Happy post-holiday weekend to you!

A holiday in the middle of the week always leaving me feeling a bit disheveled and not sure what day it is, but yesterday was sort of like an extra bonus weekend day. Did anyone else feel like that??

We were all in recovery mode yesterday and had a low key day; today I am planning to bang out some work and hopefully relax a little!

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

July Bake-Along: Classic Pavlova Recipe – This classic pavlova recipe hails straight from Australia (thanks to the mom of a friend of a friend!); it’s a simple meringue dessert that has very minimal prep time and can easily be made in advance. Pile on a heap of slightly sweetened fresh whipped cream, top it with your favorite fresh fruit, and you have the perfect light and airy summer dessert.
