Haylie Duff is many things—actress, singer, mom to an adorable baby girl, and big sister to fellow celeb Hilary Duff—but these days, she’s making a name for herself as a lifestyle guru and recipe developer. Duff is the founder of the blog Real Girl’s Kitchen, which led to a cookbook by the same name ($13; amazon.com) and her own show, Haylie’s America, which will premier on the Cooking Channel in early September.

Naturally, Duff took to the kitchen to whip up a tasty Father’s Day feast last weekend. She settled on drumsticks with zesty white BBQ sauce—“Drumsticks for Dad,” as she calls them—and shared the recipe on her site, writing, “Father’s Day is the perfect day to spoil the main man in your life…whether that’s your Dad or your baby’s Dad…it’s all about the men today…and that means HEAT UP THAT GRILL!” Try out the delicious dish at your next backyard BBQ using the recipe below.

1 red onion (optional, to clean grill)

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp lemon pepper

1/2 cup mayo

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

1 tsp hot sauce or horseradish

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder
