Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwich - creamy homemade ice cream with a chewy chocolate cookie - so refreshing! | Cooking on the Front Burner #frozentreat #dessert

You've heard the expression that some things are worth the wait, right?  And patience is a virtue? Well, this Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwich falls into those categories.  You could take a shortcut and buy the strawberry ice cream but trust me, you don't want to do that!  Roasting the berries kicks the flavor up a notch. And another ingredient that makes the cookie chewy and not brittle is reduced balsamic vinegar... curious?

Turtle Cheesecake Pie

Turtle Cheesecake Pie | Cooking on the Front Burner

Today I'm sharing one of the DIY Guy's favorite sweet treat combos with this Turtle Cheesecake Pie.  I'm not sure if any of you have Culver's in your area but that is usually where he heads to get his fix with a sundae.  So for Father's Day I decided to try making it more of a dessert with a no-bake cheesecake topped with all the goodies!

Rustic Grilled Veggie Flatbread

Rustic Grilled Veggie Flatbread - use your grill to make this easy pizza that is perfect for summer | Cooking on the Front Burner #pizza

Grilled pizzas came into my life about 15 years ago.  We were renting a cabin up in northern Minnesota with other friends in a cabin nearby and were taking turns making dinner for our families.  I'm sure I kept my night pretty simple with hamburgers and hot dogs but when is was my friend's turn, she wowed us with grilled pizzas.  I had never heard of making pizzas directly on the grill - I was hooked!  They were delicious and fun to make!  Now this recipe is not the exact one she made though I do make that one at least once a year.  Today's Rustic Grilled Veggie Flatbread is a new recipe that I think you will really like!

TGIF!!  Thanks for joining us!  Another week has gone by and tomorrow is the first official day of summer. What do you have planned?  Do you just like to chill out?  Vacation? Garden?  For us we like a variety of things.  We have a couple vacations planned, some gardening, bike riding, and of course just being outside and soaking in the sun!  I can definitely handle the heat much better than the cold.

Before you leave today, be sure to stop by here to enter this giveaway I'm part of to help Melanie celebrate her first year blog anniversary... you all could use $200 to spend at Amazon, right??

Salad with Lemon Parmesan Dressing

Lemon Parmesan Salad Dressing | Cooking on the Front Burner

Remember the other day when I said I my lemons might be jealous that I used some limes? Well today I'm letting the lemons be star of the show with this Lemon Parmesan Dressing.  I'm really loving all kinds of salads this year - anything goes - lettuce, spinach, berries, chicken, cukes, eggs and the list goes on and on - whatever floats your boat and tantalizes your taste buds.  Once you have that part figured out, you might want a dressing that you can whip up yourself in about 5 minutes.  Nothing wrong with bottled dressing - some of my favorites come from that (mostly from Trader Joe's) but when I have ingredients on hand, I like to make my own.
