The Weekend Dish: 3/5/2016


Happy weekend to you!

I hope you had a fantastic week and your weekend is off to a great start! I’m thrilled because I’ve had things to do the last two Saturdays, and today is wide open. I’m looking forward to some down time and kitchen time without having to be anywhere. What are your plans?

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!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Snickers Cupcakes – These Snickers cupcakes taste JUST like the candy bar… A chocolate cupcake filled with peanut nougat, topped with a caramel buttercream frosting, covered in a chocolate ganache, chopped peanuts and a drizzle of caramel sauce.


Cheesy Potato Casserole with Corn Flake Topping – This easy potato casserole is creamy, cheesy and topped with crunchy Corn Flakes.


Homemade Crunch Bars – These homemade Crunch bars are SO easy and only require TWO ingredients!


Friday Things – Fevers, blanket projects, recipe snafus, pet things, and more…

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:

Blueberry Cream Cheese Swirly Bread (Lovefoodies)
I want these for every breakfast from now until the end of time.

Extra Crispy Spicy Fried Chicken (Meg’s Everyday Indulgence)
I never make fried chicken at home, but oh my! This looks perfect!

M&M’s Peanut Butter Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting (Roxana’s Home Baking)
Such a pretty cake, and I’m sure it tastes amazing!

Magic Custard Cake (White on Rice Couple)
In love with this cake, as well as their chocolate version!

No-Bake Homemade Tagalongs (Plain Chicken)
I could eat an entire box of tagalongs in one sitting, so it goes without saying that I need to make these. Plus, no-bake for the win!

Have a delicious weekend!
