Hello hello!

I hope you’ve had a great week! We’re all recovered from the cold we passed around last week, and life has returned to normal, thank goodness! It’s been HOT here, and is supposed to be in the 80’s until next Thursday, which I mean, if you like hot weather, that’s awesome. However, I have a list of soups I want to make, so I’d really love the fall weather to kick in here!

(Also, this totally reminds me of this time last year when I was massively pregnant and I felt like it was 90 degrees until the week before I had Dominic, so this is basically groundhog day.)

Be sure to check out my list of bookmarked links below – it includes three recipes I made for dinner this week that were total winners!

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!

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:

We devoured this cheesy taco pasta and it was so super quick to make, a great weeknight meal!

Chicken with mushroom gravy was another winner this week. I doubled the gravy, but ended up thinking it wasn’t necessary. Served it with my favorite mashed potatoes and green beans – it was easy and delish!

The winner of the week was definitely the skillet beef and broccoli ramen – we couldn’t get enough and even Joseph ate some of it!

This sweet and salty snack board is the best idea EVER for game days or any kind of party!

I cannot wait to make this caramelized onion dip, grab a bag of potato chips, and not share with a single person.

Have a delicious weekend!
