Beyond Books: Grilled Potatoes

I'm going "Beyond Books" again today to share a delicious recipe that we enjoyed on the weekend. Living in the south, we grill a lot, so we're always looking for new ideas. A few years ago, a friend shared a recipe for grilled potatoes and we have been making them ever since!


Grilled Potatoes

The first thing you need is a small cast iron skillet that can go on the grill, or a small aluminum grilling pan, along with some aluminum foil to cover it. (*affiliate links)

Ingredients
4 potatoes (or enough to fill the pan)
1/2 yellow onion
1/2 green pepper
6 oz Italian dressing (I use Wish-Bone Robusto Italian because it has a lot of flavor)

Instructions
1. Bring grill up to medium temperature.
2. Cut all of the vegetables into small pieces.
3. Add to pan and pour in the dressing.
4. Mix everything together well.
5. Cover with foil.
6. Place on grill and cook for about 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
7. Stab potato with fork to check for doneness.
8. Keep grilling and stirring once potatoes are soft to add a little crunch to the edges.
6. Goes great with grilled steak, chicken or pork chops.

  1. Sounds delicious! I never thought of using the cast iron skillet on the grill. I usually roast potatoes in the oven (cut-up, I mean, not whole), but this sounds like a nice variation.

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

April Reading Review

Where exactly did April go? I swear it was just the middle of March and now it's May. Once again, I'm going to provide a quick review of each of the books I read last month. For the last two weeks of the month, I participated in the Spring Into Horror Readathon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. The only rule was that you had to read at least one book that was horror, thriller, etc. I read one book that qualified. With the exception of the first book in my list, the books I mention below were read during the readathon


My book club's May selection was Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. I had started reading this nonfiction book about the author's work representing men, women and children who were on death row in March but finished the book in April. This is an eye-opening story that everyone at my book club discussion agreed should be required reading for law schools and police officers and even legislators who are making the laws related to judgements. I learned to…

Book Review: The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas

Tessa Lowell left Fayette, Pennsylvania, when she was just 9 years old, moving to Florida with her grandmother. Now she's a recent high school graduate and heading back to town to say goodbye to her dying father. With no family in town anymore, Tessa stays with the family of her former friend Callie, which is pretty awkward since she and Callie haven't spoken since they were little. Being with Callie also brings up questions that Tessa has held onto for the years since she's been gone. Questions about the testimony the young girls gave that sent a man to death row. 

I don't read many young adult novels, but The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas was touted as "the next twisted psychological thriller," so I decided to give it a try... and I'm glad I did. While the story moves r…
