Why Busy Moms Need Home Chef Family

Why Busy Moms Need Home Chef Family

With the new year starting and my what's-for-dinner-anxiety rising, I had to find a solution. I’m one of those moms who feeds her kids frozen foods or takeout. But not this year! My kids deserve better – frankly, I deserve better. I aimed to cook fresh for Hannah and Patrick every night this year.

Sure, I’d heard about Home Chef for a while. But I hadn’t heard about Home Chef Family, so I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. The concept sounds impressive – a service that delivers convenient, delicious recipes with pre-measured ingredients right to the door. But would I actually follow through and cook all those meals night after night? Or would the produce end up rolling around in the vegetable drawer and then go to waste? I had to find out, so I subscribed.

I was a bit worried about their meals fitting my kids’ taste but luckily I had access to their menu page before checkout. After seeing many yummy-looking, picky-eater-approved, 4-serving recipes starting at only $3.77, I simply couldn’t resist. It’s exactly what our family needs, so I submitted my first order.

When our first box arrived, I was really excited that I didn’t have to break my head over dinner planning, shopping, and prep. I adore how everything’s packed individually in kit bags. I grabbed the one on top labeled Honey BBQ Turkey Meatballsyummm. My kids go crazy for meatballs and it’s an Oven-Ready dish. So, I only had to assemble the ingredients on the oven-safe tray that came with the order, pop it in the oven, and done!

The meal was heavenly and Hannah and Patrick wiped their plates clean. The other meals for the week were just as tasty – One-Pan Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Parmesan Cutlet, One-Pan Sausage and Pepper Carbonara, Crispy Buffalo-Style Turkey Burger, and One-Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup. We'll be sticking with Home Chef.

I love that Home Chef Family is separate from their regular menu which makes the ordering process so much easier. All the recipes are chef-curated and specifically designed for families – simple, familiar recipes perfect for adults and children alike. With Home Chef Family home cooking is just about effortless – no experience needed. Even the kids pull on their aprons and help!

The kids and I choose from over 10 weekly rotating dishes that cater to a variety of preferences. Home Chef Family has it all – from classic meal kits with options like One Pot, One Pan, Burger Kits, and Taco Kits that involve a bit of cooking. There are even Oven-Ready meals that require little-to-no prep, and microwavable Fast & Fresh options for those super busy days.

Generally, we order meals for 5 days a week. Occasionally, I double up a meal and cook 8 servings and we eat leftovers the next day. Such a time-saver and so much better than frozen pizza.

Between homework, after-school activities, and a mom's never-ending to-do list, our family enjoys a delicious dinner together most nights of the week. Thanks to Home Chef Family, I’ve reached my goal to cook fresh every night – and this family is thrilled!
