We are not subscription based, like most of our competitors.  Therefore, we never lock our customers into any type of monthly or yearly contract.  Our customers are free to order whenever they want.

 

We are much more affordable

 

Most similar services deliver just a box of ingredients in a refrigerated box that could sit on your doorstep all day.  This is not something we would ever do.  We do NOT just drop off a of ingredients.  We do all the meal preparation work (shopping, slicing, dicing, chopping, measuring) for our customers so that when our customers receive our meals, there is minimal work beyond following our simple cooking instructions.  We also employ a much more personal approach, by letting our customers schedule a date/time that is convenient for them so they can receive their meals personally.

 

Our portions are much larger & Include sides with most meals.  We deliver our meals in either 5 lb loaf tin pans or large zip lock bags depending on the type of meal.  Our meals come in either 3 or 6 serving portions.

 

Our customers really seem to like the diversity of our monthly menus.  We try our best to provide new and exciting options each month for our customers.  We also include side dishes with most of our non-pasta meals for our customer’s convenience.

 

We recently launched a new website that is much more user-friendly for our customers and added a catering menu as well!  We also included a quick 2-minute video that fully & simply explains our offerings to our customers so there is confusion.

 

We also don’t make our customers scour the internet for coupons.  So, once you place your first order with us or simply sign up to our mailing list in general, we’ll send our customers periodic menu updates with coupons included in our emails.

6. Where do you source your ingredients from?

The quality and freshness of our ingredients are incredibly important to us, so we only work directly with safe and reputable distributors.

7. What is the best way to thaw my meals?

The best and safest way to thaw your meals is with refrigerator thawing. Simply take your meal out of the freezer the night before you plan on having it and place it into the refrigerator to thaw. Even 2-5 days prior to cooking is fine. If your meal is packaged in zip lock bags, you can also thaw them in your microwave. Note: Some meals come in tins and cannot be placed into the microwave for safety reasons. In addition, if your meal is packaged in zip lock bags, you can also thaw it by submerging the bag in cold water. Never use hot water as that can cause the outer layer of the food to heat up to a temperature where harmful bacteria begin to multiply. You should estimate about 30 minutes of thawing time per pound of food.

8. Do your dinners come with sides?

Yes, most of our non-pasta meals come with a side like vegetables (i.e. green beans, carrots, roasted tomatoes, broccoli), mashed potatoes, cauliflower mash, or fries, etc.
