We aren’t sure what Curtis Stone’s wife is going to do for him for Father’s Day, but it’ll be tough for Lindsay Price to outdo 2014: She hired a string quartet and spent all day cooking him an Italian dinner. And this was to one-up Curtis’ Mother’s Day move the month before, when he hired a mariachi band and rolled out a Mexican feast in their backyard. Over the top, yes, but the chef doesn’t get much time off, between his Los Angeles restaurant, Maude, and his hours on the set of All-Star Academy. When he does have a minute with Lindsay and their two young sons, Hudson and Emerson, he makes a big deal of it. Curtis would love anything Lindsay decides to make this year, but he admits that he often craves a big steak. “All us guys like to feel like Fred Flintstone once in a while,” he says. This summery steak dinner, from his cookbook Good Food, Good Life, couldn’t be easier. “It leaves more time for friends and family,” he says.
Get Curtis’ ideal Father’s Day meal below.

Choosing the right appetizer for a group gathering is no easy feat, and on an occasion like Father’s Day, the stakes are even higher — Dad deserves a solid celebratory feast. Dips are an ideal choice thanks to their ease and versatility, and they will commence the meal without overshadowing it. Better yet, the whole family can get involved in dip preparation — even the littlest kids. To get your game plan in order, start by selecting a main dish you know Dad will love, then prepare a dip that plays off of those flavors, whether rich and creamy or bright and refreshing. These seven winning dips are guaranteed to score big.

There are few dips more satisfying than fresh, chunky guacamole — except for guacamole with bacon in it. When preparing a batch of this cumin- and jalapeno-spiced guac, cook up a few bacon slices, then crumble them into this chunky dip. Dad will surely approve.

Once our burgers reach charred, juicy perfection on the grill, we tend to stack them high with all kinds of toppings. More often than not, they come with a layer of melting cheese on top. But that doesn’t mean that burgers should always be built from the bottom up. Instead of laying cheese and other toppings on top as an afterthought, surprise your fellow burger eaters by stuffing your next patties at the core.
If you’re grilling for a crowd, offer up burgers with a little variety. Trisha Yearwood’s Cheese-Stuffed Burgers (pictured above) are stuffed with different cheeses, like pimento, mozzarella or blue cheese. Though they may be stuffed differently, they’re all grilled to juicy perfection with an oozing cheesy center.

Mindy Kaling has a new project: She’s collaborating with Los Angeles-based Umami Burger — on a new burger, natch
“In the greatest collaboration since Jared and Subway,” she recently quipped/announced on Instagram, “I am curating a burger for @UmamiBurger that will debut in September” — perfectly timed, she notes, for the launch of her TV show “The Mindy Project” on Hulu and the release of her second book, “Why Not Me?” due out September 15.
