Best of the Weekend with Cupcakes



Stay Connected with Cooking on the Front Burner

TGIF friends! Are you glad the weekend is here?  What do you have going on?  With Easter just a week away, I need to starting thinking about what to make.  We'll be going to our daughter's and looking forward to spending time with our family.  Are you a traditional ham person?   What about side dishes?  Our family loves those cheesy potatoes with the crushed corn flakes so those are definitely on the menu.  And I doubt there will be any leftovers!

Raspberry Sherbert-Tini


Raspberry Sherbert-tini | Cooking on the Front Burner

Being the optimist (or maybe wishful thinking) I know spring, then summer, is around the corner.  Time to be thinking of some tasty beverages to enjoy on those warm days.  This Raspberry Sherbert-tini is a cool and refreshing drink perfect for sipping.  When you can, grab some friends, go on the deck and make a batch!

Carrot Cake Ice Cream

 
Homemade Carrot Cake Ice Cream | Cooking on the Front Burner

Do you have a favorite kitchen appliance?  Do you keep it out so you see it and use it?   I love my ice cream maker but sadly I don't use it enough.  But I'm about to change that by experimenting with some new recipes this year.  I bought a Cuisinart a couple years ago just because I thought I needed one and up until now, well, I've made about 3 ice cream recipes (and all vanilla!)   Today is number 4 and it tastes fantastic - a carrot cake in an ice cream form.

Best of the Weekend - Spring!



Stay Connected with Cooking on the Front Burner

Happy first day of spring!  It was a beautiful day here with 50 degrees and sun.  It's great to see the snow gone and the grass again.  And how was your week?  I spent 4 days on a business trip to Phoenix where I experienced temps between 80-90 during the day.  I loved it!  Cacti and trees were in bloom.  I also was able to catch up with a good friend who used to be my back door neighbor. Even though it's been 15 years since she moved, it's sure doesn't seem like it when we get together - we take up where we left off!
