The Weekend Dish: 9/19/2015


Happy weekend!

I hope you had a great week and that this weekend is treating you well so far. I’m looking forward to another rainy Saturday – it’s so cozy and makes spending all day curled up in front of the TV feel a-ok. Maybe I’ll whip up some of my favorite chocolate chip cookies – I’m way overdue to stock up the freezer!

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

Cheesy Baked Ziti with Sausage – I’ve been making this for years and it’s my favorite baked pasta recipe.


Old-Fashioned Chocolate Layer Cake – Everyone needs a classic recipe for chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, and this is by far the best one I’ve come across!


The $250 Neiman Marcus Cookie – Supposedly an urban myth, this recipe churns out absolutely fantastic cookies loaded with ground oats, chocolate chips and walnuts.


Warm and Cheesy Bacon Dip – This is a hot and bubbly version of the popular loaded baked potato dip that I made years ago.


Friday Things – A rescue dog, Periscope, videos, old TV shows, and more!
