The Weekend Dish: 9/17/2011

Brrr!!! Can you feel that rush of cold air that came blowing through the middle-Eastern part of the country this week? It put me in a total fall mood, and I jumped right in feet-first with pumpkin and making a list of more cookbooks that I want (it’s a never-ending list!). I have some more pumpkin, some maple, and a little salted caramel lined up for next week. I promise it’s going to be a delicious week, so stay tuned! While the cool weather brings some warmer food, it also brings hockey season, woo! I’m off to watch the Penguins practice and scrimmage this morning as they open camp. It’s almost like Christmas! Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

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 from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like too:

Basil Butter Garlic Bread (Two Peas and Their Pod)
I don’t make nearly enough homemade garlic bread, and this one looks to-die-for. Perfect for a warm bowl of pasta this time of year!

Hazelnut Apple Sheet Cake (T and Tea Cake)
This looks like a beautiful fall dessert, and I love even more that it’s an old recipe from grandma!

Praline Cake Squares (She Wears Many Hats)
Oh my goodness. This looks like the ultimate cake dessert. I want. Right now.

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream (Tracey’s Culinary Adventures)
I just put pumpkin ice cream on my to-make list for the fall, and this sounds like the perfect recipe!

Salted Caramel Frosting (Baked Bree)
This is something I’ve been wanting to try for well over a year, and I think seeing that cupcake is just the push I needed.

Have a delicious weekend!
