George Foreman's Indoor Grilling Made Easy: More Than 100 Simple, Healthy Ways to Feed Family and Friends
George Foreman. Simon & Schuster, $22 (240pp) ISBN 978-0-7432-6674-1
Foreman's ""Lean Mean Grilling Machine"" is one of the fastest, most simple ways to cook dinner: the grill cooks both sides of the food at once and can be cleaned with a damp sponge or paper towel. Its simplicity makes it a natural for beginning cooks, and this cookbook speaks directly to that audience, with introductory notes explaining that measuring cups and spoons ""really do take the guesswork out of following a recipe"" and recipes for dishes that, for the most part, can be made in three steps. The food is alluring--Chipotle Burgers with Avocado; Sesame-Scented Asparagus; Creamy Dijon Lamb Chops--and low-maintenance, and Foreman intersperses anecdotes throughout about his kids and their food preferences, his penchant for ""a good strategy"" (he maps out the week's dinners ahead of time) and other tidbits about life in the Foreman household. This book should appeal to those sharing Foreman's easy attitude toward cooking.
