| We observe Father's Day on Sunday, June 19th this year. It's a day to honor fatherhood and a time to say thanks to Dad, to grandfather, maybe even to great-grandfather, if you're lucky enough to have one.|
The idea of a special day for children to honor their fathers began in Spokane, Washington in 1910. Other towns followed and people across America began observing a Father's Day. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the 3rd Sunday in June as Father's Day.
Since family cookouts are a very popular way to celebrate Dad's special day, here's an assortment of Dad tested and approved recipes, from salads to desserts. Some of them might be just right for that very special guy in your life this Father's Day.
Surprise him with a Father's Day feast that's fit for a king!
