Happy winter weekend to you, friends!

I hope that this week has treated you well and that your weekend is off to a nice and relaxing start. Do you have any cooking, baking, or house projects planned? I have a couple of recipes I want to re-test and hopefully will be sharing soon!

Enjoy the next few days!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

My All-Time Favorite Carrot Cake Recipe – The BEST carrot cake recipe! Super moist and subtly spiced with pineapple, raisins, coconut, pecans, and cream cheese frosting.

Southern-Style Biscuits and Gravy – This southern breakfast classic, biscuits and gravy, is made completely from scratch. Creamy sausage gravy smothers sky-high buttermilk biscuits for a stick-to-your-ribs recipe you’ll want to eat every morning!

What I Bookmarked This Week

This week, I saw someone make Ina’s vodka sauce on Instagram stories and now it’s on my list (I can’t believe I’ve never made it, actually!); her weeknight bolognese is delicious!

Chicken cordon bleu quesadillas sound amazing.

I’m sure I could take out at least a few of these sweet cheese buns in one sitting!

Sounds like a hearty, cozy meal >> Bolognese Stuffed Peppers

Love a super quick meal! >> 12 Minute Thai Chicken Peanut Noodles

Have a delicious weekend!
