What the locals are saying


Courtney Carden came to our family in 2017. She quickly integrated into our family, providing a weekly sit down meal as well as preparing 'ready to eat' meals for the balance of each week. Courtney does the grocery shopping. During the holidays and for various special events Courtney has catered family functions as well as parties. She is professional and manages her business all on her own. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for dependable food service and preparation expertise.

Lisa & Tyler

Courtney catered our laid back barn wedding in SLO.

The menu consisted of BBQ Chicken, Mac and Cheese, Strawberry Salad and Garlic Bread. It was beyond delicious!People are still talking about the food. As our friends said “it was the best wedding food they ever had” and we agree! Courtney and her staff were very professional and they made sure everything went smoothly on our big day. Working with her was effortless. We highly recommend Courtney and her amazing food. She nailed it!
