Dad-Friendly Dinner Recipes for Mother's Day

Publish date:

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
