The Weekend Dish: 7/21/2012

Happy weekend everyone! I hope you are spending a couple of days relaxing and enjoying life. It’s been a week, hasn’t it? Time to take a deep breath and embrace the good in front of us. I spent a large chunk of time in the kitchen this week and have discovered more than a few new favorite recipes that I hope you loved as well. Tonight, I’m doing one of my favorite things in Pittsburgh during the summer – going to a Pirates game at PNC Park on Fireworks Night. You can’t beat the view of the city and the fireworks are always spectacular. The rain has cleared the weather is back to being pleasant; it should be a great summer night! 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!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Hot Corn and Cheese Dip – A dip loaded with corn, red pepper, jalapeno and lots of cheeeeeese! Totally irresistible.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread – An awesome way to use up the zucchini bounty from your garden. I was skeptical of the combination with chocolate, but it couldn’t’ be more moist and delicious; tastes like chocolate cake!

Filled Raisin Cookies – An old, old recipe from my grandma’s recipe box. Soft, sponge-like cookies with a thick raisin filling. Amazing!

Cheddar, Jalapeño & Chive Biscuits – Mile-high flaky biscuits that are packed full of cheddar cheese, jalapeño and chives.

DIY: Homemade Klondike Bars – A completely from-scratch recreation of a favorite ice cream treat. The best part? Only 3 ingredients!
