I wish you all a happy and safe Easter weekend!

Please drop a comment and share what you’re planning to eat over the holiday weekend; I love to see what everyone makes – traditional family recipes, breakfast favorites, main meals, etc.

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Grandma’s Broccoli Salad – This easy broccoli salad is an old family recipe, loaded with bacon and cheese, and tossed in a creamy dressing.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake – This classic sour cream coffee cake is wonderfully tender and moist. It has a streusel-y cinnamon swirl running through the center and even more streusel on top, finished with a maple glaze.

Friday Things #517 – The start of spring sports, books, perspective shifts, living like a sunflower, and more…

What I Bookmarked This Week

My kids love orzo; I wonder how well these Greek chicken orzo bowls would go over, they look delicious!

It’s been a minute since I’ve made chicken enchiladas, and this recipe looks wonderful.

This chopped kale Caesar wrap reminds me of a wrap I used to get at a cafe in the hospital when Dominic was staying inpatient last year; I want to try this!

Salami and feta egg bites might be the nudge I need to eat breakfast regularly.

I am now completely craving an Olive Garden salad! I probably haven’t had one in 20 years.

Have a delicious weekend!
