July 20, 2015 Book provided by publisher for review. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinions presented herein are my own except as noted. I am a bit particular when it comes to how I cook and this is book is the closest I have ever come to finding a cookbook that offers recipes and cooking styles closest to how I cook. Usually I get a cookbook an leaf through the recipes discarding some and having to modify others beyond all recognition. With this cookbook, filled with fresh ingredients I already find on my shelves, and including many of the fat saving ingredients I like to use, I find I don’t have to modify very much at all. I asked for the cookbook because I wanted to have a book that helped me with some techniques I have never mastered. I think there are some really cool recipes and ideas like grilled watermelon. They even made me look again at microwaving which I haven’t considered as a really great way to heat and defrost, but I haven’t liked to cook with it. I have tried several recipes in the book including slow-cooker cilantro and citrus salmon which was really excellent. The salmon was moist and the citrusy steam and cilantro gave it lovely flavor. I had a little trouble with Honey-Balsamic Brussels Sprouts with Goat Cheese: It was hard to keep them from burning and they were a little too galricky for me. I will try them again, paying more attention to the grilling and reducing the garlic. I also made the Grilled Chicken with Red Raspberry Glaze and it was delicious. And I tried their stewing instructions for Chicken in Tomato Wine sauce. I also plan to try the Baja Fish Tacos, the Shrimp and Watermelon Salad with Cucumber Lime Vinaigrette, and when the weather turns autumnal I am going to spend more time looking at the Braising section. As I said, I am really picky about how and what I cook and this is the best, and healthiest cookbook with the easiest and tastiest recipes I have read in a long while. I also appreciate the pantry stocking section. There are some very basic and general ideas for heart and cardiovascular health but they are second to the great food. This is a perfect present for anyone: no matter their age, gender or expertise. It would be a fantastic shower gift. I think it should be a kitchen staple for the healthy and delicious recipes and the information on techniques.

    I love it when you receive a cookbook that needs ingredients that are handy in the pantry. This is that book. Grill it, Braise It, Broil It is written for every cook, whether beginner or experienced. Throughout the book are recipes listed under different techniques. These include slow cooking, microwaving, blending, grilling, stir-frying, braising, stewing, steaming, poaching, broiling, roasting, and baking. Written by the American Heart Association the recipes are heart-healthy. This is a book I love it when you receive a cookbook that needs ingredients that are handy in the pantry. This is that book.

    There are 175 recipes in Grill It, Braise it, Broil It, and 9 Other Easy Techniques For Making Healthy Meals. Unlike a lot of cook books that organized by meals or types of meats, this one from the American Heart Association is organized by cooking techniques. That isn’t the only thing this cookbook does that is different from the norm. After some introductory pages regarding shopping trips, what to eat and what to avoid, as well as a number of lifestyle suggestions, it is on to cooking There are 175 recipes in Grill It, Braise it, Broil It, and 9 Other Easy Techniques For Making Healthy Meals. Unlike a lot of cook books that organized by meals or types of meats, this one from the American Heart Association is organized by cooking techniques. That isn’t the only thing this cookbook does that is different from the norm. After some introductory pages regarding shopping trips, what to eat and what to avoid, as well as a number of lifestyle suggestions, it is on to cooking techniques. The first one is “Slow Cooking” and begins on page 6 with a listing of 14 recipes. Along with various soups, stews, and gumbos, there are also recipes for “Rosemary Steak Smothered In Onions” (page 19) and “New Mexican Meat Loaf” (page 22-23). Each recipe has a detailed ingredient list, detailed instructions, one or more bulleted cooking tips, and detailed serving info regarding calories, various types of fat, sodium, cholesterol, and more. Some information regarding preparation time is included in the more complicated recipes, but there is no overall estimate on each one how long it should take start to finish. This same recipe format continues through the rest of the chapter sections. There are additional sections covering Microwaving (starting on page 29), “Blending” (page 50), “Grilling” (page 69) among others including “Broiling” (page 199), “Roasting” (page 220) and “Baking” (page 247). A classic “Herb Roasted Chicken” recipe can be found on page 232 and it includes how to make gray from the pan. The simple act of making gravy from pan drippings continues to confound me. After the recipes it is on to the interesting information such as stocking a heart healthy pantry (pages 272- 275). This includes pantry items as well as perishable items in terms of produce and more. So, it is not just pantry items as one would think of as it includes refrigerator and freezer items among other things. Advice on kitchen safety and working with food, basic kitchen equipment, as well as serving size by calories level is included before leading up to the eight page index that concludes the book. The eight page index is organized by ingredient as opposed to recipe. An anomaly with the cookbook is the 8 pages of random colorful pictures of dishes inserted between pages 58-59 in the book. Each picture of a dish has the name of it as well as the page number location for the dish. This is the kind of random cluster of photographs one normally sees at the very beginning of a cookbook. Instead, it is inserted here in the middle of the section on “Blending.” Also worth noting is the fact that much of the information in small type has been placed inside of grey background boxes. This can be hard to see on older eyes. Grill It, Braise It, Broil it, And 9 Other Easy Techniques For Making Healthy Meals is not a flashy and colorful paperback cookbook. It is a plain barebones cookbook packed with detailed information. Whether it works for you and yours is something you will have to determine. If you need a cookbook that will tell you exactly what is in the food you are preparing, this one is for you. Grill It, Braise It, Broil it, And 9 Other Easy Techniques For Making Healthy Meals American Heart Association Clarkson Potter/Publishers (Crown Publishing Group) http://www.clarksonpotter.com June 2015 ISBN# 978-0-307-88809-9 Paperback (e-book version also available) 304 Pages $19.99 Material supplied by the good folks of the Plano Public Library System.

    I have a number of cookbooks by the American Heart Association, and I enjoy reading them and using them for their healthful and delicious recipes and their valuable, common-sense approach to an optimal lifestyle. The latest addition to my collection, "Grill It, Braise It, Broil It, and 9 Other Easy Techniques for Making Healthy Meals" is very timely and relevant to changes I've been making in the way I choose food and the way I prepare meals.

The latest addition to my collection, "Grill It, Braise It, Broil It, and 9 Other Easy Techniques for Making Healthy Meals" is very timely and relevant to changes I've been making in the way I choose food and the way I prepare meals. I save my spice jars and make my own unique seasonings with pinches and dashes of herbs and spices that are a blend of frequently used flavors and those that seem to just sit on the spice shelf. I also have started to try different cooking techniques that reduce fat and cooking time and make the most of the properties of the foods and the cooking methods and even the pots and pans themselves.This cookbook from the American Heart Association begins with an excellent, concise, but thorough, primer on heart-healthy cooking techniques, smart shopping, and other suggestions for better living, and then follows through with yummy recipes for each of the twelve cooking methods. Here's a recipe sampler from each of the chapters: Slow Cooking--"Rosemary Steak Smothered in Onions"; Microwaving--"Sugar Snap Peas with Sweet-and-Sour Sauce"; Blending--"Butternut Squash and Apple Soup"; Grilling--"Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetable Kabobs"; Stir-Frying--"Summertime Stir-Fry"; Braising--"Shrimp and Grits with Greens"; Stewing--"Steakhouse Stew"; Steaming--"Thai Sweet Rice with Mango"; Poaching--"Lemon Chicken with Dill Sauce"; Broiling--"Sirloin Steak with Creamy Horseradish Sauce"; Roasting--"Herb-Roasted Chicken"; and Baking--"Cheddar Cheese Pub Bread". There are not enough food photos--but those included are colorful and tempting. Each cooking method has its own chapter which explains the usage and benefits of the technique. Every one of the 175 recipes has a nutritional breakdown, and quite a few of the pages offer helpful hints. Also included are a "heart-healthy pantry guide" and the basics on cooking equipment and tools and the facts about kitchen and food safety. I am sure you will find "Grill It, Braise It, Broil It" helpful and inspiring in your own search for "what to cook" and how to cook it in fresh and fabulous new ways.

    The American Heart Association is known for producing high quality cookbooks aimed at improving nutrition for today's rapid fire lifestyle. This newest cookbook provides 175 recipes prepared in one of 12 methods of cooking including microwaving, grilling, braising, and poaching.

A few The American Heart Association is known for producing high quality cookbooks aimed at improving nutrition for today's rapid fire lifestyle. This newest cookbook provides 175 recipes prepared in one of 12 methods of cooking including microwaving, grilling, braising, and poaching. In true AMA style every recipe is detailed with preparation and cooking tips, nutritional content and clear precise directions. One disadvantage of this glossy covered paperback cookbook is the lack of photographs. A few color photos are tucked in the center. The index is arranged by major ingredient but not by recipe and for older eyes the print is very lightly colored and harder to read. The AMA has created recipes with fancy names and most have one or more unusual ingredient that unfortunately is not available in areas with smaller rural grocery options. If a family is looking for a simple familiar recipe perhaps cooked in a different style they will be disappointed. If a family likes variety and a change of pace with different spices and preparation styles they will like it. The strongest feature that this reviewer found was the detailed information about each of the 12 methods of cooking that could be used with family favorite recipes. It would be very valuable to a new cook or as a gift to someone looking to learn healthier methods of meal preparation. Thanks to Blogging for Books for the review copy of this new book in exchange for an honest review.

You won’t find fried food in this cookbook. Meals are prepared by low cooking, blending, stir frying, grilling (my favorite), braising, stewing, steaming, poaching, baking and broiling. Some examples of recipes: Madeira Flank Steak Chicken Cacciatore with Pasta Minted Pea Soup with Yogurt Swirl, Cinnamon-Raisin Apples Shrimp and Grits with Greens Thai-Style Chicken Potstickers Sweet and Tangy Scallops Sirloin Steak with Creamy Horseradish Sauce Pork Tenderloin Stuffed with Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomatoes Now isn’t your mouth watering? I can’t wait to make the peach crisp for dessert and hope to try the shrimp and grits this week. Maybe if I cook exclusively from this book for a month my cholesterol will go down a bit. You never know!

    I found this book clearly laid out with step by step instructions as well as lists of ingredients and tips. I liked the format but would have liked more pictures. The lack of pictures made it a little uninspiring for me but the format was great and easy to follow.
