Father’s Day is right around the corner and nothing screams “Dad” on a Sunday morning like freshly made pancakes. There is a debate raging in our household about who makes the best pancakes- the kid’s father or their grandfather.

Here are some pretty tasty recipes to secure the coveted “Best Pancake Maker Award” in your household.

I Love Candy!

Specifically, cotton candy. I know it’s childish, but it’s making a serious reappearance in a myriad of grown-up settings. Apparently I’m not the only one who still loves to nibble on a fluffy, sugary puff ball.

I have to limit my cotton candy exposure to sporting events for fear of tooth rot and diabetic comas, but I take pleasure in knowing that I could own this darling machine if I wanted to make it a daily habit.

Or if you wanted to add a little something special to your next party, most good party rental companies have cotton candy machines to rent for around $75.
