Tira, all of the adjustments below sound perfect. We really enjoyed the Thai glazed wings w/ potato wedges so if you made those again we would appreciate it. We will miss your wonderful food.
Hi Tira - We loved all three dishes this week! They actually helped out a lot too because my daughter was born on Wed night itself!! We took the dishes to the hospital with us so that we didn't have to eat hospital food. For next week, we’d like the Vegetable Tian, the soft tacos, and the red bean lasagna. Looking forward to it!
“I primarily eat traditional dishes and have always been reluctant to allow my taste-buds to try anything new. But eating Tira's Shrimp and Grits and her Blackened Shrimp and Crabmeat Fondue, has given me a whole new perspective on the concept of 'just try it'. I'm always amazed at how she's able to just some how make it all (flavor, seasonings, aroma) come together!”
Tira WOW! i just saw the gift and it is just awesome! thank you so very much for all the special touches you added, i am so excited to give it to them! Thanks again,
Thank you for coming yesterday. It was great to come back home and have a wonderful dinner! Thank you. We are now in town so feel free to send us next week's menu anytime this week since we'll be around.
Had salad last night... Very refreshing... Having shrimp now... Love it Andrew likes shrimp dish as we'll. Thank you! Looking forward to it! It was such a wonderful gift to come home to fresh cooked food
Hi Tira! Well, you are a STAR!! My mother (Melvina Bien) absolutely Loved, Loved, Loved your food!! Thank you for saving the day. She wished you would have taken gas Money however, she said you were happy to know she would light a candle for you at church.
Again, with so much gratitude and Thanks,
Chef Tira, sorry to just be responding to your message our little son keeps mommy and daddy pretty busy these days esp. since Donell returned to work recently.
Thank you so much for the delicious meals! We loved each dish! It was so nice to come home to such exquisite food especially since we really didn't have much prepared food remaining in the house. And a number of the ladies who attended my shower are still talking about the delicious food you provided! Take care and God Bless! P.S. I must start planning some special event so we can have more of your delicious comfort food!
My neighbor who is a GREAT cook tried your pasta. said it was better than any italian restaurant she had ever been to!
I would like to say thank you so much for providing dinner for me and my family on Tuesday. Everything was nicely prepared and very delicious. I actually had seconds, which is something I rarely do. I especially enjoyed the rosemary bread as an added treat (rosemary is one of favorite spices).
The food for both evenings was excellent! I especially liked the Thai Glazed chicken because of the added kick of just enough spice, but not too much. The red beans and rice was also one of my favorites. I could not stop eating the jambalaya. The dessert tray with the assortment of cheesecakes and truffles was also a nice plus. Oh, the loaded Mac and Cheese was very flavorful and so good! Thanks so much!.
Thank you! We feel blessed to have you in our life. My mom really enjoyed meeting you and is really enjoying the food!
We truly enjoy Comfort ‘N Spice Personal Chef services! The convenience of having great tasting, healthy food, ready to eat at the end of a busy day is wonderful! It is so nice to come home to something fresh and tasty instead of eating fast food or take out. And, the clean up is so easy! Your personal chef services provide us with great food and the gift of time! We now have more time to eat together and more quality time in general. Thanks to you and Comfort ‘N Spice!
Thank you Tira, for all of your hard work to make my mother's event so much fun for her. She was very impressed and had nothing but nice things to say about you and your assistants.
I will certainly recommend your services to everyone!
WOW! i just saw the gift and it is just awesome! thank you so very much for all the special touches you added, i am so excited to give it to them!
You are great. I love that you are doing so much to accommodate Dom. We would love the peanut butter cookies this time. I like your idea of us placing what we want to be frozen after we try it instead. I will make sure to empty as much space for you in our freezer. We do not have any special container for Dom's food so whatever you use works for us. Thanks again & see you on Wed. morning.
“Comfort ‘N Spice was the perfect choice for my husband's surprise party. My husband is from New Orleans so Chef Tira and I decided on a Creole-themed menu. While I was stressing over last-minute details, Chef Tira was in the kitchen preparing an assortment of tasty treats. By the time I finished hanging the banner, Chef Tira had arranged the food and cleaned the kitchen. It was my first experience with Comfort ‘ N Spice, but it won't be my last.”
Chef Tira, thanks for the wonderfully seasoned and flavorful meals! We love your use of spices and fresh herbs! And, we appreciate you for introducing us to a few new foods such as Peruvian Style Chicken and Sweet and Spicy Glazed Salmon – all while honoring allergy concerns! You are appreciated!
I like the 3 options you gave. Sounds good!
The chicken and lime dish with the potatoes is amazing!!! My new favorite! Can you make the same potatoes with the honey ginger chicken for next week. Carlos is also loving the chicken with the dilled potatoes. Soooo good!
You are such a great chef and we are so lucky!
WOW! Just wanted to let you know that everything you’ve made for us is wonderful! You must use over 100 spices in your cooking! Even the diet food is great! For several months, you have provided great food and great service! We love the way you continue to work with us to meet our dietary needs and concerns – even when our needs change! Your willingness to adapt and learn new diets/cuisines is greatly appreciated. We especially like the way you adapt each of our individual meals - Dr. Simmeon’s diet and spicy food for one of us, and the Mediterranean diet, and not so spicy for the other! Your positive attitude, friendly personality, exceptional food, and flexibility all add up to outstanding service! And, we can’t wait to take a few of your Comfort N Spice cooking classes! Thanks for all you do!
Chef Tira's cooking is an eating experience that will take you on a journey to a place you've never been. On this journey, you will land in a place where you're surprised and completely satisfied. Even with the simplest dinner like
spaghetti, Tira combines a very unique blend of spices and herbs that is completely unexpected but absolutely delectable.
Just wanted you to know that we enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms! I just want you to know we really enjoy your cooking. I won't bother you with a review everytime we eat your meals. Just know that your cooking is great!
Our son's Eagle Scout Ceremony was a very important event for our family, and we wanted to have a dinner that expressed this special day. Chef Tira
took the time to share with us many different ideas and beautiful salads. There were so many great ideas; we chose 5 different dishes, and all were excellent. Many of our guests commented that this was by far the best food they ever had at an Eagle ceremony. We were very pleased that the food reflected how important this day was.
Hi Tira, I wanted to send you this brief note to let you know that we have enjoyed the fried chicken and baked potatoes and last night, Michael and I both had a chance to eat some of the jambalaya and found it very good as well. It's exciting to provide Michael with some jambalaya, a dish he loves, but can never order because of the onions. I normally am not that crazy about jambalaya, but I did enjoy yours and it really is a nice change from some of our normal dishes.
I might have mentioned a concern about enough food for the three of us, but I am finding the portions are working out well. I didn't realize the serving sizes originally for the fried chicken and the jambalaya.
We'll definitely want to keep these two dishes along with the roasted chicken and green beans from before.
I just wanted to THANK YOU for the wonderful meal you prepared. Bill and I really loved being able to relax at home, listen to our own music and enjoy a delicious meal. Since I'm not a very good cook, this wouldn't have been possible without your service.
Everything about the meal was perfect - all the dishes were flavored so tastefully, the meat was warm and moist, the bread was so soft and seasoned just right and the portions were very large (enough left over for another full meal for each of us).
After dinner, it only took us about 5 minutes to clear the table and the clean up was done. You left the kitchen spotless - it was even cleaner than before you started!
Thanks for helping to make our evening so special. We really appreciate your service.
Well, in case you were wondering, it was a clean sweep here in the Lehman house.
After giving the kids your meal tonight:
Daughter: "Ms. Tira is a terrific chef. This food is deee-licious." (She really enjoyed the asparagus too.)
Son: "These pork chops are soooooo good."
Made me think, maybe my son would be a better eater if I was a better cook..... ;o) Makes me wonder.
And, I couldn't believe how moist the pork chops were even a day later. I rarely can get pork chops to be moist for the first meal - much less the second. Great job! The meals were fantastic.
Hey Tira! This is for 5/13. Loved the pasta from last week and the pork chops lasted 2 days. The ginger sauce was the biggest hit ... Put it on everything
Loved the tacos and eggplant! Thank you!
Best nut brittle ever!!! Thank you. Made my day!
Chick pea soup better than mine!
Just wanted to let you know that we loved everýthing! We ate the Shrimp Picatta, wilted spinach and rosemary bread. As soon as Nate walked in, he said, "Wow, it smells good". We both thought everything was great. We can't wait to try the other entrees!
Have a good night!
These options look great. Let's go with the southwest Mac and cheese, chicken packet and quinoa with Asian flavors.
Food this week had been fantastic...as usual!!
Hi Miss Tira!
Your picture is beautiful! I think about you all the time and wish I still had you cooking for us. Someday you will be back in my kitchen, girl! When I get these boys off to college, I envision you in my life cooking for Jeff and me. Guess what--I no longer have to be dairy-free. Opens up a whole new world for me! yeah. Have a nice Thanksgiving with those handsome boys of your's!
We had your AWESOME quinoa dish last night. Thank you so much. It was soooo kind of you!
- Hi Tira, all of my girlfriends have called me and gushed over the great food and wonderful evening you and your staff made possible. You were so professional and anticipated all our needs and of course prepared a superb meal which my sons and I are still enjoying. And thanks also for the embroidered hankie...my Mom has raised my sister and I to be hankie people! Thanks again for such a lovely evening and blessing us. God shows up in some of the most surprising places, doesn't He?
I'm not going to send an email every night but I do have to tell you that your ribs are the best ribs I've ever tasted. Nate agrees.
Hi Tira! We had the jambalaya and rolls and loved them! My husband loved it too. The menu sounds great for next week. For the red beans and rice, could we try just the sausage substitute? We do like okra!
The vegetarian “chicken” piccata and Southwest mac and cheese were delicious. We are so happy to have found you too and look forward to working with you!
