No Grill? No Problem

Roasted vegetables.Summertime may be the season for grilling, but what about people without grills? If you don’t have a grill, there are still other delicious methods of cooking that you can take advantage of!


When grilling isn’t an option, your next best option is broiling. Broiling provides similar flavor and charring to cooking foods on a grill. When broiling your favorite foods, it is important to keep the oven door open to get the best flavor.  I love the flavor of this Honey Soy Broiled Salmon.  Once you get the hang of it, experiment to make your favorites!


Sautéing is a quick method of cooking that is similar to stir-frying. Sautéing uses fairly high heat to brown vegetables and meats while using a small amount of fat. For a deliciously quick meal, try this recipe for Chicken with Tomato Herb Sauce.

Roasting and Baking

Roasting and baking are cooking methods that use dry heat at high temperatures. These methods of cooking are two of my favorites because they bring out the flavors of the food with little added fat and calories! For tender and tasty meats, try roasting a whole chicken or baking your favorite fish filet. Looking for mouth-watering veggies that everyone will love?  Check out these flavorful Roasted Vegetables!

Cooking with other methods is easy and just as tasty as the grill! Try out these tips for your next party for BBQ-style foods without the grill but all of the flavor. Enjoy!
