  • The Big Summer Cookbook by Jeff Cox– 300 fresh, flavorful recipes for those lazy, hazy summer days spotlights summer’s bounty of fruits, vegetables and fresh herbs providing luscious suggestions for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Special features focus on ingredients and techniques and a chapter on summer staples offers delicious spreads, marinades and sauces.  I love cold soups so I’ll prepare the sweet and tart gazpacho or the cold cucumber soup and settle in with our next selection:



  • In The Kingdom of Ice – The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of The USS Jeannette is historical adventure at its finest.  Award-winning author Hampton Sides, a master of narrative non-fiction, charts the course of the U. S. S. Jeanette in its 1879 attempt to reach the North Pole – a chillingly perilous disaster for both ship and crew.








  • Just in case you’re craving the ultimate cold finish to your evening, try a pop from People's Pops: 55 Recipes for Ice Pops, Shave Ice, and Boozy Pops from Brooklyn's Coolest Pop Shop by Nathalie Jodi, David Carrell & Joel Horowitz.  Formulated for the most sophisticated adult palates, these unbelievable flavor combinations include Raspberries and Basil, Peach and Bourbon and Cantaloupe and Tarragon.
