Dinner doesn’t have to be delivered in a paper bag…you’ve got a kitchen, and we’ve got the ingredients, so let’s make take-out at home, even better than our go-to spots around the corner.

To enter to win our Ultimate Get-Cooking Kit (with a few DIY take-out extras), upload photos of what you’ve been whipping up instead of ordering out or picking up. Whether it’s fresh slices of pizza, your own chicken shawarma, or simply a home-cooked meal that took the place of what would otherwise be a take-out box, enter to win this contest by uploading your photos here or  by submitting them on Twitter and Instagram by tagging them @blueapronmeals and #DIYtakeout.

Plus! You get to vote for your favorites to help us pick a winner! The photo with the most votes when the contest ends wins.

Let’s be honest – we all love this stuff – it’s pretty hard to resist. Here are some of our favorite #DIYtakeout recipes to get us started:

Peperonata Pizza with Broccolini and Fresh Mozzarella


Chicken Shawarma with Tzatziki, Hummus, and Beet Salad 


Two Cheese Chicken Quesadillas with Chive Sour Cream & Spinach and Apple Salad


Stir-Fried Chicken Pad Thai with Baby Tatsoi and Spicy Peanut Sauce

 Can’t wait to see what you’re cooking!
