The Weekend Dish 8/24/2013

Happy Saturday to you! I know the Weekend Dish has been on hiatus the last couple of weekends due to my traveling, but it’s back, chock full of links I think you’re going to love! Needless to say, the last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for me. I spent all of last week relaxing on the beach, and, most importantly, getting married! I’m back home now, working on getting into a routine. That may prove to take a little longer than usual since we just brought home a new puppy yesterday! Einstein got a new Golden Retriever brother; they are getting acquainted, we’re working on potty training, and there’s never a dull moment in our house :)  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

Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes – If you love chocolate, these cupcakes are going to be your new best friend. A super moist chocolate cupcake with a chocolate ganache baked right into the center, and topped with smooth, glossy chocolate frosting.

Bacon Pimento Macaroni and Cheese (Tide and Thyme)
Homemade mac and cheese is a total weakness of mine, and pimentos and bacon sound fantastic!

Ahh, the traditional Rice Krispies Treats recipe made with Corn Pops! Genius!

Hatch Chile and Bacon Stovetop Mac & Cheese (Confections of a Foodie Bride)
One can never have enough macaroni and cheese recipes, right?! I’ve seen hatch chile recipes everywhere lately; I have to try one while they’re in season!

Everything wonderful about s’mores in a slice of cheesecake?? Sign me up!
