Happy happy weekend to you!

I hope you had a great week and are settling in to a relaxing couple of days. We had a busy couple of weeks here with Dominic’s birthday and lots of appointments, but things have finally calmed down and it’s nice to catch up a little bit and get back into a little groove. I plan on doing some playing around in the kitchen today and maybe, MAYBE trying to tackle my pantry (it’s gotten a pick out of control and I need to reel it in a bit!). What do you have planned for the weekend?

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:

I made this one pot chili mac and cheese for dinner this week and it was a huge hit! I cut back on the cayenne, but it was still a little on the spicy side so I was surprised when Joseph devoured his. Although, if he thinks he’s eating pasta in any way, shape, or form, he’s usually happy, ha!

I will never, ever turn down tiramisu, so I’m saving this tiramisu ice cream cake for next summer!

Apple fritter pull-apart bread is SO happening!

Absolutely perfect for fall parties and the holidays! >> Slow Cooker Cranberry Spiced Cider

I’ll take an apple cinnamon roll every morning from now until Thanksgiving, please and thank you!

Have a delicious weekend!
