Wow! We are already in the last weekend of September, I have no idea where this month went!

Yesterday had to be one of the most perfect fall days in recent memory. It was drizzly in the morning, but by lunchtime the sun was out, and when I ran an errand near dinnertime in leggings and a pullover, the air was slightly chilly but the sun bright and warm in a picture-perfect blue sky. Absolute fall nirvana. I totally thrive during this time of year!

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

The Best Cornbread Recipe – This easy cornbread recipe is extremely moist, made with buttermilk and real corn, and it comes together in less than 10 minutes!

Squares of cornbread on a piece of parchment paper.

Chicken Parmesan – This easy Chicken Parmesan recipe is the BEST! Chicken cutlets are pan-fried to golden brown, topped with sauce and mozzarella and baked until golden brown.

Friday Things – Birthday milestones, Christmas ornaments and requests, Pinterest, golf, TV and more!

NEWLY UPDATED >> Buffalo Chicken Dip! I gave this recipe a facelift this week with new photos and lots of updated recipe tips and notes. Perfect for weekend game days!
