Happy 2017! We hope you have all recovered from your first hangover of the year.
New years are all about trying new things. If baking happens to be one of those things for you, then we might have a way for you to easily get started!
Now you have all probably heard of popular food box subscriptions such as Plated and Blue Apron. These are companies that ship fresh, pre-measured ingredients to your house along with a step by step instructional guide to create a meal. However, did you know that there are companies just like this that send you baking ingredients?!?!?!? We had no idea. We must crawl out from under this rock where we live.
But it is life changing.
We were recently sent one of these baking boxes from a company called Whisk & Flour. For $28 a month, you can receive new recipes and ingredients each month that includes a super cute reusable cloth bag and the occasional complimentary baking tool.
Disclaimer: We are not being paid to talk about this product. We were simply sent the box to try and loved it so much we want to share it with all of you! We have tried other baking boxes in the past. They just weren’t that great. The instructions were confusing and hard to follow, and the process just didn’t go well. The dessert looked nothing like the picture. At all. However, when we tried this box we were blown away.
First off, the packaging. It is so fricken cute. Everything comes all neat and packaged in a box. Inside that box is a cute cloth bag, and inside that bag is all the good stuff. If you are anything like us, packaging alone is very important. Good presentation can make or break a company or product. If we open a box and say “awwwwwwwwwwww”, then we know the packaging is spot on.
This month’s recipe was for cherry pistachio biscotti. We have never made biscotti before, so this was extra exciting. We learned how to make something new! and it actually worked!
The step by step guide was so easy to follow and the fact that all the ingredients are pre-measured and just have to be dumped in is a real win. Sidenote: All the little packages of ingredients have cute little puns on them. Stop. Just stop. Too cute. It is also very exciting getting a box each month and not knowing what you’re going to be making. It’s a surprise and it’s fun! It’s like a present delivered to your house once a month.
Here is a link to their website if you want to check them out for yourself! Even if you don’t want to commit to a monthly subscription we recommend that you at least try out one box!
