Father’s Day was first created in 1910 by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington. The day was first celebrated on June 19th in 1910. In 1972, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation that officially made the third Sunday in June Father’s Day.
Father’s Day has now become a time to show appreciation for the men who have helped build our lives and families. It is also a time when we can express gratitude for their contributions to the family.
One way to show appreciation is to cook their favorite meal. Nothing beats an amazing home cooked meal! You can let them grill one of these recipes if they enjoy grilling. Or give Dad a break by grilling or cooking yourself. You can even have the kids help make some of these delicious Father’s Day recipes.
I have created a list of 40 Delicious Father’s Day Recipes. These range from steaks and chicken to venison and fish. There are even low carb, vegan, and keto options available if Dad is on a special diet.
