Meal Subscriptions Services: Dinnerly



Not going to lie, when my box first showed up, I looked at the minimal ingredients and thought, "wow, I'm suppose to make something delicious with these five things? This is going to turn out like a failed Pinterest recipe." But I was so wrong! The meals were pretty good, even as leftovers. I liked how quick and simple they were - I think this would be the ideal box for those with children who want to get kids involved in the kitchen! 

($4.99/serving + $8.99 shipping)

Discount: $35 off first box

  • The meal options for Dinnerly were a refreshing change - they seemed to have more choices, as well as different options than any of the other meal services
  • Very inexpensive
  • Minimal ingredients meaning minimal prep - if you're busy and really don't have a lot of prep time, this is a great option
  • There are always recipes that you can get double servings out of - and not just because you ration the food, but because they actually send enough ingredients to make four servings instead of just two
  • They don't send some of the small ingredients - for example, sugar, balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar. I keep sugar and balsamic vinegar on hand, but not apple cider vinegar, so I just disregarded that ingredient in the recipe and it seemed to turn out fine.
  • All the ingredients are just thrown in a box - including the meat. Most meal services separate the meat from everything else, but not in this case. It literally looked like someone just had a box in the middle of the room and went around picking ingredients off shelves and tossing them in the box
  • They don't send recipe cards - you have to access the recipes online
  • You have to shred the cheese - it comes in a block
