The Weekend Dish: 3/23/2013

Happy Saturday! It’s been a whirlwind week around these parts… house hunting, house offers, house inspections, oh my! Not only that, but next week is Easter and apparently we’re supposed to be getting “significant snow accumulation” on my birthday, which is Monday. I cannot remember it snowing on my birthday, ever! What the heck?! I’m starting to think that I’m living inside of a Game of Thrones episode where winter lasts years instead of months. I hope you have sunnier weather where you live!

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!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Popovers – I loved these puffy little pastries, plus they only take five minutes to mix together!

What I Bookmarked This Week

Recipes and posts from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like, too:

Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Easter Nests (The Novice Chef)
I love baking with coconut during the spring and these cupcakes are perfect for the Easter holiday!

Eggplant Parmesan (Table for Two)
My Chief Culinary Consultant’s dad makes an awesome eggplant parm, but I’ve never made one myself. This one looks so cheesy and amazing!

Oreo Icebox Cake (Cookies and Cups)
Icebox cakes always remind me of my grandma, and I love the idea of using Oreo cookies instead of graham crackers.

Salted Dark Chocolate Cupcakes (Gimme Some Oven)
I’ve never seen such beautiful cupcakes! I’ll take at least two, please!

Upside-Down Blood Orange Cake (Bakers Royale)
This cake is an absolutely gorgeous way to showcase blood oranges. A perfect winter citrus dessert.

What was the best thing you ate this week??

Have a delicious weekend!

    Best thing? It’s a toss up, either the pumpkin black and white cookies I finally got around to making from the Joy the Baker cookbook, or the portabellas with an amazing pepper sauce I had at this place called Short Order…

    I’m tired of the cold weather here in east Tennessee too – shouldn’t it be warm and sunny and spring-like by now?? Ugh. Anyway. We are in the first-time house-buying process too – we did our inspection on Wednesday and learned SO MUCH about our new home (and brainstormed ideas for painting, furniture placement, etc.)!! Isn’t it exciting? And I’m totally bookmarking those salted dark chocolate cupcakes. YUM.

    Made your fabulous Meyers Lemon bread this week and it definately was the best thing I’ve eaten all week. Good luck with the house!

    I experienced the best food ever at a restaurant in Monterey, CA called Montrio Bistro. Everything was the best I’d ever had from the braised short rib with spinach gnocci, lobster ravioli, fried calamari steak, pesto rubbed steak, and apple jelly donuts with cranberry compote and oatmeal cookie ice cream! It looks like I ate up the restaurant, but many were small plates we shared. Incredible food! Hope you have a fun pre-birthday weekend, Michelle!

    My husband and I have been complaining about this weather too. Its partly sunny here but Mondays forecast is snow. Enough already. The best thing I ate this week is a artichoke parsley walnut pesto with pasta. Yummy. I am planning on making the Tiramisu Cheesecake this weekend. I love the individual size portions. There so cute and makes it easy to freeze.

    Just put my Tiramisu Cheesecakes in the oven. While putting the batter into the muffin pan I got some on my fingers and thought I would lick it off so I could taste it. Oh its so good. I can’t wait to eat one later. Thank you for the recipe Michelle.

    The best thing I had this week was a Lemon Berry Trifle. It tastes like spring in a bowl. I keep going to the fridge to sneak little bites of it!

    We’ve already got a couple inches of snow here in Kansas City and it’s still coming down. I’m sending it your way. Happy Birthday!
