Easy Grilling with Gas- My gas grill has become as necessary to me as my oven. This hasn't always been the case. There
was a time when it was my husband's "job" to grill in the summer. Slowly I started taking over this

and brings a summer feel to meals. In the hot weather, grilling keeps the "heat" outside, so the
kitchen remains cool. Oh, and food tastes wonderful all year round!
