What's for Dinner?

Grilling, Chilling, and More...Though record temperatures probably means your kitchen scores lower on the favorite room hit parade, you still have to eat...

Here's a few titles new to our cookbook collection, accompanied by suggestions for grilling and chilling...

Eat Like a Man includes recipes collected by Esquire editor-in-chief, David Granger. People from both genders will recognize the names of many a recipe contributor.  On the lighter side, try Man with Pan from cartoonist and New Yorker editor, John Donohue.

BBQ afficianados may appreciate Smokin' with Myron Mixon; Mixon is a judge on TLC's Barbecue Pitmasters.  The Food Network's Guy Fieri (Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) weighs in with Cookin' It, Livin' It, Lovin' It.  Also try Steven Raichlen's Planet Barbecue; Raichlen hosts Primal Grill on PBS.

On the beverage front, the Liquid Kitchen books by Hayden Wood include oodles of recipes for cocktails (without and without), accompanied by food recommendations and tips for entertaining.  A Cooking Well title showcases alcohol-free drinks; nutritional and calorie count info included.
