Chef Barb is a delightful energetic, and most of all, a very flexible professional. She easily made variations to her suggested menus to fit our vegan lifestyle. Our freezer is now stocked with delicious meals . We choose one to defrost during the day and it's waiting for us when we arrive home after a tiresome commute. It's wonderful to save time by not having to prepare a meal, and great to save money by not eating expensive and less healthy take out.

Rhonda and Jake are fabulous. The food they prepared from appetizer all the way to desert was delicious and very high quality. Jake is an amazing chef. They where on time, great service and cleaned up everything when finished. I will for sure call them again for our next event.

We did a small remodel in preparation to sell our house. We hired Linda to clean it before it went on the market. She and Will did a fantastic job. They spent about 5 hours and cleaned it top to bottom. Linda even cleaned out our window wells! That was a great surprise as it is not our favorite job. Linda is prompt & professional and the price was very reasonable. Thanks Linda!

Chef Bob exceeded our expectations on our 40th Birthday Couples weekend celebration in Boulder. Prior to our arrival Bob was in contact with us regarding any questions and guided us on our menu selection. Bob even visited our VRBO prior to our visit to scope out the kitchen and cooking tools. To our surprise, the kitchen was smaller down! Now for the food! It completely exceeded our expectations. The lettuce wraps and polenta pizatta appetizers were an excellent, savory start. This was followed by mouth watering main dishes: mango bbq ribs, vietanemse chicken, and tuna with portobella, kale salad and mango slaw. We highly reccommend each as it was all done simply and professionally. For dessert than expected and Bob made the best of it. One would have never known a kitchenette and very limited cooking utensils were available to Bob. We were looking forward to a great, relaxing dining for a reasonable price. Bob was our answer. He came to our house, set up, and checked in as needed with all the guests regarding preferences for setup and the entire meal. His presence was just right and not overbearing. It was much appreciated as it allowed us, friends, to visit with each other and chow Bob made a lemon saffron pie. Yum! We wouldn't have changed a thing. Chef Bob is the real deal. We look forward to returning to the area and enjoying another memorable meal prepared and served by Chef Bob.

Grant catered my Mother's memorial service at our home August 9th. We wanted a specific menu and he created everything we wanted...even my Mom's Chinese Egg rolls! The food was delicious! Grant and his assistant allowed us all to relax and enjoy family and friends. They were amazing to work with and very considerate of our situation. It was such a treat to have everything professionally taken care of, a clean kichen afterwards and leftovers for the evening. I would use Grant again in a heartbeat!

Molly came to my home to prepare a birthday dinner for my family. The food was amazing and Molly was a pleasure to have in my home. Molly was ready to create the meal of my dreams, inquiring about likes/dislikes, allergies, etc...For me, the meal of my dreams is not having to plan or cook! So, I asked Molly to come up with the menu. She created a 3 course meal consisting of a salad, main dish and dessert. Based on the taste and presentation of the food, it is clear that Molly loves what she does. The added bonus was she left my kitchen cleaner than when she arrived. I look forward to using her service again in the future. Excellent way to treat yourself to something unique and special.

Busy Cooking Mama has been a life saver for our family! We are the typical busy family going ten different directions. I always intended to cook a weeks worth of meals and prepare the meals in advance. Guess what? That never happened. I ended up ordering out or throwing together unhealthy meals. Plus, we were wasting a ton of food. That is why I went on the search for help. Ginny's meals taste excellent and are healthy. My 6 year old loves the food which says a lot since he is a picky eater. We do 5 dinners per week. Usually two of which are froze. Ginny is very good about adjusting the meal plan to meet our needs. I can't speak highly enough about Ginny and the meals she prepares. She has taken a huge stress factor off my shoulders by making dinner easy. I have time to sit down with my family and enjoy an outstanding meal instead of fret about what to make.

Chuck created a lovely dinner for us during our math conference in July. It was pouring rain, but under the cover of the tent at the Alumni Center we enjoyed tasty appetizers and Sangria, a meal of fresh vegetables and fruit from the local markets and meat from the local farms. The dessert was light and served with a festive flair. Our guests were treated to an exceptional dinner. Some caterers may ask you to chose from their menu of items-Chuck asked me what kind of people we were and what we enjoyed eating. What a novel idea-and certainly one that works!

I have nothing but the highest praise for Carol and her cooking! She has been preparing meals for my grandmother for over a year, and the benefit to her has been enormous -- has allowed her to maintain her independent lifestyle (at 96!), and the gluten-free whole foods diet that Carol provides has had a positive impact on her digestion and overall health. Carol tailors her meals to my grandmother's tastes and numerous dietary restrictions, and always has something new and creative to offer. She goes above and beyond with her kindness and caring -- making sure my Grandmother is stocked on essentials and fresh produce, and communicating back to me any and all concerns regarding my grandmother's diet and health. Carol is quite literally a lifesaver!

Kat was my personal yoga instructor and chef for almost a year before her departure from Milwaukee to Colorado. Let me say first, there is not a day that goes by without me missing her services. Kat is kind, compassionate and incredibly talented. Her yoga services allowed me as a true beginner to enjoy and feel the benefits of yoga. She was patient with me and a great teacher of positions that allowed my body to stretch and release. I am a stage two diabetic and the yoga had a profound effect upon my condition for the good. After learning that Kat had head chef talents, I asked her to come twice a week to my home and prepare meals for myself and my son. The meal plans were excellent and the food, well, there are few fine restaurants that could compete. Kat was very fair with the economics of the work as well. It made for pleasant meals when coming home from work. My son continues to ask where is she and can she come back to Milwaukee for a time to come and prepare food. It is critical in any review that one have trust, confidence and successful communication. Kat gets an A+ from me in all regards. You will be lucky and fortunate to have here skills. My suggestion is do not hesitate. We enjoyed her immensely and miss her yoga and cooking talents. Thanks for listening.

A delirious delectable deluge of delightful dimensions. Debbie does (home) dining like no one else! She is aware of a wide-range of palettes, cooking styles and menus. She listens carefully for your preferences. Her delivery not only means an exceptional meal is at hand, but likely lively conversation and some chuckles will be your primo piatto!

I am a single woman working a busy, full time job. I had surgery a year ago and hired Barb Combs of Barb's Bistro to cook meals for me during my recovery period. She came to my house, did the shopping, made the meals, and cleaned everything so that I could not even tell she had been there. However, the neatly stacked containers of labeled, healthy, delicious meals in my freezer let me know that she had indeed been in my kitchen cooking up pork, fish, pasta, vegetables, rice, chicken etc. I loved every single meal she made, and all I had to do was heat things up to have a delicious, healthy meal ready for me! I would recommend Barb Combs of Barb's Bistro to anyone. If you are a busy career person, a new mom with a baby (or babies) to care for, are recovering from a procedure, or just do not like to cook, then Barb Combs is the chef for you! Oh, and did I mention she will cater to your tastes and any special dietary requests? Awesome!

Spencer has catered 2 parties in our home. One a smaller meal for 12, and then a party for 50. He is super easy to work with, had great ideas for menu planning and dishes and the food was fabulous. Plus we had some gluten and dairy restrictions and he was able to easily accommodate that. We got so many compliments. We consider him now our default caterer and will call him for any future events.
