Happy Saturday, everyone!

I’m wishing you a fabulous couple of days spent doing the things that bring you joy! Have a great weekend!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

44+ Valentine’s Day Dessert Recipes – This collection of Valentine’s Day dessert recipes has everything you need to celebrate on February 14th – including cakes, cupcakes, candy, cheesecake bars, indulgent desserts, and more.

Chocolate Souffle – Chocolate soufflé can sound intimidating, but all you need is a basic list of ingredients and a little technique know-how, and you’ll feel like a kitchen all-star when you pull this dessert out of your oven. It’s light and decadent at the same time, plus you can make a large one or individual ramekins, and prepare in advance for an easy dinner party dessert.

Quick weeknight dinners are my go-to, and I can’t wait to try this Mongolian Beef.

This Italian sausage orzo soup looks so cozy!

I’ve never made butter chicken, putting this on our menu soon.
