Bittman gets grilling

(article, Culinate staff)

Sure, July Fourth was yesterday. But because it fell on a Sunday this year, plenty of folks also have today off. Which means yet another summer day at home, fooling around with the grill. Need inspiration? Mark Bittman — he of the Summer 101 Lists, such as 101 Quick Summer Suppers or 101 Easy Summer Salads — has come out with 101 Fast Grilling Recipes.

The grilling recipes are broken down by ingredient, from Vegetables and Fruits to Meat, Fish and Shellfish, Kebabs, Salads, Burgers, Sandwiches and Breads, and Dessert. We're amused by recipe number 41, which just reads simply, "Bacon-wrapped hot dog. You know you want one."
