The Weekend Dish: 1/15/2011

Let’s see a show of hands as to how many of you had a very snowy week this week. What started out as a predicted smallish winter storm here turned into three days of snow and, from the looks of the snow piled on deck railing, at least 8 or 9 inches of pillowy white stuff. Not that I’m complaining – I love the snow. So I was more than happy to enjoy some hibernation time in my favorite fleece sweatpants and watch it fall. While watching a winter wonderland outside my window, I also finally started craving sweets again and whipped up some tasty treats for you!

Now 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! :)

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Nut Rolls – An ethnic Christmas tradition for many. A wonderful walnut filling is packed into a soft and sweet dough.

Peanut Butter Cup Bars – Quick, easy, no-bake, and they taste just like Reese’s peanut butter cups.

Cashew Chicken – A takeout favorite that is easy to make at home, and absolutely delicious.

Apple & Cheddar Pupcakes for Einstein’s 4th Birthday! – Doggy cupcakes to celebrate my pup’s 4th birthday!
