This is a review of our 14th delivery from a food subscription box called Hello Fresh. This week we gave one recipe five out of five stars, one recipe four stars and one recipe three stars. Calories ranged from 530 to 770 and preparation time indicated on the recipe cards ranged from thirty minutes to thirty-five minutes. Actual preparation time ranged from thirty-three to forty-six minutes. 

Lobster Ravioli with Tomatoes & Tarragon Cream Sauce

When I saw they were offering Lobster Ravioli I just had to order a box for that week! I love ravioli and lobster ravioli is hard to find in my area. Not only does this meal kit offer lobster, but also shrimp, yum! We gave this recipe five out of five stars. It was scrumptious! Definitely a crave worthy recipe! The sauce made with tarragon, sour cream, butter, salt and pepper was delicious. It was a healthy portion that was filling. It has 620 calories and preparation time indicated is thirty-five minutes. Actual preparation time was thirty-three minutes. If they offer this recipe again, I'll be sure to order it.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Sausage & Orange Wedges

We gave the sausage five stars and the pancakes three stars for a rating of four stars out of five. The photo above doesn't show the actual sausage we were sent because the eggs were bad, so we just ate the sausage that night. Later we bought some replacement eggs and Hubby made the pancakes and added some Publix ground sausage. The sausage they sent was so tasty. We weren't crazy about the addition of ricotta cheese to the pancakes. It was just a bit odd and it made the pancakes heavy instead of fluffy. We made lemon pancakes before and we prefer them without ricotta cheese, but instead fresh blueberries, so much tastier. Really surprising that this recipe comes in at only 530 calories and yet it was very filling. Preparation time on the recipe cards states thirty-five minutes. 

Blackened Fish Tacos with Caramelized Pineapple & Red Cabbage Slaw

I love fish tacos, so I had to order this recipe. We gave it only three stars though. It needed some more cajun spice and more pineapple. I like how the recipe caramelized the pineapple so it was a sweeter flavor and less tart. This way it didn't overwhelm the other flavors in the taco. It was a healthy portion at it came in at 770 calories. Preparation time indicated is thirty minutes while actual preparation time was forty-six minutes.

We really enjoyed this week of recipes from Hello Fresh and only one item went bad during shipping. Unfortunately, they place the eggs at the top of the box far from the ice packs. All of the meal kit companies I've purchased from do the same. Fortunately, eggs are very inexpensive to replace. I'm sure they will give me a store credit for them when I send an email as they have done so in the past. We also enjoyed that the actual cooking times were quite low compared to the competition.
