Dinnerly Reviews: Easy Weeknight Dinners

Considering trying a Meal Delivery Service?

With the popularity of meal delivery services where the uncooked ingredients are delivered to your door, or popular apps like Grub Hub where any hot meal is at your finger tips, or the ease of ordering your groceries online and picking them up or having them delivered via Instacart  (Get $10 use PROMO CODE - LLANGSTON191) or the store itself, the decision of which delivery service to use is a difficult one. Are some meal delivery services better or less expensive than others? We think so. If you've been considering a meal delivery service, read on for our Dinnerly review.

Get $10 toward Instacart with PROMO CODE:  LLANGSTON 191

Since before Covid hit and made it popular, we've been experimenting with different ways to avoid going to the grocery store. All meal delivery services are not created equally. However, most of them have similar pros and cons, beware of leaving a cart empty in your weekly delivery service website. If you pick an option that automatically adds a certain item when it is in season or as it becomes available, your cart will fill up, and you'll reach the minimum order without ever visiting the site. Next thing you know, you've got 10 avocados, a pumpkin pie, and Impossible Burger sitting on your porch and an unexpected charge to your account. So, if you need to skip a delivery, be sure to use the pause delivery feature.

Dinnerly Reviews Chicken Enchiladas Meal Delivery Service
Easy Chicken Enchiladas from Dinnerly.

See all the steps needed to create these delicious, fresh chicken enchiladas from Dinnerly in the slide show below.

The recipe cards comes via email or are available in your Dinnerly account. A paper version would be nice to have also, but Dinnerly is less expensive than other meal delivery services so this is a way they reduce the cost. Of course, if you have a printer, you can always print them.

We suggest you review the recipes before you set out to cook your easy weeknight dinner. Sometimes the most important steps are missing. For example, the recipe above doesn't tell you how or when to cook the chicken, it assumes you've already done that step! This may be because sometimes the chicken comes precooked. At any rate, an inexperienced cook might think the chicken will cook properly in the oven. We've noticed some other steps missing in our Dinnerly cooking instructions, just use common sense when cooking.

Easy Weekniight Dinner Dinnerly Review

The great thing about these cooking instructions is that once you get the hang of following these recipes, they will teach you valuable culinary skills. After awhile, you'll be creating your own delectable dishes from scratch.

How to Make Shrimp Mac and Cheese Recipe

1/3 cup Panko breadcrumbs (See note)
1/4 cup grated 
1 tsp dried parsley
2 tbsp olive oil, divided  
8 oz elbow macaroni 
1 lb peeled raw shrimp
3 garlic cloves
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp flour
2 cups milk
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1.5 cups cheese (cheddar, Cojack, or your favorite), freshly grated if possible (see tips below.)
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, freshly grated if possible.

How to Make Shrimp Mac and Cheese Recipe

How to Make Recipe
Preheat broiler on high.
Mix together bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, and 1 tbsp olive oil.  Set topping aside.
Cook macaroni to al dente according to package directions.  
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a medium skillet over high heat.
Add shrimp, sprinkle with salt and pepper.   Cook for 1 minute. Add garlic and cook for another minute until the shrimp has changed color but not fully cooked.
Transfer to bowl. Turn heat down to medium.
Melt butter. Add flour and cook for 1 minute.
Pour milk in slowly, while stirring. Once the mixture is smooth, season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and mustard.  Continue to stir until thickened.
Add cheeses and stir until melted.  Then add shrimp. Adjust seasoning to taste.
Transfer to an oven safe casserole dish.
Sprinkle with breadcrumb mixture, then place under the broiler until the top is golden. 

Shrimp Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Tips:  I never have Panko bread crumbs, but I have found a nice alternative. I save the heels from my loaves of bread in the freezer.  When I need bread crumbs, I thaw a couple of them in the microwave for a few seconds, break them into smaller pieces, and pulse them in the blender until I get the desired consistency.

Packaged shredded cheese is coated to keep the cheese from sticking together.  Your cheese sauce will be smoother if you're able to grate the cheese yourself.  However, the packed shredded cheese will work.  I have made it both ways and have had no complaints!

Blackberry Pork Chops Tenderloin

Blackberry Pork Recipe

Remember when we used to buy paper copies of recipes instead of looking them up online? This blackberry pork chops recipe was originally published in an edition of, "Cooking Light." We made it and it tasted so amazing, but it called for 1 3/4 cup of fresh blackberries, which are often out of season or very costly. Our version of the blackberry pork tenderloin recipe replaces the fresh blackberries with blackberry all-fruit spread and the pork chops with pork tenderloins. Of course, a garnish of fresh blackberries, if you can find them, makes a pretty plate. For a beautiful Christmas brunch, serve it along side blackberry cobblerEnjoy!

Leftover Barbecue Meat Recipe: Easy Cowboy Baked Beans

Easy Weeknight Dinner: Turn Leftover BBQ Meat into Cowboy Baked Beans

Summer is barbecue season in the states. We have Memorial Day, family reunions, Independence Day, and Labor Day. All of these summer activities are perfect for barbecuing. Chicken, hot dogs, brats, steak, ribs, pork chops, baked beans- we want to make sure we have enough for everyone. Sometimes, we over plan and over cook. All of that leftover barbecued meat is expensive. You don't want to throw it away. When microwaved, it doesn't taste so good. You need some leftover BBQ meat recipes. Leftover BBQ meat stew is good, but most kids don't like stew. What's a poor cook to do? We've got a roundup of leftover recipes for barbecued meat including some yummy Cowboy Baked Beans. Enjoy!

Leftover Barbecue Meat Recipe: Easy Cowboy Baked Beans
Easy weeknight recipe: Easy Cowboy Baked Beans from leftover BBQ.

The day after an outdoor barbecue, you may find yourself inundated with leftovers: leftover beans, leftover meats, and cooked veggies. The meat is dried out. It doesn't taste so great on day number two, what can you do? Turn those leftovers into Cowboy Baked Beans. These are super easy to make!

Recipe for Leftover BBQ Meat, Cowboy Baked Beans

Take your leftover meats and cut them into bite size pieces.

Use leftover baked beans- if you don't have baked beans, use canned baked beans.

Simmer the beans over low heat. If the beans are flavored, you don't need to do anything else for a super easy weeknight dinner. We like to add 1/2 C. Barbecue Sauce to 2 - 16 oz. cans of baked beans. If you really want to eat like a cowboy on the ranch, add 2 Tbs. of Molasses.

Next, add the chopped leftover meat from your barbecue. If you like onions, add 1/4 C. chopped onion. Stir until combined. Stew over medium heat until bubbly. Turn heat down and simmer another 5 minutes. Sprinkle shredded Colby Jack Cheese over top of beans.

Serve warm with a side of sourdough bread.

Spring Break! My son had the opportunity to clean his first fish this week. And, I got the opportunity to cook them. Two big firsts for our nature-enjoying, convenience-loving family. This pan fried fish recipe was a hit for the fresh, black crappie. It would be good with your store bought fish, too. The homemade chips round out the meal.

How to make fish and chips at home.

1.  Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
*2.  Microwave large potatoes about half on the microwave recommended time.  The potatoes should still be firm.

4.  After the potatoes have cooled to the touch, cut them into wedges.
5.  Coat the potato wedges with the cheese mixture and transfer to a baking sheet.  Spray with cooking spray.

1.  Prepare 3 shallow dishes as follows:
a.  Mix 1/2 c. almond (or other) flour, 1/2 t. salt, 1/4 t. pepper, and 1/2 t. ground mustard in one shallow dish. (Note: Depending on how much fish you have, you may need to make multiple batches.  Make multiple batches, however, instead of doubling the size of the batches because the breading can get doughy after awhile.)
b.  Add 1/4 c. milk to the second shallow dish.
c.  Add 1/2 c. seasoned break crumbs to the third shallow dish.
2.  Pour enough olive oil into a skillet to cover the bottom.  Apply medium heat.
3.  Coat each fish fillet in the flour mixture, followed by the milk, and finally the bread crumbs.
4.  Fry the fish about 5-10 minutes until golden brown, turning once to cook both sides.  Fish should flake easily.  Add additional oil as needed.​
