The Weekend Dish: 9/17/2016


Is it seriously the middle of September already?! Last night I was in the shower and thinking if I needed to pick up any cooler-weather maternity clothes since I’m due on October 4th and then it was like I got hit with a brick – wait, it’s already the middle of September, I only have like TWO MORE WEEKS. Total insanity. On my list of things to do this weekend – pack a hospital bag! It’s only been on my to-do list for like three weeks, no big deal. What are you up to?

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

Rest Easy, Sweet Boy – My tribute to Einstein…


Skillet Meatball Parm – An easy skillet meal – awesome meatballs simmered in a tomato sauce and topped with lots of fresh mozzarella.


Apple-Cinnamon Muffins – These apple-cinnamon muffins pack a huge apple flavor thanks to apple cider and chopped apples, with a fabulous cinnamon-sugar crunch on top.


Friday Things – Gratitude, the new nursery, fitted sheets, tater tots, and some TV…

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:

Croque Madame (The Modern Proper)
Oh my goodness, so much amazing cheesiness! I could eat this for lunch everyday.

Diner-Style Pancakes with Bacon Butter (The Sugar Hit)
I don’t make pancakes nearly enough, and aren’t they always the best at a diner? Totally making this on a cozy fall Saturday morning.

Homemade Hamburger Helper (Recipe Tin Eats)
I have no idea when I last had hamburger helper (I had to be in elementary school!), but now I am craving this homemade version like crazy!

Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches (Celebrating Sweets)
Can you believe I’ve only had ONE French dip sandwich in my entire life?! This looks like perfect fall/football comfort food!

Spiralized Refrigerator Quick Dill Pickles (FoodieCrush)
I SO want to buy a spiralizer just to make these! Perfect for any end-of-season produce you need to use up!

Have a delicious weekend!
