The Weekend Dish: 4/12/2014

Happy Saturday!

I hope you had a fabulous week and are ready to enjoy some relaxing down time. We have some car shopping planned for today, and tomorrow I have a baby shower for an old friend. It’s been so long since I’ve been to a shower, I don’t know what to do with myself! The weather should be pretty nice here, so I might be able to bust out a cute spring dress!

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

Oatmeal Cream Pies – A recreation of a childhood favorite – perfectly soft and chewy with a cream cheese filling.

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:

Glazed Peanut Butter and Jelly Doughnuts (Half Baked Harvest)
If my 5-year-old self would have seen these, I guarantee I would have refused to eat anything else for at least the next five years.

Loaded Scalloped Sweet Potato Casserole (Family Fresh Cooking)
One of the most beautiful casseroles I’ve seen! I love scalloped sweet potatoes.

Punch Bowl Cake (Confessions of a Cookbook Queen)
I’ve already put this on the Easter menu! I love spring desserts that are light and fresh and can serve a crowd; this one certainly fits the bill.

Sweet Potato, Kale and Sausage Bake with White Cheese Sauce (Pinch of Yum)
I love that you could make this a side dish or an entire meal. So hearty!

Sweet Potato Tater Tots with Sriracha Aioli (Climbing Grier Mountain)
I must have sweet potatoes on the brain :)  I can’t turn down tater tots or a spicy sauce, so bring ’em on!

Have a delicious weekend!
