- Make sure your grill is hot! When it comes to pizza crust, the higher the temperature of your grill, the more blistery and chewably crispy your pizza will be. If you don't have a thermometer on your grill, then check the heat using the "Mississippi" test: hold your hand three inches over the grill grates, and start counting, "One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi," and so on. If you can only count to two or three before the force of the heat makes you pull back your hands, then you know you've got your grill at 600ºF or higher.

I'm a bourbon drinker, but manhattans and old-fashioneds just aren't as satisfying in the Summer. If you're looking to switch brown liquor for a clear spirit in the warmer months, the gin new fashioned is a good way to dabble.I got this recipe from Nolet's Silver Gin, which sent along a bottle of booze and some sour cherry marmalade as part of its Cupboard to Cocktail program. Of course, you could make the drink with any gin, but this silver version (from the makers of Ketel One) is exceptionally verdant, smooth, and just slightly fruity. I like the idea of using marmalades and jams in cocktails, because you can buy the ingredient and use it for many things. Plus the cherry and citrus combination has a nice Summer vibe. Get your Summer jams on and make a gin new-fashioned.

Use red lentils in soups and stews. Red lentils (known in Indian cuisine as masoor dal break down when cooked to produce creamy, thick soups. Dal soups are household staples in India and surrounding countries. Try this Pakistani dal recipe for an authentic taste of India.
Use black lentils in salads. Black French du Puy lentils are small and sturdy, so they can withstand being tossed around in a salad. Use them as a salad topper, or for heftier fare, try this recipe for cold French lentils with potato salad.
Use green lentils in spreads. Employ green lentils to whip up a lentil hummus to slather on crackers, in sandwiches, or on crudités.
What's your favorite color of lentil — and your favorite way to prepare it?
Busting out the grill is almost always inextricably linked to burgers. When you envision the smoky charcoals glowing under the grill, it's hard not to evoke the nostalgic, earthy, and iron-like smell of hamburger patties sizzling on the metal grates. Beef, chicken, black bean, and cheese-stuffed: the options are limitless, but these 10 will keep your grill busy in the meantime.
