The books is easy to follow. The recipes are clear, easy to make and so far, very good. I can hardly try to make some on the BBQ soon

I like it... May 7 2013
By Lyndell VanMatre - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
...but not well enough to keep it. I debated between three & four stars, then decided that four was more appropriate. That is because most of my complaints are unique to me: things like just knowing I won't be cooking from it because most of the recipes are either things I already do or use ingredients we don't care for. Our condo association doesn't allow grilling on balconies. This book is so much about eating outside and grilling.

Those things don't make it a bad book, just one that's not suitable for my library.

It's a really good book for the right audience, with one exception: the lack of pictures in this day is a serious lacking for a cookbook. We've grown used to having that gloriously styled image of "what the dish is supposed to look like" when it's plated, or served. There are a few (nicely done) pics toward the end, but not enough.

Recommended for most. especially for people who have backyards, or can otherwise use a grill. The recipes are delicious sounding, and fairly simple/easy. Good for summer.

Fantastic May 13 2013

I was referred to this cookbook on Ina Garten's blog. I live in Florida many months where it's summer all the time and wanted some recipes for this lifestyle. The recipes are incredible. Just last night I made the Shrimp Cakes with Herb Mayonnaise. I cook all the time and this recipes was one of the best I've ever made. They tasted as good as a seafood cake you'd get at a top New England restaurant. I can't wait to try my next recipe.
