The Weekend Dish: 2/4/2012

As I mentioned earlier this week, the days prior to the Super Bowl are some of my favorite in terms of finding new and delicious recipes to try. I love appetizers and dips almost as much as I love dessert and sweets, so an excuse to make a ton of them always gets a thumbs up from me. I hope you’ve enjoyed the parade of dips (and mac n’ cheese!) this week, and maybe found a new recipe or two to add to your game day menu. What are your plans for tomorrow – are you hosting a party, going somewhere to watch the game, or are you ignoring football altogether? If you’re watching and eating, what’s on your menu? And finally, who are you rooting for? Here we’ll be hoping that the Giants come away with another Super Bowl upset!

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

Cheesy Jalapeño Pull Bread (Simply Recipes)
I have seen so many versions of this type of pull-apart bread around the web lately, but this is the first one with the jalapeño twist to it. I love it, and it would be perfect game day food.

Homemade Snickers Bars (How Sweet It Is)
Oh dear Lord, I need to have made this yesterday. Going straight to the top of my to-do list.

Mini Pretzel Dogs (Joy the Baker)
Sometimes when we’re rocking the outlet mall shopping, there is nothing better than a stop in the food court for a pretzel and/or a pretzel dog. I’ve been meaning to try them at home, love these!

No-Bake Chocolate Chip Granola Bars (Lauren’s Latest)
I used to keep a stash of Quaker chocolate chip granola bars at my desk when I worked in a cubicle jungle. These look about a thousand times better, and I can’t wait to whip them up.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Torte (Culinary Conconctions by Peabody)
I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest, and don’t know how I could have missed it. Everything about this recipe screams me!

Have a delicious weekend!
