Beautifully photographed, this cookbook includes full menus, recipes for the grill, for picnics, for leisurely breakfasts and abundant desserts. Directions are easy and there are even tips like how to host a wine tasting. Breads include corn bread to Italian Bread Salad, breakfast treats feature Easy Berry pancakes, Baked French Toast Casserole and Strawberry Streusel muffins. Desserts ranging from peanut butter and chocolate chunk cookies to frozen Sangria Pops to Baby Pineapples filled with Pineapple Sherbet. For entrees, you can choose anything from Marinated Pepper Crusted Beef Tenderloin and Jalapeño Cheeseburgers, to Grilled Chicken and Pesto Clubs, or Southwestern Chicken Bundles. Ah ¿ then there is fish and seafood. There is a great section titled the Seafood Primer ¿ and describes everything, with recommended cooking techniques, from catfish to caviar to wild salmon. Try the Broiled Clams in Herb Butter, Grilled Alaskan Halibut with Avocado Lime Sauce, or Crab Bisque, Crab Cakes or Crab Rolls. As you can imagine, seafood is covered extensively. So in this book there really is something for everyone.

I just received this cookbook 2 weeks ago and have already made about 12 of the recipes. They have all been exceptional. The cookbook is also very informative about all types of seafood, how to buy, prep, store, etc. Not only are the recipes great, but the pictures are beautiful. Great entertaining ideas. If you do not subscribe to the magazine, Coastal Living, do it, and buy this cookbook!
