The Weekend Dish: 6/23/2013

Happy weekend to all of you! I hope you’re enjoying a coupe of relaxing days and staying cool if it’s hot in your neck of the woods. We celebrated my grandfather’s 87th birthday yesterday with lunch and an Oreo dessert that I’ll be sharing with you tomorrow (Oreos have always been his favorite!). Today I’m going to work on weeding the landscaping in the front yard and hope I don’t melt! It’s our first serious heat wave of the season; I’m not acclimated yet! 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!

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:

Blueberry Lime Cream Cheese Pound Cake (The Novice Chef)
I’ve never had the combination of blueberry and lime, but this pound cake looks phenomenal… looking forward to trying it!

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes (Cooking Classy)
These cupcakes look like a beautiful burst of sunshine, perfect for summer!

Momofuku Milk Bar Chocolate Chip Cake (Hummingbird High)
I have never been to Momofuku, but I’ve had their cookbook on my “to-buy” list for ages; this cake just catapulted it into my Amazon cart!

Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam (Sugarcrafter)
I need to get my canning legs back under me this summer and this looks like a great place to start.

Wendy’s Copycat Frosty (Dine & Dish)
Ahhh, I LOVED Frosties when I was a kid! Then I became enamored with the Frosty Float when they first come out. I can’t wait to try this at home.

What was the best thing you ate this week??

Have a delicious weekend!
