Back to School Recipes – Best of the Weekend 08-23-19

Do you get in a recipe rut once the kids go back to school?  After a relaxing summer of barbecues and taking our time with dinner, we are now returning to our daily routines.  Ugh…who has time to be creative with recipes now?  Luckily, many of you linked up recipes last week so I featured a bunch at this week’s party!

Welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party!  We are so happy you could join us!  As always, we invite you to link up your inspiring posts which may include DIY, crafts, recipes, home decor, tip and more!  Let’s get started…best of the weekend link party

Each week, when you link up to Best of the Weekend, your link will appear on both our blogs.  Let’s meet your hosts…



If you don’t already follow our blogs, we would love for you to follow us in some way:

Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week!   For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.

Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!

We always appreciate when we see people promoting our link party so Pin, Tweet and share away on social media!  Be sure to tag us so we can send you a thank you and give you a shout out at the next link party.



Since many of you shared recipes last week, I thought I would share an easy one of my own.  This one is great for after school snacks, lunch boxes or even breakfast on the run!
