I have never been able to cook anything fancy. I can make pasta. I mean anyone can boil water. But I really don't know how to cook...until this weekend. We got one of those boxes that come to the house with all of the ingredients for a delicious meal. They give you everything in the box complete with instructions, cooking times and even pictures so you can tell if you are doing it right.

Well, I was extremely skeptical but I was all in. I followed the directions to a tee. I set out all of the ingredients with my cutting board and my instructions in front of me.

I have to admit, I did screw up some minor things. I mixed two ingredients together and shouldn't have. But all in all, it turned out a ton better than I could have ever imagined. It was delicious.

Here is the picture they give you. It's peppercorn ribeye, baked mac and cheese with truffle dust and a tomato heirloom salad. There is my finished dinner on the right.

I think I may give this cooking thing a shot. It was fun, empowering and delicious!

Do you use these online boxes to prepare your meals?
