Is it really the last weekend in January? I feel like we just took down Christmas decorations, and now we’re knocking on the door of the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day (and Mardi Gras!). Crazy!

You’ll be thrilled to know that I’m fiiiiiiiinally making my father-in-law’s famous eggplant Parmesan for dinner tomorrow, so I can take tons of notes and share it with you in the near future. So many of you have been asking for the recipe for ages, and I’m excited to finally be tackling it myself. It’s seriously the BEST eggplant parm!

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!

What I Bookmarked This Week

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

During my last round of blood work with my glucose test, it showed that I’m still anemic, even though I’ve been taking an iron supplement since my 1st trimester. My doctor wants me to up my nutritional iron intake, so I made a pot of this lentil soup since lentils are very high in iron, and it’s DELICIOUS!

These smoked ribs with honey butter brown sugar make me want to run out and buy a smoker!

Easy pound cake tiramisu would be a perfect last-minute recipe to impress company.

Adding Korean beef bulgogi to my list of must-make dinners!

Slow cooker chipotle bbq meatballs are going on my Super Bowl menu!

Have a delicious weekend!
