Hello hello and happy Saturday!

It was a WEEK here with lots of running and Dominic keeps waking up at 5am (whyyyyyyy) and I hit an absolute wall by dinnertime on Thursday night. I put myself to bed at 8:45, which I can’t ever remember doing during my adult life unless I was sick, but boy did I need some serious sleep. SO! A relaxing, recharging weekend is planned; my mom’s birthday was yesterday so we’re celebrating tomorrow!

What are you doing this weekend?

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

Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting (From Scratch!) – This fluffy vanilla cake recipe is the absolute best yellow cake and paired with a silky smooth chocolate frosting, you can’t beat it for a classic birthday cake or any other celebration!
