The Weekend Dish 2/2/2013

Happy, happy weekend! I hope that all of you had a great week and that your weekend is off to a good start. Tomorrow is the Super Bowl, which means lots and lots of menu planning! Are you throwing a party or making anything special for the big game? I’m planning to pop a loaf of the cheesy pull-apart bread in the oven and perhaps throw together a dip. Nothing too big or extravagant. What about you? I hope you enjoy some time with friends; stay safe if you’re in the path of snow this weekend!

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!

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:

Bacon-Wrapped Potato Bites with Chipotle Sour Cream (Tracey’s Culinary Adventures)
Bacon, potatoes and a spicy sour cream dip? Yes to all!

Gooey Chocolate Skillet Cake (Willow Bird Baking)
This reminds me of Texas Sheet Cake, but made in a skillet. Looks so delicious!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip (Shugary Sweets)
This dip has my name written all over it. I’ve had the chocolate chip cookie dough dip… I can only image how infinitely better it would be with peanut butter and miniature peanut butter cups.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies (Two Peas and Their Pod)
Maria always hits home runs with cookies, and these look totally amazing. Love the combination of salted caramel and chocolate!

Snickers Cheesecake (Mongolian Kitchen)
Yes, please! I’ll take the whole thing!

What was the best thing you ate this week??

Have a delicious weekend!

    No big plans for the Super Bowl here. Just looking forward to the commercials and halftime.

    That bacon jalapeno cheese ball – drool! Just drool 🙂
    I bookmarked Aimee’s Reese’s PB Cookie Dough Dip too.

    My husband has to supervise extra duty tomorrow (yay army!), but we’re not too bummed…he isn’t a football fan and my team (Vikings) isn’t playing, so no party or watching the game for us.

    Best thing I ate this week was a cheesy quesadilla with refried beans and a little garlic salt. How very basic yet so so good. I just found your blog this week and absolutely love it. It is such a good mix of comfort foods and melted cheesy things (my favorite) and good sweet stuff with peanut butter. I can’t wait to try a few in the weeks ahead. And I love how simple and clean and easy to navigate your blog is! I nominated you for the Homies award for the recipes + photography. Keep on inspiring!

    The best thing I ate this week was a plain and simple chicken sandwich but the chicken was freshly poached and the bread was an amazing loaf freshly out of the oven and made by my wonderful husband. Bit of mayo, bit of salt. Delicious.

    No Super Bowl party, but I will be cooking away! Going to Vegas later this week and I need to leave my Husband with some food so he will eat, plus blogging! Enjoy the big game!!

    Two best things I made this week were the Deep Dish Pizza Casserole from The Chew Cookbook and turkey chili with black beans and buzz from Portia Little’s Cooking with Coffee Cookbook over Cornbread Waffles. Hubby said I should be on TV!

    Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Enjoy the game and thanks for the cookie shout out!

    Happy Super Bowl Sunday! What team are you rooting for? It is all about the San Francisco 49ers here. Gotta love a former Michigan Wolverine as the coach!


    • Michelle on February 4th, 2013 at 12:24 am

      I was rooting for the 49’ers! Bummer!


      • Kimberly on February 4th, 2013 at 11:56 am

        I know! So disappointed that they could not get in the end zone on 4 tries at the end which would have won the game! Oh well…there’s always next year since this is a young team!


  9. Aimee @ ShugarySweets on February 3, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    There’s a big game this weekend? I’m stuck at my daughter’s swim meet, I would never have known 😉 Thanks for the shout out on my Reese’s Dip!


  10. Debbie on February 3, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    Love your blog and everything I have made is delicious! I always like to see the most e-mailed, most pinned recipes, etc. on your weekend dish. Are you not gonna post this any more?


    • Michelle on February 4th, 2013 at 12:26 am

      Hi Debbie, Oops! That section somehow got omitted this week; don’t worry, I will still be featuring those!


  11. Tracey on February 4, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    Oh my word, that Reese’s cookie dip sounds insane! i wish I’d seen this before I planned my menu for last night’s party. Thanks for including my potatoes, we actually did make those for the Super Bowl 🙂


  12. Kate on February 4, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    I am somewhat new to your blog. I am completely hooked, your recipes never disappoint. So, I’m just curious…when are you doing a cookbook?! I really hope you are thinking about doing one (unless I have totally missed something and you already have). Thank you, thank you for making me a better cook and baker!


    • Michelle on February 4th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

      Hi Kate, I’m so happy to hear you’re enjoying the site! I do not currently have a cookbook out, but stay tuned!
