Coming Soon...Simply Cook

I've been looking at subscription boxes for some time now - seeing what is out there and wondering if they are something I need to sign up for.  I'm already a Graze subscriber - who doesn't like amazing snacks delivered right to your door?!  (click here for a free trial box!)

Anyhoot...after delving into the world of amazing products being pushed through your letterbox I found Simply Food.

Basically you get 4 packs of measured spices and seasonings and recipe cards - all you need to do is add the fresh ingredients.  As someone who loves to try new foods and flavours this sounded like the perfect thing for me!  There are so many recipes out there I have wanted to try but some of the spices they call for are obscure, I didn't want to spend however much on an entire jar of something I might never use again so to have portioned spices for a specific recipe had me at "portioned for recipe"!

I've not yet tried any of the 4 recipes that come in the box but as I have a whole week off work next week I will definitely be trying all 4!

So who's in? Anyone want to give it a go?  As a member of Simply Food I can share a link which will let you have the first box free!  Click here to get signed up and ready to cook!

With Simply Food you receive 4 packages of portioned herbs, spices and seasonings.  You also receive recipe cards which tell you what is in the box, what fresh ingredients you might need ("shopping list"), things you will probably already have like vegetable oil and then anything extra you might want to add extra oomph to the dish.  There is also a tear off part of the recipe card that you can take to the supermarket to remind you what you need to buy.

As I said before, each box has a recipe card - this is how it's supposed to look (until someone like me gets their meddling hands on a recipe and tweaks it!)

See the portions!  Love it!

So unfortunately at this time I have no finished product results but I have a week of holiday booked off work next week so will be trying out all of the 4 recipes and spice packs I received without a doubt!

In the box I received I am now ready to cook:

  • Jambalaya 
  • Malay Chicken Laska
  • Pork & Chorizo Beans
  • Spaghetti Puttanesca

P.S. Simply Food haven't sponsored me to do this post, I just like to share lovely products when I find them!


  1. I love graze boxes... I also ordered a coffee subscription for Mum but she hated the coffee... that said, these things are super cheap for first orders so I'd give it a go again!

    I read about some in America where they deliver EVERYTHING for a meal with an original recipe - looked like fun!

  2. Except if you are managing a major bbq challenge - like Memphis In May BBQ Cooking Challenge - these challenges don't normally top off and they will accept applications as late as the prior week.Don’t Be Chicken-Barbecue Time

  3. Are the lids interchangeable? Some sets do not come with a lid for every pot or pan but make sure there is a lid that covers every pot or pan. stainless steel cookware

  4. Healthy consuming and healthy cooking may as breakfast ideas well go together when we need to accomplish satisfaction and keep our forms fit as a fiddle.

  5. Another advantage of cookbooks is that they offer you more than just recipes. tractor at home
