😢 Lower quality ingredients. We found the meat to be of poor quality and ingredients to go bad before the “cook within” date.
You will frequently need to chop ingredients.
You’ll want a pan, baking sheet, knife, cutting board, and other basic items like a grater.
Have some cooking oil, salt, and pepper.
Recipe cards are helpful and easy to follow. They include a list of items to pull out of the pantry, as well as photos of each step.
