You do not need to shop, chop, mix, or clean 472 bowls/ cutting boards/pans to enjoy these meals! You just heat it up and enjoy with your family. @homeappetitphilly

🍴The quality of the food is amazing, it is as if I am eating a home cooked meal.
🍴I am exposing Lily to a variety of flavors and cuisines 
🍴 They stay away from preservatives, saturated fats and other yucky stuff. It’s pure wholesome cooking!
🍴 There’s no subscription, so we order when it works for us!
