The Weekend Dish: 10/28/2017

Hello last weekend of October…

What?! I’m in serious denial that November is going to be here on Wednesday. I mean, wasn’t it just 4th of July?! Looking at the extended forecast, I think I can FINALLY pack away all of the boys’ summer clothes. I think the cool weather is here to stay.

In other news, I managed to catch the nasty cold that my entire extended family has been passing around for the last month, so that’s been absolutely zero fun this week. I’ll be convalescing over the weekend… what do you have planned?!

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

Brownie Cake with Cookie Butter Frosting – A fudgy brownie is baked into a cake then topped with Biscoff frosting. An easy dessert perfect for company!

Friday Things – A visit from friends, trip to an orchard, Halloween, turkey fryers, and more…

This is the absolute BEST rum cake you’ll ever make! It gets rave reviews all throughout the year, but especially around the holidays… if you haven’t made it yet, add it to your holiday baking list!

Thanks to a continued rotation of this awful cold that keeps passing through our family, we’re going to skip Sunday dinner this week.

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:

I could eat an entire batch of this everything bagel popcorn… and now I’m craving an everything bagel, too!

I’m not huge on pumpkin pie, so I always appreciate alternative desserts at Thanksgiving; this maple walnut bundt cake looks amazing!

I’ve never stayed at a Ritz Carlton, but I’m absolutely certain I need to try these Ritz Carlton chocolate chip cookies.

Yes, please! >> Caramel Apple Crumb Bars

If you have an Instant Pot, please make these chili garlic instant pot noodles and tell me how amazing they are and how I really need to just get an Instant Pot already ;-)

Have a delicious weekend!
