The Weekend Dish: 3/16/2013

Happy Saturday! Does springing forward leave your sleep schedule as out of whack as it does mine? For a few days after changing the clock, I was wide awake at night, but unable to drag my sorry self out of bed in the morning. I’m slowly getting myself back to a normal routine. Today, my Chief Culinary Consultant and I are out hitting the pavement doing the house hunting thing. Fingers crossed that we see something that knocks our socks off! If you’re out celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, have fun and be safe!

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

Mango-Pineapple Salsa – A totally refreshing salsa recipe with a little bit of a kick; a perfect way to welcome in the extra hour of sunlight!

Homemade Baileys Irish Cream – This takes literally 5 minutes to make and tastes amazing. Great for St. Patrick’s Day, the holidays or a hostess gift.

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:

Carrot Cake Bars (Cooking Classy)
I love carrot cake; if it’s on a dessert menu, there’s a 95% chance that I’ll order it. I love this easier version of cake in bar form!

Fried Ravioli with Cheesy Marinara Dipping Sauce (Channeling Contessa)
This is one of the best appetizers ever invented and I haven’t had it in ages. Looking forward to making it myself… yum!

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cupcakes (Bakers Royale)
I only have a couple more weeks of Lent (and my peanut butter sacrifice) and then I’m diving head-first into these cupcakes. So much peanut butter!

Reuben Egg Rolls and Thousand Island Dipping Sauce (Foodie with Family)
This reuben-in-an-egg roll is a fabulous idea; it looks amazing and I’m certain they taste even better.

Speckled Egg Cake (The Cake Blog)
This would make a beautiful cake for Easter dessert!

What was the best thing you ate this week??

Have a delicious weekend!
