Hello friends!

I hope that you had a great week and are enjoying a relaxing couple of days! I’m planning to catch up on some chores this weekend, cleaning up and organizing papers; the mundane stuff! What are you up to?

Stay safe and warm! xo

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Traditional Focaccia Bread – A traditional focaccia bread recipe with tons of topping ideas that bakes up crisp on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. Perfect for serving with soups and stews!

What I Bookmarked This Week

Loving the glaze on this chocolate chip pound cake.

Totally trying this juicy pork tenderloin recipe; I always think they’re so dry!

We love pierogies at our house, so these sheet pan pierogies with caramelized onions and chipotle sour cream are definitely going on our Lent menu!

Looks and sounds so amazing! >> Caramel Butter Cake with Fudgy Chocolate Frosting

A classic and this version looks amazing! >> Pastitsio
