Happy last weekend of July! I don’t know how we’ve gotten here so quickly, but phew… this summer is flying!

Are you doing any vacationing or fun summer activities this weekend?

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

The Best Meat Sauce: A Special Family Recipe – This amazing meat sauce recipe hails from my father-in-law’s kitchen and is everyone’s favorite. It’s thick, hearty, and has phenomenal flavor thanks to a combination of beef, veal, and pork.
