125 Fast-Track Recipes for Weeknights at the Grill is the perfect cookbook for busy cooks who are looking for variety in their dishes. This is not your typical grilling book which focuses only on recipes for weekend parties. This book is straightforward. The recipes are simple to follow. The book features pictures of the finished product so you can quickly scan to see what you would like to grill. The selections in this book are widespread. It not only features main dishes; it includes side dishes and desserts as well.
This book is perfect for the novice or more experienced griller. This cookbook features a section which explains the basics of grilling. It gives an overview of the various types of grills and grilling tools. A new griller will feel confident and be prepared to cook any of the recipes provided after reading through the book. Cleanup will be a cinch as well. This book discusses proper methods for cleaning your grill, no matter which type you are cooking on.
One reason that I love this book so much is because it is practical. It devotes time and attention to portion sizes and cooking times. It is helpful to know how early you need to start cooking prior to your hungry guests being seated at the dinner table. Furthermore, the recipes featured are appropriate for any day of the week. Other grilling cookbooks focus on grilled items that are strictly for weekend parties. With this book, you can cook anytime for any occasion. The sensibleness of the recipes was also a hit for me. The ingredients were multipurpose and readily available. There is no need to visit a specialty market in preparation to cook any of these selections.
No food will go to waste if you follow this book’s menu plan. One of the most sensible portions of this book is that it encourages the use of leftovers. The recipe and meal plans actually reincorporate dishes that were cooked earlier in the week. Food is becoming increasingly expensive to buy and the use of leftovers ensures that consumers are receiving the maximum benefit of their food budget. Additionally, the extensive selection of recipes encourages less use of the power draining indoor oven. This is an easy way to save money on the utility bills in your household.
Overall, this cookbook is one of the best on the market. It takes the stress out of grilling. The directions are precise. The ingredients are economical and practical.
