Updated Thoughts On Hello Fresh

Fish curry bowl

Back in February I decided it was time to try and make life a little bit easier by giving Hello Fresh a try. My hope was that it would take away the need to think up meals off the top of my head, write down a shopping list and then go and get those ingredients; […]

First Thoughts On Hello Fresh

Light yellow creamy curry with fish, butternut squash and herbs sticking out of the top

The Sunday I had arranged for my box to get delivered I was ridiculously excited about it and was so happy when the text and email came through to let me know the hour slot that the driver was likely to arrive in. It resulted in a few quick messages between my friend and I, […]
