Hello the second weekend of August (how?!)…

Our weekend consists of pre-season football, baking, new recipes, laundry, errands, and lots of laughs. What are your up to this weekend? Tell me – what are you dying to make in these waning days of summer?

REMINDER! Have you made the no bake rosé cheesecake yet?! If so, snap a picture and email it to me or share it on Instagram (tag @thebrowneyedbaker) so I can feature it at the end of the month!

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!

Chewy, Chunky Blondies – These chewy, chunky blondies are filled to the brim with add-ins like chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, walnuts and coconut.
