The Weekend Dish: 6/18/2011

Another weekend is here! How was your week? Eat anything fabulous? Do anything fun? I’ve been spending a good bit of time in the kitchen, and have been enjoying coming up with some different spins on recipes; I hope you’re enjoying them! A couple of nights ago we went to see Aziz Ansari do stand-up, which was hysterical. For any fans of Parks & Recreation and Tom Haverford, if you get the opportunity to see him live, do it! Awesome show. Now that hockey season is officially over, I’ve taken to relishing the fact that the infinitely-lowly Pittsburgh Pirates are over .500 and giving us something to cheer about. I haven’t been much into baseball since I was a kid, so it’s been fun to watch!

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

Top 10 List: Favorite Bar Dessert Recipes – A roundup of my 10 favorite bar dessert recipes!

What I Bookmarked This Week

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

Bloomin’ Onion Rolls (Seasaltwithfood)
A quick way to jazz up regular dinner rolls – I can’t wait to make these! I love anything that involves cheese and bread!

Blueberry Cheesecake Tart (Cate’s World Kitchen)
This looks gorgeous – creamy cheesecake topped with loads of fresh blueberries. This needs to get into my summer baking rotation!

Crab and Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms (Life Tastes Like Food)
Stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite side dishes, and this version looks spectacular.

Grilled Potatoes with Smoked Paprika (Cookin’ Canuck)
These are some of the best looking potatoes I have seen in a long time. They look so crisp and tasty, and are grilled!

S’mores Cupcake Ice Cream Sandwiches (52 Kitchen Adventures)
Love this creative spin on a s’mores dessert!

Have a delicious weekend!

    I’ve never really understood why you do the weekend dish when I’ve seen all of you posts throughout the week…but I understand today…I’ve had a crazy week and haven’t had much time to read blogs. The review was a fantastic time saver. 🙂 Thanks

    Michelle, great list of recipes from your blog and others. I really want to try making your strawberry pie. Thanks so much for mentioning my grilled potato recipe.

    Another terrific week….I LOVE these round-ups! I am a die-hard Steelers fan – my hubby is from PA. I’m from Jacksonville, FL and my hubby is a JAGS fan! Go figure….

      Wow, that is crazy! Is your husband from Pittsburgh, or another area of Pennsylvania?


      • Ann on June 19th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

        He’s from right outside Pittsburgh….a place called Smithton. Ever heard of it?

    I love the idea of a weekly roundup! What a great way to share your own posts and your favorites with everyone. Thank you so much for including my s’mores recipe 🙂

    I’m going to go check out your strawberry pie now. I’m heading to the farmer’s market in a bit and I’m sure I’ll get some strawberries. If enough survive my snacking, I would love to make a pie entirely from scratch for the first time!

      Stephanie – I gotta say your cupcakes looked amazing! I was thrilled to see you made the buzzed top9 as well….congrats! It was well deserved!

    I love Parks and Rec! I’ll have to see if he’s doing any shows around Columbus any time soon. Also, I love the Weekend Update! It’s the perfect chance for me to catch up on your blog after a busy week. Thanks for the great recipes and links!
