try cookin

cooking can sometimes be an intimidating thing for me. i often find myself pinning recipes that look just SO GOOD and going out and buying all the ingredients for the recipe, spending a zillion dollars on ingredients and then never using the rest of the ingredients.

hi, i'm a monster.

but i saw cookin through some friends on instagram, and i was intrigued. they promised me recipes that were quick, delicious and easy, and a grocery list that wouldn't put produce to waste. were they in my kitchen watching me waste everything???? oh, and there's no charge for getting the menus. yeah. they're free. it's all free.

so when they approached me to give one of their menus a shot, i was all like SIGN ME UP.

first you pick your menu. i decided to go with a pescetarian menu (they even have vegetarian and vegan specific menus!) because shrimp makes me feel fancy. they set me up with a grocery list featuring exactly what i would need to make three dinners for two people.

once i picked everything up (for under $40!), i came home ready to cook. the three recipes were from the "tropical shrimp" menu, and were totally different. i'm super busy these days (lol all days), so i want meals i can make quickly. a lot of recipes out there claim to be done in 15 minutes, but there i am 30 minutes later and not even half way through cooking. not ideal when it's 7pm and i'd like to be eating. all the recipes i tried said they'd be done in 15 minutes AND THEY WERE. glory be.

and they were delicious! i whipped up the pico de gallo shrimp and the shrimp with coconut rice (the thai peanut shrimp is on the menu for tonight's dinner!), and they were delicious and filling!

i highly recommend giving cookin a try; i prefer this method to the box delivery because it teaches you how to grocery shop smarter, and it teaches you how to use all your ingredients. win/win.

plus, they're giving away a $25 gift card to the winner's chosen grocery store this month! all you need to do is sign up for a free account today! what are you waiting for?

disclosure: i was provided money to pay for the groceries in collaboration with this post, but as always, all opinions are my own!
