Making Life Easier With Homechef!

Turning 30 will have you thinking about a lot of things and one of them is better time management! I like cooking but finding new recipes and going to the store to get the ingredients take up so much time that I sometimes don’t have. When I saw one of my IG friends sign up for Homechef I thought that Sylvester and I should try that too! 

I know you’re thinking well what is Homechef? Well Homechef is a meal subscription service where you pick 3 meals for 2-4 people each week and they will send you all of the ingredients to cook it. I thought this was really cool because it’s a great opportunity for us to try new recipes each week. Homechef costs about $9.99 per serving which is about $60 a week for 3 meals for 2 people. So far the meals have been really good! I’ll share a few meals on the blog here and there for everyone to see soon.

Want to try out Homechef? Click HERE and we both can earn $30 worth of free food when you sign up! Enjoy!
