A Passover Recap and $100 Milk and Eggs GIVEAWAY!

Thank you Milk and Eggs for sponsoring this post! All content and opinions are my own.

Make sure you read all the way to the bottom to enter the giveaway for a $100 Milk and Eggs gift card!

 

Do you remember my review of Milk and Eggs from last year? A quick reminder: Milk and Eggs delivers farm-fresh groceries directly to your door, saving you time and money. Their selections, which all can be found on their website, include everything from fruits, vegetables, herbs, meat, dairy, seafood, and local artisanal products. You can read my full review about how it all works in this post.

Review of Milk & Eggs Farm Fresh Delivery Service + A Giveaway! ll www.littlechefbigappetite.com

Milk and Eggs recently expanded their delivery radius, so if you live in the San Fernando Valley or Orange County, CA, you’re in luck! They’re continuing to grow, so stay tuned.

Two weeks ago I planned a Passover seder at our apartment. I’ve always gone home to Boston for Passover, so this was my first year cooking the traditional holiday meal on my own. For those of you familiar with the holiday, you’ll likely know that preparing for Passover is a lot of work! Many people begin making certain dishes a few days in advance, so that there is less to do on the day of.

I knew I had my work cut out for me, so I decided to save a little time by ordering a majority of our groceries from Milk and Eggs. The process couldn’t have been easier. Aside from a few Kosher for Passover items (e.g. brisket, matzoh, matzoh ball soup), I was able to find everything I needed right on the Milk and Eggs website.

Here’s what I ordered:

Produce

1 package fresh thyme

1 bunch curly parsley

1 sleeve garlic

3 large sweet potatoes

1 large organic yellow onion

2 organic red bell peppers

2 large bunches whole carrots

1 lb. strawberries

6 oz. raspberries

6 oz. blackberries

6 oz. blueberries

2 lbs. seedless red grapes

6 large granny smith apples

3 large fuji apples

1 bunch celery

1 bag baby peeled carrots

Meat and Fish

2 lbs. free-range chicken drumsticks

8 oz. wild halibut

Misc.

Califia Farms unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Brothers hummus

Brothers sundried tomato and feta dip

Brothee chicken broth

To give you a sense of pricing, all of this food was only $99, which I think is really good for farm-fresh fruits and veggies, wild seafood, and free-range poultry. By comparison, I believe the same items at our local grocery store would have cost us at least $160.

Ordering from Milk and Eggs saved me a lot of time and effort. I placed the order on a Thursday afternoon and everything arrived on my doorstep at 6AM that Saturday morning.

Here’s what I made:

A traditional seder plate

Charoset (a mixture of apples, honey and walnuts)

Matzoh Ball Soup with carrots and celery, garnished with parsley

Beef Brisket in a chili-BBQ sauce with carrots

Apple-Matzoh Kugel

Roasted Vegetables with sweet potatoes, bell peppers, carrots, onions, and eggplant

Fruit Salad (to go alongside another Passover dessert)

I am a huge fan of Milk and Eggs. Everything arrives quickly and accurately, and I have peace of mind knowing that ordering this way is good for locals farmers and helping to reduce transportation emissions.

If you want to try Milk and Eggs for yourself, you can use the code LITTLECHEF for $15 off any order of $35 or more. Note: this code applies to both new and existing users!

I loved the variety and the emphasis on healthy ingredients. It was also awesome to see that the pasta sauce and freshly made pasta came from Beverly Hills, CA, just a few miles down the street from us.

I was able to make so many healthy meals out of the ingredients I received. Just to give you guys an idea, these are some of the meals we had that week:

  • Egg Sandwiches on Everything Bagels
  • Homemade Gluten-Free Pizza using the Domenico’s Marinara Sauce and fresh spinach
  • Whole Wheat Apple Crisp using the Golden Delicious and Honeycrisp Apples
  • Spicy Chicken Stir-Fry with Broccoli and Onion

Travis and I buy a lot of these ingredients regularly, so we were thrilled to see how great the prices are on Milk and Eggs. We also both loved knowing that we were receiving the freshest available produce from farmers near us.

Giveaway Product Review

Sun Basket Review + {Giveaway!}

Hello and Good Morning!

I am so, so, so excited about today’s post and giveaway, you guys! I recently had the chance to try Sun Basket, a new healthy meal kit service, and I LOVED it.

Make sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the post to enter this AMAZING giveaway and get a special link for $35 OFF your Sun Basket order!

SunBasket Review + Product Giveaway on littlechefbigappetite.com

While there are many meal subscription services out there, I’ve never been inclined to try one because I personally really enjoy the process of selecting recipes, grocery shopping, and cooking a meal from scratch. But for beginner cooks, those who are trying to eat healthier, or simply people who just don’t have the time to meal plan and shop, I think meal subscription services are great!

Sun Basket is unique because all of the ingredients are organic and hand-selected from the best West coast farms. Plus, there are delicious paleo, vegetarian, and gluten-free options! All of the recipes are created by Executive Chef Justine Kelly, formerly the head chef at the James Beard award-winning restaurant, The Slanted Door, in San Francisco. So you know she’s legit 😉

 

Here’s how Sun Basket works:

You can order 3 recipes per week for 2, 4, or 6 people. Each meal is $11.49, so for 3 meals a week for 2 people, the total is about $68, which is not bad for delicious, organic, meals delivered right to your door!

The menus change weekly, so you’ll never get bored. Here’s what on the menu this week:

SunBasket Review + Product Giveaway on littlechefbigappetite.com

The food arrives in a large, insulated box that will keep cold for 8 hours, so you don’t have to worry if it’s delivered while you’re at work.

In the box, you’ll find the ingredients for each meal, packaged in separate paper bags.

Your box will also come with a prepaid return sticker, so that you can send the cooling packs and insulation back to Sun Basket. I love that everything is reusable!  To send my cooling packs and box back, all I had to do was set a pickup time at USPS.com and I left the box at my front door before I left for the day. When the box was picked up, I received an email to let me know. Easy peasy!

OK, back to the food!

All of the ingredients for each dish are clearly labeled, so if you’re cooking with a totally new-to-you ingredient, you’ll know what it is. I was well assured knowing that the meat they provided was hormone and antibiotic-free, as that’s the only kind I would buy myself. Sun Basket does not skimp on the quality of ingredients!

The recipe cards provided in the box include instructions, allergy information and nutrition facts. The only things you’ll typically need from your own pantry are olive oil, salt and pepper.

All three of the meals I tried turned out so well. Travis and I were genuinely surprised by how delicious everything was. The portion sizes were also very generous — we even had leftovers with 2 of the dishes we made (and we’re hungry people!)
