I honestly am by no means a chef nor do I like really cooking. Its not that I really hate cooking, I hate more so the time it takes and how complicated recipes can get. I am also terrible at making sure I have all the ingredients on hand. It never fails that I get really excited about a recipe and when I go to make it, I realize I forgot to buy an ingredient or I bought the wrong one. I also have the problem of being overwhelmed with all the recipes out there. Don’t get me wrong Pinterest is amazing, but I definitely spend more time pinning and organizing my pins then I do actually cooking them.
Well Marley Spoon is a company that wants to make it easy for consumers to cook the food they want when they want to. They create recipes combining fresh, quality ingredients with step-by-step guides. They seriously couldn’t make it any easier other than of course if the package came with a personal chef!
So how does it work?
First you browse a set of delicious recipes and decide if you want a Two-Person box or Family Box (for two adults and two kids). You also decide how many meals per week you’d like.
There is just a few meals to choose from which is nice because its not overwhelming but definitely something to consider if you have picky eaters to cook for. I will say I love that Marley Spoon creates recipes that are different yet still kid-friendly. Plus since they include all the ingredients it is nice to be introduced to ingredients I have never used before. You can browse the menu at Marley Spoon here.
Some current recipes:
Everything is shipped to arrive fresher than you might even find at the supermarket. Everything is guaranteed to last at least for four days after received. The boxes are insulated and chilled to stay cool up to 30 hours.
As far as cooking goes, it seriously is easy. The step-by-step guide is visual and everything is listed out for you. I will say it is important to read the entire guide first so you know what your doing rather than going step to step. You use the brown paper labeled package and corresponding meat and then you might need to add your own ingredients such as oil, salt, pepper or eggs. Marley Spoon does though send the required seasonings and even ingredients like ketchup and mustard packets.
Since everything is pre-packaged, there is really no prep work either. I mean you might need to cut up a few vegetables but for the most part dinner should be pretty straightforward. After about 30 minutes of cooking, dinner is ready to be served. I love that Marley Spoon makes it easy for busy moms like me to cook a great meal for my family as well as makes it easy for me to cook it quickly!
My husband was amazed at the meals we had and honestly it helped me with my cooking confidence. I feel much better about experimenting with new ingredients and prepping meals for my family.
