The Weekend Dish

Happy holiday weekend to you!

Are you dying Easter eggs, hunting for Easter eggs, making deviled eggs or engaging in other egg-related activities today? We’ll be dying them here at our house, and I’ll be prepping desserts for tomorrow! I’m planning a Boston cream pie (new recipe!) and a fresh strawberry pie. I’m also making my grandma’s bacon and cheese Easter bread (yummmm).

I’d love to hear what you’re making/eating/doing this 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!
