What We Do
While we are famous for our unique in home cooking service, we also offer a range of other services to help you around the kitchen. From pantry organisation to basic cooking lessons, we love to help. We can even count the carbs on that eating program. We bring everything required to complete the service but sometimes we do need the use of an oven and of course, we ask for a clean area to start. Add our online grocery service if you don’t have time to get to the shops. We have it delivered the day before your cook and while it is an add on, it is usually more cost effective than shopping for yourself.
In Home Cooking
Make your booking with your local cook & choose 3 or 5 meals from over 100 recipes (15 or 25 serves), prepared in your own kitchen. We arrive at your home fully equipped to carry out the service. We just need a clean bench and sink, and for some dishes, an oven.
Our Keto menu is ideal for those following a KETO or LCHF way of eating. We have done all of the hard work. Found all the ingredients lowest in NET carbs, calculated the macros for you, and when we arrive we cook and clean up. You just get to do the good part. EAT IT.
As a registered NDIS provider around the country, we are able to help cater for any participants who have meal prep or independence as part of their goals. For self and plan managed participants we can also help with our learn to cook program. (see below)
Our goal is to turn clutter and chaos into an efficient space, by transforming your kitchen into a place you can enjoy. Whether you love Or hate cooking, it’s much easier when the space is organised.

This journey began when I offered to help a friend from church do some cooking for an elderly relative. He had little experience in the kitchen and was dealing with his wife’s advancing Alzheimer’s Disease. My friend had been helping with meals but hated cooking so much that she knew she was putting fairly average food into their fridge. I sent her a list of meal options to choose from, which resulted in a short shopping list of ingredients for her to buy. From there I went over with my non-perishables and cooked up a storm.
The end result was a selection of tasty, nutritious meals that were healthier and much cheaper than the takeaway and convenience food they had been eating to get by. I made 25 meals in just a few short hours. We were both amazed.
And so an idea was born. I saw the opportunity to simplify people’s lives, by cooking for them in their own homes – the same way your cleaner comes and cleans for you – with their own food, in their own kitchens.
Meals are made from scratch using simple, wholesome ingredients. There are no additives, no preservatives, and no mass production. It’s just simple, honest-to-goodness home cooking. Prepared with love.
We are unique. We’re dedicated to helping you simplify life. And we think you’ll love our food as much as we love cooking it for you.

“Wonderful service for anyone that’s time poor, particularly for those mid-week meals for mums or anyone with a busy household!“

“This was an amazing experience. Karen did such a good job: she came, cooked ridiculously yummy dishes and in 3 hours my fridge was packed with homemade meals for THE WEEK! As a working mother – it doesn’t get better than this! Karen is so organised, left a clean kitchen and you could see she works so neatly. I personally don’t really hate cooking but I’m definitely time poor and this bought my precious time…. so I folded a weeks worth of laundry while my family”s food for the week was cooking….
Karen has a gift and her food is Devine. I highly recommend her to everyone who likes good food! thanks Karen.”
