Hello hello!

Are you thrilled that Saturday is finally here? Was it just me, or did this week seem extra-long? My weekend is going to be a bit like groundhog day from last week… another Saturday afternoon playoff game to watch (!!) and Sunday dinner tomorrow. What are you up to this weekend?

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
