Home Chef Family – A Busy Mom’s Back-To-School Survival Subscription 

With the back-to-school season around the corner and my what’s-for-dinner-anxiety rising, I had to find a solution. I’m one of those moms who realizes at 4:30 that dinnertime has rolled around again. So I’m always scrambling to find something I can make–fast! But not this season! My kids deserve better – frankly, I deserve better. I aimed to have a meal plan every night starting the first week of our homeschool year!

Sure, I’d heard about Home Chef for a while. But I hadn’t heard about Home Chef Family Menu, so I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. The concept sounds impressive – a service that delivers affordable recipes with pre-measured ingredients right to the door that the whole family will love. 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. 

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 was thrilled to get my first box.

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 loved the organization of the meal kits – it comes with pre-portioned ingredients. I grabbed the one on top labeled Cheesy Salsa Turkey Meatloafyummm. My kids have actually never had meatloaf before, so this was a fun meal to introduce them to an Oven-Ready dish, so, we 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 so tasty – the meatloaf flavorful and moist and Asher and Everest actually ate it! The other meals for the week were just as tasty – Chicken, Pepper, and Onion Tacos, and Garlic Sesame Beef Noodle Bowl…

I love that Home Chef’s Family Menu 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’s Family Menu home cooking is just about effortless – no experience needed. Even the kids pull on their aprons and help! After all, learning to cook IS part of our homeschooling plan, so making dinners together with Home Chef Family is a win-win!

When ordering, you can 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. 

You can even double up a meal and cook 8 servings to eat leftovers the next day. Such a time-saver and so much better than the “last minute leftovers” I often throw together!

Between homeschooling, 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 of planning my meals every night – and this family is thrilled!
