HOW IT WORKS:

This is a personalized service based entirely around your schedule and needs. Whether you are following a specific diet, want to eat healthier, or just want delicious, home cooked meals, I make each menu completely customized to your needs and wants, as well as any dietary restrictions and allergies. You are given at least a week to approve my sample menu(s) for the following week, I encourage changes and requests! I also do all of the food shopping and cleanup. You can always expect your kitchen to be left cleaner than how I found it!

Every menu item is made to be stored and reheated, ideally in glass containers that are oven/dishwasher/freezer safe. My goal is to make foods that not only you and your family will enjoy, but meals that can be reheated well without affecting the integrity of the dish. All meals are labeled with specific heating instructions.

If you are a busy parent, a hard-working professional, or simply just don't have the time to cook, this service is for you!
