Quick & Easy Dinners that are Perfect for Summer

Hey Mommas!

Summer break is here for some of you, and right around the corner for the rest of us! Can I get a woohoo!?

We have a sort of laid back summer that I hope to jam pack with fun activities, short trips, and lazy days. LOTS of lazy days.

That’s what summer is all about right?

The LAST thing I want to worry about is what to make for dinner every night… especially when it is hot, and nothing sounds good.

So… I tried Home Chef to see what all the hype is about, and give my readers a full review!

AND here is the best part… I have a promo code for you at the end of this post so that you can try Home Chef too!

If you are like me, and have been living under a rock LOL let me tell you what Home Chef service is all about.

You sign up, add your food preferences/allergies, and they select meals that they think you might like.

Home Chef labels and packaging for two different meals in the same box

Don’t let that scare you though because you can switch them out! We picked the steak, and fish tacos. They are labeled and packaged (see picture above), so that you know what ingredients go with what meal.

You can’t mess it up… even in a hurry! 🙂

A confirmation email will show you the meals, and a link to replace them with different ones by a certain date (before your box ships).

Home Chef Fish Tacos

The box was delivered to my house by Fedex right around lunch time. It was insulated with ice packs, and a divider between the meat and other ingredients along with a cute little white binder to keep your recipe cards!

This is how they pack all of the fresh yumminess into the box

 The recipe cards have pictures, and LOTS of instructions for those of us who are cooking impaired. I make very simple meals, but the recipes were so thorough that even I could do them.

A friend of mine said to look over the recipe card before I started, (Like Home Chef also recommends) and that helped.

Let me tell you that both of these meals were waaaaaay easier to make than I thought, and they are good size portions. We got the meals for 2 people, and had left overs. I could only eat 2 of the fish tacos, and there were enough for each of us to have 3!


Now for the good part… Thanks to Home Chef… I get to offer you $30 off of your first purchase if you use my link (Click here) or use Promo Code:  MOMLIFE


What an easy way to have dinner covered for at least a couple of nights a week!

No making a list, no going to the store, no trying to decipher a complicated recipe… just cook, serve, enjoy, and get on with summer time!

Let me know if you are going to try it out 🙂


With Love,
