The Weekend Dish: 9/21/2013

Happy Saturday to you! It’s a very wet and soggy one here in my little corner of the world, which means it’s a good excuse for holing up inside, playing around in the kitchen and getting some much-needed cleaning done. Now that fall has arrived, I’m in full-on nesting mode – I’m loving cleaning, organizing and warm spices in the kitchen! 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

Muddy Buddies [a.k.a. Puppy Chow] – Rice Chex cereal coated in a melted chocolate and peanut butter mixture, then tossed in powdered sugar. Do I even need to tell you how addicting it is?!

Caramelized Pear Tart – I gave pears a chance to shine in this apple-dominated fall baking world, and this easy puff pastry-based tart was incredible.

Apple Crumb Cake (From Brazil To You)
I don’t need many excuses to make crumb cake; throw in apple and cinnamon and I just can’t resist.

Holy Heck Brownies (Cookies and Cups)

Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Cooks (Mountain Mama Cooks)
A homemade peanut butter cup with salted caramel? Just send me the whole batch, please.

I’m looking forward to putting my slow cooker to more use this fall and winter, so I’m saving up recipes. This looks delicious and a great base for sandwiches, wraps or a salad.
