The Weekend Dish: 6/21/2014

Ahh, it’s the weekend!! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a couple of days of rest and relaxation. I wouldn’t mind a good rain storm, either, so I wouldn’t feel as guilty about doing the whole sitting around inside thing! I really need to pick my reading habit back up; it has been withering for a couple of years now and I miss it. I’d love any book recommendations you have!

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

Cream Cheese Pound Cake – My absolute favorite classic pound cake recipe. It can’t be beat!

Cheesy Bacon, Mushroom & Spinach Breakfast Strata – I’m not sure about you, but I don’t need any prodding to eat some cheesy carbs for breakfast! Plus, there’s vegetables!

Cream Cheese Cherry Pie Crumb Bars – These totally remind me of the Entenmann’s danishes that my grandma used to keep stocked in her kitchen.

Hushpuppies with Spicy Dipping Sauce – I’ve been in love with hushpuppies since I was a little kid, and I was thrilled to find out how easy they were to make at home.

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:

Bacon Cheddar Chicken Burgers with Guacamole and BBQ Mayo (FoodieCrush)
I typically go all beef when I’m eating a burger, but this chicken variation looks absolutely to-die-for. Plus, it’s on a pretzel bun!

Bacon Cheddar Jalapeño Corn Dogs (The Candid Appetite)
I’m feeling the bacon cheddar feelings this week :)  Corn dogs have always been an amusement park favorite of mine, and I love this gussied-up version.

Chopped Thai Salad with Sesame Garlic Dressing (Pinch of Yum)
This salad is so colorful! With all of those chopped ingredients, and the dressing, I could easily eat it every day for lunch.

S’mores No-Bake Icebox Cake (Completely Delicious)
I just made a version of a s’mores icebox cake, and I can’t get enough of either!

Tart Cherry & Coconut Milk Popsicles (Cookin’ Canuck)
Love, love, love this combination! Perfect for lazy summer days.

Have a delicious weekend!
