Everything old is new again, at least it is in my kitchen. The neighbor passed along a lovely little George Foreman grill she had no interest in and although I can't take photos, text or place phone calls with it, the shiny little white griddle looks fine next to the juicer and food processor. It cooks a range of foods in no more than ten minutes and they are done on both sides with the juices dripping into a little tray placed at the front. Pluses: The food is juicy, cleanup is relatively quick and easy, the house doesn't smell of cooking, the grill marks are attractive. Shitake mushrooms come out ready to substitute for tofu. Steak and burgers are tasty. Zucchini slices are tender and juicy. Minuses: Breast of chicken is breast of chicken and no matter how I season or marinate it, it still tastes like styrofoam. The grill is a good hurry up tool for weight loss diet but once winter comes, I want to do my favorite more detailed recipes that I use for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet on the stove or in an oven Finally, I tend to use very new gadget on a daily basis for about two weeks and then rarely. Meanwhile, I'm letting George do it!
