Happy Saturday to you!

We are STILL without power from Thursday evening due to the ice and snow (well, it’s out as I’m writing this on Friday evening from my in-laws’ couch). I’m hoping that by the time we wake up in the morning it’ll be back on and we can get back home to a warm house!

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

Homemade Sweet Potato Pie – This Sweet Potato Pie recipe is subtly spiced, has a layer of brown sugar baked onto the crust, and gets a little kick from bourbon.
