The Weekend Dish: 1/30/2016


Happy last Saturday of January!

One whole month of this new year is already in the books, crazy! What do you have planned for this weekend? I’m spending some time in the kitchen today and we’re having our usual Sunday dinner tomorrow (and celebrating my father-in-law’s birthday!). I’m hoping to pick up work on Joseph’s rainbow blanket, too! It’s the never-ending crochet project!

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:

All-Dressed Kale Chips (Oh She Glows)
I made this recipe last weekend and these kale chips are amazing! My husband gave me the side eye when I told him I was making kale chips, then he tried one and was astounded at how good they were. Light as air, super crispy and tons of flavor!

Double Chocolate Copycat Kit Kat Bars (Boulder Locavore)
Yes, yes, yes! Love Kit Kats, totally want to try these.

Dulce de Leche and Chocolate Mousse Jars (Gastro Senses)
Could this title be any more drool-inducing? Take a look at the pictures!

Howsweeteats House Salad (How Sweet It Is)
Another one I made this week to spice up my boring lunch salads. I subbed cucumbers for the tomato, bacon for the pepperoni, added chicken, nixed the cheese and croutons (still on the Whole30), and LOVED it! So much flavor and such a great change of pace!

No-Bake Black Forest Icebox Cake (The Recipe Rebel)
I have such a soft spot for icebox cakes because my grandma used to make them all the time, and this one looks so incredible.

Have a delicious weekend!
