The Weekend Dish

Happy first Saturday of 2017!

How did the first week of the new year treat you? I sort of eased out of my holiday vacation slash maternity leave with a lot of time at home, and we got all of our Christmas decorations down and put away. The house always looks so bare and dark once everything is taken down. The big thing on the docket this weekend is the Steelers playoff game this Sunday – my husband is going to the game, but I’ll be hunkered down at home with a big bowl of chili staying warm! What are you up to?

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:

This chocolate peanut butter cup pound cake is a total dream.

I am totally making room for these crispy cheesy potato stacks on my next menu!

Easy cold brew coffee pie seems like a great way to get my caffeine fix… pie for breakfast?!

I need to make this Kentucky butter crunch cake for the Kentucky derby this year!

I’m a huge mushroom fan, so I’m thinking of keeping a batch of these sauteed garlic butter mushrooms in the refrigerator to add to meals throughout the week.

Have a delicious weekend!
