What's dishing on the blogs: Chocolate and Cinco de Mayo

20. SR Chocolate Cake with Walnut Brittle

This week, we have chocolatey desserts, savory dishes and breakfast items! Here's what's dishing on the blogs we follow:

At Simply Romanesco, I turned to classic family recipes and made my grandma's epic Chocolate Cake with Walnut Brittle. Jessica from How Sweet It Is shared the perfect recipe for Pistachio Hot Fudge Cupcakes, and the Brown Eyed Baker went for coffee-packed Cappuccino Cheesecake Bars. Who needs coffee when you can have these sweet treats for that extra energy boost?

On the savory side, Katy fueled up on Savory Oatmeal with a Fried Egg in her BakingDomesticityandAllThingsMini kitchen, while Sincerely Caroline opted for gluten-free Classic Pancakes. Bill from Three Dogs BBQ put a twist on the traditional burger, and to take it a step further, Linda from Dinner Plan-it whipped up fancy Horseradish Bacon Cheese for Burgers. But if these options won't do it for you, check out Brown Eyed Baker's Cinco de Mayo recipes!

Finally, on the Pittsburgh restaurant scene, D&T: in the burgh tried the breakfast items at Square Cafe; Yum Yum revisited Park Bruges; Dan from Pizza Walk with Me spent the afternoon eating food from the Pizza Boat, and the girls from eatPGH are carbing up for the Pittsburgh Marathon.

See you here next week!
