    I roast potatoes all the time, usually taking thin-skinned larger potatoes and cutting them into manageable chunks. Which are delicious, if somewhat utilitarian on the plate. To kick up the presentation a notch, with no extra work, grab a couple of pounds of fingerlings instead.

    In honor of Father’s Day, I’ve conjured up a recipe featuring an arsenal of steakhouse delights, starting with steak itself and including potatoes, spinach and blue cheese. But I’ve prepared and combined these ingredients in a way that’s slightly healthier than usual, namely in a salad. The bulk of it is given over to spinach, tomatoes and cucumbers. It’s topped with warm sliced steak (only a little over 3 ounces per person), blue cheese dressing and oven-baked (not deep-fried) potato chips.

    My father loves dessert. My mother baked spice cakes, brownies, pies and cookies daily, so he’d have a homemade treat after dinner and in his brown bag lunch. His first words after surgery? Chocolate ice cream, please. All this means that for his birthday and Father’s Day, we pull out the sweet stops.
