The Weekend Dish: 7/23/2016


Hello and Happy Saturday!

What do you have going on this weekend? I’m undertaking a big kitchen project today – trying my hand at homemade French baguettes! I haven’t tackled a real, authentic recipe before and I’m thinking it would go well with the roasted corn and poblano soup I have planned for Sunday. Do you have any kitchen projects planned?

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

Symphony Bars – I revamped this old recipe to use my favorite plain blondie recipe as a base, then topped with melted Hershey’s Symphony bars.


Baking Basics: Common Baking Substitutions – While I’m a big advocate of not making substitutions in recipes, sometimes it’s necessary. Here are some of the most common!


Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches – These Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are so easy to make at home – the meat is super tender and, most importantly, they’re ultra cheesy!


Cantaloupe & Cherry Frozen Yogurt Pops – These easy yogurt pops use fresh cantaloupe and cherries – so refreshing and an easy homemade treat!


Friday Things – Glucose test results, salt and vinegar chips, Nintendo, sprinkles, Instagram accounts, and more!
