Cooking Dad: Staying Away From Processed Food

Junk Food Word Cloud Concept In Red CapsIt’s easy. It’s fast. We know it’s not the best for our family, but having it every now and then shouldn’t be a big deal. A cooking dad not only has to deal with the rigors of life and job, but creating a meal that isn’t made up of food-like substances. We all know that Mother Nature is best, but when we’ve been working all day and still have a million things to do, it’s easier to make something that came out of a test tube. The scary part ...Read more...

When Cooking With Daddy Just Isn’t Possible

One day I was in the kitchen making dinner when my kid came up and asked me to help with the cooking. Cooking with daddy has always been a favorite pastime in my house, but I had three pots on the stove, a baking dish in the oven, I was cutting vegetables, washing other vegetables and it just wasn’t a great place for a small child to be. One small slip and we’re on the way to the ER.

Take The Easy Way Out When Cooking For The Family

We all know that cooking for the family isn’t always easy. We’d love to have five hours of prep time to get in those tasty fruits and vegetables, but there are always going to be those days when time is not on your side. It’s easy to just give in and grab a cardboard pizza or order take out, but the quality of the food isn’t up to our standards and it can be way more expensive to eat out.

Why Everyone Loves Dads that Cook on the Grill

Dad GrillingWhen the weather starts to warm up and the grass turns green, my thoughts turn to steaks, chops and chicken prepared fresh on the grill. Everyone can’t help but love dads that cook on the grill. The grill is dad’s domain and we can’t wait for winter to flee, so we can haul out the grill and commune with the barbecue gods.
Propane versus Charcoal
There has been an endless debate about the merits and problems between using a propane grill and a charcoal one. Dads everywhere are undecided, but purists believe that charcoal is ...Read more...

Dad Cooking? The Stay At Home Dad

Father Preparing Family Breakfast In KitchenWhile I’ve been on the road, I’ve met a lot of different kinds of dads. Dad cooking has so become commonplace I’ve met dads that can make gourmet meals, dads that stick to frozen pizzas and dad that can make the classics with their own special touches.

We’re all open to cooking and having fun. I’ve seen a dramatic increase in the number of dads who stay at home while the mother works. Gender roles have changed dramatically over the last 20 years and no longer is dad the sole breadwinner. It’s ...Read more...

Dad’s Cooking His Signature Dish

SpecialEvery chef, every cook, has a dish that they are known for. It’s the dish that everyone wants them to make because it’s their signature dish. It’s their specialty. When dad’s cooking that special dish everyone shows up to dinner with bells on.

The signature dish doesn’t have to be something special. It just has to be something that you do well and that you can put your own special take on. It can be anything. I know one father that can make a grilled cheese like nobody’s business.

Men Cooking Lamb: Don’t Be Scared

Organic Grilled Lamb Chop On A PlateWhen it comes to a nice romantic dinner, you can’t go wrong with lamb chops. It’s a tender and succulent meat that tastes absolutely amazing. When it comes to men cooking lamb, we can get a little nervous. It’s unknown. We’ve all cooked beef and chicken, but no one on Hell’s Kitchen ever gets the lamb right, so what are the odds of us doing it?

It’s enough to give a guy an anxiety attack. The reality ...Read more...

Should a Cooking Dad Cook for Himself?

Couple fighting over a shopping cart - isolated over whiteI’ve written many articles about dads like us cooking for our families. By now, a cooking dad knows what foods his oldest loves and what dishes the wife won’t touch with a 10-foot pole. But have you ever thought of making your own favorite dishes?

I think as part of being a father and husband, we all make sacrifices for the greater good. You may love tomatoes, but the wife is allergic, so there are never any in the house. Maybe your children can’t stand fish, so you haven’t had that fried ...Read more...
