"Thank you very much for the risotto cakes recipe...they were to die for!! If you don't mind I would love the carrot recipe too! I accidentally took the leftovers home and did not share. By the way, my sister absolutely dislikes whipped cream. She tasted yours (I believe you called it Chantilly sauce...not positive) and said it was delicious, but try to make the rest of us believe it was ice cream.
I also wanted to thank you again for making my mom's birthday, as she says, the best birthday ever! She is still talking about you and how your food was amazing. All I know is her other girlfriends that were not invited were super jealous!! My boyfriend who is in love with cooking said while eating, "this is some good stuff...this woman can cook!" You are indeed an awesome cook with a wonderful personality and I am grateful and appreciative for your services. I also can't forget the patience you had waiting for my mother to show up almost an hour later...thank you, thank you, thank you!" - Ikenya E. Maryland
"It was October 2014 and my company was setting up a 2 week, intense induction program for 8 individuals from all over the country. It goes without saying that we spent weeks working on how to set up the best training program we have ever put forth, but our business is hospitality consulting so we knew that the food had better be something you couldn't help savor, talk about, and remember as well. To be clear, many of these people have had private meals prepared by the best chefs in the world because they are friends.
To make it even more intense for me (the one responsible for setting up the entire event), one of the most critical and discerning of the group was a Maryland native and we had a "Maryland seafood" night with the main being Maryland crab cakes. Not only did he speak very highly of her dish that night, all 5 meals she cooked for us were nothing short of amazing.
Since then I have been to one other event she catered for the founder of the company I work for. There were about 10 of us and the only time we were silent all night was when her food was out.
To top it all off, not only does she make some of the best food I have had the pleasure of tasting, she is an absolute delight to have in your kitchen. Lettie is truly a professional, leaving a clean kitchen, full bellies, and a room full of smiles.
While our relationship is purely that of her cooking and me eating, it is hard for me to not feel she is a friend. Leave dinner to Lettie; you will thank her you did."

"I just wanted to let you know my boyfriend and I loved what you made for us. My boyfriend in particular really flipped out, and he can be hard to please! We both loved the kale, squash, and lentils dish. It's a little hotter than I would prefer but he could easily do even spicier, so you walked the right line in making it work for both of us"

"We enjoyed the meals you made. My older son LOVED the chicken enchiladas. I think I’ll ask you to make those again next week."

"Lettie's meals are terrific-- and healthy. She is flexible about suggestions and having her cook has had the added benefit of simplifying and freeing up time."

"I can't say enough about how much our guests and my wife & I enjoyed last Friday evening. Your services were terrific and the food was even better. Having never done this before, we did'nt know what to expect but could'nt have had a better time. I assure you you'll hear from us again (and maybe from some of our friends!). Not only do we want to do this again but we think it would be a great gift for both of our married kids. Thanks again for being a huge part of our memorable evening!"

"As a part of my parent's 40th wedding anniversary we hired Lettie to serve our family dinner. She was an exciting surprise for my parents and she did a wonderful job. While planning the dinner Lettie offered a wide assortment of food and was open to other ideas. The food we planned and she served was delicious. The portions were perfect; enough for leftovers so we could savor the night. I'm already thinking about another party to hire Lettie again! "

"THANK YOU for last night - the booking process was so simple, you were so easy to schedule and work with, and the food was amazing!"
