Hey Nancy — I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed Margot’s birthday party–Michael and Willie May did an amazing job and they made it just so easy to sit back and enjoy the birthday girl and the guests. The food was perfect and delicious! YOU did an amazing job as well. It was all so good. Kevin said he wants you to cook once a week now….:) I can’t say that I don’t want the same. Again…thank you so very much” — Courtney S.

Hi Chuck & Nancy! Yet again your food was a smashing success! Can you share a generic recipe for the salmon and tri-tip and not give away any secrets? I presume you grill both on wood at low temps. Will be calling y’all for a holiday party and sharing your number with friends! Thanks for making this so easy and delicious!” — Lisa C., First Tennessee Bank

Hi Nancy, I just want to thank you for a very successful reception on Friday afternoon. Everything went so smoothly, and I appreciate your staff so much!! Willie Mae, Sarah and Michael (forgive any misspellings) work so hard and so well. I really enjoy having them here! Please pass on my thanks to them. As always, we’ll look forward to working with you again, Nancy! Thanks for everything.” — Stephanie

Nancy and Chuck, Many thanks for Saturday night, the food was spectacular! And in a pinch, when we had given you a head count of 60 and 135 showed up – you really lived up to your name “Just In Thyme”! Many, many thanks for making the party seamless.” — Ruth C.

Dear Chuck and Nancy, I can’t thank you enough for last night ~ the food was delicious and your service impeccable! I do have to apologize – my “specialty drink” was much more potent than I realized and I was way overserved before I knew what had happened. Consequently I did not thank you enough and I have no idea what I was thinking when I wrote the check for the tip. I am mailing you another check for additional tip and please let your servers know how sorry I am for my mistake!” — Joanie L.

Hi Nancy, You snuck out before I had a chance to say goodbye! Once again, your food was a huge hit among our guests. Everyone was happily snacking away. The food was delicious. Doug got to enjoy some of the leftovers tonight. Everyone was so helpful- Sarah and ?? (I’m blanking on the gentleman’s name) were so terrific. We can’t thank you enough for providing such exceptional cuisine and service. You really have the best catering service in town!!!” — Rona M., St. Jude (Immunology Department)

Chuck — I just want to thank you again for dropping off at my house that delicious yellow watermelon. I think that the yellow ones are even sweeter than the red ones! I ate almost the entire watermelon sharing only a little bit with Bruce. You were so sweet to take the time and bring it to me. Big thanks.” — Janie H.

Nancy, you are an incredible caterer. The food was delicious, planning and organization for the MUS Seniors brunch was excellent. The MUS Faculty and Staff luncheon meal was so good.

Chuck, I wanted to thank Nancy and you for a completely successful evening that was made special by your catered food and service! Everyone commented how attentive and great the service was and my wife made the statement afterward, “Honey, I’m so glad you talked me into catering, they were priceless.” We hope Micheal’s hand is better and he had no setback.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased everyone was with the food you delivered to my mom’s on December 13 for the visitation of my aunt. I think you worked with Angie K. At any rate, my 86 year old mom was absolutely stressed to the max, and the food was simply wonderful and an answer to a prayer. You made it so easy for her and everything was just lovely. I can’t thank you enough for making things so simple. Hope your holidays were great and see you soon.” — Murrey W.

Thank you for the amazing meals that you provided for us this weekend! We thoroughly enjoyed everything!!! My son asked me why I cannot cook Pork tenderloin like that. I had to explain to him that I do not have a way to smoke pork tenderloin. That was lost on him! (: My mother-in-law asked me if I would ask you for the recipe for the appetizer and the salad dressing. Thank you again for the wonderful meals!” — Jeni M.

Chuck and Nancy- Just wanted to let you know that your food was complimented over and over last night. Thanks for the help in getting it together.” — Witt W.

Nancy, the Chicken Marbella was fantastic!!!!! Definitely one of your better entrees, we both loved it! Thanks.” — Carolyn M.

Hello! I was wondering what your options are for weddings. I am getting married this fall at my parents residence in midtown. We expect around 125-150 people. I am interested in a few action stations with a small buffet and passed appetizers during a cocktail hour. My mom attended a holiday party that you catered and said the food was delicious! I look forward to hearing back from you. Thank you!” — Katie B.

Hello, you catered the food for my baby shower at Ansley’s house, and we’re all still talking about how good the food was!

We would love to have you cater the brunch following church…Let me know if you’d be available for this date. Thank you!” — Mary C.

Nancy, Cooper and I loved the chicken pot pie! Do you have any more of those left? I have two friends who have been sick and I would love to take them one. If you have extra, I’d like 3! Thanks,

Thanks for a great event.” — Brenda C., First Tennessee

I want to thank you for catering the reception after my mother’s funeral.  We knew that you would do everything in a tasteful and elegant manner — a major reason why mom would never use anyone else to cater. I am just so thankful you were able to prepare everything given such short notice.  Mom enjoyed your food so much and respected you as a business woman.  I have many happy memories from my wedding day—it was perfect—from the garden, the lights, the flowers and of course, the food! I still have people tell me after 2 years how awesome our food was. Again, thank you for showing our family such kindness over the years. We appreciate you.” — Love, Jessica

Thanks. Food was great!” — Chris C., Dobbs Management Service

Many thanks for the lovely rehearsal dinner you presented on Friday night!! We and our guests loved all the food. Nice to have a few leftovers too-this MOG is not ready for cooking. Your staff was fantastic too. It was obvious they were being very attentive and we appreciate that so much. Sorry I didn’t get to thank you in person but like Xmas elves you were gone in a flash and took the trash! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  See you at our next wedding!” — Colleen C.

The box lunch you catered at my neighborhood garden club Monday was delicious!” — Cynthia C.

Just wanted to thank you for making yesterday possible. The food was both amazing and beautifully presented. Now I wish I had selected more for you to serve. You received nothing but raves. I am not sure what dish I enjoyed most; everything was so delicious. Your staff was attentive to detail, professional, and unobtrusive in their jobs. Steve and I appreciate your work, look forward to working with you in the future. Again, many thanks.” — Deborah B.

I hope you had a few nice days to relax with your family after a crazy month of catering. Our holiday party was a huge success. The food was more delicious than last year and your presentation was seamless. We are so grateful that you were available despite my error in scheduling the correct day.
