The Weekend Dish: 8/11/2018

Happy happy Saturday to you!

It totally baffles me that we’re already nearly halfway through August, totally bananas!

I hope you’ve had a fantastic week and you have something good in store for the weekend. Today is an all-day kitchen/recipe day for me, so I’m hoping to finalize some great recipes for you!

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!

MY OTHER RECIPES

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Homemade Peanut Butter Cups – A homemade version of Reese’s peanut butter cups. This easy recipe comes together quickly and is great for gifting or stashing in your freezer!

Multiple peanut butter cups cut in half, lined up, cut side up.

Classic Baklava Recipe – A classic recipe for Baklava, the traditional Greek pastry made with ground nuts and layers of phyllo dough, drizzled with a spiced honey syrup.

Triangles of baklava stacked on a plate.

Friday Things – Isabelle’s baptism, back to school, raisins, sports, electronics, and more!

This Week’s New Recipe Video!

This Shepherd’s Pie recipe is an Irish classic! You can use ground lamb or beef, and the whole casserole is topped with beautifully browned mashed potatoes. Absolute comfort food at its finest.
