Blue Apron #15 & #16

Maple & Barbecue-Glazed Chicken Wings with Sweet Potatoes Wedges & Coleslaw



It's been awhile since we have done Blue Apron but I saw this recipe and I just didn't want to skip. I like chicken wings. Actually I have a love-hate relationship with chicken wings because personally I love them but no one else eats them like you should so I spend a good chunk of time taking everyone's meat off the bones (and yes that includes Rob). But it was worth it because this was a seriously delicious recipe. Addie was even asking me for more. As for the sweet potatoes, we love roasted sweet potatoes but I burnt the heck out of them so they pretty much just tasted seriously burnt despite my attempts to cut off the really burnt part. The coleslaw was good. I think if I were to make it again though I would add more mayo because I didn't think there was enough dressing on it all in all. But this is actually one that I would make again because it was delicious.

Pipe Rigate & Roasted Red Pepper Sauce with Parmesan Broccoli



This one was also pretty good. I definitely liked the chicken wings better but it was super easy to make and very quick. I wished we had more broccoli because again roasted broccoli is delicious and I would have definitely eaten more. The pasta was good (although in full disclosure I did throw it up later but I think morning sickness was going to to get me no matter what I ate that day). Rob said he would like if I made this one was again. I will add that I left out a spicy ingredient because we don't do spice but we weren't missing anything and it was pretty delicious as it was.

Chrissy Teigen's Sesame Chicken Noodles with Bok Choy



This meal was pretty good. It was easy to put together and it was really good.

Feta, Mozzarella & Fresh Tomato Pizza with Pesto Kale Salad



I don't know what it is about their pizza dough but I have so much trouble dealing with them. I just can't get them to spread out the way I want them to no matter what I try. It's really frustrating. The pizza was pretty good. I could have done without the kale salad but I guess I just am not a fan of kale in general. It's just not my thing.

Sliced Beef Pitas with Za'atar Labneh Sauce & Roasted Potatoes



This one was just okay. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. This is probably the first one we have had recently that was just underwhelming. It was a little hard to eat with steak on a pita but I did a decent job cooking the steak. The potatoes were pretty good although I might add more olive oil next time because they seems a little dry. Overall the meal was okay and even I ate it all but it also wasn't the greatest. Since we started with Blue Apron again this was the first time it wasn't that great.

Honey Mustard Chicken with Potato Salad & Roasted Broccoli



This meal was pretty good. I think my least favorite thing on the plate was the potatoes. Rob wasn't a huge fan of the chicken but he doesn't really care for dark meat. I did think the honey mustard was a bit strong and sweet but it was still good. Addison was all over this meal (and judge nothing by the two year old because he's weird and I don't even think he tried this meal).
