Grill Every Day vs. Grill! – TDL Finals, Where Delicious Happens

grill every day, grill! cookbooks

The Delicious Life Cookbook-a-Day Giveaway


The Highlights: Click to make color commentary on your favorite food done on the grill to possibly win either Grill! or Grill Every Day. You can only win one, and you might not win anything at all in this round, but don’t worry, we only use the word “loser” in the same sentence as “Boston,” mmm-k?

Full Coverage: In the NBA Finals, there can only be one.

The stunning display of speed, accuracy and refined talent on this blog may confuse you, but this is not the NBA. Cain’t you read? What are you, illegitimate? This is TDL, where delicious happens, and in the TDL Finals, aka the Birthday Month Cookbook-a-Day Giveaway, there can only be — do the calendarial math carefully now — 30.

Let me break it down slowly for the remedial fans in the nosebleeds: 30 days in June. 30 books. 30 winners.

We’re only a third of the way through the month and of course, I am already a few cookbooks behind. Are you surprised? Can you blame me?! It’s summer! It’s my birthday month!

The Lakers are in the NBA Finals!

It hasn’t been easy blogging in my old high school cheerleading uniform for the last five days.

To grill or not to grill? That is the question.

I’d be happy with either one of those!

jalapeno poppers on the grill:

slice pepper in half lengthwise and de-seed and de-vein.
fill with cream cheese.
wrap in prosciutto (for fancy people) or bacon (for the midwestern types) and skewer to keep pork product on said pepper.
grill cut side up until done.
enjoy and schedule appointment with cardiologist for coronary stent.

balsamic-marinded strawberries in a foil packet — served with ice cream (if the guests aren’t scalding their fingers picking them off while you’re doing the scooping!)

I love anything grilled, but one of my favorite things is red and yellow bell peppers grilled until charred, peeled then drizzled with olive oil and a little bit of salt and pepper. So yummy and great with grilled meats.

do spicy buffalo wings count?

20 sarah j. gim June 11, 2008 at 5:21 am

hc: wow. do you also add sugar or honey or anything?

franmag: skip the meat. i could eat roasted red peppers for an entire meal (with some cheese, though)

teri48xxx: korean reprazent.

ashley: of course they count. i am of the firm belief that as with deep-frying, you can smack anything down on the grill.

Nothing beats a good ol’ fashion ribeye. That, or galbi depending on which loyalty is stronger that day.

I have to be true to my roots (well, half of them anyway): Samoan BBQ Chicken!

…although I’m digging the jalapeno popper recipe, too! Thanks, Cocoa-lish!

p.s. I’m also impressed by the graphic play on the NBA commercials! I knew Kobe would pull out the win, knew it!

No sweetener needed – just good quality balsamic & fresh ‘n ripe strawberries. It only needs 5-10 minutes on the grill & the vinegar helps accentuate the berries natural sweetness.

I should saw something like grilled vegetables or fish, but while I like both of them. The quintessential summer food to me is a grilled bratwurst.

29 Erin June 11, 2008 at 1:01 pm

I was thinking: which one?

I say either…OR BOTH!

I’m a purist, I like meat on my grill. A nice carne asada baby! I also like oysters still in their shell over Bar-B. Yum!

32 hohomanx June 12, 2008 at 12:41 pm

i luv meat on the grill, but most recently i’ve been goofing off with trying to smoke ribs on a charcoal grill, but i guess that’s more bbq than “grilling”. i guess i’ll say a juicy steak that’s been marinated overnight in a mixture of soy sauce, garlic, peanut butter, citrus, and onions. mmmmm

Galbi or tri tip. Next time I’ll give pineapple slices a shot.

Love your blog!

Chicken, ribeye, shrimp, darn it, anything on the grill I love…I even used my grill one year to bake things — so the house would stay cool.

Yummy, someone said oysters on the half shell, that would be my favorite too except we would do those over and open fire with a piece of tin out in the woods with a keg of beer when we were younger..lol. I also have to agree that nothing beats a big, fat juicy steak. Thank you for your giveaway!
