Pre- season is always the best time to pick up popular books, especially cookbooks. Putting things on hold or picking up a couple titles each time you're at the library ensures you've already seen everything you need before everyone else realizes that it's time to fire up the grill and they have no idea what to make!
This habit can be an especially big help if you:
* don't shop (or get to the library) often
* prefer batch cooking
* menu plan more than a week in advance
* have picky eaters or dietary restrictions
Not sure where to start? Here are a few of my newest discoveries:
This is pretty much a grilling Bible. Loved it!
If you are old hat at grilling and are looking for something more adventurous, try Soaked, Slathered and Seasoned.
This is the best cookie cookbook ever. Of all time. Find it - ASAP!
Finally, for my fellow canners out there, check this out. Everyone needs a copy of the Ball Blue Book or Putting Food By, but if you're looking to expand your repertoire this has some delicious and different ideas.
