Hello friends!

I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start! I did some baking yesterday that I’m super excited about (sweet and salty brownies + another recipe that needs a little tweaking), and might do a little bit more today. Aaaaaaand I want to purge some cabinets in my kitchen, as well. I sort of fell off the purging/organizing train a little bit, and want to get back to it.

What do you have going on these next two days?

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!
