Every order is a custom order, so menu changes and ingredient substitutions are no problem. In a 20 minute telephone interview, I will learn the foods you love, and what you’d like to avoid. I’ll ask about spices, vegetables, grains, meat, fish, etc. to learn exactly what you’d like.

You will receive a proposed menu for your review. If you would like any changes to the menu, I will suggest alternative dishes. Once the menu is agreed upon, I will prepare the meals in my licensed kitchen and deliver them directly to your home or office. The meals are packaged in oven and microwave safe containers, and labeled with instructions for reheating. All you need to do is heat the meal in the microwave or oven, and enjoy!!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

My standard delivery is $425, and would last two adults 10 nights. The same package would last a single adult 20 nights. (single serving packaging is an additional $20 charge). I provide generous servings.

What if I have more than 2 adults in my family?

For larger families, I can prepare additional servings for $125 per person. For example, if you have 3 adults in your family, the total would be $550, and I would provide 30 servings (6 servings of each entrée and side dish) instead of 20. If you have 4 adults, the total would be $675, and I would provide 40 servings (8 servings of each entrée and side dish).

What is the packaging like?

I use very nice containers that are microwave and oven safe. They’re made of paper and can be recycled. For large families, I use foil pans. Soups are delivered in plastic deli containers.

Can you accommodate special diets?

Absolutely! There is no additional charge for most diets such as low-fat, low-carb, low-sodium, Weight Watcher’s, etc. Very specialized diets such as gluten free and renal diets may incur an additional fee to cover additional menu planning time.

Can you prepare my meals with organic ingredients?

For organic clients, I follow a different pricing format, as the cost of ingredients is higher than conventional ingredients. I charge a flat rate of $360 for labor and packaging. The costs of ingredients are billed separately.

Can you provide the nutritional information?

My recipe software calculates the nutritional content of each dish, so it’s no problem to share this information.

How much freezer space will I need?

The standard service (in 2 serving containers) takes from ½ to 2/3 of the space in a normal freezer. If you will be having your meals packaged individually, a bit more space is needed.

Do you have gift certificates?

Yes. They make great gifts for new moms, new couples, people recovering from surgery at home, etc. You can purchase gift certificates through my website.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes, I accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Venmo.
