And this is Sarah, who was also a self-confessed bad cook. She was so bad, that some family members had banned her from the kitchen.

One of her worst kitchen no-no's was leaving a plastic lid on a casserole and putting it in the oven. Yep.

So they agreed to try meal subscription boxes for a week that promised cooks of every level a chance to cook a delicious meal.

In the beginning, Sarah was overwhelmed with so many things happening at the same time in the kitchen, while trying to cook pork and eggplant stir-fry.

And on the second day, Deanna's pan broke while cooking mushroom bowls (no joke).

Was that a sign? Nah. "Plan two is pan two."

And then, before they knew it, everything started coming together when Sarah whipped up a delicious one-pan pork chili.

"I feel good about this. It smells good. It looks like something I would eat."

Sarah was nervous about cooking up her buttered-up steak because she thought it would be the most difficult, but it so wasn't.

It looked dee-lish!
