Patriotic Treats


Patriotic Treat Recipes

If you haven't noticed Memorial Day is sneaking up on us so today I'm sharing some fun and easy treats for your holiday weekend!  I've collected some great recipes from some fellow bloggers that you are sure to enjoy.  Do you have big plans for the weekend?  I'm hoping for some nice weather to do some yard work including working on my flower planters. I love meandering around the local gardens and deciding what I want to put together.  Can't wait to get my hands in some dirt!

Best of the Weekend



Stay Connected with Cooking on the Front Burner

Welcome to Best of the Weekend!  Have any big plans? I'm crossing something off my bucket list this weekend and in LA for a 2 day food photography class.  I'm excited and a bit nervous.  I've checked around my neck of the woods for some sort of hands-on class but have not come across any. I especially like that this class is dedicated to food - the prep, styling, lighting, etc.  The class size is small with two instructors and it will be fun to be with folks who share my interest of food photography.  I hope to learns lots and write a post about my experience and some tips for you!

Mini Brownie Bites with Raspberries and Ganache  | Cooking on the Front Burner

We all know that April showers bring May flowers but did you also know it brings these fun flower brownie bites!  It's true... these just 'popped' up in my kitchen one weekend.  Well, I guess I did have to follow the recipe but unlike waiting for spring to come, you can have these ready for picking and serving in about 45 minutes!

Best of the Weekend - One Dish Wonders



Stay Connected with Cooking on the Front Burner

Welcome to Best of the Weekend!  I hope you had a great week and you are enjoying spring!  I love this time of year when our boulevard trees bloom - everyone has white snow crab trees and not only do they smell wonderful but they look like a white fluffy tree tunnel when driving by.  The blooms lasted about 5 days then last night we had one heck of a rain storm and now it looks like it snowed!  Oh well, guess I'll need to wait to 2016 for their next bloom time!

White Chocolate Pecan Oatmeal Cookies


White Chocolate Pecan Oatmeal Cookies | Cooking on the Front Burner

Pour yourself a big-o-glass of ice cold milk and grab these chewy white chocolate pecan oatmeal cookies to dunk in it!  Why? Well, I would love to have you help me celebrate my 15 year work anniversary that was last week on May 1st.  I couldn't let this occasion go by without some sort of celebration by treating my co-workers to some goodies.  They like goodies, I like goodies, and of course since I blog, I love to make goodies.  It's a win-win for us all!
