Sample Menus

Whether you're looking for old-fashioned home style comfort food, healthy low-cal low-fat entrees, or gourmet delights, I'm here to make your meals special and I'll do my best to create whatever you desire. When we meet for your consultation we'll choose from more entrees than you can imagine; and I'm constantly adding new ones.

Below is a sampling to tantalize your taste buds.

I'll work with you to "personalize" any dish. Need low fat? Love garlic? Allergic to eggs? We'll work together!

The freshest ingredients available are used in every dish. I may even shop for you at 2 or 3 different markets to be sure you get the best produce, meat and seafood at the best prices.
