I am two days into the meal plan containing lunches, snacks and dinners, so far the food is delicious. The kids even enjoy the meals! They have been continually asking me what is next. I was sent a quote with an individualized meal plan. Once I approved the meals they were made and delivered to my home. I am using this service as an ADHD parent it helps me to stay on track and also as a spring board for weight loss. Eating healthy is great for both myself and the kids. Opening up their minds to different foods has been fun.

Chef David is everything you would want in a personal chef and more. From the initial discussions surrounding planning of the event, to the final pull through of the event, everything was perfect. Chef David put together a well thought out menu for 11 guests for my Girlfriends surprise birthday dinner party. Each part of the meal was better than the previous and was topped off with an excellent desert choice. Needless to say, Chef David is my go to choice for personal chef moving forward! Highly recommended for any person looking at his services!

Carol was fantastic! She worked with me to put together a birthday brunch to remember for my mother in law, our family and friends. Carol was super helpful in creating a brunch menu with so many delicious options, including several dishes that were Keto friendly. The food was out of this world, everyone just raved about the meal and the service! I would DEFINITELY work with her again.

Eco Cleaning Services did an excellent job cleaning my 5000 square foot home.... All the 4 bathrooms, floors, kitchen, 5 bedrooms, office, dining rooms and living rooms were detailed, dusted and cleaned very well. I had guests stay over the weekend and even they commented on how clean my home was. Jeremiah, the owner, and his crew were very professional and attentive to my requests. I would highly recommend them as a very good cleaning service.

We hired Tracy to provide two dinners per week. I decided to let her "surprise" us with each meal. To say the least we have been more than pleasantly surprised with the quality, creativity, and heart that goes into every meal. Hiring Tracy has made meal time less stressful - best thing we ever did!

Kristin is the best caterer! We connected about 3 weeks before my Housewarming party for 40 guests. Not only was she able to hire a bartender and server, she also supplied a bartender table! She worked with me to make an absolutely delicious meal (Southern/Cajun) and her signature charcuterie board is a true show-stopper! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Will definitely plan to use her for all my catering needs.

Hired Chef Frank to cook a meal for my Mom as a birthday present. First experience with something like this. She enjoyed the preparation in her kitchen and said the meal was good. My parents are diabetic so the menu was zuchini noodles in a tomato based sauce, chicken vesuvio (not spicy), and roasted cauliflower. They both liked it and it was fun to know they were doing something new even at 74!

I wanted to have a simple afternoon party without the formality of a sit-down meal, and Diana fit the bill perfectly. She made sure there was plenty of food and variety, including appetizers, lasagna and sweets trays. Many people complimented me on the food, and it was a great success. Best of all, I didn't have to prepare any food, so I was free to enjoy my own party! I've already given out her information to guests who asked.

I’m a lawyer finishing my MBA, planning my wedding and trying to kickstart my weight loss. I wasn’t sure where to start, but Mark gave me the step by step support I needed. In two weeks, I lost 7 pounds with a combination of his coaching, nutrition, and meal prep services. I'm so glad I found him - Thanks Mark!

Rebecca is a master chef. Simple as that. I booked Puffs of Doom for an anniversary dinner (with two small kids, it's hard to get out on a week night). We collaborated on a menu that met my price point and that was just the start. She came in, cooked in our kitchen and set down a meal that was as good if not better than what you would get at an upscale restaurant. It was flavorful and unique while still fitting our requests. She and her partner were immaculate in cleaning and keeping the kitchen orderly throughout the preparation and serving process. They even went so far as to box up our leftovers in our tupperware. For a private dining or catering experience, I would highly recommend Puffs of Doom. Simply an amazing experience.

We used J's for a block party and he was great. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, he soldiered on and gave us an amazing meal. The tacos (steak, chicken and pork) were delicious!!! Everyone loved it. I would definitely recommend J's for any of your catering needs.

Dillion, By the Graham, helped me formulate this dinner from the get go; from the concept, the menu, and finally the food itself. I was hosting a dinner party for some friends, an annual thing we do. This one was special. A couple in our group were going to be moving to another country and I wanted their last dinner part to be something grand. I called Dillion, upon getting a recommendation from another friend. He was extremely professional and helpful with any questions and concerns I had throughout the process. He suggested food pairings and how best to plate. Let's not forget the food, the meal was excellent. He came to my home promptly and set to work. As I was preparing the house for my guests I would at times stop, just amazed at the aromas coming from the kitchen. My anticipation was rising. As my guests arrived, they too commented on smells of food cooking, certainly better than anything I've ever made they commented, and they hadn't even eaten anything yet! When we sat down to the table, Dillion brought out the food. He explained each dish answered questions from the table. The first bite was perfect. The steak, perfectly pink in the center, the sauce tingled with a slight sweetness, the two mixed into a melody of flavor. The rest of the meal followed suit. Afterwards my friends stated it was the best dinner party I had ever hosted. My friends who moved, they still talk about the food, not so much the game I set out to play. Dillion was excellent and I will be hiring him for the next dinner party since he was such a hit. I can't recommend him more!

Kristi is thorough from A to Z. She interviews her clients for special tastes and needs. We have a diabetic in our family and Kristi is always keenly aware of our needs when she shops for and prepares our meals. From the very beginning--when she first interviewed us--we got the feeling that she really cares for her clients' special needs and tries her best to cater not only to us but also to our children. Kristi is very professional in her approach to our special diet needs and does an outstanding job at preparing healthful and satisfying meals for our family. Kristi has enthusiasm for the work she does; she truly loves to cook and please peoples' palates. We have a very busy lifestyle and don't have the time to shop for ingredients and cook meals that are both nutritious and tasty. Thanks to you, Kristi, we can enjoy good, nutritious meals right here in our own home at reasonable costs.

Susan could not be more accommodating or pleasant. She asked copious amounts of questions to find out my food preferences and issues. She came to meet me on the first delivery and brought hot food ready for that nights meal. Of the food I've had so far, delicious. This is someone to high for all kinda of food needs.

    Kat's flare for food is amazing. She uses her culinary skills to make food that is not only full of nutritional value but also takes into consideration any food allergies you might have. She goes above and beyond to create wonderful meals!

    Nicole was such a great “find” on this app. She gave me a cooking lesson at my home and shared tons of wisdom and great ideas for bulk meal prep. I’m hoping to hire her again in the future. Thanks, Nicole!!
