The Weekend Dish: 11/10/2012

Happy Weekend!

I hope everyone has had a great week and is off to a wonderful, relaxing weekend. I’m admittedly waaaaay behind on my holiday planning, and still need to get a Thanksgiving menu finalized! I have no idea how we’re already into double digits in November. I’m hoping to nail down the recipes and quantities this weekend and then start working ahead. Less than two weeks now! What are you making for the holiday?

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy!

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:

Baileys Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie (She Wears Many Hats)
I love the idea of stepping out of the traditional pumpkin and pecan pie ruts for Thanksgiving; plus, I’ll invent a holiday if it means getting to make this pie!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cut-Out Cookies (Bake at 350)
Oh my goodness. Bridget is the queen of cut-out cookies, and these just blew my mind. Also, she made them for Jessica’s 30th birthday – how sweet is that?!

Crock Pot Beef Carnitas Tacos (Eat, Live, Run)
I absolutely adore tacos, but haven’t ventured far beyond plain ol’ ground beef at home, so I’d love to give these a try.

Skillet Caramel Apple Pie (Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy)
This apple pie looks like the most fabulous dessert I’ve laid eyes on. A Thanksgiving must-make, for sure!

Vanilla Ice Cubes (Oh My Veggies)
This is incredibly simple, but one of the most genius things I’ve run across lately. Sweet, creamy, vanilla-speckled ice cubes. LOVE this idea!

What was the best thing you ate this week??

Have a delicious weekend!
