Keithley in the Kitchen is committed to providing culinary solutions for busy individuals.  You and your family will enjoy dining on healthy and well-prepared meals in the comfort of your own home with menu plans that have been designed especially for you. 

Each menu plan includes:

  • Personalized food and nutritional assessment
  • Complete customized menu planning
  • Shopping for the freshest ingredients
  • Meal preparation in your home
  • Packaging, labeling and storage of your meals
  • Clear directions for warming your meals
  • Kitchen clean-up

Each client’s needs are unique and your personal pricing plan will be determined by these needs so that Keithley in the Kitchen can best be of service to you and your family.  The pricing is based on a flat service fee, with the cost of groceries kept as a separate charge. By paying for the grocery costs separately you are able to optimize your control over the final costs of your meal plan by choosing chicken wings over lobster tails.  The choice is yours!

Meal Preparation

Multiple meals are prepared in the safety of your kitchen in one day and are stored in your refrigerator and freezer.  “What’s for dinner?” takes on a whole new meaning!
Meals are prepared according to your individual tastes along with any dietary restrictions.  You can dine in the comfort of your own home any time you want.

Personal chef services are needed by:

·    Busy moms, working or not, that just can’t do it all
·    Single parents who need extra time with their children
·    Professional individuals or couples who are tired of eating out
·    Educators who have to come home to grade papers
·    Seniors who cannot cook for themselves
·    New parents who need to devote their time to the baby
·    Newlyweds who simply may not know how to cook
·    Someone who may have just lost a loved one

Meal Preparation Pricing

With pricing starting as low as $250 plus the cost of groceries and containers, it is affordable to get healthy homemade meals on your table for you and your family to enjoy at your convenience.  A meal preparation package will be customized according to your individual needs and is available on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis.

During your free consultation we will discuss your options thoroughly and design a service with a schedule that meets your specific culinary needs. My service is flexible and can be adjusted to meet your needs.

Average grocery costs vary with menu choice and meal plans, but generally do not exceed $125 - $150 per meal program. 

All meal plans are subject to a container fee, which will be determined during your free consultation, based upon your preference of containers and desired warming methods.

Payment plus a grocery deposit is due in advance of the cooking date. For your convenience, cash, check, or money order is accepted. You will receive an invoice indicating the credit or debit balance for the groceries purchased.

Cancellation policy:

A cancellation fee of $50.00 is charged unless I am notified five business days prior to your cook date in order to accommodate other clients.


Refer a friend who signs up for a cook date and receive 10% off your next service.
