Hello and Happy Father's day out there to all the proud papas, grandfathers and amazing guardians out there!
Unfortunately, my father lives on another continent, so I couldn't be there to spend time with him, but that didn't stop me from sending a little care package with decorated sugar cookies,
Father's day is a great day to strap on the apron and whip up some tasty treats to spoil the special Dad figure in your life with some delicious home cooking. Below is a great list of five delicious Quite Chefy recipes you can cook for Father's Day.
1. Beer Braised Pork Ribs
If your fathers are anything like mine, then combining meat, beer, and the grill is a match made in heaven. These delectable, tender ribs are doused in beer and braised in the oven low and slow until tender. Smother in your favourite barbecue sauce and finish on the grill for melt-in-your-mouth goodness. Find the recipe and instructions for Beer Braised Pork Ribs here or read the blog post here.
2. Sunday Morning Rolls
Why not surprise the special dad in your life by making some homemade rolls for breakfast. The great thing about this recipe is that you make the dough Saturday night, and leave it covered in the fridge overnight to raise. When you get up, form and bake to fill your home with the mouthwatering aroma of freshly baked fluffy rolls and maybe even surprise him with breakfast in bed if he's lucky!

3. Meatballs in Curry Sauce
This is one dish my father has yet to try, but I hope to make it for him some day. It's certainly my husband's favourite. You can either use pre-ground pork or grind your own for these light and juicy meatballs in a creamy curry sauce. Serve with a side of fluffy rice for this delicious and beloved Danish classic that the whole family will enjoy. Find the recipe for Meatballs in Curry Sauce here or read the blog post here.
4. Chili Lime Shrimp Cups
These pretty little cups of tastiness are so easy to make, and can be prepared in advance. Serve them as a snack, appetizer or main course with a side of your choosing. The cups are filled with a spicy and creamy sour cream sauce and filled with arugula, baked cherry tomatoes and topped with tender marinaded shrimp that you can either grill or broil to perfection.

5. Sweet Treats
I couldn't choose just one sweet treat. If you have a dad out there with a sweet tooth, you've experienced that last piece of cake disappearing at 3 a.m. while everyone is asleep. You know, the ones who say "No thanks. I'm not really a sweets person." Yeah....suuure. I've picked out three great desserts you can make for your great dad (and hopefully yourself!).
Nothing says summer quite like strawberries, and this deliciously layered dessert combines fluffy sponge cake, light whipped cream and fresh strawberries into one delicious trifle. Find the recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Trifle here or read the blog post here.
This is one of my very first recipes posted to the Quite Chefy blog, and one that I got high praise for in culinary school. It's creamy, fresh and just fancy enough to make people think you're amazing. It's also absolutely delicious and a perfect dessert to spoil anyone, including dear old Dad. The bottom is a rich and creamy orange mousse topped with the fresh tanginess of orange jelly. You can serve with a dollop of whipped cream, candied nuts and a shard of caramel glass to take it over the top. Find the recipe for Fluffy Orange Mousse here or read the blog post here.
Of course, you could also do what I did and bake some tasty sugar cookies and cut them out in little hearts and to spell DAD. Decorate with your favourite icing or royal icing in an array of colours and patterns and serve them quick before eating them all yourself. Find the recipe for Perfect Rolled Sugar Cookies here.
And that's it! I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day out there with your families. If you enjoyed these recipes, then leave a comment below and share with your friends. You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as QuiteChefy.
