Blue Apron

This newish recipe delivery service (they were founded in 2012) believes that there is a little apprentice chef hiding inside of everyone… yes, even you. Dishes in the straightforward kits clock in at 500-700 calories and take an average of 35 minutes to whip up. You can sign up for weekly deliveries, but don’t stress if you are taking the family on vacay— subscriptions can be paused or canceled at any time.

Cost: $8.74/per serving (for family plan)
