Father's Day

Forget the "World's Greatest Dad" t-shirt. Give him ribs -- or a rib-sticking salad -- instead.

Clam in a Can

The Clam in a Can is a spicy, beery riff on an oyster shooter. It also brings a michelada to my mind. Be sure to get your cans very clean and very cold before making the drinks. (Photo: Davide Luciano for The New York Times)

Grilled Scallion Lamb

Here is a somewhat different take on lamb kebabs for the grill. The meat is bathed in a spicy-cool Asian marinade and threaded on skewers with whole scallions placed crosswise so all can be seared together. (Photo: Rikki Snyder for The New York Times)

Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes

Through all the breakfast fads, pancakes stand resolute, the definitive breakfast dish, something almost everyone loves and all of us should master. They are the indulgent heroes of the breakfast table: eggy, salty and just this side of sweet. There may have been struggles with burned bottoms and raw interiors in your past, but with a well-made batter and some practice with your stove, you can achieve pancake perfection.

Crêpes Suzette

This is just one of those desserts that seem, on the page as on the plate, to be labor-intensive and tricky, but in fact are as simple to make as they are gratifying to eat. For one thing, you can make the crepes in advance; they could sit, piled between torn-off sheets of baking parchment and well wrapped in the refrigerator, for a good three days without coming to any harm.

Mark Bittman’s Banana Bread

This banana bread from Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything" is really something special. One-fourth of the flour is whole wheat, which contributes a kind of depth you’d miss if it weren’t there. There are walnuts — not unusual, but again, you’d miss them if they weren’t there. And the key, secret ingredient, is coconut. (Craig Lee for The New York Times)

A Father’s Journey

At some point Dad, like America, changed. He found peace enough with who I am to insist on introducing my partner, Tom, to his friends at the golf club. Peace enough to compliment me on articles of mine that use the same three-letter word that once chased him off. Read the rest of Frank Bruni's beautiful story of his father's journey.

How Pot Helps Parenting

This Op-Ed writer swears he is a more loving, attentive and patient father when he take my medication as prescribed. Perhaps this isn’t surprising. As anyone who inhaled during college can attest, cannabis enhances the ability to perceive beauty, complexity and novelty in otherwise mundane things while simultaneously locking you into a prolonged state of rapt attention. Happy Father's Day! (Illustration: Kris Mukai)

Inshallah Is Good for Everyone

If you are a parent, you can employ inshallah (Arabic phrase meaning "god willing,") to either defer or subtly crush the desires of young children. Boy: “Father, will we go to Toys ‘R’ Us later today?” Father: “Yes. Inshallah.” Translation: “There is no way we’re going to Toys ‘R’ Us. I’m exhausted. Play with the neighbor’s toys. Here, play with this staple remover. That’s fun, isn’t it?” (Illustration: Jordan Awan)

Potato-Cheese Pierogies With Bacon

With pliant skins surrounding a rich mash of potatoes and cheese, Julia Hlinka’s pierogies are the epitome of satisfying northern Slovakian farm food. Instead of the traditional sheep's cheese, she uses American cheese — a reminder of her move to the United States in the 60s — which melts into the potatoes.

Home-Cured Bacon

You could simply rub the pork belly with salt, and seven days later roast it and call it bacon. But the real art is in adding elements of savory or sweet to create an original flavor. (Photo: Brendan Hoffman for NYT)

Duck Prosciutto

Consider using this cured duck, adapted from "Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking, and Curing," by Michael Ruhlman and Brian Polcyn, as a garnish for salad; as a canapé, on a bit of toasted bread spread with Dijon mustard; or sautéed like pancetta.

This large, fluffy pancake is excellent for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dessert any time of year. And it comes together in about five blessed minutes. Just dump all of the ingredients into a blender, give it a good whirl, pour it into a heated skillet sizzling with butter, and pop it into the oven. Twenty-five minutes later? Bliss.

Home-Cured Bacon

Bacon’s flavor, as with that of any charcuterie, directly reflects the meat that is being cured, so start with great pork belly from a butcher or a farmer. Ideally, the cut will be squared off and evenly thick. (Photo: Brendan Hoffman for NYT)

Beet- and Horseradish-Cured Salmon

This is a good first foray into curing because the process is simple and relatively quick and the reward considerable. Thanks to the beets, the color on the outside of the salmon is a deep, rich fuchsia. And don't be afraid to use fresh horseradish if you can find it; just be careful.
