Tired of trying to fit in food prep? Disappointed in restaurant options?

(See my new website)

This is a great option for busy households. It can cost less per meal than most restaurant meals depending on your menu choices, and I will customize a menu according to your dietary needs. 

How in house personal chef services Work:

(740) 370-6347

We sit down together and you tell me you and your family’s likes, dislikes, allergies, and other special dietary needs. With your help, I plan a dinner menu for a month. If you are on a special diet, I will need your doctor’s instructions. We then set a date for the initial cook date. On cooking day, I will shop for groceries and come to your home for 6 to 8 hours and prepare dinners for a month — 5 entrees and sides times 4. These will be kept in your freezer. The basic service costs $250 plus the cost of the groceries. I always clean up my mess!

Sample Breakdown Per Meal — Less Expensive Than Restaurants

This is just an example. Actual price per meal depends on your choice of menu options, number of people/servings, and cost of groceries at the time of service.

For example, if you have a family of 4, and groceries cost $200, add the $250 for service = $450. Divide that times the number of servings: 5 entrees times 4 weeks 20 meals times 4 people = 80. Divide $450 by 80 = $5.60 per serving. For 2 people it is $11.20 per meal.

Live Alone? Friends Can Share

Sometimes two families or 4 individuals who can agree on menu choices can purchase the service together to bring down the per serving cost.

Disclaimer – I don’t charge per serving costs. The above is just an example, and final cost depends on grocery costs and menu choices. This service is paid in advance.


  • Fresh baked bread in your kitchen (can be gluten free).
  • Fresh juices made from fresh raw produce.
  • A soup, dessert or salad for that day’s dinner.
  • Lunches

There is a one time container charge, unless you have suitable uniform containers I can use.

I am in the process of starting a food co-op. If you are interested in this, please message or call me.

The Healing Chef 

About My Experience

I’ve been cooking and baking since I was 8 years old. My mother – bless her heart – let me make horrible messes and experiments in her kitchen!

By the time I was 12, I had a reputation for inventing recipes. My aunt asked me to stay with her for a couple of weeks to develop some recipes for my cousin who had an ulcer. That was way before they knew that antibiotics can heal ulcers.  My aunt had instructions that required eliminating certain foods, and it was my job to figure out a way to make palatable food for my cousin!

When I was 18, I heard a guest on the Phil Donahue show say that the family cook had the power of life or death in her hands  — yes, he said “her.” Lol! And ever since, I have been fascinated by the power of food to prevent and heal disease.

I am not a formally trained chef, and I wear the chef “hat” lightly. I spent a good portion of 2016 working for an agency in Westerville Ohio that places people in kitchens. I learned from a wide variety of chefs, and I also discovered all of the non cooking tasks that chefs are responsible for. I am in awe of them after this experience. However, most of what I know about cooking and baking I learned on my own, experimenting in first my mother’s and then my own kitchen.
