No excuses, really, except travel, other writing commitments, and an overly ambitious birthday present (more about that below). Then, it became a thing to try to get back on the blog train and actually cook.
Along the way, I tested out in a few food-to-stove delivery services. Each offered discounts on first-time orders, so I’m rolling through them like a coupon lady. The meals are adequate, but the packaging for ingredients is nothing short of adorable. Anyone out there into science kits? Check out the refrigerator vessel from Fresh Realm or the lilliputian containers from Blue Apron. My first attempt for Chef’d is ordered and on its way. This recipe for lime jicama salad was inspired by Blue Apron. And scroll to the bottom for the recipe, if you want to spare yourself from the epic fail birthday gift for my 16 yearold son.
