Just Add Cooking!!

Hi, team!  How are you?  Busy busy?  I think we all are this time of year.  I've been cooking, baking, and running around like a crazy person lately.  I've seen the Nutcracker, gone out with a friend who was in from out of town, baked about a billion cookies, snuggled my new BFF baby Ryan, and been to an event for Just Add Cooking.

What is Just Add Cooking?  Glad you asked, dear readers.  It is Boston's newest meals delivery service. They know you're busy, but you still gotta eat, and while a dinner of cheese and crackers is never amiss, that's not really a solution.  So, they have partnered with a TON of local foodie types, including my one true love, Allandale, to bring you boxes of delicious food to make.  All you gotta do is just add cooking.  Glorious, and much welcomed, especially this time of year.

As part of the event, we got to try out a few of the recipes.  DELICIOUS.  It was held at Sur La Table, so in addition to delicious food, I also got a few new knife skillz.  And toys, but that's another discussion (my lack of self control in kitchen stores is not something I'm willing to deal with.  Ever.). The menu was:

Arugula Salad with Beets, Goat Cheese, and Pine Nuts




























Pan-Seared Scallops with Oranges in a Ginger Vinaigrette




























Mexican Cod with Garlic Mashed Potatoes























Doesn't that look amazing?  Trust me, it was.  Everything was delicious, but the cod was my favorite. I don't cook fish very often, because it always seems very difficult to me, but it's not.  This was so simple, just saute some veggies, add tomatoes, and then the fish.  Cover and cook.  Plus, with your box, you get simple, step by step instructions, with a break down of when you should start different parts of the meal, so it can cook together.  That right there is worth the price of admission, unless the rest of you have magical powers that allow all the food to cook at the right time and come out warm simultaneously.  In which case, let's chat, because I need to know your magic.

Everything comes packaged in the exact amount you need, so there's none of that "ok, so now what do I make with a half a leek, a tomato, and some cilantro" nonsense.  And you don't have to leave the house. The delivery guy doesn't care if you're still in your PJs at 3pm, so don't even bother to get dressed.  Step out your door, grab your box of food, and Just Add Cooking!

Disclaimer: I was very kindly given a discount code for both Just Add Cooking and Sur la Table at this event.  However, all opinions are 100% mine and not affected in the slightest by this gesture.  As if I ever hold back, have we met?
