Over here at Food52, Mother's Day brings breakfast in bed -- who's to say that Father's Day can't bring a long-cooked, sticky-fingered, hard-earned dinner? This Father's Day, join your dad (or, if you're a dad, your kids!) in the kitchen, and cook one of these dishes that will leave you glazed-eyed and happy, dishes that you wouldn't make on any given afternoon: dishes to make the day special. You deserve it.
