The Weekend Dish: 6/25/2011

Two of my biggest kitchen accomplishments this week were: (1) Making the pesto for my Portobello Pesto Pizza with basil that has been thriving in its container out on the deck (making something with an ingredient you’ve grown and picked yourself is so rewarding, I love it!); and (2) Somehow managing to provide you with ice cream recipes two weeks in a row that contain alcohol. Oops! Totally unintentional, but wow they’re both amazing. You definitely want to add them to your “to churn” list. Should be a nice weekend here in the ‘Burgh; hope you all are enjoying yours!

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 from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like too:

Cookie Dough Brownies (Gonna Want Seconds)
I think after my brownie round up I have them on the brain, and these look incredible. Layers of brownie, then cookie dough, then a chocolate glaze.

Homemade Twix Caramel Cookie Bars (Dine and Dish)
I am always a sucker for homemade versions of store-bought treats, and these bars look fabulous!

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes (Love From the Oven)
These are so stinkin’ adorable. I definitely need to give these a go.

Mocha Ice Box Cake with Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies (Eat Good 4 Life)
I have been wanting to make this cake since seeing it on Barefoot Contessa; I must get to it, looks so good!

Oreo-Stuffed Brownies (Sing For Your Supper)
I love that the Oreos are left whole and not chopped up in these brownies. Chocolate dessert nirvana.

Have a delicious weekend!
