Hi, friends! I’ll be 100% honest, this roundup was supposed to be posted next week but I’m behind. You know when your behind on things and then Murphy’s law kicks in? I can thrive under tight deadlines and pressure, but that’s under optimal circumstances.
Like not working with new equipment, ingredients, and blazing heat of the day. I know excuses excuses excuses…. while I’m getting my sh*t together with new recipes peruse some of these great options for Father’s Day!
