Here's what clients are saying:

"Gina's In-Home Personal Cooking services were a lifesaver during a particularly busy time for my family. Rather than resorting to restaurants and takeout, we made a much wiser decision with our money. We hired Gina to come into our kitchen and stock our freezer with nutrient-dense meals that we could simply thaw, heat, and eat on busy evenings. Gina worked with us to know our food preferences and made sure we would love every dish she made. She left our kitchen clean & our freezer full!"

- Mandie B, Columbia MD


"After my home cooking session with Gina, I finally noticed the constant background stress around food...was gone!  It was the stress of not knowing what to buy, not knowing what to cook, and being too tired and hungry to care. Being able to come home to real good food with uncompromising ingredients, and always having something to bring to work allowed me to think ahead, and plan for the next week, or the next month.

It was the kick start I needed to create some momentum.  I don't need to worry about what to eat right now, because now is already taken care of!  Thank you Gina, and thank you for your continued support!!!" 

- Dorothy M, Silver Spring MD


"Refrigerator STOCKED. All AIP, all delicious, and this busy mama can focus on other things. In case you have been curious about Gina Rieg's personal cooking services ... she has come out to cook for us three times now, and I can honestly tell you that I recommend her without reservations. She is the best."

- Janet A, Bethesda MD
