Monday through Friday at R29, the closest thing to a recipe book we're hitting up is Seamless. Or, you might be familiar with its other edition, Grubhub. Stop by our reception desk around 12 p.m. and it will be lined with takeout delivery bags. What can we say? We're busy, and it's hot in the kitchen.
But, weekends are a different story. Step one to enjoying a summer day is diving into our favorite, warm-weather themed cookbooks. Whether it's a bestseller or a childhood standby — the tasty ideas hiding inside just speak our language. So, we've rounded up the easiest, lightest recipes for hot nights, to pass the dog-eared pages onto you. From our CEO's favorite grilling manual to egg dishes our L.A. editor swears by, there's something for everyone. So, tell us: What's cookin', good lookin'?
