Don’t you just hate when you have to think what to cook everyday? Well I do, I try to stick to a schedule but it doesn’t always work out. Every time I ask my husband what to cook, he has no idea but he’s ready to eat before dinner is ready.
I’m always looking for an easy way out and if someone can deliver ingredients to me every week with a written recipe, I will accept it with open arms and YES, that’s exactly what I did when I learnt about Daily Dish.
I was in amazed when I read reviews about this brand, I knew it’s a service I would appreciate as a mom.
What is Daily Dish?
It’s an online service providing freshly packaged ingredients and recipes to people who want to try something different or to ordinary home cooks who are keen to make quick, tasty meals every day.
Online shopping is growing rapidly worldwide, you can now do your grocery shopping on your favorite stores website (Crazy right?!) but what’s even better is knowing you can choose the meals you want to create.
What makes Daily Dish so unique?
I used to do month end shopping around the 25/30th. I always preferred going into the store.
1. It was an absolute nightmare; 50 other moms were thinking exactly like me, shopping as soon as they received their paycheck.
2. Shopping with a frustrated toddler who missed nap time can be dreadful. Sometimes she would do her own shopping at the store. (Kitana adds items into the trolley including castor oil).
3. I used to buy random items and some would expire because I never had the opportunity to cook with it or I couldn’t think of a recipe in time.
I recently started shopping weekly. It is easier but it can be very confusing. I spend a lot of my time on the internet trying to find recipes.
Daily Dish gives you the opportunity to be a master chef in your own kitchen. You get to try different cuisines and recipes daily.
They offer 3 different options:
1. Classic Menu (I reviewed this).
2. Low Carb Menu
3. Vegetarian Menu
The website is easy to navigate with detailed information which includes the meals for the week and pricing. You can choose a 4 or 2 portion meal size. You can even pause/resume when you feel like.
The Classic Menu:
|R850 per week
|R590 per week
|Only R53 per person, per meal.
|Only R74 per person, per meal.
I received the ingredients on a monday as promised with 4 recipes. To be honest, I was nervous. I’m not a good cook but I love experimenting.
Each recipe gives you clear instructions on how to create the dish. It wasn’t difficult at all. I never thought I would be able to pull it off but I did, AND it made me feel so good about myself.
The dish I didn’t enjoy: Chicken Burger with Harissa Mayo, I think I made it a bit too sour.
The dish I loved: Bacon and Spinach Quiché. I never ate or made Quiché before but I felt it was the easiest recipe for me.
What can improve: It would be interesting if some ‘experienced cooks’ could submit their recipes to the brand. I would love to see more of our South African cuisine especially the Durban style curry ;).
The Kima beef curry and rice which I prepared wasn’t the curry I’m used too, the cooking method was totally different from my moms but it was good. I even had leftovers for the next day which we had for lunch.
I absolutely love this service and would recommend it to any mom. This is perfect for at least once a month – a week of flavors which will definitely take you on a food journey. You can visit www.dailydish.co.za for more info.
