8 delicious breakfast in bed recipes for father's day

You don't need to be the next Master Chef to be able to cook these meals.


Every year I always cook my dad breakfast for Father's Day. I try to not do the same meal each year so I tend to try out different recipes. Most of the recipes that I listed don't require a ton of effort or ingredients but can really make your dad happy on Father's Day. Let's get cooking!

1. Perfect buttermilk pancakes

Perfect Pancakes


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 1/4 cups milk

1 egg

3 tablespoons butter, melted


1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

2, Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

2. Scrumptious crepes

Scrumptious Crepes


1 cup all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons granulated white sugar

2 large eggs (room temperature)

1 1/4 cup milk (room temperature)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)

2 tablespoons melted butter, cooled to room temperature


1. Place all the ingredients in your blender or food processor and process for about 15-30 seconds or until smooth. Then cover and let sit at room temperature about 15-30 minutes.

3. Heat a 9 inch (23 cm) non stick frying pan or crepe pan over medium heat. Lightly butter the the pan.

4. Lift the pan from the heat and, using a small ladle or scoop, pour about 3-4 tablespoons of the batter into the center of the hot pan. Tilt and swirl the pan so the batter forms an even layer. Cook for about 1-2 minutes.

5. Flip the crepe and continue to cook for about 15-30 seconds or until you have brown spots over the surface. Remove from heat and place on a plate or wire rack.

6. Fill crepes with whatever you want. This includes cut up fruit, jam, nutella, etc.

3. Delicious omelet

Delicious Omelet


3 Eggs

1/2 Red bell pepper

1/2 Green bell pepper

1/4-1/2 Cup cheese

1/4 Cup onion

1 Tablespoon water

1 Tablespoon butter

1 Teaspoon butter


1. Slice and chop peppers and onions into bite-sized pieces.

3. While the vegetables saute, scramble the three eggs and 1tablespoon of water in a mixing bowl.

4. Preheat a frying pan over just under medium heat. Coat the pan with 1 teaspoon of butter. Pour in egg mixture. Watch the egg mixture. When you look through the clear egg "windows" and see white or yellow cooked egg at the bottom, a base has formed for the omelet.

5. Spread the pepper and onion mixture over half the egg mixture. Spread the shredded cheese over the other half. Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes. When the cheese is melted and there is no runny egg in the omelet, use a spatula to fold the cheese half over and onto the pepper and onion half.

7 Types Of Moms You'll See During Move-In Day

Which one is your mom?

Move-in week is approaching friends! In a short few days, we will all be piling everything that we can fit into our family cars and headed on the, hopefully, not too long but definitely cramped journey to our schools. College snuck up on you, didn't it? Well, it definitely didn't on your mom! While you have been waiting for this day your mom has been dreading it. So, prepare yourselves for all the momma drama that comes with move in! And try to guess what type of mom yours is bound to be.

1. The one who is happy to see their kid go.

YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYYYYYYYYY! She without a doubt loves you, but she sure will be happy to have some extra space around the house. She is ready to get all this college stuff out of the house! But don't worry, she will be happy now but begging you to come back home on the weekends.

2. The one who doesn't know how to feel.

This mom is super excited for you! She can't wait for you to experience all the joys that come with college. On the inside, though she is a wreck!!!! She is so sad to see you go but is too happy for you. This mom probably needs to just cry it out and then she will be all set!

3. The one who is so over move in.

She cannot wait to be done! This mom loves order and move-in is anything but order. After countless trips, up and down stairs, she needs a minute. She is without a doubt ready for a long bath and a glass of wine after today. Side note, if you see your mom getting frustrated, give her a break! She's going through a lot!

4. The one who still doesn't know the plan.

This mom is so focused on getting everything together that she's forgetting the little big things about move-in, like the date! She has probably asked you about a million times for the date and time. She's not purposely trying to frustrate you, she has a million things on her mind!

5. The one that has yet to figure out that you live on the top floor and the elevator doesn't go up there.

She doesn't know what's going to hit here. Um, let's just hope that you can play it cool and act like you didn't know this! Your mom will most likely not believe you, but it's worth a shot. Try and ease the tension because she's going to be a little mad. Sorry to all the moms with kids on the floor that the elevator doesn't stop on!

6. The one who doesn't want to say goodbye.

All moms get emotional about move-in. But this mom is having the hardest time. She wants to stay with you until the last possible minute. She will need a box of tissues and a big hug when it's time for her to go! Good luck if you're her first going off to college! Be prepared to listen to all her warnings, even though she has repeated them at least a hundred times.

7. The one who is still crying after getting home from move in.... six hours ago.

Ding ding ding! This mom takes the cake! She has had such a long day with you and is an emotional wreck! She kept it strong in front of you but the minute she pulled away the water works began! Who can blame her though, her baby did just go off to college.

Be prepared for the good, bad and the ugly that comes with move in. While move-in can get super hectic, don't forget about mom! She needs love, LOTS OF IT! Be sure to share your predictions on which mom your mom will be

I Love My Parents For Making Me Hate Them

If you've never disliked your parents, they're doing something wrong.


I did not have the "cool" parents growing up. I was not allowed to go to parties, drink, hang out with bad influences, eat sugary breakfast cereal and Gushers, or date guys who my parents thought were too old for me. I looked around at all of my friends getting permission to do pretty much anything they wanted and filled with jealousy and curiosity as to why that wasn't my life.

A very common conversation in my household:

"But *insert friend's name here*'s parents let them!"
"I'm not *insert same friend's name here*'s parents."

At the time, I felt like my parents were suffocating me and not allowing me to make the mistakes I needed to make to develop as a person. Little did I know, the parenting I had was the absolute best parenting I could possibly have had. Looking back, I'm thankful for all of the rules, punishments, fights, and boundaries, because it did shape who I am as a person and a future parent.

That being said, to those who think their parents are too strict: trust the system. Rules are regulations are crucial for teaching valuable life lessons, regardless of how frustrating it may seem at the time. I cannot express in words how sheltered I felt growing up compared to a lot of my peers, but I now understand the parenting style and hope to apply this same guidance to my future family.

My favorite way to describe the parenting style I had growing up would be by comparing it to a retractable dog leash. My parents always let me explore my boundaries and make mistakes to learn from them, but pulled my back when I put myself or others in danger. They knew the lessons I needed to learn through trial and error, and there were always consequences when I did things that they knew I shouldn't. Getting punished insured that I would repeat mistakes, but also created the necessary separation between friend and parent.

Eventually, it would disappoint me to disappoint my parents, and that guilt was almost punishment enough to prevent me from doing anything I shouldn't. Sometimes I did feel like I was missing out on a lot of the things my peers were able to do. At the same time, however, I knew it was for the best and that my parents had my best interest at heart. When I did act as a regular rebellious teenager, my parents always were on my team and made sure I felt loved and cared for even when they needed to punish me.

Now that I'm older and have established right from wrong on my own, my relationship with my parents is something that others envy. We can joke around and act as best friends, but I also know that if I needed it, my parents would always be there to help me with life's hardest problems and decisions. The fights we had when I was younger and the teenage attitude is now something we can look back and laugh about.

Using my parents as models, I now know how I would one day like to raise my own children. Obviously, all kids are different and there are some things I would change. However, I know that if my children never hate me, I would not be doing my job correctly. I appreciate all of the times I felt like I was restricted and couldn't be who I wanted to be because now I realize that my parents were shaping me into the best person I could possibly be, and that's what I wish I would have wanted all along.
