Hey, friends! Did you miss me? I’ve didn’t post for a few days last week. There was a “perfect storm” in my life. First of all, we did have a legitimate nor’easter! That dumped about 8 inches on us here at StoneGable. And on Wednesday when I opened my computer the screen was a ghastly green! My computer died. By the time our township dug us out and I could get a new computer and set it up it was yesterday!
To complete the story none of my UBS ports worked with my new computer and setting it up at home was really a long process. But I’m back. NEW computer, thawing snow and so ready to get back to work!!
Today on Decorating Tips and Tricks we are talking about SPRING AND SUMMER TRENDS FOR 2018. We know you love trends too! So listen in below or go to DTT and listen to any or all of our podcasts!
Here’s what’s on the menu this week…
Chicken Piccata is one of my favorite meals. Delicious, lemony and easy to make. Treat your family to this company-worthy meal.
We are such carnivores here at StoneGable! And we love steak in all it’s forms!
Our family was here for a long weekend and my daughter Jacqueline made us this fabulous dinner using the recipes below. This is now one of my very favorite dinners! And guess what… she left the leftovers. Delicious and fresh! A must try!
Have you ever had Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang Shrimp? If not make reservations tonight and GO! Really, they are addictive and absolutely scrumptious. My son Christopher and I went to lunch on Saturday and shared a pile of them. I’m ready for a copycat version I can make at home anytime I want this delicious dish! Thanks, Dinner Then Dessert!
- BANG BANG SHRIMP
- SHREDDED LETTUCE
Salmon is a hearty fish that is heart healthy too. And it is even better when served with a sweet and garlicky sauce!
I must make my Perfect Roast Chicken at least every other week. That and homemade Rotisserie chicken. I found a rotisserie for $3.00 at a garage sale years ago and it makes the best darn chicken. Even if roast chicken is not on the menu I’ll make a couple (don’t make just one) and use the meat for lunches and other dishes as well as the carcass for stock. This is true home cooking comfort food. And it will make your house smell delicious too!

- MASHED POTATOES
- ROASTED CARROTS- put around the chicken and roasted in the pan drippings
Happy Easter! Our whole family usually gathers together for a long Easter weekend. And brunch is our big meal of the day.Every year we have the same cast of culinary characters.
Did you know we even have egg fights? Not the throw-an-egg-at-someone kind of egg fight. But egg fights none the less! And we crown the winner! Just a quirky tradition! Nothing says Easter like a good fight! Do you have any silly Easter traditions?
- SPRIAL HAM- I like Costco the best
- HARD BOILED EGGS
- PINEAPPLE CASSEROLE
- THE BEST POTATO SALAD… NO KIDDING!
- BUNNY BREAD
- FRUIT PLATTER
- CARROT CAKE
TREAT OF THE WEEK
Oh YUM! What better cake to make for Easter than a moist Carrot Cake!
Wishing you a scrumptious week and a very Happy Easter!
