If you’ve been following TSC on Snapchat you know Michael has been cooking!!

Well he’s been cooking kind of.

Blue Apron has been doing half the work.

Remember how I shared this arugula pesto pasta dish? Well, since then Michael & I have become OBSESSED with Blue Apron’s services.

The concept is too easy & efficient to NOT use. You get the ingredients delivered straight to your door, measured out, ready to go, with a recipe.

So yes, Michael’s been ‘cooking’.

This week’s meal was spicy lentil stew. Literally as good as it sounds. See:

Basically all fresh ingredients ( think: garlic, red onion, peppers, mint, & delicious spices ) with yellow lentils.

AND SPOTLIGHT ON LENTILS BECAUSE they’re kind of the best carb ever. Some quick benefits: they’re filled with protein, lower cholesterol, amazing for the heart, support digestive health ( HEY FIBER ), & stabilize blood sugar.

Anyway, what I love about Blue Apron is the menu changes all the time & it’s always clean. With their services it’s really, very easy to trick your BF/GF/fiancé/husband into cooking for you. Like last night we had the whole wheat spaghetti with basil & lemon. You would have thought Michael handmade the noodles himself & seriously planted the basil, he was grinning from ear to ear when he completed the meal…so proud of the final product ( cute, right ).

Really though, it’s a win/win because Michael thinks he created the whole meal entirely by himself & I get to eat healthy while he’s busy thinking that.

Any other tips for tricking guys into cooking for you? Tell, tell.

      LOL, Jill! Just keep working on him, gradualism is the key! I plant seeds in M’s head and three months later it’s his idea! Crock pots are great. You’ll love it. Let me know if you find any great recipes. Thanks for reading, xx

      Babe, if time is you’re one concern, definitely do it. It’s saves so much time. Everything just shows up at your door step ready go. Cooking usually takes time to buy everything, wash, prep, cut, blah blah blah. Literally all you have to do is put it together and cook it. So easy. LMK what you decide! xx

    Can we please talk about how adorable that apron is? I thought it was just a wrap maxi skirt. Adorable – never heard of Salt House (other than the restaurant in SF!) and now I am newly obsessed. That stew looks incredible. Love all the colours in it. I always joke that my bf would be so good in the kitchen – he’s sooo calculated lol – so this is the perfect way to make it happen. ??

    I wish they would offer better gluten free options… on their support page they say they have many dishes that are naturally gluten free, however every recipe on the page for this week has gluten (mostly as a main component) =(
