The Weekend Dish

Hello hello! Happy MAY!

How in the heck did that happen?! Time just keeps flying on by!

What are you up to this weekend? I did 4 (FOUR!) loads of laundry yesterday, made a failed batch of cinnamon rolls (wahhhh), baked chocolate cupcakes and a crumb cake… so my plans for today include frosting the cupcakes, mayyyyyybe re-trying the cinnamon rolls, prepping an appetizer for tomorrow, and not doing a single thing after the boys go to bed so I can watch the hockey game! I hope you have a fabulous 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!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Caramel Tres Leches Cake – The best tres leches cake! Dulce de leche is whisked into the three-milk mixture and then swirled into the whipped cream on top.

Caramel Tres Leches Cake topped with fresh whipped cream.

Homemade Taco Seasoning – This easy homemade taco seasoning mix can be made in just five minutes! Keep it in the pantry for quick taco nights with no preservatives.

All of the spices lined up and ready to be mixed together for Homemade Taco Seasoning.

This Week’s New Recipe Video!

I’ve been trying to add a video to one recipe per week, and will keep you updated here when new ones are added!

How to Make Copycat Chipotle Chicken

Seemed like a no-brainer since Cinco de Mayo was yesterday, but we make this nearly every single week. This copycat recipe of Chipotle’s chicken is great on its own, in burritos, tacos, quesadillas, salads, etc. To see the full recipe, head over to the blog post >> Copycat Chipotle Chicken Recipe
