The Weekend Dish: 11/12/2016


Hello, hello!

I hope you had a wonderful week and are enjoying a weekend full of your favorite activities! Let’s dive in!

Weekend Plans: We are having Dominic’s baptism tomorrow! My husband’s friend is the godfather, so he and his wife and little girl are coming in today from DC. She is 3.5, so I’m excited for Joseph to have another little friend to play with!

Fun News: The Dr. Oz show is doing a segment on holiday baking fails; they are going to be using a couple of my photos and I recorded a little video for the segment. It’s going to air this coming Monday (11/14) – check it out!

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:

Bacon and Egg Ramen (How Sweet It Is)
I saw Jessica post a picture of this on Instagram and immediately texted her because I HAD to have the recipe ASAP. I argue this could be breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Hot Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies (A Latte Food)
I am so ready for holiday baking, and putting these on my list!

Pumpkin Cheesecake with Brown Butter Gingersnap Crust (Two Peas and Their Pod)
A classic! I love the addition of browned butter in the crust…

Root Beer Float Cake (Beyond Frosting)
I made a root beer float bundt cake ages ago, but loving this totally different take on it. Can’t wait to try it.

Southwest Sweet Potato Tater Tot Hotdish (Pinch of Yum)
I had never heard of a hotdish before I read Lindsay’s post, but I feel like I might need to find and try every variation there is!

Have a delicious weekend!
