We took in two meals from Bess and they were excellent! Directions for reheating were very clear and results were delicious. Our favorites were the key lime pie and mac and cheese...best ever. Highly recommend.

Great sandwiches, super soups, but the deviled eggs are to die for. Everything made the way you would make it yourself if you you actually wanted to make it yourself.
