The Weekend Dish: 11/12/2011

A day-belated Happy Veteran’s Day to all of those who have served in our military and allow us the freedoms we enjoy each and every day. A great big THANK YOU!

Less than two weeks until Thanksgiving! How will you be celebrating the holiday – hosting it yourself, going somewhere? If you’re hosting (or helping to host), do you have your menu figured out? Next week I’ll be featuring a number of Thanksgiving recipes that were huge hits last year, so save a couple of menu slots for what’s coming, I can’t wait to share them with you!

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

30 Days of Gratitude, A Photo Challenge – A fun way to reflect on things to be thankful for during the month of November.

Cranberry Upside-Down Cake – A gorgeous cake that’s perfect for your holiday dessert table.

Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting – Classic pumpkin bars, fluffy and moist, and topped with cream cheese frosting.

Sweet Potato Pie – A great alternative to pumpkin pie – something a little different and packed with tons of flavor.

Pumpkin Ice Cream – Tastes like a piece of cold pumpkin pie, delicious!

    You are just too kind! I’m so glad you liked the cake slice – it was very, very tender. The King sure knew good food! 😀

    Yummy! I’m hoping to spend my Thanksgiving with my parents, since I haven’t in a few years. If my boyfriend can’t get time off, we’ll be spending it with his family! Love the pumpkin bars recipe. I need to make more pumpkin-based foods before Fall is over.
