The Weekend Dish

Hello hello!

Did you have a fantastic week? If you got a massive amount of snow where you live, I hope you’re all shoveled out and weren’t inconvenienced too much. We didn’t get much of anything here, but it has snowed a little bit off and on all week.

Tell me about your St. Patrick’s Day eats! Did you make anything special?

And are you following March Madness? It’s the only time all year I pay attention to college basketball. Only because I fill out a bracket for fun with my husband and some of our friends, but I’m ultra-competitive, so I refresh it like a mad woman for two days straight. Current standing: 19/24 picks correct and tied for 2nd place.

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:

While the name “garbage bread” may not sound appetizing, I’m sure I could devour the entire thing myself in one day!

I haven’t tried making it yet, but this certainly looks like the most amazing chocolate cake.

There might still be snow on the ground, but I wish this Reese’s ice cream cake was in my freezer!

I’m not a coffee drinker, but I’m PRETTY SURE this homemade toasted marshmallow coffee creamer could change my ways.

Burnt sugar fudge layer cake with peanut butter mousse? Yes, yes, yes!

Have a delicious weekend!
