Cooking is a commonsense practice, not alchemy. Listening and watching closely while you cook will reveal a richly shaded language understood by all the senses - the degrees of a simmer, the aroma of a roast telling you it is done, the stages of elasticity of kneaded dough, the earthy scent of a vegetable just pulled from the ground - it is everything to mind these details. This is cooking. ~ Chez Panisse Cookbook

Last night we grilled for dinner! I made herb grilled shrimp, and grilled corn from the farmers market. I also made a simple salad to go along with it, and this bread from 101 cookbooks.
