Happy June! June is such a fabulous month for cooks here in Lancaster County. Our farm stands are filling up with such delicious produce. Peas, zucchini, strawberries, and more! I’m eating and freezing local strawberries! They are wonderful this year and ON THE MENU this week!

Tonight’s dinner is a huge family favorite! The Magic Rub on the chicken is a staple in our home. I make a big batch of it and have it on hand for all kinds of meat and even grilled veggies! Oh, YUM.
I make sure the chicken is dry. Dry it on paper towels and coat the chicken with Magic Rub. Then grill as you normally would chicken.
And if you make one thing on the menu this week make it my potato salad. Not bragging (well, yes I am) but it is the best you will ever eat! This is my number one most requested food to bring to a picnic!
I make grilled asparagus the same way I make it in the oven. Just over medium hot coals until a bit crisp.
TUESDAY – SOUP DAY
This week’s soup is really a meal! Rich and full of wonderful clam flavor… and bacon! As a treat I’m making Jordan Pond Popovers! When we went to South Harbor (near Bar Harbor) for a vacation one year we ate the most delicious popovers with homemade blueberry jam.
The kind people at the Inn at Jordan Pond were happy to share their popover recipe! This post is o-l-d! But the recipe is amazing!
I make these popovers a couple times a year and they are so worth the splurge!
They can be eaten with with something sweet, like jam, or even opened up and the soup poured in them. YUMMY!
The grilled salmon tonight comes from Natasha’s Kitchen! Grilled salmon tastes amazing! That little bit of smoke adds such a depth of flavor to fish!
I’ll serve tonight’s dinner in my very favorite wide soup-style dishes. Risotto on the bottom, then the sliced portabella and then a gorgeous piece of salmon on top, finished with fresh herbs. Oh so good and so beautiful!
THURSDAY- SLOW COOKER DAY
Tonight’s dinner is a favorite of mine! It’s easy to make and has such amazing flavors I don’t even miss the calories! I’ll make extra and have it for lunches! Tonight’s recipe comes Skinny Kitchen. Thanks, Nancy!

Many of you know my love of a perfect hamburger! Grilled. On a soft bun and lots of fresh lettuce, tomato, and a bit of chopped onion. Oh, and also mayo and a taddy bit of mustard!
Tonight I’m combining my love for a hamburger with a love for anything Tex-Mex! Don’t quesadilla hamburgers sound insanely good? I think so too!
I’ll ask Bobby to grill the hamburgers for tonight’s fiesta! Thanks, Jenna from Recipe Diaries.
Even if you don’t like vegetables you really should try the ones on the menu tonight! They are dripping in the most gorgeous balsamic vinaigrette! Truth be told I like but don’t love most cooked vegetables (except onions and asparagus). But I love love love these! No wonder, they are perfection in my book!
If Bobby is grilling we often throw veggies on the grill! There’s always room for grilled vegetables even if we don’t eat them for dinner that night. I’ll dress them and then pop them in the frig for lunches or put them in omelets or rice and more!
We now skip the fancy skewers so we can get more veggies on the grill!
Please try the vinaigrette as a marinade for meats and fish!
Believe me, once you make these they will change the way you look at summer grilling and vegetables!
Pasta Carbonara is more or less a pantry meal! I always have the ingredients in my kitchen! I think ever home cook should learn how to make this chef’s staple! Oh, it is delicious and so so easy to throw together and is company worthy!
The same sentiment goes for the Caesar Salad. We serve this salad most often here at StoneGable!

There seems to be quite a confusion when it comes to the terms “crisp” and “cobbler”. Although they are similar they are also very different.
