In the March edition of the club, we’re taking kids on a road trip across the US . . . through food. Young chefs can learn about the egg cream from New York, and use the special egg-cream spoon to mix it up. They can bake a key lime pie from Florida and juice their limes with the citrus reamer. Kids can whip up breakfast tacos like you’d find in Texas, make slow-roasted salmon from the Pacific Northwest, and cook Chicago, Illinois’s iconic deep-dish pizza.
Order by February 27th to get this box!
Q: Is this box vegetarian Asked by Radhika P., October 2020
If you join the club in October your first box will include 5 recipes in the Spices box. Of the 5 recipes 4 of them are vegetarian friendly including: Chana Masala, Spice-Roasted Carrots, Spice Cake, and Sprinkling Spices. The Chicken Fajitas recipe could be adapted for non-meat eaters.
Q: Does this box come with ingredients for the the recipesAsked by Radhika P., October 2020
Boxes do not come with ingredients for the recipes, but include a useful tool and/or ingredient (spice blend, sprinkles etc.) each month.
This was fun and exactly as described in the listing. We received a list of kid-friendly recipes all focused on making various types of pizza. I was very happy this box included cooking activities that did not just involve baking sweets (although I know they will have that too in a future shipment). There was also a game for the kiddos, stickers, a utensil needed to make everything, and shopping list. Our kids loved the shopping list and took it with them through the store to make sure they got all of their ingredients to make their chosen recipe. My kids stayed engaged through the experience and enjoyed the various aspects (choosing the recipe, going to the store to shop for the ingredients, and then putting it all together!). Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to make all aspects of cooking fun with kids.
Thank you! We are excited to hear about your positive experience!
Initial gift was very late due to the holiday delays, but I have reached out to seller twice and never received a response. Then I discovered I was charged for the second shipment that was not sent and I did not want sent. After waiting a week I contacted Cratejoy support directly to escalate, being very clear that I wanted a refund, but within an hour received shipment notifications and my support ticket was marked resolved. Response time was greatly improved but clearly they did not read my messages properly.
Not at all what I thought it would be
