    What happens when Emily Atack and our crew invite themselves over for dinner with three different families, all of whom shop with HelloFresh and fancy themselves as mealtime masters? 

    In our first episode of How to Master Mealtimes with Emily Atack, Emily meets ~glowing~ new parents, Nadia and Sunni. The two were struggling to juggle life with a newborn. Enter, HelloFresh! 

    Inspired by Nadia and Sunni’s story, we thought we’d share a couple of tricks you need to have ready in your arsenal next time you need dinner on the table, pronto. 

    From lightening-fast dinners to one-pot wonders, here’s everything you need to master speedy dinners at home and stave off the temptation of frozen dinners. Goodbye, frozen quiches.
