Empty Nester? Cooking Changes When Kids Move Out!

Last Updated: May - 17 - 2021

After feeding kids for so many years, only to have to cater to the impossible hunger of the teen years, it’s time to say goodbye to the mac and cheese, hotdogs, hamburgers and other overly-sweet and salty meals. We needed a change, and found the perfect way to add quality, variety and spice, without even leaving the house.

We had plenty of ideas about how to start enjoying our food, but always felt like learning how to cook complicated dishes was not only a bit more than we could handle but would also require a lot of time to actually find the ingredients. In my age, this is an inconvenience I’d rather spare myself!

So, how do you start enjoying luxurious meals and fresh wine without paying the price? With the best meal delivery service you can find.

Meal Delivery to the Rescue!

At first, I didn’t really like to idea of meal delivery services. After all these years, I felt like meal delivery might be more fitting for someone young who can’t cook very well. After all, I had all this experience in the kitchen and really didn’t see the point. Instead, I just started trying to cook recipes I found online – and boy, was I wrong. Finding the right ingredients is only the start of the problem, because even if you actually locate the exotic herb that the recipe just “can’t work without”, there’s no guarantee the recipe is actually tasty. Online reviews are overrated, to say the least. Now, you’ve spent $50 on ingredients for a recipe that may not even work, and your husband is giving you “that” look…

Why I Fell in Love with Meal Delivery

Like I said, meal delivery wasn’t exactly what I had in mind, but it seemed to solve all the problems I was facing:

1. Finding the Right Recipe

4. Price
