Customer Testimonials

Tammy and Innovative Catering Solutions recently provided catering services for my company, first for our company's traditional pre-Thanksgiving lunch and then our Christmas party. Both were perfectly executed and the food was delicious. The Thanksgiving roast turkey was so moist and flavorful that everyone kept coming back for more along with her mashed potatoes, gravy and dressing. We requested a "finger food" buffet for our Christmas get together and the selection, quality and quantity of food was amazing to say the least. Wings, shrimp, meatballs, and tons more food beyond belief, plus sweets including beautiful chocolate covered strawberries and a punch bowl set a new standard for our parties of the future.
Prior to each event, Tammy worked with my staff to plan and understand our needs. There were no last minute surprises, and her involvement eliminated the usual stress to pull off these events. Tammy even brought packaging for the leftover food so our people could take some home if they wished. It's amazing how nice it is to relax and enjoy yourself knowing that everything's covered. Innovative Catering Solutions will be our company go-to from here on out!

We cannot say enough how glad we are that we had Tammy Torborg and Innovative Catering cater our son's rehearsal dinner in our home. Tammy helped us choose the menu, gave us several options for sides and desserts and kept in close contact with us regarding our plans and number of guests. She arrived at our home the night of the rehearsal and set up so that when we all arrived home, we were welcomed by a beautiful set-up and delicious looking meal. There was nothing that we needed to do but enjoy the delicious food and our guests. We received many compliments on the food and presentation!! And the best part was when we were all done with the meal, Tammy cleaned up and we were able to just enjoy the evening and relax with our family and friends. I will definitely have Innovative Catering cater my future events. Bravo!!"

I was planning my first graduation party for my son and my husband came across Innovative Catering Solutions on the internet, we read all the great reviews and decided to give them a try. I met with Tammy and she was so helpful and gave great attention to detail at my son's party that was on 06/14/14. She even remembered the kind of taco sauce he likes.Tammy and her team were very professional and did an excellent job on setting up, serving, and taking care of the food. She did such a fabulous job that everyone of our guests loved the food. The chicken was out of this WORLD. Our family and friends are still talking about the wonderful food and party. We HIGHLY recommend Tammy and her catering company.

Again I want to say how great Innovative Catering is to work with. The professionalism, the attention to detail, the wonderful food - everything an organization could ask for in a catering firm!

Thank you very much for serving our nonprofit. Your food and service was the highlight of our very successful event!

We asked Tammy at Innovative Catering Solutions to help us with a very important visit from our CEO and Leadership Team from our headquarters. This was a critical event, and we wanted everything to be perfect. We had never worked with Innovative before, but we were willing to take a chance with all of the wonderful testimonials on her website.

Let me tell you - it was a HUGE SUCCESS!! With VIPs, it is so very important to ensure that not only is the food delicious, presentation is also so crucial. Everything was PERFECT! For breakfast, we enjoyed several scrumptious quiches, and her Crustless Ham and Potato quiche was incredible! The yogurt, fresh berries and granola parfaits were not only delicious, but were beautiful! Lunch - Main course: Chicken Piccata - our CEO was still talking about this dish on the drive back to the airport. Fresh lemon sauce with capers adorned lovely moist chicken breasts. We can highly recommend!

Many employees have since asked for Innovative's business card. This will definitely be our first call for future engagements!

Thanks, Tammy and your team for a wonderful experience and a lovely reflection on our facility!

My son's wedding dinner was a success due to Tammy and Innovative Catering. From the planning stages through final clean up on the wedding day, she showed complete professionalism. She listened and helped plan the perfect meal to fit the wedding theme. The food was awesome and professionally presented. The guests are still commenting on her special touch of meandering among the guests inquiring if all was well and if there was anything she could do. Going the extra mile is rare but Tammy does it. I WILL use her services again, no question!!

RiverWood Bank utilized Innovative Catering Solutions for the cookies for the Holiday Open House at our Big Lake and Monticello branches this year. The cookies were delivered promptly as promised, and were extremely delicious! There was a wide variety of choices and our customers raved about them all day long. We will definitely be using their services again. They were great to deal with and very reasonably priced.

Tammy Torborg of Innovative Catering Solutions is an excellent resource to take care of your catering needs. I was impressed with Tammy’s impeccable communication skills and professional customer service. Her attention to detail provided me with a customized dinner menu for my family’s Christmas party. She accommodated all of my requests and delivered a wonderful menu which included appetizers, the main course, and dessert. It was a pleasure using Innovative Catering Solutions. Excellent service all the way around from start to finish; Keep up the GREAT work!"

Jackie Sadowski, Elk River
Thank you Tammy for making our Christmas Party a huge success!! We stood around and snacked on all the appetizers and had the best cheesecake for dessert. May I say that the peanut butter cup cheese cake is "WOW Delicious." Everything was disposable so when we were done clean up was quick and easy and we got to spend more time laughing and having fun and less time cleaning up after the party. Tammy does a great job, if you need catering I would recommend Innovative Catering Solutions. Tammy thinks of everything so you can get on with your event and not have to worry about food, clean up, or unhappy guests. I will definitely use Tammy again in the future and so should you!!

Thank you Tammy for a great evening.

Tammy and Innovative Catering Solutions-

We can’t express enough how much we appreciated your catering on December, 12 2013 for our work Christmas party. From the very beginning you really helped us meet our needs to accommodate what we wanted. You were very flexible and willing to show us what you had to offer for the size of our group. The food was the ticket to what everyone was looking for. The desserts need no explaining, they looked and tasted wonderful. Thank you for all the work in planning and catering our Christmas Party. We look forward to the coming future for hosting more parties and knowing we have an excellent cater right in our back yard. Thanks again for all the hard work, we do appreciate it.

Thank you again Tammy

Tammy catered two multi-day training courses for us in November. Each day consisted of breakfast, lunch, and a morning and afternoon snack, and we were very happy with her service. The food was great, and it was wonderful to be able to depend on her showing up on time, promptly setting everything up, and taking care of all of the details for us. We had requested a special dessert for one of our guests from out of town. Tammy researched where it was from and how it was made. Prior to the training date she made the desert to ensure it was made correctly, and during the training date ensured that our guest was happy with the dessert. This was above and beyond what most caterers would have done for us. We would definitely use Innovative Catering Solutions again in the future.

"We had Tammy, and Innovative Catering Solutions cater our annual “Thank You” party for our employees. Tammy was very easy to work with, giving many helpful tips/suggestions from the very beginning planning stages and all the way through the event.

She was able to provide a great catered meal with a really nice variety of appetizers, a fantastic main meal, and a very tasty desert selection. Our guests enjoyed everything and came back to the serving tables many times throughout the evening. The quality and quantity of food was excellent.

From start to finish Tammy had everything organized and taken care of for us. We were able to focus on our guests without having to think about the food at all. "
Thanks Tammy!

WONDERFUL!! We had a taco bar for my daughters graduation party. All my guests were so impressed with the food that Innovative Catering prepared for us. Tammy, herself, came over and set up the taco bar, made it look very appetizing and inviting for our guests, and stayed to make sure the food at the taco bar was replenished so as to not run out. It was so wonderful to be able to sit and visit with our guests and not have to worry about the food. I received so many compliments about the food, not one guest left our party unhappy. Thank you so much Innovative Catering and Tammy for making our party a wonderful success! -

Connie Miller - Big Lake
What a spectacular event we had for my daughters graduation open house. You would't have thoughty it possible if you had seen the weather that day! Rainy and windy and the event was planned in the garage and an adjacent tent! Inspite of the less than ideal weather the event was a warm and inviting breakfast buffet with egg bakes and fresh fruit and made to order hot and delicious Belgiun waffles! When my daughter told me she wanted BREAKFAST for her open house I was surprised but determined to make it happen. Well, I didn't have to look any further than Innovative Catering!! Tammy was great to work with! Not only did she give me great suggestions, but all of the stuff that was included with the catering cost less than if I would have done it myself! And you cannot put a price on eliminating the stress of trying to do it all yourself! Innovative Solutions was the best choice I made! (better than deciding to strip my wallpaper in my family room a weeek before the open house!:-) The food was excellent and EVERYONE raved about it! Tammy and her crew were organized, prompt and professional and looked the part with professional uniforms and beautiful service pieces including a big glass Orange Juice dispenser! If you are even considering a caterer, Innovative Catering is the company!

We recently had Innovative Catering Solutions cater our daughter’s graduation party and they truly made the celebration special in every way. Tammy and her staff were so kind, prompt, organized and have a gift for creating a lovely table of delicious food that got tons of compliments from our family and friends. The good assortment of breakfast food was a hit! Everyone really enjoyed that combination with the sweet waffles and savory quiches and the little ones loved the sausages so much they kept coming back for more! :) The best part of working with them was our family could completely relax and enjoy every moment of the day. We can't thank them enough!

Tammy and her staff at Innovative Catering Solutions, LLC did a wonderful job catering our daughter's wedding reception! Tammy met with our daughter and fiance prior to the event to do the meal planning. She even prepared the meal they had selected and served it to them a few weeks before the wedding to make sure it met their approval! ICS prepared appetizers for the social hour and a full dinner buffet for the meal. Everything tasted wonderful. We received many compliments from the guests. Tammy and her staff were very friendly and worked hard the entire evening, serving the cake and clearing the tables promptly for the guests. Everything was handled very professionally and it was a very enjoyable event. I would highly recommend Tammy and her staff at Innovative Catering Solutions!

We had Tammy cater a retirement party and I found her to be so helpful and accommodating as we were making plans. Tammy was there early and stayed throughout the event making sure everything was in order. The food table looked wonderful and the salads she suggested were delicious! I had many people comment to me about how good everything tasted! I had never worked with a caterer before and Tammy made it very easy and made the party a success! I would definitely recommend Innovative Catering LLC to anyone for their event! Oh, I also had many people at the party tell me they had ordered her Christmas cookies and how great they were! I will be trying those too!

I would like to thank Tammy and the entire Innovative Catering team. We used Innovative Catering for my daughter’s graduation party. As this was our first child to graduate, we had no idea the scope of the work involved in getting ready for this important milestone! Tammy to the rescue! She worked to create a menu which had assortment and variety. The food was perfect and the bars----simply amazing!!!! The team on site did a great job as well. They kept the tables replenished and tidy. Set up and cleanup was simple.
We were able to spend time with friends and family and most importantly with our graduate! Thanks Tammy and team for your services. Look forward to using you again in the future.

"We have had the pleasure to use Innovative Catering for our son's Graduation Party and my Parent's anniversary celebration. Tammy was easy to work with and the food was wonderful. I have given her name out to other friends and they in turn were happy with her service and delicious food as well. Last Christmas we ordered a large plate of her cookies and I had to hide them so there would be some left for our guests! Because we are busy with our business we have ordered the take and bake lasagna - what a treat to have supper just waiting to bake. If you find yourself stressing about an upcoming event I would suggest hiring Innovative Catering so you can enjoy hosting the party and they will worry about the food."

We would like to thank Tammy and Innovative Catering Solutions for catering our wedding two hours away from her kitchen.

Innovative Catering is just that…it is innovative. Tammy personally handles all aspects of your needs from cooking the meal to serving it.

I have worked with Tammy at Innovative Catering Solutions for several years now. We recently hosted a buffet style dinner at our office for 20 people. The food was unbelievable…GREAT home cooking. Everyone really appreciated the food, the layout, and the desserts that Tammy provided. The cost was very reasonable and there was so much food that we invited a bunch of people from neighboring offices to join us as well.

Tammy is always very professional, always punctual with setting up and works with us when we have unique requests. Customizing events is her specialty. I would highly recommend Tammy with Innovative Catering Solutions.

When I broke my arm, I called Innovative Catering to order some of their take ‘n bake meals. I received the meals within 24 hours, all ready to pop into the freezer. It was so easy to take out one meal a day, throw it in the oven and bake. The meals were quick, flavorful and easy to make. My husband and I have enjoyed Tammy’s meals so much so that we are ordering them for another week. I would highly recommend Tammy and Innovative Catering for any occasion. Tammy is a delight to work with and does exactly as she promises. Thank You Tammy, for making my healing process so much easier by providing great meals for my family during this time of recovery.

“Tammy did a great job coordinating the menu and helping me get my guests and RSVP’s all lined up. The event was very nice and she was a gracious hostess and the brunch was great!”

Keller Williams Real Estate

Phenominal! We had Tammy, and Innovative Catering Solutions cater our annual Christmas Dinner for the Big Lake Lions. Tammy was so easy to workwith, even with all of our changes and adjustments right up to just twodays before our event.

She was able to provide a great catered meal for almost 40 people and keep
within our budget! Even though our budget was limited, Tammy never
limited the food in quality or quantity. I watched several members return
to the buffet line again and again.

All in all, Tammy not only made outstanding food, she made the process
outstanding as well. Before she left, she made sure everything was
cleaned up and put away, it was as if she had never even been there. Once
again, helping us provide a fun and memorable evening for our members. I
will not hesitate to contact Innovative Catering Solutions in the future.

Thanks Tammy!

Greg G. - Big Lake Lions

Thank You Tammy for all your great “home cooking”! I have gotten several of your Take ‘N Bakes and they have been delicious. I bought them for my daughter and her friend who both recently had babies. Their husbands really appreciated a good home cooked meal.

I also look forward to the pies I ordered for Thanksgiving. I know they will be as good as or better than the cookies I have ordered in the past. Even my mother-in-law was impressed and she is an awesome cook!!

I also appreciate your flexibility with the ordering and delivery.

Thanks again, you have made my life much easier in the food department.

I was looking for a Catering service for my Sister’s Bridal shower and I was told about Innovative Catering Solutions, LLC owned by Tammy Torborg. So I thought I’d give her a call. I told her I was having a Tropical themed Bridal shower and she came up with some excellent ideas for the food. Tammy is very creative and helpful throughout the whole process. It took so much stress off me knowing I had someone making the food and it turned out great! At the Bridal shower when it was time to eat, everyone thought the food was excellent. I would definitely use and recommend Innovative Catering Solutions, LLC to anyone who is in need of a Caterer. I would say she is one of the best.


Linda (Monticello, MN)
Thank you Tammy. We had Innovative Catering Solutions cater our son's graduation party. He is our last one and we wanted to go out with a bang and do something a little different. With the help of Tammy, we came up with doing a brunch. Tammy stayed during the grad party and as needed, made fresh homemade waffles for our guests. She also had along fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream topping. Yum! To add to the waffles, she brought along egg bake. My guests raved about the food. They really liked that is was something different. It was really nice having Tammy there to make the waffles. We appreciate all you did for us to make this special day, extra special.

Tammy makes the most amazing potato salad! I have ordered her potato salad for both of my daughter's graduations and most recently to take to a "Spud Fest" picnic. It is always a hit and I am sad to say, there is very little leftovers after it has been served. Tammy is great to work with and we look forward to more potato salad!

Thanks again for the awesome salad!

Innovative Catering Solutions, catered our fall wedding dinner in the park. Tammy was awesome start to finish. She provided prompt replies to any of my questions whether via e-mail or phone. She also met with me in person at the site to get to know me and offer suggestions. She was helpful with planning the menu and flexible with any changes or additions as time went by. At the reception itself she arrived early to set up and provided great service through the whole buffet dinner. After-wards she handled all the clean up. The food itself was excellent! We heard compliments all night about her awesome desserts and the incredible scalloped potatoes!

The Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office and the Elk River Police Department hosted a Crime Free Multi-Housing Training on October 8, 2009 and used Innovative Catering Solutions, LLC to cater the lunch for approximately 30 participants and presenters. Tammy provided wonderful customer service offering various menus to choose from and timely follow through during the decision process. The quality of food was great. The lasagna and cake like brownies had a definite homemade taste to them. Tammy took care of all of the set up and clean up for the buffet area. It was nice to be able to participate in the training and not need to worry about the food, knowing it was being taken care of. Thank you!

Innovative Catering Solutions does weddings too! Tammy catered our wedding and it was such a wonderful experience as the moment she and her crew walked in, everything went perfectly. The bride never had to worry about a thing. Couldn't have asked for a better reception. My mother said the potato salad was the best she had ever tasted, including her own!

A few members of City staff were hosting a morning meeting which was expected to go well past lunch time. I was asked to order lunches in. I thought this would be a good opportunity to try Innovative Catering Solutions. I contacted Tammy and she gave me some ideas for lunches. The group of 15 was mostly male so I wanted the lunch to be fairly substantial. We decided on the croissant sandwiches – and brownies for dessert. The delivery was right on time – the feedback I received was that the food was very good and the servings large! The “nice big brownies” were a hit! Tammy is so pleasant to deal with and I know we will use her services again. Jo Thieling, City Clerk, City of Ramsey, MN

Innovative Catering Solutions provided the food for my son’s graduation party. Tammy was great to work with; very responsive, professional, and dependable. She did a fantastic job on the food and the portion sizes were very generous! The chicken sandwiches and potato salad were really yummy, and the graduation hat cookies were a big hit. I would definitely recommend Innovative Catering for any party needs.

Tammy Torborg from Innovative Catering Solutions, catered my daughter's graduation party, June 6, 2009, and what a trooper she was. Our party was rained out. Thankfully we had part of a roof over our pavilion which kept us partially dry. I thought Tammy was going to turn around and leave, but she continued to set up the food even when it was pouring out. She continued to be very friendly and professional. The food was Awesome! She received alot of compliments on the food from various guests. She stayed as long as we needed her, and thankfully we had a great crowd show up even with the rain. We had alot of FUN! I was very impressed with Tammy she took care of everything even when the surroundings weren't the greatest. Tammy helped me weather through and make the best of my daughter's day. Thank You Tammy, I really appreciated your kindness, professionalism, and commitment.

I will definitely use Tammy Torborg from Innovative Catering Solutions again.

Lasagna Menu a Great Hit!
Innovative Catering Solutions, LLC recently catered a graduation party for our three college graduates. It was quite a full day and I was relieved to be able to hire someone who would take the dinner portion and run with it. Tammy did an excellent job of this. Arriving on time, setting up, communicating well, and being social with the guests, Tammy served a beautitul meal that included lasagna, both beef and vegetable, salad, corn, and bread. All the guests let me know how good the food was, and I myself fell in love with the veggie lasagna as Tammy had included various vegetables that blended wonderfully together with her tasty tomato sauce. Tammy was very efficent and professional in how she handled herself and the meal, and when it came to any leftovers, she made sure they were well packaged and ready to be stored for our future use. Being able to be free to socialize with guests and not worry about the dinner confirmed my choice in hiring Innovative Catering Solutions. Thank you, Tammy, for helping to make our day be successful! I will be sure to spread the word about your good work. Joy Nadeau, Elk River, MN
Potato Salad As Good As Grandpa's
Tammy recently catered my grandson's graduation party in Big Lake. The ultimate compliment was paid to her. "That is the closest anyone has ever come to Grandpa's potato salad." Grandpa, who died at age 98, was famous near and far for his potato salad which has never been duplicated - until now. All of the food was delicious, presentation was great, and she did an excellent job of keeping the buffet area clean and well stocked. Thanks, Tammy, for helping make Justin's graduation day enjoyable. Pat Young, Isanti, MN

Graduation Party

Terrific Food and Service
Innovative Catering Solutions does a fabulous job for our company, AJ's Complete Automotive in Elk River. Innovative Catering Solutions provides cookies for our customer every week and our customers get to enjoy them when they wait for an oil change, brake job or A/C recharge. Innovative Catering Solutions provided catering services for our Open House this Spring. Innovative Catering Solutions prepared, delivered, set up and served the food for our Open House. The service was fantastic! Innovative Catering Solutions were on time, prepared, easy to work with and the food was, of course, fantantic! Our company has also used Innovative Catering Solutions for pre-made meals and delivered box lunches. Innovative Catering Solutions provided box lunches for one of our Commercial clients and they were very impressed with the food. The pre-made meals were just as impressive. Easy to prepare and wonderful to eat. I would recommend Innovative Catering Solutions highly for any catering event large or small you may be planning!

Wonderful Catering
Innovative Catering Solutions catered a 'girls night out' event at my house and Tammy was wonderful. She made our mouths water with the delightful cookies and scrumptuous cheesecake! Her professionalism shined from the beginning to the end. I would recommend her to anyone that I know!! Thank you so much Tammy! Carol S. Champlin, MN

Innovative Catering Solutions took care of my first child's high school graduation. We had 100+ people and she came up with an awesome menu. We had appetizers, a main meal (lasagna), desserts, veggies, and fruit. The trays were always full and no one went home hungry. Everyone loved the food and best of all I got to relax and spend time with family and friends instead of running around cooking. Tammy did all the set up, and the clean up too. The price was affordable and I have no complaints and can't wait to use her again. Thanks Tammy!! Janet Glover; Monticello, MN

Great Way to Impress a Customer!
I sell advertising for KLCI-FM, "Bob-106" Radio, and I used to just buy a box of donuts at the grocery store to serve during my Sales Presentations. Now, we hire Innovative Catering Solutions to "cater" the appointment with our potential clients and this is a great way to really impress a customer! Picking up a box of donuts is a thing of the past for me. Innovative Catering Solutions brings fresh fruit, delicious home-made sweet rolls and coffee... and by going "first class" with Tammy Tourborg of Innovative Catering Solutions, my advertising sales have improved! Ed Brady, "Bob-106" Radio (763)742-3142.

Pie Pie Me Oh My!
I had the pleasure of working with Innovative Catering for their pies during a wedding with my event planning side of my business. My client wanted to have a pie buffet for their halloween ball and the pies were simply amazing! Tammy and Innovative were on time with their delivery and the freshness of the product was very noticed. All the guests came back for 2nd's and 3rd's! Highly recommend Innovative and can hardly wait to use their services again. Michelle Thayer mochablue concierge

Review by Ginny of Accurate Billing Solutions
I have had food from this catering services at several events, two were at teh Elk River Arena for different things. the food was prepared and displayed beautifully and the chocolate fountain with friut was great. There were planty of options, all the food was fresh and highest quality. She also provides a great cookie tray at different dealerships and one is where I get my own care repaired. It's nice to have a treat while waiting for service. The carmael apple pie is the best I have ever had. You will not be disappointed with using Innovative Catering Solutions.

Efficient & Friendly Caterer
Tammy is very efficient and friendly. She's willing to work with you and your budget if at all possible. Her food is very tastey. I've used her numerous times and have had satisfaction each and every time. We also used her at my job for a Holiday party for 100 people - no complaints from anyone.  Connie M.  Big Lake, MN

Breakfast Meeting
Breakfast meetings every Tuesday with catering by Innovative Catering Solutions, has changed our Idea of skipping breakfast. Great food with friendly service. Food is always Hot and fresh. Tuesday mornings are now started off with a great breakfast and it helps us to stay focused with a good meal in our stomach. I would recomend them for any business meeting.

Excellent Food &  Desserts
We have used Tammy in the past. It was my wifes open house for her store. We had a great turnout, and thanks to Tammy the food was excellent. Her desserts are the best. Arlo G, Princeton, MN

Terrific Desserts
Tammy's desserts are incredible! As soon as I tasted her chocolate chip cookies I knew that they would be a wonderful housewarming gift for my Real Estate clients - and they have been a huge hit, especially since she delivers them warm - yum! She catered our Christmas open house with more of her delectible treats, and our guests raved about them! When I want great food, she is the gal I 'll call every time!  Shirley H.

Take & Bake Meals!  Excellent!
Is there not enough time in your day?? I know there isn't enough in mine. I met Tammy last week and fell in love with her frozen meal plan. It has helped so many working mothers still get a homecooked meal to their family. I own a Cleaning Buisness and offer 5 meals with a clean house what a great thing to come home to.. Clean house Home cooked meals. Buy today you won't miss the clean up!!! Thank you Tammy for a better Home Cooked Meal then I could ever cook, you saw my burned BRATS!!!
Thanks Tammy!!!  Jacklyn Christian First Op Cleaning Services Big Lake, MN

Take & Bake Meals Save Time during our Move!
I am so thankful that we decided to try your monthly meal plan to help out during our busy building/moving experience. Instead of dreading coming home from work each day to face the “what’s for dinner?” dilemma, we now look forward to choosing which delicious meal to enjoy. My family has been so pleased with the variety, quality and quantity of your meals. (Sometimes we get two meals out of one!)

You’ve made our meal time together so much more pleasurable, I’ve got a feeling we’ll want to continue enjoying the convenience of your home-made frozen meals long after we’re “settled in” our new home. Thanks for offering such a time and money saving solution!  Mary Lou McCormick; Mortgage Loan Officer Riverside Bank Monticello, MN

Healthy Take & Bake Meals
"Delicious, healthy, and convenient...that's why our family keeps ordering from Innovative Catering Solutions.  The menu changes every month and the customer service is incredible.  We made an order for 5 meals and Tammy had them ready for us the next day.  The meals are great at home and at the cabin."   H.K.  Minneapolis, MN

Good Sized Portions of Take & Bake Meals
Yes, we loved all of the meals!!!!  Very good sized portions and CONVENIENT.  Great job Tammy!!! 
Windy, Sherburne Tele-Systems, Big Lake, MN

Convenient & Flavorful Take & Bake Meals
We really love the convenience, flavor and the sizing of the meals.  They work very well for us.  And, the reason I used the sizing is because you broke the meals in 1/2 for us since it is just my son and me.  S.T. from Big Lake, MN

Thanksgiving Meal Catering
Just a short note to say thank you for the wonderful Thanksgiving meal you prepared for my family. Your food was better than I've ever cooked and the portions allowed us plenty of leftovers.  I was also able to spend more time with my family than any previous Thanksgiving! I have already bragged you up to my friends and patients and I will not hesitate to contact you for upcoming events.  J.B., DC Monticello, MN

Tammy's company, Innovative Catering Solutions, helped make my daughter's graduation party a major success! Tammy helped me in planning the menu, ensuring we had enough freshly-prepared food for our guests. What a hit! Everyone loved the taco bar and fresh fruit. The day was so much more special because the food was made with such care. Thank you, Tammy!

Innovative Catering Solutions catered for a group event our mentoring program was having.  They were very timely and showed up early enough in advance to make sure they had adequate time to set up before guests started showing up.  The food was delicious and the guests were pleased – some even took their card for future catering services.  They cleaned up everything and snuck out quiet as a mouse while the rest of the program proceeded as planned and it was nice not to have to worry about everything they took care of, from set up to clean up!

Tammy and Innovative Catering Solutions definitely will cater all of our personal and business get togethers. She went above and beyond what we expected. The food was incredible and her experience really shows when she arrives and has every detail planned out. Tammy exceeded our expectations and we will refer her to anyone that is looking for a great catering experience. Her take and bake dishes and prices are way to good to pass up on. Check those out.
