With New York Harbor As Her Backdrop, Queen Of The Grill, Author Elizabeth Karmel   Will Show You How To Grill And Personalize Your Own Mouth-Watering Pizza - Pizza is, hands-down, America’s favorite food, and grilling is America’s favorite cooking method. What happens when you combine America’s favorite way to cook with America’s favorite food?! You get grilled pizza, one of the most popular and delicious trends in food.  Elizabeth Karmel, a.k.a. Queen of the Grill and author of “Pizza on the Grill” shows you just how easy it is to make pizza in your own backyard. “Once you eat grilled pizza, you’ll never want to eat it any other way,” says Elizabeth. “The crispy crunchy, slightly smoky crust topped with your favorite cheese, meats and veggies is a revelation for pizza lovers.”  Because pizza dough used to take 2-3 hours to prepare and rise, many of today’s home cooks turn to the phone instead of their own grill – they don’t realize how easy it is to fresh-grill pizza in their own backyard. Elizabeth will share her secrets on how to now make the perfect dough every time, with no more waiting! She’ll give tips on using the grill to make the easiest, crispiest, lightest pizza conceivable.
Bobby Eagan - "Eating with The Enemy"
The Incredible True Story Of The New Jersey BBQ Joint Owner From The Wrong Side Of The Tracks Who Is Repairing Relations Between The US And North Korea!  Bobby Egan grew up in the mean streets of working-class Fairfield, New Jersey where he once mowed the lawn of Bobby Vesco. A high school dropout and rehabbed drug abuser, Egan never could have imagined that one day he would set out on a mission to improve relations between the United States and North Korea. He has accomplished what U.S. diplomats and the State Department would not and could not do: he extended an olive branch to a hostile regime in the dual hopes of seeking out information on POW/MIAs and normalizing relations between hostile countries in the nuclear age. His incredible story is wonderfully told in his memoir, EATING WITH THE ENEMY: How I Waged Peace with North Korea from my BBQ Shack in Hackensack.
