The Weekend Dish: 4/20/2013

Happy weekend! I’m not sure that I’ve ever been so relieved to usher in a Saturday. It’s been an emotional roller coaster of a week with all of the events that have transpired in Boston. I’ve consumed more ice cream in the last five days than I have in the previous five months. Whatever it takes, right? I was delighted to see that the Comfort Dogs had been deployed to Boston, just as they had been in Newtown, CT. I am just in love with that organization; it’s amazing how soothing animals can be. I hope you all have the opportunity to enjoy a restful and peaceful weekend with loved ones.

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:

Giant Peanut Butter Cup (Culinary Concoctions by Peabody)
A mini tart that’s actually an enormous peanut butter cup… I could eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes (Something Swanky)
These are so adorable! Love the sprinkles and “cherry” on top!

Jalapeño Cheddar Cheesy Bread (Confections of a Foodie Bride)
I can’t resist cheesy carbs; throw jalapeños into the mix and all bets are definitely off.

Soft Pretzel Bread Buns (Hummingbird High)
These pretzel rolls look exactly like the ones they sell at the bakery of my local grocery store. I can’t wait to make them at home!

Spiked Almond Joy Poundcake (How Sweet It Is)
Coconut, almonds, chocolate, booze AND cake?! Fork, please.
