The Weekend Dish: 3/2/2013

Happy Saturday! I hope you’ve all had a great week and are in for a fabulous weekend. I’ve spent my week shuffling from couch to couch, drinking juice and mint ginger ale, and feeling pretty darn miserable. I hope a full weekend of rest will knock this sickness out of me for good! Needless to say, I don’t have any big plans for the next couple of days, so I’ll just live vicariously through all of you! What are you up to this weekend?

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

Gobs (a.k.a. Whoopie Pies) – Whether you call them gobs or whoopie pies, there’s no denying how delicious these cookie sandwiches are!

Meyer Lemon Loaf Cake – A lovely punch of citrus in wonderful loaf cake with a texture that is a cross between a sponge cake and a pound cake.

Sesame Chicken – I’m loving recreating Chinese take-out favorites at home, and this sesame chicken is definitely going to be a menu staple.

Macadamia Nut, Coconut & White Chocolate Blondies – I found a bulk bin of macadamia nuts and decided to pair them with coconut and white chocolate – some tropical flavors to bright up the lingering winter!
