I am not very adventurous in the
kitchen; I would love to be more confident trying different ingredients and
making meals from scratch. My mum makes
delicious meals and her talent never rubbed off on me. Well that may soon be changing, I was sent a
sample recipe from Marley Spoon and
everything needed to make the meal. It
arrived in perfect condition, everything was well packaged and nothing was
spilt or broken.
It’s so convenient just having
everything arrive to your doorstep, no having to head to the shops for
ingredients or wondering what on earth to cook for dinner! The inspiration is there on the site, every
week the Marley Spoon chefs make seven mouth-watering recipes and you can pick
and choose the ones you would like to re-create at home.

stages and it was surprisingly easy to produce a tasty meal. It helped having everything to hand, the

shopping done for you! I also like the
flexibility of the subscription you can pause at anytime (great if you are off
on holiday) and you can also skip a week if nothing takes your fancy (although
this is unlikely with the excellent choice of meat, fish and veggie options).
