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.

2. Preheat small frying pan over medium heat. Coat pan with 1 tablespoons of butter. Add peppers and onions and saute for 5-7 minutes.

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.

6. You can always exchange the peppers and onions for other things like bacon, mushroom, or tomatoes.

4. Mouthwatering breakfast potatoes

2. Remove the lid and increase the heat between medium and medium high, add the onion and red bell pepper and make sure you try to push the veggies down a little to get them to be almost in a single layer so they can develop some color.

3. Allow the veggies to cook on all sides for about 15 minutes and develop a good golden brown color but don't stir them too much.

4. Add the parsley and garlic and season with salt and pepper and cook for 1 more minute.

No matter what you end up doing for Father's Day, just know that anything coming from a place of love is what matters. And like they always say, "a way to a man's heart is through his stomach."

To The Dad Who Didn't Want Me, It's Mutual Now

Thank you for leaving me because I am happy.

Thank you, for leaving me.

Thank you, for leaving me when I was little.

Thank you, for not putting me through the pain of watching you leave.

Thank you, for leaving me with the best mother a daughter could ask for.

I no longer resent you. I no longer feel anger towards you. I wondered for so long who I was. I thought that because I didn't know half of my blood that I was somehow missing something. I thought that who you were defined me. I was wrong. I am my own person. I am strong and capable and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

In my most vulnerable of times, I struggled with the fact that you didn't want me. You could have watched me grow into the person that I have become, but you didn't. You had a choice to be in my life. I thought that the fact that my own father didn't want me spoke to my own worth. I was wrong. I am so worthy. I am deserving, and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

You have missed so much. From my first dance to my first day of college, and you'll continue to miss everything. You won't see me graduate, you won't walk me down the aisle, and you won't get to see me follow my dreams. You'll never get that back, but I don't care anymore. What I have been through, and the struggles that I have faced have brought me to where I am today, and I can't complain. I go to a beautiful school, I have the best of friends, I have an amazing family, and that's all I really need.

Whoever you are, I hope you read this. I hope you understand that you have missed out on one of the best opportunities in your life. I could've been your daughter. I could have been your little girl. Now I am neither, nor will I ever be.

So thank you for leaving me because I am happy. I understand my self-worth, and I understand that you don't define me. You have made me stronger. You have helped make me who I am without even knowing it.

So, thank you for leaving me.

A Prayer For The Christians, After Brett Kavanaugh's Confirmation

I lift up our Nation during a time when we need God the most.


Dear God, we are a divided nation as ever. In recent events, the devil has been ever so present, dividing your children apart.

We, your children, your followers, your disciples, trust in you, however, today is a time where we are lost within ourselves. It has been shown that some of our brothers and sisters in Christ support a man that falls so far beneath you that it is unnerving.

A man who has lied. A man accused of mistreating a woman. A man who has turned most of your children against a woman who only tried to serve the greater good.

We know that you are a just God. However, in times like these, our faith falters.

We can't understand how a man like Brett Kavanaugh is to now hold the title of the Supreme Court Justice.

A man who was accused of sexually assaulting a young woman in his earlier years. A man who showed his true colors during the interview process when questioned about the accusations that were made against him. Lord, this is a man who, after he had won, did not even apologize to Dr. Ford for all she had endured.

Oh, Dear Lord, you see as to why it weighs so heavily on our hearts? A man who falls so far away from you now holds the most powerful title in the judicial branch in our government.

Lord, are we to be like the Israelites who had to wander through the desert because they allowed corrupt power to overtake them? Are we to be like your fallen followers who allowed Satan to slither his way into their lives? Will we be living our own book of Lamentations soon enough?

How much more will we have to endure for our brothers and sisters to see that the devil is alive and well within our government?

Oh, God, I pray that you wrap your comforting arms around the survivors of sexual harassment and assault. I pray that you remind them that your love is unending and the outcome of this Supreme Court decision will not waver that.

I pray you give them strength and bravery to face those who believe that the word of a woman is less than meaningless.

I pray that you surround the women who mourned this loss as I did with people who believe them and love them as you love us.

Lord, I pray that your presence in Capitol Hill becomes ever so evident because, without you, we are nothing.

I lift up Brett Kavanaugh. I pray that you open up his heart and allow him to see a Christ-like life to live and serve — a life you allowed your own son to live.

I pray for his forgiveness because like we all are, he is a sinner. I pray, Lord, that you make yourself known to him.

Lastly, God, I pray for my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. This is a trying time for any believer. I pray they find truth in you and you alone.

As it says in the book of Psalms, "Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling!"

In Your Name, I Pray, Amen.
