The Weekend Dish: 3/9/2013

Happy weekend, everyone! I can’t believe that we’re already changing the clocks tonight and springing ahead an hour! I’ll gladly welcome an extra hour of daylight and sunshine! It must be that time of year, because I’m getting a serious itch to do some spring cleaning. From purging my closet to rearranging my Pinterest boards,  I’ve definitely been bitten by the organization bug. Do you have any spring projects that you’re planning to tackle soon?

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

Chocolate Truffle Cookies – Rich, chocolate-packed cookies with a shiny, crackly crust that will make you think you’re reaching for a brownie.

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:

Banana Cupcakes with Bourbon Butterscotch Filling and Toasted Marshmallow Frosting (Bakers Royale)
Could that description get any better?! I wish these were in front of me right now!

Dark Chocolate Vanilla Bean Marshmallow Cake (The Novice Chef)
I am dying over this cake, and I think it just made the short list for potential birthday cake. Heavenly!

Gruyere-Rosemary Beer Bread (Girl Versus Dough)
I love quick beer breads, and especially love this herbed twist with Gruyere. I could go for a thick slice with a bowl of stew.

Oatmeal Cream Pies (Cooking Classy)
I was totally a Little Debbie girl when given the chance to pick a packaged snack, so I’m thrilled at the idea of making some homemade oatmeal cream pies.

Sliced Pretzel Bread (Seeded At The Table)
The evolution of pretzel breads, buns and rolls over the last year or so makes me insanely happy. I need to make a batch; this bread looks amazing!

What was the best thing you ate this week??

Have a delicious weekend!
