Reviewed April 2, 2014

After reviewing Craig's comments on Dream Dinners, I decided to try it out. They are open only on certain days, and reservations are required. The owner/manager, Bonnie, is extremely helpful and friendly, as well as knowledgable about her establishment. This is a franchise operation, based in Washington state (but with most of their stores in California - naturally), so they have a great economy of scale, with set menus for the entire chain. When I arrived for my session, there were a half-dozen others there, who were regular customers. They knew what they were doing - I didn't, but the super-helpful staff made it (relatively) easy. Craig has described the setup. It was as he said. I have tried 4 of the entrees that I put together that day; they were all good (some better than others), but all were American Heart Association-sized portions. Three servings was actually enough for two people with healthy appetites.

At Dream Dinners you go in (after on-line ordering the meals you want) and prepare the meals. You can prepare (12) 3 person meals in about 2 hours. Then you freeze them, take them home and prepare them in 20-60 minutes as you want them. Each meal is prepared at a stainless steel kitchen station which has been set up for that meal. The station will have all the ingredients ready for you, pre-chopped if required, and with the correct measuring spoon for your recipe. You pick up the recipe instructions when you arrive, go to the various stations, and assemble your meals. Additionally, most meals are quite cost effective, and the recipes are wonderful. The only down side is that the meat portions are the 4 oz size recommended in health guidelines, and I can eat two servings if I'm not restrained!
