When Relish.com contacted me and asked me to review them and post a giveaway on my site I thought, why in the world would someone pay for this service. They told me they were a meal planning service I didn’t understand that they also have are a grocery list maker. You can pick meals and then create a grocery list. Well, I can do that.
It is the Simple-ness that is involved and the speed of the list creation and the fact that you can change your mind and pick something else. You’ll find a whole lot to choose from including freezer meals, vegetarian menus, super-quick and slow cooker recipes. And you’ll find tons of kid’s friendly meals.
For subscriptions at $7 a month, you’ll end up with five complete dinners for a family of four running you less than $95. Between the money savings and the anxiety savings, you’re coming out way ahead. Can you put a price on the time you will save? 7.00 a month is not very much. Can you give up Two Lattes? Or one and a half?
How It Works:
Once a week depending on which day you sign up, you will receive an email from RELISH! with a quick link back to the site where you can choose the dinners you’d like to prepare. Simply download your week’s menu, recipes and easy-to-follow shopping list. You do NOT need an email to access the site. Just log in anytime.
Each week choose up to 5 items you’d like to make for the week plus a dessert. When you have a menu that you want to make again, put it into your Favorites Folder and you can have it any week, just put in into the weekly menu and it will go into your grocery list.
We offer monthly freezer meals to help supplement the weekly menus. Go to the freezer tab, choose your menus, shop and come home and cook for a couple of hours. You’ll have great meals always on hand. And, they provide the freezing labels too. You can also add recipes you’d like to prepare again in your favorites folder.
Enter Your Own Recipes:
If you like to enter some personal recipes into the Relish! system and enjoy them any time. Simply go to the My Recipes tab and you can enter your recipes. Allow 5-7 days for the recipe to be formatted and placed in your favorites folder. Remember, the ingredients for your recipes will go into your grocery list, that’s the best part.
Creating the grocery list is the best part. I like to create meals and cook but sometimes when I’m going down the ingredient list in the cookbook something gets forgotten. I also enjoyed how the lists were organized. My lists are never organized. I do think this service is worth paying for if you have a little extra money to help you save time.
