The Weekend Dish: 11/28/2015


Happy post-Thanksgiving, last-Saturday-in-November!

I hope you had a great holiday on Thursday! I am still stuffed! That’s not stopping me, however, from eating leftover pecan pie. It works out incredibly well that I prefer pecan pie and my husband prefers pumpkin; there’s no overlapping when it comes to digging into leftover pie! Did you do any black Friday shopping yesterday? We stayed home and got started on some outside decorating since the weather was so nice!

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

Sweet Corn Spoon Bread – This riff on the popular JIFFY corn casserole includes an extra egg, which gives this version a creamy, almost souffle-like consistency.


Malted Pretzel Crunch – This malted pretzel crunch is quick and easy and the ultimate sweet/salty snack! Keep a batch of this on hand for the holidays, or package it up and give it away as gifts!

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:

Chicken Noodle Soup Casserole (Wine and Glue)
This is perfect winter weather comfort food!

Crock Pot Pierogi Casserole with Kielbasa (Daily DIY Life)
Pierogi always remind me of Lent, but I don’t think I’ll be able to wait that long to try this.

Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls (Crazy for Crust)
These have to be on a Christmas brunch short list!

Eggnog Poke Cake with Salted Caramel (I Wash You Dry)
Talk about taking poke cake to the ultimate holiday level – amazing!

Salty Sweet Caramel Snack Mix (Call Me PMc)
I am ALL over this! Great for game day snacks, holiday gifts or just keeping in the house.

Have a delicious weekend!
