  1. How do you get 21 meals with Freshly? My options are 4, 6, 9, and 12.

    Munchery is a meal subscription box not on this site yet. I liked that it took a lot less time than Home Chef, but was too vegetable-y for my husband.

  2. Thanks for the quiz! That was awesome. I got Freshly and I have been seriously thinking about doing this. I hate to cook!! Its just me and after work I’m hungry now!! I need to pull the trigger.

  3. Mine said Hello Fresh but that was my least favorite of all that I’ve tried. I was with Plated for over 3 years (3x/month) but they screwed up one too many times and I refuse to go back. Now I order Home Chef every other week and Marley Spoon every other week. I like them both equally but they are very different so I never feel like I need a break. I do order from Peach Dish about once every two months when they have a southern meal that I have never heard of with ingredients I have never tried or when it’s peach season and they have a ton of recipes with peaches. I haven’t tried Green Chef yet but I think their recipes look amazing. One week last month I ordered Home Chef, Marley Spoon, and Peach Dish all in one week. One will deliver on Monday, one on Wed, and one on Friday. That was a good week!

  4. I adore Home Chef and Plated. I feel Home Chef is larger portions and more variety than Plated, but both are great.

  5. I currently get home chef delivered and have been loving it. Took the quiz to see who you would pair me with and lining behold… Home Chef! Have to say your quiz works then. Thanks for the detailed info!

    • That’s great to hear!
