Father’s day is right around the corner and what better way to show your love to dad than cook him a nice meal! I know that’s the way to my daddy’s heart and that’s what I plan to do to show him my love and appreciation for him and all he does for my husband and I!

Start your meal off with a few tasty appetizers.

Leek & Cheddar Dip


Next course up is the main event–make sure you make it spectacular. Try one of these recipes:

Barbecue Beef Brisket 

Finish off your meal with a spectacular dessert that will knock dad’s socks off!

Banana Walnut Cream Cheese Cake

Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars

    Such great ideas! I have to make those cheesecake bars! Not for my dad though since all of the men in my life are too “meat and potatoes” haha!

    Not sure it would be my father’s pick, but I really want to try that leek and cheddar dip! I know what I’ll be buying at the farmer’s market on Friday :)
