Delectable Delights — Pan-Roasted Chicken

Posted on by


Over on herding cats and burning soup, Anna does Tasty Delights and Dazzling Disasters; where she shares about playing in the kitchen and having some fun.

I thought I would also share my kitchen creations or disasters with you! HelloFresh has become a godsend for me when it comes to cooking. I love the easy of deliver, all the ingredients included, all packaging is recyclable, and I get to try some new things too.

  1. So I decided to give the Hello Fresh a try. First delivery on the 28th. The recipes are quick right? Like, I’m not going to be waiting all night for stuff to cook?

    • Oh ya, they are quick. Almost all the ones I get take 30min to cook. I don’t like to take time to cook or go shopping, so HelloFresh has been a really great time saver and getting me to actually eat food instead of deliver ^_^. It’s been great for my family.

  2. That looks really good. I tried Green Chef and liked the meals they sent me. I love seeing what you and Anna are getting in these boxes.
