Hello hello!

Happy Saturday to you! We’re buried under blankets and hoodies here, as we seem to have skipped fall completely and gone straight from summer to winter! I have a big day of recipe testing planned for today; I can’t believe the holidays are just around the corner! What do you have going on 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!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Ask Me Anything! [2018] – The annual post where I open comments for you to ask me anything for 24 hours! Comments are now closed, but browse the questions and answers!

Broccoli Cheese Soup – This broccoli cheese soup recipe is easy to make and loaded with broccoli and cheddar cheese. A wonderful copycat of Panera’s famous soup.

Two bowls of broccoli cheese soup with sliced bread and shredded cheese on the side.

Tuna Noodle Casserole (From Scratch!) – A classic recipe for Tuna Noodle Casserole made totally from scratch – no condensed soup! It’s cheesy, loaded with veggies, and has a potato chip topping.

Friday Things – Field trip, naps, first teeth, pizzas, griddles, podcasts, cupcakes, and more!
