most everything you need to cook a meal including very well thought out and organized step-by-step instructions. A full color picture of the dish is on the front and the steps, complete with pictures, are on the other side. The size of the instruction card is a little on the large side. We’ve dealt with this minor inconvenience by propping it up where we cook, but really were looking for a more elegant solution.
I follow the blog, My Repurposed Life, and when I found this post it became the inspiration for this project!
The meals come boxed with plenty of ice packs and insulation to keep everything cold and fresh during shipping. Steph is holding this week's recipe cards, which are conveniently placed at the top of the box. We get three, 2-serving meals a week. Meals are chosen from the availability menu the week before.
This little simple stand is the perfect addition to Steph's kitchen. The stand keeps our Hello Fresh recipes at the proper angle and height for easy use!
