Best of the Weekend and Frozen Delights

Stay Connected with Cooking on the Front Burner

Welcome to Best of the Weekend and Happy 4th of July!  I can't believe it is July... I love summer and hope it doesn't go by too quickly!  We are ending this week with our yearly cabin trip up north in Minnesota.  We've had a great week of R&R, boating, fishing, eating and enjoying some tasty beverages.  Besides the DIY Guy, we are also joined by our daughter, her husband and our cutie granddaughter Miss Emily.  At ten months, she has been so fun to be around!  I hope you are enjoying your summer as well!
We are looking forward to seeing what you have for us this week.  Remember your hosts will have their own features - be sure to stop by to see them all!
