The Weekend Dish: 3/12/2016


Hello Saturday, nice to see you again!

I’m not sure what it was like in your neck of the woods, but we got to enjoy some absolutely fantastic weather here this week. It’s been in the 60’s and breezy, with some sunny days and some rainy days. Gorgeous! I went to the grocery store yesterday in a hoodie (no jacket!) and flip flops. Loving it! How was your week? What are you up to this weekend? Don’t forget to spring your clocks ahead tonight! :)

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked 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:

Baileys Cookies and Cream Parfaits (Homemade Hooplah)
An awesome spiked St. Patrick’s Day dessert!

Copycat Olive Garden Breadsticks (CincyShopper)
I pretty much lived for Olive Garden in high school and very well could have made a meal just out of their salad and breadsticks; I can’t wait to try this recipe!

Crab Rangoon Dip (Spend with Pennies)
My favorite add-on item to a Chinese takeout order is a batch of crab rangoon, so I am beyond excited to see this recipe!

French Toast Sausage Roll-ups (Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice)
I love, love, love pairing sausage links with pancakes and French toast and getting them soaked in maple syrup, so this was made for me.

Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake (Oh My God Chocolate Desserts)
Ever since I can remember, Oreo cheesecake has been my go-to cheesecake order. This takes Oreo cheesecake and sandwiches it between chocolate cake… divine!

Have a delicious weekend!
