While I’ve always been a foodie, becoming a better at-home chef has been on the top of my to-do list for many years. Once the U.S. started shutting down in March, I decided it was the perfect time to get to work in the kitchen since I’d be spending more time at home.

While I love scrolling through Pinterest for fun recipes and following food bloggers on social media for inspiration, one way I was able to perfect my cooking skills in quarantine was with HelloFresh.
