50th Home Chef Review & 50% Off



Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps with Water Chestnuts & Sesame Dipping Sauce



Ingredients



Buttery Chicken & Waffles with Scrambled Eggs & Hot Sauce



Ingredients


This is a review of our 50th delivery from Home Chef. This week we were unable to prepare the 3rd meal due to moving preparation. It was the Bone In Pork Chop with Honey Mustard Cream recipe. We gave one recipe four out of five stars and one recipe three out of five stars. Both recipes are repeats that we loved. Calories ranged from 625 to 945. Preparation time indicated on the recipe cards ranged from twenty-five to thirty-five minutes. Actual preparation time ranged from forty-one to forty-seven minutes. 

Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps with Water Chestnuts & Sesame Dipping Sauce

We had this recipe two times prior and it has always been delicious. The sesame dressing is scrumptious. We gave it four out of five stars. It took forty-one minutes to prepare and the recipe indicated up to thirty-five minutes. Calorie count on this one is 625.

Buttery Chicken & Waffles with Scrambled Eggs & Hot Sauce

We had this recipe before and loved it. This time the quality wasn't as good, so we gave it only three out of five stars. The waffles seemed to be low quality frozen waffles. The previous time I ordered them I could smell them before taking them out of the bag. They had a wonderful texture and the scent had a hint of vanilla. They were definitely better quality waffles and tasted so delicious. The ones we received this time had very little flavor. The recipe for the batter didn't use egg so the results looked very different from the recipe card's photo! Very disappointing! Also, the maple syrup was the thinnest I have ever encountered and it wasn't very flavorful. It took forty-seven minutes to prepare and the recipe indicated up to thirty-five minutes. Calorie count on this one is 945. 

This week of recipes was disappointing since the Chicken & Waffles were not of the same quality we were sent last time. I'm taking a break from the food subscription boxes since we are relocating and will be too busy to cook. Be sure to check out my 49 other reviews of Home Chef before you go.
