The Weekend Dish: 1/22/2011

I hope everyone is having a nice, safe winter and nobody has been too put out by the snow and ice. I’ve finally got my groove back in the kitchen and have been whipping up a nice variety of treats that I hope you’re enjoying. This week we saw some cookies, some salty snacks, and sweet desserts. Keep an eye out for the next two weeks – leading up to the Super Bowl will be tons of my favorite appetizers, dips, and easy desserts. My three favorite food groups!

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

Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies – A great cookie for snow days!

Maple-Bacon Kettle Popcorn – Unbelievably sinful and every bit as good as you might imagine.


S’more Nut Bars – All the ingredients for s’mores, plus peanuts, in a bar. Genius!

Banana Cupcakes with Vanilla Pastry Cream – Banana cupcakes topped with big scoops of vanilla pastry cream.
