What are you doing for your Dad this year? You may remember the epic family cooking day from last year? Well, that was a late Father’s Day present and that’s exactly what we’re doing for Dad this year. He loves gourmet food, he loves family time and he loves connecting. Where better to do that than over a gourmet meal cooked by your kids?
We do a little spin on the meal though. It goes like this: 1) We pick out 15 awesome, mouth-watering recipes. 2) We design a trivia game just for Dad. 3) For every answer he gets WRONG, he has to discard one of the recipes. Last year, he ended up with an 8 course meal because my Dad is one smart cookie!
Here are some older blog posts that mention my dear Father … I Love My Dad , Wisdom from my Dad, Butterscotch Butterscotch Cake (Dad’s favorite cake), Hiking with the Fam’, Happy Father’s Day, Dad!, Nutrition Advice from my Dad, Hiking at Mt.Baker. Make sure to read the comments on this post (Mmmm…Caramels) from my Dad (about a Fat Flush diet). He is too funny!
I love the recipe idea! I think I will try it with my husband on is birthday 😉
your dad might have in mind a burnt sugar cake, it tastes like caramel. here’s the url for a receipe: http://southernfood.about.com/…

What a cute idea with the recipes and trivia game! I usually cook for my dad, too, but this year we’re all going out. I just flew in from Denver last night (and, boy, are my arms tired!), so Dad told me not to worry about cooking this year. (Isn’t that sweet? Thinking of me on Father’s Day!) I’d be happy to cook, but I think he wants a big juicy steak anyway 🙂
Your dad is great, Anne-Marie. I remember the “Wisdom from my Dad” post from last year and thought it was hilarious!
