The Weekend Dish: 10/17/2015


Happy Saturday to you! It’s going to be downright frigid here this weekend (highs in the FORTIES!), so I’m not planning on doing much except for some baking today and a big pot of chili tomorrow. 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!

Apple Butter Cheesecake Streusel Bars (The Suburban Soapbox)
I totally underuse apple butter during the fall and these bars look amazing.

Baked Bacon Cheese Onion Dip (She Wears Many Hats)
Yes to everything in this dip… Yes, yes, yes!

I’m a one or two hot dogs a year type of person, but these? I could eat these every single week!
