Hello and happy Saturday to you!

Super quick today because we have friends staying for the weekend and I’m squeezing this in before bed (also, Joseph was up half of last night with a nasty cough, so… YAWN big time!). Let me know what you’re up to this weekend! We’re planning some fun time with the kids at the orchard tomorrow!

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

Party of Five, Here We Come! – We’re expecting baby #3!

Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate Chips & Pecans – This easy, one-bowl pumpkin bread is crazy moist, loaded with spices, chocolate chips, and pecans, and freezes beautifully.

Cincinnati Chili – Cincinnati Chili is an easy midwestern classic and total comfort food. Slow simmered for hours and served one of five ways, it’s perfect cold weather food!

Friday Things – Hockey, walking, a gender reveal, AIM, and more…
