REVIEW // SIMPLY COOK MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION BOX

Although beauty boxes began the trend, it seems there's a monthly subscription box for everything these days. Recently I've heard about craft boxes, sweet treat boxes and even a box called 'Mantry' (I absolutely love the name) which is aimed at men! There's not really been a box I've felt worthy of subscribing to so far though as some can be quite pricey and I've not really seen the point in wasting money on something I won't use.

But when I came across Simply Cook, I changed my mind. I'm not a great cook, EVERYONE knows that. I mean sure, I can make basic things like pasta dishes or beans on toast but that's where my culinary skills end. I don't think I'll ever be the type of person who can look in the fridge, see a bunch of random ingredients and just throw something together.

But Simply Cook caught my eye because it offers such a wide variety of food. I like how I can use it do discover new recipes from different cultures and none of it is typical dishes we all know how to make anyway, or things that many people are familiar with but just have a new twist on them. It's a great way to not only widen your food choices but to improve your cooking skills too. It really does offer food from all around the world.

The box basically contains enough for a meal a week and includes three ingredients for each recipe, more so the spices or sauces for each. So you have to provide the basics or the fresh food like the chicken or beef or whatever, although I've found so far that when purchasing the additional ingredients of each recipe, it's never cost me much more then £5ish.

Most recipe cards state that the portions are for two people, but I've managed to cook for myself and my parents on these. The recipe cards are super cute too and I absolutely adore how you can rip off the ingredient list at the bottom of each and just pop it in your purse! It's actually really cheap too at only £10 a month with free shipping which I think is more then worth it considering how many meals you get out of it.

However you can get your first box half price using my referral URL here, and once you've received one box, you can then go on to choose what you want your next box to include. So if you're feeling stumped about what to cook or maybe you're just a beginner like me, you should try Simply Cook.

It really has helped me improve my cooking skills and has helped me actually want to learn to cook new things. I've definitely become more confident in the kitchen after subscribing to this!

What do you think? Are you a novice at cooking? Do you think a monthly subscription box like Simply Cook could help you? Let me know!
