Great Food, 7/22/2016

This is my fourth time ordering after being given a gift card. I love the easy ordering process on line and the selection. The most recent order was lasagna but I still think I like the salmon the... best!

Healthy and Awesome!

A friend sent me a gluten free meal. We chose the Caribbean Flank Steak. It was delicious! I highly recommend this service to anyone who wants a break from cooking or to send someone a delicious prepared meal. I have been using them since 2008 when a neighbor sent me a meal.

Mouth-watering Seared Salmon!

After a recent illness, my work colleagues gave my family and I four deluxe dinners from Instead of Flowers. We had never heard of Instead of Flowers before but the food selection looked mouth-watering on the website. The first dinner we ordered was the Seared Salmon Filet with Lobster Sauce. It came with Garden Salad with house vinaigrette, Steamed Asparagus with herb butter, Wild rice pilaf with dried cranberries, French Bread Rolls, and Rocky road brownies. I expected the food to be good but did not expect it to taste as great as it looked on the website - things are never as good as the picture. Wow, we were wrong – it was even better than we expected!! My 9-year-old said “It is the best salmon I have ever had in my life!” and my 5-year-old said “The asparagus is very very yummy! I Love It!” My 5-year-old kept asking for more of the asparagus and before we knew it she had eaten 12 spears already! She also said to note that she Loves the bread. :-) The food was delivered in a nice insulated cooler tote, with cold packs included, to ensure that everything stayed fresh! The directions were clear and simple to follow and with no effort at all, we had an amazing meal on the table. The meals we ordered were for a family of four and there was more than enough to eat. I expect that I will never order flowers again for someone when they are sick, having a baby, or any other occasion. I will order Instead of Flowers!

We received a scrumptious dinner last night from Instead of Flowers....from Val, Valda, and Bethany. It was so delicious! the food arrived beautifully packaged and ready to warm. What a wonderful way to make my hubby and me smile. Instead of Flowers is phenomenal! Thanks to my thoughtful piano students for making us feel like a queen and king.

Friends sent us a deluxe meal as a gift. It arrived in the time span given to us. All items kept on ice in the delivery bag. Everything packaged nicely with heating instructions where needed. The presentation and the quality of the food was outstanding....it was as good as anything we could have found in a fine restaurant! A great gift idea for any occasion.

So glad to receive Instead of Flowers!

Our friends gave us the gift of a delicious meal from Instead of Flowers and we were delighted. The food was delicious: Beef Bourguignon, egg noodles, green beans with herb butter, garden salad, dinner rolls, and the most decadent butterscotch bars for dessert. The portions were very generous, and we were able to feed two adults and three small children for two meals with the "Dinner for four" package. The meal was delivered to us upon arriving home from a funeral, and we were running late getting home. When the meal was delivered, I was contacted by the business and they offered to come back once I was home. I told them I would be home shortly and they could just leave it on my porch. It was waiting for us there in an insulated bag, and all the food was presented perfectly. All I had to do was heat it up. All the preparation directions were included. I am glad to have been a recipient of this gift, and I will most certainly use Instead of Flowers in the future.

Wonderful meal for the entire family

We received a meal for 4 (Shrimp/Pasta - Salad - Roasted Vegetables-Bread & Cheesecake - Absolutely wonderful. Just what we needed to take the choir of cooking off our plate. Not sure what this cost as it was a gift...so I will give it an average rating.

Fantastic food to send to others!

Recently, a friend sent me a Deluxe Dinner for 4 from "Instead of Flowers" to lend support to us since my husband was recovering from serious back surgery. What a treat this! The food was delicious and there were generous portions....enough for 2 meals. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal. I could choose from their Deluxe menus and I selected a tasty meal of roast pork, cheese potato casserole, a delicious spinach salad and more! I highly recommend this business to anyone who wants to send a wonderful meal to someone special! Delightful!

Best in Town

I was grateful that several meals were given to us following my surgery. They have been delicious! The meals were delivered exactly when we had been told they would come. There was plenty of really good food - enough to have leftovers. The food was cooked perfectly and easy to heat up to serve. We will be using this service for others in the future.
