Everything…every single aspect.. of Plated’s pine nut crusted salmon dish enraged me tonight. Continue reading “Pine Nut Crusted Salmon”
Plated’s “Spicy Crunchy Shrimp Bowl” was neither spicy or crunchy. Then I went and served it on a plate. But there was a TON of shrimp. Overall it was … well, weird. Pickled radish? Not really a fan. The rice was good. The shrimp was okay. The seaweed salad was incredible!! Continue reading “Spicy Crunchy Shrimp Bowl”
9:15PM is too late to be serving Martha’s Hanger Steak & Chimichurri with potato and poblano salad. So I put everything onto a single plate, set out a fork and a very sharp knife, offering the plate to Jaimi, and backed away cautiously. Continue reading “Hanger Steak with Chimichurri Potato & Poblano Salad”
After last night I was very skeptical of Martha & Marley Spoon’s Stir-Fried Pork and Rice. I didn’t trust where they were going with the flavor profile, though I was pleasantly surprised after a couple minor modifications: Continue reading “Stir-Fried Pork and Rice”
That’s a great big nope in my book. Plated’s “Peruvian” Beef Kebabs. The flavor profile was just off. Maybe I started off irritated and it carried over into my frustration with the recipe. Continue reading ““Peruvian” Beef Kebabs (Plated)”

I made the mistake of starting to prep before I read the whole recipe through and realized at damn near every step there were serious flaws. I corrected along the way and the meal was FANTASTIC!

Plated’s Honey-Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Potato Salad. Hands down the best Plated meal we’ve tested over the last 3 weeks. Continue reading “Honey-Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Potato Salad (Plated)”
Plated’s Herb-Roasted Pork Chop with Roasted Vegetables is what you need to have for dinner tomorrow night. Recipe attached so you can grab the few ingredients you’ll need to knock this meal out of the park.
Plated needs to rename their Chicken Avocado Burger to “Bland Blah on Brioche.” I mean, it’s fine if you’re easily turned off by things like flavor. It’s totally edible, particularly if you’re a fan of chewing on cotton balls.
