Reviews for Simply Grilling: 105 Recipes for Quick and Casual Grilling
Jennifer Chandler has written a Grilling Cookbook that is perfect for everyone - the beginner, casual & master grillers - women who may be a little intimidated by what usually seems to be a guy's territory. Jennifer opens Simply Grilling with a thorough but easy to understand explanation of the different types of grills, tools you'll use and how to heat up the grill and how to know if your food is done.She has a wonderful selection of recipes to choose from like & do-ahead tips and variation ideas to match everyone's palate:Starters: Grilled Artichokes and Grilled Salmon DipChicken: Tequila Chicken Fajitas (I see a few people drooling!) or how about Tandoori Chicken (I can smell it already!)Veggies & Sides: Smokey Steak Fries or Mexican Corn on the CobSweet, Sweet Endings (anyone still hungry?): I'm personally thinking Jennifer's Strawberry Cake would hit the spot about now (or maybe in an hour!)One of the nicest things about Simply Grilling is that many of the recipes are based on using the grill to bring out the flavors of fruits & veggies. She worked with 2 friends who are vegetarians to develop the Veggies & Sides chapter and with some of the desserts the fruits were sliced and then grilled and other desserts never even touched the grill at all. Many of the recipes are ideal for Dinner Parties, casual cookouts and even tailgate parties.read more
