Welcome Friends to my new website!

I am happy to be back cooking, and I am now offering 2 days of service, as well as Weekly Prepared Meal Plans, which will allow you to save on the cost of meals! This is all about providing stellar homemade meals, saving you from shopping, prepping, cooking, and cleaning, and giving you time to do other things you love! 

For those who don't want to commit to a subscription, I will continue to offer Al A Carte Menus, with lovely dishes for you to enjoy. All Meals will be ready for pick up on Mondays and Thursdays at Howden Market from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm at 1630 Webster Street @ 17th Street, Oakland. For the Monday menus, please order by Saturday, and for the Thursday menus, please order by Tuesday.

The meal plans are priced for single or double servings, however if you are a family and need service for more than 2 people, I will be happy to provide a quote. Further, if 3 weeks are purchased together, the price drops to $100 / week for 3 entrees, 2 soups, 2 salads, and a dessert! The first 3 weeks of menus are up, located in the drop-down menu under Weekly Meal Plans & Menus

When you order your Meal Plan, you receive 1/2 the order on Mondays and the other 1/2 on Thursdays, so the food is always fresh and ready to devour! Currently, orders are only available for pick up, and hopefully, if business allows, I can soon offer delivery. Pick up is Mondays and Thursdays from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm at Howden Market, my wonderful neighborhood market and high-end bottleshop, located at 1630 Webster @ 17th Street, Oakland.

The first weekly service is on Monday, December 11th and Thursday, December 14 and ordering is now open! With dishes like Fish Jorim with Salmon or Blueberry Braised Short Ribs over Polenta, I am excited for you to enjoy!  Howden Market is only a 1/2 block from where you picked up from me before, except now, there is a 20-Minute Green Curb to park in, and you can pick up a sensational bottle of wine to go with your dinner, along with other incidentals you might need... it's a one stop shop for all wonderful things! I will also host tastings and pop-ups here, and what I love so much about this, this is 2 small businesses supporting one another!

Other things I have going is the 3rd Annual HOLIDAY COOKIES, FUDGE, AND BARS EXTRAVAGANZA! Please visit S's Sweet Shop to check out my offerings and I am happy to ship my baked treats anywhere in the United States. I'm also able to make little gift packages, email me about this, so I can help you with your specific need at

A little about my food. It is always organic, locally sourced, and of the highest quality ingredients. I make all my own stocks, broths, sauces, salad dressings, pastries, etc. I believe in low and slow is the basis of a lasting relationship as well as tasty food. I love fresh herbs - so sometimes, you might find a rosemary branch. I have the need to cook EVERYTHING, so rarely does the menu repeat, but I do have some dishes I'm known for, and so those will be on more regularly, but never enough to bore you. My food is meant to be shared, so the portions are always generous. I love sauces... and from time to time, I will include my home baked bread in your order to mop it up. I am not big on substitutions, as I put a lot of energy and love into what I create. However, I am able to accommodate gluten free mostly and often dairy intolerant folks, I can generally find a work around.

Finally, some of you may be asking, what happened to my old URL, well when I thought I was closing my business, I shut down my website to save costs. I wasn't able to get my old URL back (they wanted a lot of dough), so that is why Steph's Good Food is now a DBA under Stephanie Cooks - so be assured... it is still me throwing down in the kitchen.

I am pleased to be back cooking once again for folks, as this is when I'm the happiest, as I am delighted when you enjoy! If you are interested, please check out what folks have to say about my food.

With Warm Regards,
Chef Stephanie
