The house was full of family and birthday fun this past weekend! It is hard to get back to normal and have StoneGable be quiet again. But the soft warm memories of fun and laughter will fill that void for a little while.
Each day this week I am making recipes from other blogs and places on the Internet. I consistently find great recipes and delicious dishes that I just must try!
I usually try one or two things from the Internet each week. I love perusing all the great sites, learning about food and preparation techniques. The food photography is so exceptional! I consider the Internet my own personal recipe box!
Please join me and try some of these distinctive recipes that have caught my eye this week.

StoneGable Penne With Five Cheeses
Recipe: StoneGable Penne With Five Cheeses
I use Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa’s recipe and tweak it a bit! I think she makes consistently fabulous food! So I use this yummy recipe as a base and add 1/2 cup homemade pesto and cooked diced chicken (here’s where a rotisserie chicken comes in handy!) to the recipe. And the Penne is served in individual portions! I have a thing for individual servings!
Recipe: Ceaser Salad
This is a StoneGable staple! Please make your own dressing… it is sooooo much better!!!!Ceaser Salad (look on Tuesday’s menu) is an every week event! I make the dressing in bulk and freeze it in ice cube trays, pop the frozen dressing out and keep it in a large plastic container in my freezer. Then when I want a salad I just take out a couple of cubes, defrost them and dress a romaine salad sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
Friday: Soup Day II
Butternut Squash Soup With Herb Croutons
Recipe: Butternut Squash Soup
Autumn and a bowl! This is the best sounding soup from my very dear cooking friend at Butter Yum! This is a wonderful way to have a bowl full of good-for-you! If you have not been to Butter Yum, please go. It is one of the best on the Internet! Butter Yum is a delight for the eyes.. as well as the tummy!
