The Weekend Dish: 5/30/2015


Happy last weekend of May!

It’s so hard to fathom that we’re on the cusp of summer; I feel like I was just in the hospital yesterday with a newborn, and that was in the dead of winter. These last handful of months have absolutely flown by! I’m looking forward to some warm days and a few summer thunderstorms.

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!

I’m like a little kid and often order chicken fingers when I go out to eat, and these sound amazing!

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Milk Cake (Sprinkle Bakes)
This cake is absolutely a work of art, and I bet it’s just as delicious as it looks.

My husband was recently craving doughnuts, and while I hardly ever pine for them, this chocolate version looks right up my alley.

Hostess Cupcake Cake (Confessions of a Cookbook Queen)
This reminds me of the Ho Ho Cake that I love so much; I want to make this sooner rather than later!
