Everyday Grilling

50 Recipes from Appetizers to Desserts

I love grilling indoors and out so I was happy to review EVERYDAY GRILLING by Sur La Table. This book is a great reference whether you are experienced with grilling or just starting out. It contains over 50 easy recipes that you can master and use to impress your friends and family. I could definitely see this as a Mother's Day or Father's Day gift too.

The photos are beautifully illustrated and will make you hungry for more. I first tried the Grilled Pizza recipe and it was much easier to accomplish than I thought it would be. I might be done with the oven for pizza because the grill does give it that smokehouse flavor, which brings a ton of flavor to the meal.

EVERYDAY GRILLING contains salads, appetizers, main dishes, desserts, sandwiches, sauces and more!

This is a hardback edition and contains several desserts too, so it's not just about the main entree. Several great appetizers are included like the Sweet Potatoes recipe I tried. Being diabetic, I often turn to sweet potatoes because they are healthier and lower in carbohydrates than a regular potato. This recipe will have you loving the humble potato on the grill. I found the grilled pineapple with grilled pound cake to be outstanding. The grill just brings out the natural sugars in the pineapple and caramelizes them so all you get is a burst of sweet flavors. Whether you are buying EVERYDAY GRILLING for yourself or as a gift-I think you should get it. It even has dishes inside for many vegetables so there is plenty of food offered for everyone's taste.
