These past couple of weeks ale and my schedule have been completely opposite from each others.  I started my new job and between attempting to find comfort during this pregnancy and trying to get in some sleep, there has been little to no cooking in this house.  This week, Blue Apron showed up at our door with all of the ingredients for a Butternut Squash & Goat Cheese Pizza as well as a couple of other weekday meals.  It was a huge relief knowing that for that entire week my groceries were all taken care of and I would not have to spend any time at the grocery store. Thank you Blue Apron!

cooking with blue apronWe tried Blue Apron for the first time a few weeks ago and totally loved it. The produce was fresh and perfectly measured, which eliminates the inevitable wasting of ingredients  It took very little time to prep everything and a fool-proof step by step guide (with pictures) on how to prepare all of the dishes made it that much easier. It was also my first time cooking with fennel which was a bit nerve-wracking but exciting.   cooking with blue aproncooking with blue apronThe hardest part for me was stretching out this crust.  I still haven’t mastered the art of tossing the pizza dough in the air… maybe one day. Regardless, it turned out pretty good! cooking with blue apron

We also had an inside scoop to the Vermont Creamery (a local business that supplies goat cheese for this recipe).  The farm is located in Westerville, Vermont and it was founded by a couple (Allison Hooper and Bob Reese) in 1984.  Blue Apron shared a little bit about the goat cheese making process with us and it was really neat getting a behind the scenes look at how it’s made.  Take a look at this video:
