4 Tested-And-Approved Recipes for Easy Weeknight Dinners

With the busy holiday season upon us, it can be nice to take a break from not thinking about planning and shopping for dinner.

That's why we're big fans of Blue Apron, a service that delivers fresh and seasonal ingredients and incredible recipes weekly to your home. It's a fun way to learn new skills in the kitchen without the difficulty of creating a recipe from scratch, and it gives busy cooks a chance to spend more quality time with loved ones. Plus, it's a way better alternative than ordering takeout or heating a frozen dinner.

Our Contributors tested out a Blue Apron recipe for themselves and revealed what they think. And, if you're ready to try it out yourself, you can redeem a special promotion on your next Blue Apron purchase from each of the recipes!

Check out the slideshow above to see how our Contributors used Blue Apron.
