In my eyes, my dad can do anything. He is the mechanic, the cook, the driver, and—my favorite—the storyteller. When I was little, I loved those long family car rides where my mom and sisters would nod off to sleep, and I would stay awake to hear my dad spin a tale about a frog in a well or two horsemen racing to foreign cities. He influenced my love for stories in a great way.

For all the roles he played, my dad deserves a hearty meal to match his heart for building a great big world for his family. Giouvarlakia with Tomato Sauce and Oregano (pictured above) fits the bill, and I’ve gathered a few more recipes to share with the man of the hour this Father’s Day.
