What others are saying!

“I hired Melissa to cook for me and my family last week and it was a fantastic experience.
I had outpatient surgery on Monday, and wanted to make sure that my husband and son would be eating well for the entire week. If left to husband it would be pizza and take-out every night!
Melissa put together an amazing menu with lots of variety and and tastes. BUT the most impressive thing she did was to plan the menus based on promoting healing. This was totally a bonus as I was only thinking about keeping my family covered during the week.
I am now one week post surgery, and my doctor commented on how well I am doing. The nutritional component of my healing is obvious. The food was delicious, and next time I hire her it will be for some fun event  in my life.”
