Hello hello!

How is your weekend going? Are you doing anything to celebrate Father’s Day tomorrow? My husband requested burgers and hot dogs on the grill, so we’re going to be having a picnic-style Sunday dinner this week. I made a small dent in my purging last week, tackling two kitchen cabinets, and got rid of SO.MUCH.STUFF. Still so much to get through, but having free shelves is, well, freeing :)

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!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Red, White & Blue Stained Glass Jello Stars – Stained glass Jello gets the patriotic treatment with a combination of red, white and blue, and is cut into the shape of stars. A fun and easy treat for your 4th of July celebration!

Pretzel Strawberry Ice Cream Pie – A refreshing salty-sweet strawberry-vanilla ice cream pie with a sugar cone and pretzel crust, topped with fresh strawberry jam, hot fudge sauce, and more crushed pretzels.

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:

Angel food cake + strawberries and whipped cream was a summer staple when I was a kid, so I’m loving this triple berry angel food cake roll.

I’ve never had (or been to? not sure what the correct terminology is!) a shrimp boil, but I’m totally making these shrimp boil foil packs.

WANT! >> Milk and Cookies Layer Cake

Totally saving this American flag pie for the 4th of July! Gorgeous!

My summer needs this macaroni salad with smoked mozzarella and prosciutto.

Have a delicious weekend!
