Relish! Review and $50 Crate & Barrel Gift Card Giveaway *CLOSED*



Relish! if you don't know is a website that helps you plan your meals for the week.  They provide recipes that they update every Thursday.  You go and choose from the list of recipes for 5 dinners for the next week.  This still lets you eat out or choose their freezer recipes or even their dinner and movie options!  The intent is to help you plan your meals quick and easy, while still giving you the selection that you would come up with over hours of trying to figure out new and innovative meal ideas!  So you get fresh meal ideas and they provide dinners with a side that will cost less than $90 for the 5 dinners (and that doesn't even consider sales for the week).

Want to try Relish! for 2 weeks!!  Why not?  Well head over there and enter the code "dealdaddy" and you can have a 2 week free trial!  And by signing up for the FREE trial you get an extra entry in the giveaway!

We have been playing with Relish! for about 3 weeks now and have even had weeks that it costs less than $60 for the 5 dinners!  Some things we have tried:  Meatballs with a Cranberry Sauce, Thai Noodle Salad, BBQ Cheddar Burgers with Avocado Spread.  My favorite so far ended up being the Thai Noodle Salad, which is surprising because I don't like noodles a whole lot.

Using Relish! is simple and easy to use.  Just add what you want, print your grocery list, then cook away!

My wife has really enjoyed Relish! because she is no longer spending hours on end searching for recipes for the week, and we would end up with 1-2 of the usual too so that she could be done and finally go grocery shopping!



Also, if you are gluten intolerant head on over to the Relish! sister site GFree!

Do you have a iPhone/iTouch/iPad?  Why not download the free Relish! app?  Download it free at iTunes NOW!  So I downloaded it on to an iTouch and having been on the website I knew how it works and it is really nice.  I think I might like it better, just because you make your choices and have your list without having to be at your computer, or needing a printer!  The only thing  I didn't see that I would like to see is the dinner and movie or healthy lunches sections.

This giveaway was selected as a Prizey Editors' Pick!!!

i learned this and it's great-

The recipes can scale from 2, 4, 6 or 8. And the grocery list is translated to the smaller portions too.

For starters, I love the it has an iPhone app that my hubby could use. I like the idea of having help planning a menu. The planning part is what I hate most when I'm making a grocery list. That process takes me at least an hour every other week; this would save a lot of that time for me.

MelissaStuff said...

I love that it helps make your grocery list for you. I always seem to forget to put something I need on the list.

MOMFOREVERANDEVER said...

LIKE the fact I can make it for just the amount I want- ot for 20 people- or a large family

Rebecca Graham said...

I like that the meal planning grocery lists will cut down on my grocery bill.

I like that they "...even offer comprehensive freezer meals". This would be great for days when I am running around and don't have time to prepare a dinner.

I love the automatic grocery list. I also love just the concept of a meal schedule...anything that streamlines life with two little kids and two working parents = GOOD!

The printed shopping list alone would be a great help - I never remember to make a list for the week's meals.

clc408 said...

I like that you can customize menus to suit your family's taste.

imin2fun81 said...

I like the Your Weekly Menu Planner feature. I find it hard to plan meals for a week.

Christina Hidek said...

Inlike how the grocery list is organized. I *try* to do that. but I don't always, which leads to much back trackng in the store.

Jennae said...

Always love having an iPhone app, and I really like the organization of the shopping list. I never stick to mine, and hopefully this could help me with that problem. Email: jennae {at} greenyourdecor.com

Simplification plus SAVINGS with a spot on grocery list. Now that is a PLUS!

I love that they provide a grocery list with everything you need. I write lists every time I go to the store but I usually forgot to put half of what I need on the list!
