What's a classic Dad recipe? No idea really but pancakes, cookies, wings and things involving bacon seems like a good start.

1. Hazelnut Pancakes With Bourbon Maple Glazed Apples 

Freddy Guy's Hazelnut Pancake Mix from Oregon may be the best in the country.  Top a fresh stack of Hazelnut Pancakes with caramelized bourbon apples? We have a winner for Father's Day, Dad's birthday or heck, any Sunday. 

2. Pineapple Bacon Glazed Chicken Wings

Pineapple sweet meets bacon heat with these sticky, finger lickin' flavor bombs.  Make up a batch for the big game or an island inspired backyard cookout.  Make sure to wash it down with a Frozen Pineapple Dark n' Stormy.

 3. Shotwell Caramel Cookies

Pushing a caramel into each cookie before baking is an easy hack to elevate any batch of cookies. Our go-to? A handcrafted smoked butterscotch caramel from Shotwell Candy Co. out of Memphis, TN.

4. Bourbon Caramel Sauce

Stretch your last precious sips of bourbon into this delicious caramel sauce Old Grand-Dad can pour over anything from ice cream to fresh grilled peaches.
