The Weekend Dish: 10/24/2015


Hello weekend, nice to see you!

I hope your weekend is off to great a start! We hit up a local orchard yesterday afternoon for pumpkins (and kettle corn, ahem). We’ve had a couple of gorgeous cool, sunny fall days and it was great to take advantage of one! What do you have planned for the 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

DIY: Homemade Pumpkin Puree – If you don’t have access to canned pumpkin where you live or are looking for an easy kitchen project, this is easy!


Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze – A copycat recipe of the popular Starbucks pumpkin scones.


Cornbread Muffins – Fantastic cornbread in individual servings!


Pastitsio – The classic Greek baked pasta dish with beef, lamb, bechamel and lots of cheese!


Friday Things – Milestones, blankets, the future, hairstyles and more!


Sunday Dinner Menu

Appetizers TBD
Cheesy baked tortellini
Garlic bread
Tossed salad
Icebox cake (trying a new recipe!)

What I Bookmarked This Week

Recipes and posts from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like, too:

Cookies and Cream Oreo Fudge (Crunchy Creamy Sweet)
I need to make a “make more fudge” resolution for Christmas this year!

Corn Dog Pops (Hungry Girl por Vida)
Growing up, my very favorite amusement park treat was a corn dog, but I’ve never tried making them at home. Shameful!

Chipotle Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin Tacos with Cranberries and Apples (Food Faith Fitness)
The ultimate fall taco recipe!

Dulce de Leche Banana Bread (A Latte Food)

Vanilla Toasted Coconut Cashew Butter (The Suburban Soapbox)
Oh my, my head is spinning thinking of all the wonderful things I could slather this on!

Have a delicious weekend!
