Thank you for saving dinner! I was at the end of my rope for meal planning and cooking for a household that included two carnivores, two vegetarians and one flexitarian. I was dedicating almost my entire Sunday to meal prepping and becoming increasingly frustrated when my efforts didn’t hit the mark. Working with you relieved the stress around meals and gave me back my Sundays. You introduced us to new flavors and dishes and helped us identify areas of common ground. Thank you for the delicious and relaxing dinner time memories!

Seasonal, worldly, and comforting. Family food that you can feel good about.

All recipes are approved by my own kids. I’ll work with you to create meals that work for you and your kids, ’cause ain’t nobody got time for kid-only meals.


We started with the curry last night. My daughter, who hates red sauce on pizza because it’s “spicy,” tried it, said she liked it, and this morning asked if she could have more tonight.

And we all ate the same dinner at the same time. This sounds simplistic but of course it’s really a meaningful milestone for our family.
