Happy Saturday to you!

We are birthday party-ing here today! We’re celebrating Joseph’s 3rd birthday with family, lots of food, and tons of fun. I hope the birthday boy enjoys his special day, and that you have a fabulous weekend, as well!

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

Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting – The best (and easiest!) chocolate cupcakes made from scratch topped with my favorite vanilla buttercream frosting recipe. A perfect combination!

Crispy Baked Chicken Wings – You’ll never believe these baked chicken wings were made in the oven! Super easy, crispy skin, meat that falls off the bone, and covered in a sensational dry rub. Perfect for your next party.
