Dad-Friendly Dinner Recipes for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is so much fun! Dads cooking (and not outside), kids making tchachkes, moms trying to relax while the dads are cooking and the kids are tchachke-making.

On Mother’s Day, invite over your mom and mom-in-law. Mine love to spend time with the kiddies—they think I am doing such a mitzvah by including them—and I am thrilled to have eager all-day playmates for the kids; it’s relaxing.  The only thing better than being celebrated is the opportunity to celebrate your moms and thank them for all they have done

While most dads are on Mother’s Day scrambled egg duty, my hubby has done many a Mother’s Day kosher bbq—even weather not permitting—we just eat inside if it’s too cold or rainy. So, for those dads (or moms) for whom brunch is a bore, or who just want to celebrate with a special dinner, here are some terrific recipes to try.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Roasted Chicken with Garlic

Lamb Chops with Pistachio Crust

Salmon with Black Beans & Salsa

Shish Kebab

Broiled Tomatoes

Herb Roasted Red Potatoes

String Beans with Almonds

Hey dads, what’s your best Mother’s Day recipe? Share, please.
