Happy Saturday, friends!

I hope you had a wonderful week and have a great couple of days planned. Our week was very busy, so I am looking forward to some relaxing time at home this weekend with no commitments to catch up on things that fell by the wayside this week!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Hummingbird Cake – Hummingbird cake is an easy, sweet taste of the tropics with banana, pineapple, toasted pecans, and the best cream cheese frosting! In the post, you will find step-by-step photos, a video tutorial, recipe notes for converting this to a Bundt cake or cupcakes, and how to make it ahead and even freeze it. A beautiful spring dessert!

Cheesy Potato Casserole – This cheesy potato casserole, topped with crunchy cornflakes, is the perfect side dish for any potluck, holiday, or get-together! Sometimes referred to as funeral potatoes, this easy casserole requires only six ingredients and can be prepped in less than 15 minutes.
