The Weekend Dish: 3/23/2013

Happy Saturday! It’s been a whirlwind week around these parts… house hunting, house offers, house inspections, oh my! Not only that, but next week is Easter and apparently we’re supposed to be getting “significant snow accumulation” on my birthday, which is Monday. I cannot remember it snowing on my birthday, ever! What the heck?! I’m starting to think that I’m living inside of a Game of Thrones episode where winter lasts years instead of months. I hope you have sunnier weather where you live!

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!

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:

Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Easter Nests (The Novice Chef)
I love baking with coconut during the spring and these cupcakes are perfect for the Easter holiday!

Eggplant Parmesan (Table for Two)
My Chief Culinary Consultant’s dad makes an awesome eggplant parm, but I’ve never made one myself. This one looks so cheesy and amazing!

Oreo Icebox Cake (Cookies and Cups)
Icebox cakes always remind me of my grandma, and I love the idea of using Oreo cookies instead of graham crackers.

Salted Dark Chocolate Cupcakes (Gimme Some Oven)
I’ve never seen such beautiful cupcakes! I’ll take at least two, please!

Upside-Down Blood Orange Cake (Bakers Royale)
This cake is an absolutely gorgeous way to showcase blood oranges. A perfect winter citrus dessert.
