The Weekend Dish: 10/27/2013

Happy Sunday to you!

I hope that you are having a fabulous weekend. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks over at the BEB HQ. My Chief Culinary Consultant has been quite sick, Duke is teething, I doggy-sat for my mom’s dog last weekend, and helped my sister move into a new apartment. No rest for the weary, right?! What have you been up to this weekend?

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