Grilling is, to me, aseasonal (as I'd don winter boots and a coat to do it in the snow) but it's extra exciting when the sun never seems to set. Since it's past time to pull out the grill and have nothing to do with the cooking apparatus inside your kitchen: Here are 25 recipes and ideas for the next outdoor party you're hosting or heading to.

Hot Breads!

Why yes, you can use the grill to make bread—and even if you hadn't thought to do that, you can grill already-made bread, too! Think flatbreads that pouf when they hit the heat, cast iron challah, grill-marked rustic loaves that you can eat with a slick of garlic and oil or tear into breadcrumbs.

Toasty Vegetables

Bright, bursting-with-flavor summer vegetables take to grill smoke like they take to vinaigrette or salt: happy and relaxed, with a little sigh of contentment. Whether you've got an abundance of fleshy friends like zucchini or eggplant, or spicy alliums, or greenies like romaine or snap peas, grilling gives 'em a toasty touch.

Sweets with Grill Marks

The sizzle and pop of the grill when something sweet, like peaches or watermelon, hits it is music to my ears. There's just something about the smell of caramelizing sugar that makes my not-so-sweet tooth get a little more excited than usual.
