*This is not a sponsored post, I just really like eMeals*
One of my new year’s resolutions was to begin to find joy in cooking. I’ve said this before, but cooking was never really my thing. I had a few staple dishes that I would just make over and over and over. Well after hearing about eMeals on Helene’s blog and doing some research I decided to give it a try. I’ve made 3 meals so far and have enjoyed all of them. I chose the ‘budget friendly’ plan (but I can change my mind and plan at any time) and like all of the eMeals plans I received 14 recipes (enough for a different meal each day) as well as the corresponding shopping list. That right there was a game changer! I usually do my grocery shopping with Instacart because I’m an impulse shopper at grocery stores, and with the shopping list from eMeals I’m able to take the guess work and measurement out of it all and buy exactly what’s needed for each recipe (with the addition of my staples of course). I saved so much money with my first shopping trip, my bill was half of what it usually is and that was with stocking up on spices and other staples eMeals recommended.
Now I’m not going to post the recipes on my blog, that would defeat the purpose of you guys signing up yourself (which you should since it’s like $7/month) but I will share a few things about some of my favorite recipes. Saturday night I decided to make oven roasted meatballs, collard greens, brown gravy & rice. I’ve made brown gravy before, so that was pretty straight-forward with the addition of a little bit of Worcestershire sauce. That was my first time making meatballs from scratch and I feel like I did a great job. I also got the nod of approval from my cousin who’s been cooking since she was 12 and is great at it. I also got a frozen collard green recipe from Pinterest and whipped those up. All in all it took about an hour for everything to cook and it was delicious!
I really think y’all should give eMeals a try, especially if you’re looking for a way to mix it up a bit in the kitchen. You’ll thank me later!
