The Weekend Dish: 8/6/2016


Happy August weekend!

HOW are we here already!? I feel like I could say this every single week and it’s so cliche, but my goodness does time fly! To make matters worse, I keep seeing friends of mine on Facebook sending their kids back to school next week. CRAZY! Do you have any big plans for the last month of summer? Tell me what you’re doing and eating!

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

Strawberry Biscuit-and-Jam Cobbler – Cobbler-style biscuits are nestled on top of fresh strawberry jam and baked until bubbling and golden. A wonderful summer dessert!


Baking Basics: My Essential Baking Equipment – A huge run-down of all the pieces of baking equipment, big and small, that I keep stocked in my kitchen for everyday use, as well as special projects.

Roasted Corn and Poblano Chowder – Roasted corn and poblano chiles give this summer chowder a powerful flavor punch. It’s never too warm for a good chowder!


Cookie Butter Ice Cream – This cookie butter ice cream is a must for anyone who can’t keep a spoon out of a jar of Biscoff, speculoos spread or cookie butter!
