There are only two of us. Can I split the meals in half so I have two dinners?
Absolutely. Please keep in mind some recipes are easier to split than others due to the type of food and recipe design. For these recipes you may want to cook the full recipe at home and then re-freeze the second half for a later date.
I’m having a party; can you help?
Of course! Many of our guests entertain with our meals they just order several of the same dinner to serve to their guests. This will enable you to have a low stress party, and your friends will love the food.
What about special dietary needs and allergy concerns?
