The Weekend Dish 4/27/2013

Happy Saturday!

I hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods and that you have some fabulous things in store for you this weekend. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on some spring cleaning of the online variety – getting my email inbox in order, streamlining my Twitter lists and Pinterest boards, and otherwise getting my digital files organized and backed up. If you have any tips for organizing your online space, feel free to share them below! Tonight, my Chief Culinary Consultant and I are headed to the Pittsburgh Penguins’ final game of the regular season, which means… soft pretzel!! What are you up to this weekend?

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

New York-Style Cheesecake with Fresh Strawberry Topping – A classic New York-style cheesecake is a recipe everyone needs in their arsenal – this is a great one with no water bath needed.

Crab Rangoon – One of my favorite Chinese takeout items! Crab and cream cheese-stuffed wontons are deep-fried and served with duck sauce.

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:

Angel Food Cupcakes (Cooking Classy)
As a kid, angel food cake with whipped cream and strawberries was one of my favorite summertime desserts. I love this recreated in cupcake form – they’re stunning!

Chicken, Black Bean and Vegetable Enchiladas (Cookie Monster Cooking)
Cinco de Mayo is next weekend, and these enchiladas look like the perfect recipe for the occasion.

Chopped Thai Chicken Salad (Pinch of Yum)
I’ve been trying to eat more salad lately, and this one looks packed with tons of great flavors. This will be lunch this week!

Honey-Peanut Butter Cookies (My Baking Addiction)
I’ve never had a peanut butter and honey sandwich, but the combination sounds amazing. Plus, I’m always looking for some type of excuse to break open the peanut butter jar :)

Triple Chocolate Chip Muffins (Tracey’s Culinary Adventures)
I love any baked good that makes eating chocolate for breakfast acceptable!

What was the best thing you ate this week??

Have a delicious weekend!
