40 Manly Recipes for Father's Day or Super Bowl parties
Even though my husband and I don’t have children of our own, we still love to celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. After all, we are still the proud parents of our (fur)baby! Don’t worry, we haven’t taken to celebrating the holidays on our own, but rather, we enjoy celebrating with either one or both sets of our parents.

Whether you are celebrating with your husband, your father, your father-in-law, or your grandfather, you are sure to find at least one awesome recipe in this list of Manly Recipes!

    Great line of of favorites for Mr to try. I believe his only requirement for a new recipe is, it must contain meat. That’s right no veggies for him.
