Bookazine Review - Best of Summer

About the Bookazine
It’s summertime—and the eating’s delicious! Best of Summer, a new warm-weather recipe collection from the editors of Good Housekeeping, Redbook, Country Living, and Woman’s Day, will help you make the most of it. You’ll find delicious ways to take advantage of favorite farmer’s market produce, great new ideas for the backyard grill, and sure-fire crowd-pleasers for your next picnic or potluck.

Fire up the backyard grill and dig into new takes on summertime classics like burgers, dogs, and ribs, or lighten up with tasty chicken and fish recipes like Coffee-Spice Chicken & Fruit-Basil Salsa and Citrus Basil Salmon. When it comes to entertaining, we’ve got you covered, with summer favorites like Deviled Eggs (10 variations!), Honey-Baked Beans, Grilled Corn-on-the-Cob, and (for a special occasion) Grilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb.

Headed to a potluck or picnic? Take along our Tomato, Corn & Barley Salad, or bring a sweet treat like Macadamia Triangles, Blueberry-Spice Whoopie Pies, or Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cupcakes.

And there’s much, much more, like tips on choosing the freshest, juiciest produce, and clever ideas for (almost) effortless summer parties. Best of all, every recipe is 400 calories or less, so you can eat well without gaining an ounce.

Purchase this special edition for only $9.99 at your local supermarket or bookstore, or buy a digital edition at or

My Take on the Bookazine
This was a great publication that had so many recipes that not only look great, but I have tried two of the recipes and they were not only easy to make, but also they were delicious. I love bookazines like this that make meal-making so easy and make you look like an expert chef. I hope that Heart Publications continue to bring such great recipes together in the future too!
