The Weekend Dish 5/24/2014

Happy long weekend to you!

I hope you have some fun and relaxing things planned for the next few days, and hopefully it includes some good food! We are just planning to do some things around the house and have our parents over for a little grilling tomorrow. I’m also bound and determined to eat my first soft serve of the year this weekend… it will happen! Whatever you’re up to, I hope you have a blast and are safe!

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:

Apricots & Cream Thumbprint Scones (Love and Olive Oil)
I just love scones and this hybrid thumbprint/scone with apricot in the middle sounds amazing for breakfast.

Coconut Brownies (Two Peas and Their Pod)
Last summer, toasted coconut dark chocolate chunk ice cream totally turned me into a chocolate/coconut combo fan, and I cannot wait to try these brownies.

Mango Vanilla Honey Push Up Pops (Heather Christo)
These are absolutely screaming summer to me. I want to eat one while sitting on my grandma’s front steps (my favorite place in the world to eat a push up pop).

Skillet Baked Ziti (Tide and Thyme)
Baked ziti is my number one comfort food; love the idea of making it in a skillet!

Slow-Cooker Honey Mustard Pulled Pork (Foodie with Family)
I am dying to do more pulled pork in my slow cooker this summer and this looks like an absolute “must” recipe.

Have a delicious weekend!
