One of my favorite things about menu planning is perusing lots of blogs and cookbooks for great new recipes! Oh, that is so much fun. I like to try new foods and ways to cook them. This week we have company coming so my recipes will be filled with added love!  I hope you find something on the menu that you want to try!

I love red snapper! And blackening it makes it even better. What a great recipe I found at Yummy Fixins. I’m using a little seafood stock in place of crawfish.



If you have an afternoon at home, this is such an easy to make dinner! And it is company worthy. I’ll be making this Chuck Roast from THE WICKED NOODLE for the first time and I can’t wait!!! LOVE the video!


One of my go-to food blogs is THE RECIPE CRITIC. Everything I make from Alyssa is scrumptious. This recipe is no exception! Chicken thighs are my very favorite part of the chicken! YUM!



I have a “sous vide”! It is the best way to cook PERFECT meat and seafood!

A sous vide (sue-veed’) is a heating element that heats and circulates water in a pot and cooks meats etc that are placed in a plastic bag and attached to the side of the pot. It cooks meat to a perfect temperature throughout and holds it until you need it. This is one kitchen appliance you just might want to look into!

See my sous vide HERE.


We are huge meat eaters here at StoneGable but I am trying to cook fish or shell fish twice a week. The key for me is to fancy-it-up a little! This mayo crusted salmon is scrumptious! This is a recipe to have in your recipe box!


I think if I could have a last meal it would include a fabulous hamburger and movie popcorn! I come by this craving honestly. Both my mom and sister love hamburgers like I do! They have to be juicy and cooked to perfection! And must have a plethora of fixing on them too! I can’t wait for these mouth watering burgers!

  • HAMBURGERS ON THE GRILL (look for a great way to cook hamburgers in an upcoming post) WITH FRIZZLED GRILLED ONIONS



This is THE BEST, and let me repeat… THE BEST apple cake you will ever eat. Just make it once and you will be hooked. Give this a try!

I’ve gotta try these 2 Ingredient Lemon Bars, YUM!

    I’m not sure what has changed, but I can no longer post your recipes to my Pinterest account. It appears the post goes through, but when I check, the recipes aren’t there. This started with the redesign to this page.

  2. Your menu is fab….. but the link for Pork tenderloin with apples brie and onion jam is broken….No directions
    Can you re post with your recipe

  3. Please repost the Raw Apple Cake recipe. It shows “not found, error 404”

    1. Try again, I fixed the broken link. If this ever happens again just go to the top of my blog and find the little magnifying glass on the right hand side. Type in what you are looking for it the post should appear. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I made your raw apple cake last weekend. I substituted pecans for walnuts because I’m not find of walnuts. It was wonderful! I loved how the crunchy top complimented the body of the cake. The recipe is a definite keeper.

  5. I love your delicious recipes! Thanks for planning our menus.
    I would love to know if you bought or made the cute leaf on the black and white napkins. So unique!

    1. Marilyn, how nice to get such a sweet comment. After a few complaining comments this really made me feel better! I guess some people don’t have a filter!
