28th Blue Apron Subscription Box Review


Spicy Veracruz Style Shrimp with Brown Rice


Ingredients


Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita with Sautéed Mushrooms & Onion


Ingredients


Zatar Spiced Beef Burgers with Harissa Mayo & Tahini Zucchini


Ingredients


This is a review of our 28th delivery from a weekly food subscription box called Blue Apron for $59.94. We gave all three recipes three out of five stars this week. Calories range from 490 to 850 and preparation time indicated on the recipe cards range from 30 to 50 minutes. Actual preparation time was 42 minutes to over an hour.

Spicy Veracruz Style Shrimp with Brown Rice

We gave this recipe three out of five stars. I was grateful that it had plenty of shrimp since meal kit companies tend to skimp on it. While it was a tasty sweet & sour dish, it just wasn't fabulous. There were too many capers & raisins and they gave us white rice instead of the advertised brown rice. I would have preferred fresh jalapeño rather than pickled. This recipe has only 490 calories yet it was a generous portion. It took 42 minutes to prepare while the recipe card states 30-40 minutes.

Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita with Sautéed Mushrooms & Onion

We gave this recipe only three stars since it wasn't spicy enough and the instructions need to be improved on. They only gave us four tortillas for two people while other meal kit companies send six. They were overfilled, so they fell apart while eating. The tomatoes were too large and should have been cooked. There wasn't enough Mexican crema nor chipotle chile paste. We skipped the sugar, it was totally not necessary! We skipped the pickled jalapeño they sent us and used some fresh jalapeño we had on hand which tastes so much better and doesn't upset my stomach. The recipe was in serious need of another spice and some green or red pepper. The chicken should have been sliced prior to marinating so that the chicken was covered better. This recipe has 850 calories and preparation time was over an hour. The recipe card states 40 to 50 minutes of preparation time.

Zatar Spiced Beef Burgers with Harissa Mayo & Tahini Zucchini

We gave this one three stars. We would have liked some cheese on the burger and some lettuce. Tzatziki sauce would have tasted so much better on the zucchini rather than tahini. The ground beef was of high quality and delicious.  This recipe has 740 calories and preparation time was 50 minutes. The recipe card states 35 to 45 minutes to prepare.

This was the second week in a row that we only gave the recipes three out of five stars so I'm going to skip my next planned order. We are expecting a box from Hello Fresh tomorrow and the next week. They are currently our favorite meal kit subscription between the high rated meals and the well-chilled shipping box for the summer months. Which food subscription box is your current favorite?

Hi Poke Restaurant Review - Morrisville, NC

9573 Chapel Hill Road
Morrisville, NC  27560
(919) 650-3398


Exterior View


Interior View


Poke Bar Part I - Proteins & Mix-ins


Poke Bar Part II - Toppings


This is a review of a new Asian restaurant located in Morrisville, North Carolina called Hi Poke. They have been open for one month and their hours are everyday from 11 am until 9 pm. They are located across from Target at Park West in the Park Place Shopping Center near the intersection of Chapel Hill Road & NW Cary Parkway. They are on the right side of Food Lion. We visited on a Sunday around 1:30 pm. They had a few other customers, so this is a nice quiet time to visit.

Hubby & I were immediately greeted by a young Asian lady and handed a menu and then directed to the ordering area. We were both able to start our orders at the same time since they had plenty of staff. We both chose a build your own deluxe poke bowl with mixed greens, two scoops of salmon and one scoop of tuna. It costs $12.99 and includes three proteins and unlimited toppings. You can also choose from a classic bowl for $10.99 which includes two scoops of protein and five toppings. If you can't decide, you can choose from five bowls that they have created for $10.99 to $12.99. There is also a kids' meal. For my mix-ins I chose cucumber, cilantro, jalapeño, scallions and red onion. For my dressing, I chose eel sauce. She mixed my proteins and toppings in the dressing and then added it to my mixed greens. For my toppings I chose tomato, carrots, cucumber, masago and shredded nori. Take a peek at my selections:


Hubby chose the same except he skipped the tomato & carrot and added crab salad. He chose the spicy mayo dressing. Take a peek:


We both really enjoyed our poke bowls, but Hubby would skip the crab salad next time since it was too sweet. All of the vegetables were fresh and crisp and the fish was scrumptious. Check out the menu for further details. Drinks are limited to Hawaii Sun, coconut water, Pure Leaf Sweet Tea, Bai, water, La Sparkling water and cucumber water. They also offer complimentary lemon water. I ordered the cucumber water which was refreshing and tasty:


Plus, I snagged a free keychain as shown above. They serve the poke bowl in biodegradable paper bowls and offer wood chopsticks, soy sauce and plastic forks. There are several tables and some bar seating at the front. If it's the lunch or dinner rush prepare to carry out. If I lived closer by, I would frequent it for carry out!

I highly recommend you give this new restaurant a try for your next lunch. It was a very delicious and healthy meal. The staff was prompt, quick, attentive and very friendly and more than happy to answer any questions. We were asked twice while dining if everything was ok. I asked for some extra eel sauce. She was very happy to deliver and when we left she thanked us for our business which I really appreciate. What's your favorite Asian restaurant in the Triangle?

Be sure to check out my other restaurant reviews before you go. There are over one hundred of them listed on my Pinterest Restaurant Reviews Board. Please do me a favor and share this restaurant review blog post with your friends via Twitter & Facebook. Sharing would be most appreciated:

Macy's Beauty Box Review - July 2018



All Stars


This is a review of a monthly cosmetic subscription box from Macy's for $15 including shipping. The approximate value of this month's box is $67.18 not including the $10 coupon nor the cosmetic bag. Bargain! I received the following products:
  1. Lancôme - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover, made in the USA, 1.7 fl. oz., $12.14 retail value
  2. Elizabeth Arden - Prevage Anti-aging Intensive Repair Daily Serum, made in the USA, 1.7 oz., $39.10 retail value
  3. Clarins - Tonic Body Treatment Oil, made in France, .33 fl. oz., $6.21  retail value
  4. Benefit Cosmetics - POREfessional Face Primer, made in the USA , .1 fl. oz., $4.13 retail value
  5. Rituals - The Ritual of Hammam Refreshing Foaming Shower Gel, made in Germany, 1.6 fl. oz., $3.58 retail value
  6. Georgio Armani - Si Passione Eau de Parfum Spray, made in France, .04 fl. oz., $2.02 retail value 
  7. $10 coupon for beauty products at Macy's in store or online
This month's samples are all top sellers and they have five star ratings! I've received a sample of the Benefit Cosmetics face primer previously and I'm a fan. It actually reduces the appearance of your pores. I use it on my nose and on smiles lines which is where my pores are most noticeable. It takes the smallest amount and it's amazing. I highly recommend you give it a try! I'm always a bit nervous about body oils since they tend to leave an oiliness on the skin which I don't care for. They tend to just sit on the skin rather than sinking in. The Clarins oil smells very earthy and it sinks in a bit, but it does leave a bit of stickiness. It's best to really rub it in so it's less sticky. This one is for preventing or treating stretch marks and the reviews say it's expensive, but it works. I wish it had a dropper or a top that would stop it from coming out of the bottle so quickly. You have to be very careful with it. It has hazelnut oil and rosemary, geranium and mint extracts. I love the idea of a foaming shower gel! I've never heard of the brand Rituals before, have you? It foams up like shaving cream and it has a strong perfume which is a bit too strong during application. After rinsing it leaves a light fragrance that is quite long lasting. It takes very little, so apply sparingly. The Georgia Armani perfume has top notes of sparkling pear, heart notes of rose, base notes of woody vanilla and it's a romantic and feminine scent. It's ok, but it's not one I would purchase. The Lancôme makeup remover requires the use of a cotton ball or pad to use it since it's as thin as water. I prefer makeup removers that don't require cotton pads since I usually use it in the shower. I have sampled it before. If I have some really stubborn waterproof mascara that's hard to get off, this is the product I reach for. I look forward to seeing if I have any results from the Elizabeth Arden Prevage over time. For first impressions, it's appears to be a gel and a lotion mixed together and it sinks in quickly. Oh my, it's price tag is $230.00 for ONE ounce! Wow! That is an insane price!

It's a really nice bag of samples this month and I'm very happy that the coupon is doubled this month! I'll be purchasing some sheet masks with it. My favorite product is the Clarins Treatment Oil though I will also enjoy trying out the Elizabeth Arden Prevage since it's so insanely expensive. My least favorite item is the perfume. If you received this month's box, which item is your favorite? If you haven't subscribed, may I ask what is keeping you from ordering?

Check out my reviews of the previous Macy's Beauty Boxes:

June 2018 $44.43 retail value
May 2018 $43.95 retail value
April 2018 $43.24 retail value
December 2017 $63.14 retail value
November 2017 $38.21 retail value
October 2017 $55.97 retail value
September 2017 $31.84 retail value

20th Hello Fresh Subscription Box Review & $40 Coupon


Cranberry Drizzled Duck with Watercress Salad & Mashed Potatoes


Ingredients


Maple & Rosemary Glazed Pork Cutlets with Couscous & a Creamy Apple Salad


Ingredients


Honey Sriracha Chicken Legs with Basmati Rice & Green Beans


Ingredients


This is a review of our 20th delivery from a weekly food subscription service called Hello Fresh. This week we gave one recipe five out of five stars, one recipe four stars and one recipe three stars. The calories ranged from 740 to 830. Preparation time indicated on the recipe cards ranges from 25 to 55 minutes. Actual preparation time ranged from 30 to 60 minutes. Our favorite recipe this week was the Maple & Rosemary Glazed Pork Cutlets.

Cranberry Drizzled Duck with Watercress Salad & Mashed Potatoes

We gave this recipe four out of five stars. The duck breast with the cranberry sauce was scrumptious. The sauce was made with duck fat, shallot, thyme, demi-glace, cranberry jam, water, lemon juice and pepper. Just thinking about it is making me hungry, so yummy. Anytime they offer duck I order it since it's of high quality and delicious. The one thing I'd change for this recipe to make it five stars would be to add a spring mix to the watercress, it was a bit to earthy for me all by itself. The mashed potatoes were very tasty and they were made with Yukon Gold Potatoes, milk, garlic, butter, salt and pepper. This one was a healthy portion and it had 740 calories. It took around one hour to prepare while the recipe card states 55 minutes to prepare.

Maple & Rosemary Glazed Pork Cutlets with Couscous & a Creamy Apple Salad

We gave this recipe five out five stars, it was absolutely scrumptious and certainly crave worthy! The sauce made with fresh rosemary, white wine vinegar, maple syrup from Vermont, stock concentrate, water, butter, salt and pepper was incredibly tasty. The salad was made with spring mix, Heinz Mayo, white wine vinegar, apple, scallions, salt and pepper. It was yummy and they gave us a coupon worth up to $4.50 for a bottle of the new creamy Heinz Mayonnaise which was a lovely surprise. This one has 740 calories and it was a generous portion with plenty of salad. Not all of the salad could fit on the plate, so the photo above shows less than half. The couscous had scallion whites and fresh rosemary added to it which made for a lovely flavor. It took only 30 minutes to prepare and the recipe card stated 25 minutes.

Honey Sriracha Chicken Legs with Basmati Rice & Green Beans

We gave this recipe three out of five stars. The glaze was the main issue, it didn't mix well and it burned a bit when it was baked on the chicken leg. The glaze was made with scallion whites, soy sauce, honey, sriracha and sesame oil. While it was tasty, it could be improved on for sure. I also think the cooking process was overly complicated having to cook it in the skillet and then bake it and the cooking time seemed a bit too long. The green beans and rice were delicious. It was a healthy portion and it had 830 calories which seems a bit high for what it was. Preparation time was one hour and the recipe card states 55 minutes.

It was a very enjoyable week of recipes and we look forward to our next shipment which will be shipped next week. We ordered the following recipes:  Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin, Greek Dinner Burgers and New York Strip Steak with Truffle Butter. If you haven't given Hello Fresh a try, I highly recommend you grab the $40 coupon below today. For only $19.94 you can receive your first box, so what are you waiting for, click the link and have fun choosing your three recipes. Check out all the recipes we have made so far on my Hello Fresh Pinterest Board What's your favorite meal delivery service?

27th Blue Apron Subscription Box Review


Spiced Chicken Breasts & Mashed Potatoes with Blue Cheese Kale Salad


Ingredients


Spinach, Tomato & Goat Cheese Quiches with Roasted Zucchini


Ingredients


Chinese Chicken Salad with Crispy Wonton Noodles


Ingredients


This is a review of our 27th delivery from a weekly food subscription box called Blue Apron. Normally, a box of six servings costs $59.94, but this week I had a $15 coupon to unskip, so I did. We gave all three recipes three out of five stars. Calories ranged from 610 to 700 and preparation time indicated on the recipe cards ranges from 25 to 50 minutes. Actual preparation time ranged from 53 to 65 minutes.

Spiced Chicken Breasts & Mashed Potatoes with Blue Cheese Kale Salad

We gave this recipe three out of five stars. They had given us crema bel paese cheese before and it was delicious. Since there were too many potatoes this time, it wasn't as flavorful. The weekend hero spice blend made with onion powder garlic powder, smoked paprika and dried parsley was ok, but not exciting. The salad made with kale, crumbled blue cheese, sour cream, milk, salt and pepper was very tasty. This one has 660 calories and it was a healthy portion. While the recipe card stated up to 35 minutes preparation time, actual preparation time was 54 minutes.

Spinach, Tomato & Goat Cheese Quiches with Roasted Zucchini

I absolutely love quiche and I rarely eat it due to high calories, so when I saw this one came in at only 610 calories I immediately ordered it. We gave this recipe three out of five stars. It had too much filling and not enough egg. Only one egg per pie wasn't enough. There was too much tomato and the spinach should have been cut into smaller pieces. The feta cheese dried out when it baked. It would have been better to skip the feta cheese and add more goat cheese. Also, there wasn't enough of the red pepper flakes to add enough spice. The pie crust was exceptional and it was wonderfully buttery. I usually don't eat much pie crust, but this one was worth the calories. Hubby skipped the crust to lower the carb count. It was suppose to come with broccoli, but they substituted zucchini. It was a generous portion. This recipe states up to 50 minutes preparation time while it took Hubby 53 minutes to prepare.

Chinese Chicken Salad with Crispy Wonton Noodles

For several weeks, celebrity Chrissy Teigen has been offering her recipes at Blue Apron. This is one of her Asian recipes. We found it disappointing and gave it only three out of five stars. It had too much filler, too much cabbage & carrots. While we appreciated that the crispy noodles were made with fresh wonton noodles, they were too narrow and not very tasty. It needed more spice, just one tablespoon of sambal oelek wasn't enough. It could have been made so much tastier with just a few changes. It also has a lot of calories, coming in at 700. It didn't taste like a cheat meal though, unfortunately and it was way too large a portion. We had a ton of cabbage, noodles and shredded carrot leftover. There was just enough chicken for a healthy portion. The recipe card states up to 40 minutes preparation time, while actual prep time was 65 minutes.

It was a disappointing week of recipes this week. We are expecting another box this Friday and based on previous weeks it should be better than this last one. Which food subscription box is your current favorite? If you haven't tried Blue Apron yet, be sure to enter my current Blue Apron giveaway.

27th - come back July 23rd for another 7 days of brand updates! (Aug. 27th-Sept. 2nd)


I'm shocked July is a couple days away. So how many June TSVs did you order? I ordered one, the Tatcha set, which I will review soon. Unfortunately, they didn't ship my preorder for six days, so I wasn't able to review in time for its air date. Anyone else have their orders delayed leaving the warehouse lately? Oh, that dreaded "in process" status!

So here's the brand list for July and a bit of August which I will update every Monday with an additional seven brands. QVC has made the job of keeping up with the TSV preorder information a daily job now, so be sure to check the list daily for updates. So of the 31 days of July, which TSV brand are you most excited for? I'm excited for the Vionic, Bethlehem Lights, Harry Slatkin, Emeril, Valerie Parr Hill and IT Cosmetics. The TSV for the 1st is certainly adorable, but so pricey. The Santa is my favorite. Costco sells similar decorations, but they are close to that price also. I guess their Christmas in July celebration won't be as big as previous years since there are only a couple of brands that can offer Christmas themed products. I really enjoy watching QVC during the celebration, how about you? They currently have a sneak peek up, so check that out and Valerie will give a sneak peek at the end of this week on Facebook. 

Time for gratitude, thanks go out to those that helped out this past month. Thank you, Nicole, for your generous donation! Join me in thanking Amy, Cindy, Danielle, Lynn, Megan, Nicole and Tanya for preorder information! Thanks so much, ladies! Thanks also go out to those that clicked on the advertising or used my affiliate or referral links. In addition, thanks to those that follow & like this blog's Facebook page and click share.
