1. Dad’s cooking? Why not make something with tater tots?

 
Tots! 50 Tot-ally Awesome Recipes from Totchos to Sweet Po-Tot-O Pie
by Dan Whalen
A tater tot themed cookbook? Count your dad in. Filled with great ideas like Tots Poutine and Mac ‘n’ Tot ‘n’ Cheese, no one in the family will object to anything dad creates using Dan’s guidance. Most of the recipes use frozen store-bought tots, but if the dad in your life is comfy in the kitchen, no worries. Tots! also includes directions for making these favorite frozen potato treats from scratch.

2. Hard lessons learned are often the most important ones.

Keep reading and you’ll find life lessons that every single father will relate to in this sweet—and brutally honest—memoir/advice book.
