Country Living editor-in-chief Nancy Mernit Soriano aptly captures the tone in her foreword: "whether cooking for a gathering in your garden or packing a basket for a romantic picnic... the recipes and tips you'll find on the pages ahead are ones you're sure to revisit again and again." Classic favorites include Deviled Eggs, Creamy Macaroni Salad, Glazed Bacon- and Cheese-filled Burgers, and Grilled Lemon-Tarragon Chicken. There are some small twists, such as and Lavender and Pepper Steak, but most dishes are deliciously predictable. Bright, attractive and tasteful photos showcase the simple freshness of each dish. Also included in this solid cookbook is helpful information on both charcoal and gas grills; recipes for basic condiments and dressings (like mayonnaise, pickle relish and hot mustard); refreshing drinks (pink lemonade and pineapple cooler); and all the desserts you'd expect, like Fresh Berry Shortcake.
