Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
I charge $60 per hour and have a 4-hour minimum. You pay for my time plus groceries including the time for shopping (usually 30 minutes). Depending on the foods you need a 4.5-hour visit plus groceries could be from $325-$390.
How often do you come?
I can come as often or as little as you need. I can also be used for unexpected needs when someone is ill or needs just one or two visits. I can also prepare for a dinner party for you.
What do I get in a visit?
It depends on what you want. Most clients get 2 entrees, (meat or plant based) 4-5 portions with sides, soup 6-8 portions) and a hearty salad (think Kale and Quinoa) 8+ portions
Are there ways to make this more economical?
Yes, share my service with a friend. The more quantity of food does not greatly increase the amount of time spent preparing it. I had a 4-1/2 hour client team up with a friend and they each paid for 3 hours each plus groceries.
Can you accommodate my special diet: Gluten Free, Plant Based, Paleo, FODMAPS, Health Issues, and/or Allergies to many foods?
Absolutely! I am an expert in serving special diets! You tell me what you are cannot eat and I will create delicious foods from what you can. I can accommodate any diet needed.
Do you provide containers for the food?
I do not. My clients provide reusable containers for me to package the food in. Plastic or glass, as you prefer
Is there a commitment?
The simple answer is no. I can come to cook for you one time or on a regular basis. If you are not happy with my services then you are not obligated to continue.
How it Works
Due to Covid-19, I have changed the way I work. Once you contact me, we will set up an appointment to talk or zoom to discuss your needs. We will discuss what you like to eat, what you don’t eat, what your diet preferences, portioning, and your budget. We will make a date for me to start.
Meals Made Easy
I prepare the food, package it up as you desire (in large portions or individually), label it and deliver to you. If you already have containers you’d like me to use, I can pick them up and get clean ones when I deliver. If you are not home when I deliver we can make arrangements for where you’d like me to leave your food.
Most of my clients I visit every other week and they freeze some of the food and spread it out over 2 weeks. I can come to cook for you every week, once a month, or whatever you need. If you need adjustments of any kind, I am ready to work with you.
I charge $60 an hour, with a minimum of 4 hours. I charge for my time, including shopping (usually a half hour), cooking, plus the cost of groceries. Typically 4.5-5 hour would provide 15-18 meals depending on portions. I send you my bill with a copy of the receipt and I accept payments through Venmo.
I am here to serve you. I take my relationship with you very personally. As far as your food is concerned, or any dietary changes you need to make, I am here to help you! If you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them.
