Food, life, comfort, nurturing, love, warmth, sharing, special moments—this is what my personal chef service is all about.  I’m here so you can experience those things for yourself and your family—for life!

You’re busy—making all kinds of things happen in the world for your self,  work, family and friends, the community, the world.  You’re living your values and your passion and at dinner you want to nourish yourself in alignment with those same values.  You want yummy, nutritious, interesting, healthy food that’s fun to eat.  You want to relax, enjoy the time with your family, your friends, and your home.

The last thing you want to do is think up something for dinner, look for ingredients, and make a last minute dash to the store. Then you take an hour to prepare what you really want to have while being hungry and tired and perhaps surrounded by other hungry and tired people.

Or maybe you just want to relax so you go out to dinner—for the nth time this month!  Driving, parking, ordering, waiting, maybe it’s crowded, then paying and driving home.  Relaxing at first, the nth time it’s just a way to eat decent food because cooking is not what you want to do.

Let’s talk today about how For Life! Personal Chef Services can help you have those special dinners easily—every night!  We’ll work together so that you will love the food I prepare for you—I want to know what you like, what you don’t, what works for your health and what doesn’t.

The Warmhearted Meals

I’ll come to your house on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly schedule and spend the day shopping for and cooking a menu of your choosing.  Imagine coming home from a busy day at work and NOT rushing around at the last minute figuring out what to eat…  Just think of all the things you will do with that saved time!

Our first meeting will be about what your needs are, your preferences, and your meal portion sizes. I generally prepare a certain number of dinner meals which include an entree and one or two accompanying side dishes. You can also order additional appetizers, desserts, extra meals such as items to take for lunch or breakfast on the go. The number of servings per meal depends entirely on your needs.

I charge $50 an hour for my services which include planning, shopping, cooking and packaging. The first week also has a one-time cost of $40 for special packaging designed to make everything go smoothly for you at each meal time.
