Grilling doesn't have to rely on meat alone. While steak and burgers may be the first things that come to mind when thinking of outdoor cooking, there are plenty of interesting options beyond the standard grilled zucchini, peppers and portobello mushrooms (not that there's anything wrong with those reliable grillable veggies). Food & Wine Magazine's website has a nifty set of vegan recipes for the grill, which range from Grilled Polenta and Radicchio (in photo) to Spinach Fettuccine with Grilled Summer Squash or Grilled Broccoli and Bread Salad with Pickled Shallots.

My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
