The Weekend Dish: 3/24/2012

Happy Saturday! I hope everyone has fully recovered from any St. Patrick’s Day festivities, and that you’ve had a great week. The weather has been crazy nice in a lot of places this week, right?! Did anyone bust out the grill? We are still down in Florida, staying for a few more days, celebrating my birthday tomorrow near the sand, sun, and surf. I’ll be back in Pittsburgh next week and won’t waste any time before hitting up Consol Energy Center for a Van Halen concert and a Penguins game next weekend. Woo! In the meantime, I’ll enjoy the last bits of Florida sun and some good eats!

Also, I finally joined the iPad world last weekend. So far I am loving it! Would love to hear what some of your favorite apps are – I’m still setting it up and finding new things to play with!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy!
