Personal Assistance:

Meals by Mark (Mark Sherman)
Patti's Comments:  Mark is almost a member of our family now, we love him and his cooking!! He comes about twice a month and cooks 3 to 4 healthy meals for our family. He makes sure my children have a warm snack on the days he cooks here. Since we started working with Mark (about 4 years ago) our food bills have gone down and we are eating healthier.  I highly recommend a personal chef like Mark (just please do not steal him from us) for any family that struggles with time limitations but still wants to have dinners together. We order less carry out and/or pizza and the kids still enjoy the food. Last but not least if you have a friend struggling with an illness or recovering from an accident, consider having Mark make them a batch of home made chicken soup!!
