You may remember I found a discounted membership to Hamptons Lane a few months back (yes, I know- I’m the worst for posting this so late!). Since that time I’ve received two boxes from Hamptons Lane- Spanish Tapas and Summer Picnic.
The Spanish Tapas box was the first box I received. In the kit there was a Steel Paella Pan, a jar of Arbequina olives, sweet smoked paprika, imperial Spanish chorizo, and organic piquillo peppers. Three recipes were included- chorizo stuffed prosciutto wrapped dates, green olive tapenade, and paella mixta. I absolutely love paella and since I now have my own paella pan- we decided to try this recipe first. The pan fit an enormous amount of food in it! It seriously made paella for a large family- not a couple. Needless to say we had quite a few leftover meals that week.
The second box I received was the Summer Picnic box. I am actually pretty excited about this box since the weather is finally warm and I plan on spending as much time as possible outside this summer. Included in this box were Bee’s wrap, Honeypax raw honey to-go, Jan’s Farmhouse cranberry pistachio crisps, an olivewood & stainless steel knife, a genuine leather picnic knife sheath, and garlic dill mustard. Looks like the perfect start to a cheese board if I do say so myself! This curated kit came with 7 recipes- honey mint citrus salad, spicy honey hummus, egg salad tartine, turkey & brie sandwich, vegan veggie sandwich, tupelo honey mint lemonade, and kale & brussel sprout salad with mustard vinaigrette. I haven’t had the opportunity to make any of these yet but the tupelo honey mint lemonade sounds absolutely delicious!
Overall I have enjoyed receiving new kitchen additions from Hamptons Lane. The kit’s well organized and all follow their theme. I have to say my favorite additions have been the knife and paella pan. At around $50 per kit though I think I will be putting this subscription on hold and trying some new ones this summer. I felt that I could have found each of the food items in the box on my own and not have left over items Brian and I don’t really like (I’m looking at you, Olives).
Have you tried Hamptons Lane? What item in my kit are you looking forward to trying?
