June 18th is Father’s day! Since some fathers “mumble” and complain about how their special day isn’t so special compared to mother’s day, I thought I would try to support the guys and share some simple, smart and tasty ideas to help you make Father’s day a little more special for the wonderful fathers in your lives. I’d like to take this opportunity to wish my own father… “Happy Father’s Day Dad!” ;-)
Cooking in the kitchen…
Well yes! This is one sure way to please your father. You can make a great breakfast to start off the day right or a wonderful snack to get him energized during the day. But there are so many more things you can do!
Let’s make him his favorite dessert!
What would this sweet be? Well in Greece there is a delicious sweet called “babades” which means “fathers”!! I think he might enjoy them since they are spiked with rum! Rum Babas! Serve them on a tray, preferably in the afternoon, at the time he may be enjoying a cup of coffee on the veranda…
Choose his favorite move and watch it along with one of his favorite “fast food” choices that you can make healthier and tastier by making it right at home all by yourselves!
Let’s go shopping…
Not together! Since it is quite well known that usually, dads don’t really like to go shopping.. Go on your own but what to buy? If he likes to cook… A book full of delicious recipes is perfect since it will add so much flavor and enjoyment to his daily life. If he doesn’t like to cook, you might make him even happier, if you give this present to your mom who will do all the cooking for him! I’d like to recommend my own cookbooks of course! “Now this… you have to taste” and “Just Chocolate” They are both full of some of the most delicious recipes you could find!
If you’re not up for it don’t worry a bit! I’ve already made them for you! Of course I’m talking about my signature line of cookies “Akis’ Cookies” A line of cookies with 4 irresistible flavors – Butter Cookies, Triple Chocolate Cookies, Anise and Pistachio Biscotti and Petit Fours with cardamom and orange. Cookies full of rich aromas that sent your mind soaring! They are perfect for any occasion and any time of day.
Let’s go out for coffee!
Spend a little quality time with your father. Go out for coffee or breakfast together choosing one of your favorite places! What? You don’t have a favorite place? If you happen to live in Athens, Greece that is, I have just the spot for you! It’s called “Kitchen Lab” which is located in Agia Paraskevi. It is of course my favorite café bistro where you can relax, talk, spend quality time and enjoy some absolutely delicious savory snacks and dishes as well as scrumptious sweets and desserts!
Happy Father’s Day to all the Fathers in the world and of course.. my very own dad!
