We love sharing yummy recipes with our readers, especially ones that will get your kiddos to clean their plates. However, if you’re like me, my ‘beat the clock’ weekly grocery store experience does not always allow leisure time to peruse the aisles for anything other than our go-to essentials, let alone meticulously search for specific ingredients a recipe may call for.
But I would love to be able to try out new dishes during the week more than I have been and not just on the weekend when there is more time to shop and prep. Enter Chicory, an online destination that allows you to discover thousands of recipes from across the web and get all the ingredients you need delivered to your door by local online grocers like Peapod.
Founded by Mamaroneck native Yuni Sameshima and his college friend Joey Petracca, their goal was to create a tool for grocery shopping online specifically built for the busy home cook. “Today, finding recipes everyone will eat, having enough time to shop for groceries, and corralling the entire family for a homemade meal are real struggles,” says Sameshima. “And while we can’t force families to sit around their dinner tables, we can help more people cook more often.”
Chicory is 100% free and can be used anywhere in Westchester County where Peapod delivery is available. Here’s how it works: the digital shopping list on Chicory automatically selects the best quality products for the meals you’re making and the lowest price brands (although you can also choose your favorites too), saving you time and money and making sure you don’t buy waaay too much or waaaay too little. There is even a kid-friendly field which makes narrowing down all of the amazing recipe options they offer even easier for families.
After finding recipes on Chicory, you are directed to checkout through an online grocer with the ability to purchase anything else they offer. Just as a heads up there is a $60 minimum for delivery, but if you do decide to pick-up your order at the store you can do that free of charge.
