Love With Food September 2014 Box Review

Last year, I received and reviewed the August and October 2013 Love With Food boxes.  I was underwhelmed with them and canceled my subscription.  Out of the blue, I received an e-mail from Love With Food offering me a free box.  I guess they are trying to win customers back?
