    Comment:  Maria Montesano has been cooking once a week for my family for a few months, and it is such a relief to have healthy and delicious meals on hand. As a working mom, I was continuously scrambling to throw meals together at the last minute and that usually resulted in fish sticks or scrambled eggs. Maria sends me menu options and a subsequent grocery list each week, and now my kids are eating their veggies AND enjoying them. I find Maria very flexible and open to new menu ideas, and she also understands the dietary needs of our entire family. I highly recommend her!

    Comment:  Maria Montesano has been cooking delicious and healthy meals for my family for 4 months and she has changed the quality of my days--I am no longer frantically trying to come up with dinner on a daily basis. I found her via the recommendation on Park Slope Parents.Maria provides us with menu options (that includes our own recommendations), provides us with a shopping list, and then comes once a week to cook for a few hours. She cooks 3 entrees and 2 side dishes in 6-8 portions that we can store and mix and match throughout the week. Her rates are absolutely reasonable and honestly cheaper than the take out I was doing prior to her starting to cook for us. We now regularly eat home-made Jamaican fish curry, sweet potato shepard's pie, chicken tikka masala, just to mention a few of our favorites!
