Home Chef Holiday Cookie Swap


Raise your hand if you can never resist the dessert table! 🖐 Many of us at Home Chef not only like to cook but we also love to bake for friends and family. Take a look at our favorite cookie recipes that remind us of the holidays and family traditions.

1) Josh’s Italian Christmas Cookies courtesy of TasteofHome are a festive green and an office favorite. The ricotta adds a fluffy, soft texture that makes these cookies taste surprisingly like cake!

2) Karrah loves making Polish Kołaczki cookies because it reminds her of her grandmother and her family coming together during the holidays. These cookies can be made in an array of flavors to please everyone. (via TheSpruceEats)

3) Ashley loves a two in one treat! She says “I love these Malted Chocolate Chip-Pecan cookies because they taste like milk and cookies all in one bite – and that to me is cookie perfection!”

4) Jessica’s traditional Mexican Wedding Cookies are just like the famous Snowball cookie! She says “I love making these cookies because they are simple and delicious. They’re nutty and they go well with coffee!”

5) Colleen’s creative toffee was a great addition to our cookie swap! She learned the recipe from her mom but here’s a copycat.

    Let’s hope Kroger keeps the prices low. Kroger currently sells something like this at much higher prices and not nearly as good or creative as Home Chef.

    Can you guys keep your name? It really is the best of all the meal prep companies out there.

    “Home Chef” just has a really nice “ring” to it! Blessings and all the best in your new venture!

    Having found Home Chef about year ago and ordering 3 meals almost every week since, I sure hope for us mail order customers it will all stay the same. I fear lower quality, fewer choices, and higher prices with any retail market being involved unless all they do is resell the packaged product provided by Home Chef.

    • Lauri Wood

      Me too! I hope price and quality stay the same! I have had a few issues with the service which they have promptly taken care of. Overall though we have been happy!

    What do they mean “upon closing”? Will the home delivery service eventually cease to exist? I would hope not, I love Home Chef and live nowhere near a Kroger.

    • Nick

      That means closing of the merger. It’s a business term.

      • NatesMom18

        Thanks for clarifying.

        • Nick

          No problem.

    Will the Meals be available at Smiths store or just the Kroger Family stores listed?

  • Tamella Brumfield

    Umm I don’t like that. The whole point of doing Home Chef was so I don’t have to go to the store. Now you want me to go to the store and pick out a meal? I don’t think the quality will be the same or the price. You can definitely count me out. If I have to go to the store now, I might as well shop like I use to. Oh well on to something else. I hate when companies change things when there was nothing wrong with the process in the first place. I love Kroger but I don’t love this idea.

    • GinaBina317

      The notice says they will continue the home delivery system this is just an additional way to shop.

      • Tamella Brumfield

        That’s what they say now but we will see.

        • NatesMom18

          But it says “Upon closing” which I assumed meant that home delivery would end. Maybe I misinterpreted it.

          • Audra Lee Kelley

            Upon closing the merger. Not closing their service.

  • GinaBina317

    I am so excited! We live Home Chef the best! Can’t wait to add to my grocery shopping. Please start right away!!!!!

  • Cindy Stone Jean

    I am not real happy with this merger either. The closes Kroger to me is about 25 miles away and is a building that is over 50 years old. It is not very appealing to shop at so I don’t. I have tried a few other meal prep companies and this is by far my favorite. You will be missed.


    I have purchased from several delivery companies and Home Chef is by far the best for Selection/Variety and ease. I have been using them for over 2 years. Hopefully Kroger’s will offer a larger variety similar to what is on the Home Chef site.
    I was not so impressed with their current “Kroger” meal perp kits available in store.
