Dinner by PeachDish

The kind folks at PeachDish recently gave me an opportunity to try out their meal delivery service and-- always up for a culinary adventure-- I happily obliged.

The premise is pretty simple: You sign up for a subscription, pay $20 a week, and each week PeachDish will ship you all of the ingredients you need to create a 3 course meal for two. One of my favorite parts of this whole program is the element of surprise. I'm a planner and I plan all of my meals out each week before I do my grocery shopping. As you can imagine, the menu planning process can get a little monotonous and sometimes I just run out of creative ideas. It was great to know that PeachDish would take care of it for one night of my week and not knowing what kind of meal was coming my way was a lot of fun!

When my PeachDish package arrived I was pretty excited to tear it open and see what Alex and I would be having for dinner that evening. The package was super organized: each ingredient was labeled and in its own pre-portioned package.

On the menu for us this week: A caprese salad, lamb sausage & potatoes, and lemon-sugar crepes. I love a caprese salad, but it's not something I often prepare at home (especially to prepare a roasted caprese, as the recipe suggested) so that was a fun treat. And merguez sausage is something that would never even occur to me to buy or eat, but Alex and I both enjoyed it. It was fun to step outside our food comfort zone!

The package of ingredients arrives accompanied by a guide that includes the recipe, instructions, and tips for preparing the meal. I appreciated how simple the preparation was for each of the courses and also how easy the instructions were-- you don't have to be a pro in the kitchen to whip up this meal at all.

Fear not, cooking novices! If you require a little bit of extra help, the PeachDish website is updated each week with a step-by-step instructional video for that week's recipes starring Chef Tina too.

And all of that said, the meal was really good! I have to admit that I'm picky when it comes to my ingredients so I was skeptical, but pleasantly surprised. The produce was fresh, the ingredients were quality, and I really appreciated that the meal was light and healthy, but still very satisfying.

Whether you're looking to experiment in the kitchen with some fun and new ingredients or you'd just like the convenience of having someone do the meal planning and shopping for you, PeachDish is a great (and affordable) option for you. Enjoy!

*Editor's Note: This meal was provided to me by PeachDish at no cost, however all of the opinions expressed here are my own. Thanks again, PeachDish!


  1. What a great idea! I'm not sure I'd use the service, but I could definitely see myself giving it as a gift to newly weds. Cooking together is a great way to grow a marriage:)

    1. I agree-- perfect gift for newlyweds. Or for new parents too! Meal planning and grocery shopping is the last thing that they need to do.
