The Weekend Dish: 3/8/2014

Happy Saturday to you!

I hope you had a great week and that your weekend is off to a fantastic start. Yesterday actually felt spring-ish for the first time here; it was awesome walking to the mailbox in just a sweatshirt, not all bundled up and my face half frozen by the time I got back. I love the snow, but I also love seasons, so I’m ready to usher in spring. I am more than ready to turn that clock ahead tonight; more daylight in the evening is one of my favorite things about the summer. Bring it!

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

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:

Bailey’s Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie (She Wears Many Hats)
Baileys Irish Cream, salted caramel and chocolate all in one pie? Heaven!

Fried Rice (Gimme Some Oven)
I love, love, love fried rice, but have never had a good batch at home. I can’t wait to try this!

Homemade Cheez-Its (Wheel N Deal Mama)
YES! I bet the homemade version is even more addictive than the store-bought ones.

Morning Glory Scones (Girl Versus Dough)
I was so excited to see these the same week that I made the muffin version. I love scones, so I can only imagine how amazing these are.

Nutter Butter Pie (Cookies and Cups)
Just hand me this pie plate and a fork. No sharing!

Have a delicious weekend!
