The Weekend Dish: 7/25/2015


Hello weekend!

I hope you had a great week and that your weekend is full of fun and soaking up some nice summer weather. I’m planning to do some baking today, and hopefully some relaxing, as well! I might even break out that rainbow blanket and crochet a few more squares… I’d love to get it finished up before the weather gets chilly again :)

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:

Baklava (Natasha’s Kitchen)
Baklava is one of my favorite pastries! I made it twice for holidays six or seven years ago, but lost the recipe. I can’t wait to make this!

Brown Butter Zucchini Coffee Cake (Two Peas and Their Pod)
My in-laws’ garden is bursting with zucchini, so I am trying to get creative with zucchini recipes. This one looks like a must, for sure!

Iced Coffee Soda (Crazy for Crust)
I love Italian sodas, and this coffee version looks fantastic.

Toffee Crunch Cupcakes (Bakers Royale)
One of the prettiest cupcakes I’ve ever seen, and I’m sure it tastes just as amazing.

Triple Chocolate Oreo Bars (Cookies and Cups)
I can’t resist an Oreo recipe; throw in some fudge and I’m sold!

Have a delicious weekend!
