What inspired you to write your book?
I love outdoor cooking. The grill magically transforms the food and cooking outdoors is a nice break from the kitchen.
About your Book:
Nothing says summer like a barbecue. But if you’re tired of burgers and need some inspiration, then look no further.
You’ll find new marinades and interesting flavors to transform your grilled meats and vegetables from good to truly remarkable – sometimes without any more effort.
All the recipes are made for the grill so you can spend your time outside cooking rather than inside the kitchen.

Sample Recipe or Food Advice
I think people often feel pressured to get a meal on the table asap but cooking doesn’t need to be chore. I’m all about delicious food that can be made as quickly, easily and simply as possible. Because while I love to cook, I also don’t want to spend all my time in the kitchen – or in this case, grilling.
What formats are your books in
How do you see writing a food/cookbook as different from writing other genres of books?
Everyone needs to eat. So why not eat, delicious, healthy (mostly) food all the time.
As Krista says, “When I cook I can’t help myself I cheat all the time. I cheat to save time. I cheat to save money. I cheat to maximize the flavor.”
Krista’s cheats are the shortcuts she has learned to help get a meal on the table.
Krista started cooking at a young age by “helping” her mom in the kitchen. She recalls many disasters and the patience and skill her mom deployed to rescue her attempts. She continued to learn by trial and error after she left home and as she become more proficient at cooking she continued to expand her knowledge and efficiency in the kitchen.
