Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts He’ll Love
Following behind Mother’s Day, the start of summer, and countless graduation parties, it’s really no wonder Father’s Day has a tendency to creep up unexpectedly. In the scramble to secure a present in time, in can be difficult to find one that shows Dad how much you care. To help speed up your hunt (time’s ticking…) we’ve tracked down 17 great gifts there’s still time to order—and, don’t worry, they definitely won’t look like an afterthought. Foodie dads will appreciate the ultimate breakfast sandwich maker and will be delighted to learn they’re now proud members of the cheese-of-the-month club. Musical dads will love lip-syncing along to their new Bluetooth shower speakers and will be happy to receive a turntable that converts their favorite records into digital music files. Mixed within this list, you may even uncover a few gems you’ll need to order two of—one for you and one for dear dad (I’m looking at you, watermelon keg tapping kit).
Flower Pot Cupcake Cones
This adorable and unexpected cone treat makes for a fun (and tasty!) baking project with the kids. And thankfully, the pre-oven prep actually results in minimal mess. Unlike cape pops or other multi-step sweets, our Flower Pot Cupcake Cones have a few simple steps: You actually bake chocolate cake batter inside each cone to create 24 individual cupcake, covered in a crispy, crunchy shell. Once the batter’s baked through and cooled, frost the top of each treat, roll the icing in crushed cookies, and add an edible sugar bloom to the top of each “pot.” It’s the perfect afternoon project to welcome spring.
Easter Candy Recipes to Use Up All Those Leftovers
Peeps, Reese’s Eggs, and even chocolate bunnies are folded, dipped, and sprinkled into these festive desserts.
Italian Baked Eggs
Consider a baked egg dish like this one for a hearty brunch entree that’s ready in 25 minutes. After baking toasting some mozzarella over a crusty baguette, you’ll brown turkey sausage in a skillet, then sauté onion and garlic. That creates a deep, flavorful base for the tomato sauce (a can of crushed tomatoes with fresh oregano). Simmer the sauce a bit, then crack four eggs directly over the sauce and bake until set. That last step, throwing the whole pan in a warm oven, takes just under 10 minutes, which leaves the perfect amount of time to pour coffee or orange juice and set the table.
