The Weekend Dish 1/5/2013

Happy Saturday! I don’t know about you, but my days are all messed up. Having a holiday in the middle of the week totally throws me for a loop. Virtually every day for the last two weeks has felt like a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Hopefully next week I’ll be able to get myself back into some semblance of a routine. Until then, I’ll consider this one final holiday-ish weekend to relax and get myself organized and ready for the month ahead. As you’ll see by my bookmarks below, I haven’t stopped looking at sweets, or eating them, for that matter!

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!

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:

Bacon Wrapped Pretzel Rods with Brown Sugar and Cayenne Glaze (Creative Culinary)
Bacon-wrapped anything is phenomenal as far as I’m concerned; throw in a sweet and spicy glaze and I’m all-in!

Kit Kat Cheesecake Bars (Bakers Royale)
These bars are just stunning. Not only are they gorgeous, but I imagine they taste at least as good as they look!

Lasagna Soup (Closet Cooking)
I start craving soup big-time after the holidays, so I’m right on cue. I’ve seen many variations of lasagna soup, and this one looks absolutely spectacular.

Maple Bacon Biscuits (Confections of a Foodie Bride)
These biscuits are everything that is right with breakfast food. I’d love to have one in front of me right now.

Oreo Cheesecake Bars (Table for Two)
I seem to be craving cheesecake this week, right? Oreo cheesecake was one of my first cheesecake loves, so there is no doubt I’ll be making these bars immediately.

What was the best thing you ate this week??

Have a delicious weekend!
