Grilled peaches are a fast, easy, and healthy dessert and the perfect way to complete a grilled summer dinner.  They’re excellent served with a chilled, crisp white wine or a glass of iced tea.  The heat of the grill concentrates the sugars in the peaches, making them sweet and soft.  Make sure your peaches are ripe, but not soft, otherwise they will just turn to mush when heated on the grill.

Grilled Pork Chop and Endive with Balsamic Glaze

Here is a recipe adapted from the latest Bon Appétit magazine (August issue).  It stood out to me for its simplicity, yet elegance.  It’s a great summer, outdoor cooking meal.  Yet, it could also work just as well any time of year; just cook it on a grill pan in doors if necessary.  Serve it with a simple spinach salad dressed with lemon vinaigrette.

Grilling Corn in the Husks

Grilling Corn in the Husks

Grilled corn is a quintessential American summer dish.  The sweet, slightly crunchy corn kernels accented by the grill flavor is the perfect summer vegetable.  There are 2 ways to grill corn on the cob.  You can place the corn in the husk directly on the grill with no preparation, allowing the husks smoking from the grill to impart flavor on the corn.  Or, you can pre-cook the corn on the cob by steaming it in the microwave before putting it on the grill.  This speeds up the cooking time by about 10 minutes.  The advantage here is you don’t have to remove the husks from piping hot corn.
