Maria has been cooking for our family for several months now and it has truly changed our life. My husband and I run our own businesses and have a one year old girl and a boy on the way and we always found that eating healthy was a challenge with our busy schedule. Maria helps in every way to make our lives easier and more enjoyable. She does the grocery shopping, meal planning, prepping and cooking as well as kitchen clean-up and organization. We started our service with her doing a mix of Paleo and Whole30 and are astounded by her attention to detail, care for the diet and love of her job. It is obvious that she is proud of being a chef and it shines through in everything she does. Maria is not only a joy to be around but the meals she prepares are always delicious and well-prepared. One thing we love about Maria that we found a challenge with other chefs in the past was the acceptance of feedback and willingness to change menus on the spot based on preference for that week. We are so happy to have found Maria and couldn't speak more highly of her.

I hired Maria to come into my home and cook breakfast for my then girlfriend and her best friend. This was the beginning of a entire day of surprises I had planned for her as I planned to propose to her later that night. Maria was so helpful and pleasant to work with. She helped me decide what to have on the menu,keep it a surprise and even called me with an update during. Maria arrived on time, in full chef attire and fully prepared to whip up an amazing tasting breakfast for my now fiancé and her friend. My fiancé raved about how delicious the food was. She cooked them stuffed French toast, omeletes, hash browns, bacon, fruit salad and even brought them a pitcher of mimosas. Not only was the food delicious but the entire presentation was perfect. Maria brought her own table clothes, plates, glasses and flowers as a center piece. Maria cleaned my counter tops and left my fiancé with such a amazing experience. I wish I could give 10 stars because she deserves it. She delivered such a premium service at a extremely honest price. I can not wait for the next occasion in which I can use Maria again.
