The Weekend Dish: 3/19/2011

Welcome to another great Saturday! It was sunny and warm around these parts yesterday, making me more than ready for spring to arrive for good. Time to get my winter coats dry cleaned and put away for the year! Plus, the local custard stand I told you about last week? It opens tomorrow! Can’t wait for regular ice cream fixes :) This past week food blogging was mostly dominated by St. Patrick’s Day recipes, and I hope you found some great ones to celebrate with!

Now as always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy! :)

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes – Fashioned after the popular cocktail consisting of Guinness, Irish whiskey and Baileys.

Corned Beef Hash – A perfect way to use up any left over corned beef from your St. Patrick’s Day dinner.

Homemade Shamrock Shake – 100% homemade and 100 times better than the McDonald’s version!

Chocolate Mint Brownies – Fudgy brownies with a layer of peppermint patties in the center. Totally addicting!
