My favorite BBQ recipes for dad:

Perfect Sides dishes for a Father’s Day Celebration:

peppers grilling on a gas grill
  • a bowl of shishito peppers
  • a pan of shishito peppers roasting
  • shishito peppers on a white and red plate

Dad deserves something sweet for his special Day:

Most dad’s I know have a bit of a sweet tooth. Make dad a tray of my Double Chocolate & Walnut Brownies packed with dark chocolate chips.

Maybe dad loves ice cream- try my Family Size Banana Split with dark chocolate hot fudge sauce. It’s the perfect dessert and dad can take the extra fudge sauce home with him.

Does Dady like a tart dessert? This Key Lime Pie cannot be beat. As a fifth generation Floridan, now happily transplanted out West, I can promise you this is the Best Key Lime pie ever.
