The Weekend Dish: 1/14/2012

After beginning the week full of delicious kitchen experiments, and then suffering through a few days of some not-so-fun flu-like symptoms, I was more than happy to usher in the weekend with a perfectly cozy, snowy and blustery Friday. I’m glad that ol’ man winter didn’t forget about Pittsburgh and decided to show up after all. I can still see blades of grass, so it’s not winter’s best showing, but it’s better than nothing. Today is also Einstein’s 5th birthday! Happy Birthday buddy! Stay tuned for some great homemade dog treats on Monday to commemorate the occasion 🙂

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

A Roundup of Best Recipes – A roundup of all of the “best of” recipes from 2011 all in one place.

Goody Goody Bars – A recreation of a Baby Ruth bar – chewy nougat and tons of peanut flavor! Plus, it’s a no-bake recipe!

Greek Custard Pie (Galaktoboureko) – A traditional Greek dessert – a citrus custard enveloped in phyllo dough and then soaked in a citrus syrup. Ah-mazing!

New England Clam Chowder – My favorite soup as a kid; I finally have an awesome homemade version.

Granola Cookies – LOVE these cookies – full of clumps of oats, dried fruit, nuts and coconut. They’re on the verge of being healthy!

Most Viewed Post This Week: Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes

What I Bookmarked This Week

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

Frozen Hot Chocolate, Serendipity Style (Picky Palate)
I’ve never had the famed frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity in NYC, but I hear glorious things about it. Since hot chocolate is one of my favorite cold-weather drinks, I can’t wait to try this!

Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich (Two Peas and Their Pod)
I love grilled cheese sandwiches and I love guacamole; awesome idea to put the two together!

Light Mushroom Lasagna (Ezra Pound Cake)
Mushrooms and pasta together are a secret love of mine. Throw in cheese? I’m all in!

S’mores Truffles (My Baking Addiction)
Everything I love about s’mores in a cute little ball. Perfect for summer picnics.

Twice Baked Potato Casserole (Sippity Sup)
Oh I could absolutely see this becoming a crowd favorite at holidays. Can’t wait to try it!

Have a delicious weekend!

    love your site and all the recipes….I was interested in making a peanut butter and jelly cupcake but didn’t see a recipe for it on your site have you ever attempted to make one? I would love to use your peanut butter frosting

    Old man winter just showed up (fashionably late) here in upstate NY. I didn’t mind waiting! 🙂

    I’ve had the real Serendipity Frozen Hot Chocolate and it is TDF. I can’t wait to make my own. Your blog looks so good. So many yummy things to choose from. I adore your weekly posts with all the recipes you’ve seen. A pre-cursor to what we will see on Brown Eyed Baker.
