I prefer meals that are simple and quick to cook. Recently, I was at an event and tried a heavenly chicken quinoa. When the woman serving it said I could easily cook it at home, I was intrigued.
With a little help from Madison & Rayne, a new Chicago food delivery service from Josh Jones, who was a chef at Spring Restaurant, you can transform into the fancy chef at home (minus the hard parts)!
My kids helped me choose and cook the Pan Roasted Flat Iron Steak, which also came with a watercress salad with faro, shaved vegetables, and a delicious homemade balsamic dressing. My son declared the steak “fabulous”! Even better, the delicious meal presented beautifully!
I was apprehensive at first when choosing what meal to order because the recipes sounded complex, but the ingredients came easily labeled and fresh. All ingredients are from local farms. Even the watercress had a damp paper towel in the bag to keep it crispy.
Each recipe comes with a card with easy to follow directions. My glamorous meal took all of 15 minutes! No stopping at the grocery store for ingredients, no measuring, and no chopping.
Madison & Rayne is a personal shopper and delivery service all rolled into one. Minimal prep and minimal clean-up means my time is better spent enjoying dinner! It really was simple after all!
