It’s the week of Fourth of July, which means I’m scrambling to get the cow poop out of my yard, I’ve got to power wash my porch, I need to start juicing lemons for the millions of gallons of lemonade I need to make, and I’m looking for any way possible to use the metric tons of blueberries and strawberries I have in my fridge right now.

The Snoozer

First things first: Please git yerselves over to The Pioneer Woman Cooks and check out the above recipes for Freddy’s Burgers.

Freddy’s Burgers

My family loves—I mean loves—Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, otherwise known as “Freddy’s.” A location opened about an hour from the ranch a couple of years ago, and whenever we’re passing through for a soccer game or a grocery trip, it’s a treat to be able to stop and chow down on what is exceptionally delicious fast food.
