The Weekend Dish: 1/23/2016


Happy Saturday to you!

Are in the path of the big snowstorm that’s hitting this weekend? We’re on the northern edge of the storm, so we’re not supposed to get too much, maybe a few inches. If you’re getting, I hope that you’re staying safe and warm, and enjoying some cozy snow storm activities like hot chocolate, blankets, movies, etc.! :)

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!

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:

Caramel Apple Dump Cake (The Novice Chef)
I love having some of these quick and easy dessert recipes stashed away!

Chocolate Caramel Marshmallows (Domestically Blissful)
I’m pretty sure I could eat 20 of these in one sitting.

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Milk Cake (Sprinkle Bakes)
Totally dying over this cake!! It’s gorgeous and I bet just as delicious.

Frozen Hot Chocolate Cheesecake (Chelsea’s Messy Apron)
Two of my favorites – hot chocolate and cheesecake – in one spectacular dessert.

Iced Amaretto Latte (The Drink Kings)
I actually tasted this drink and while I don’t usually drink coffee OR cocktails, I could have had five of these!

Have a delicious weekend!
