Ready, set, go--let's get cooking for the remaining weeks of summer! This month's cookbook picks provide a mix of farmers' market finds, cooking with kids, and an array of delectable desserts. While these cookbooks will keep you cooking all year-round, each contains summertime-specific recipes perfect for the hot days of August and the remaining bounty from our summer gardens.

At the Farmers' Market with Kids by Leslie Jonath & Ethel Brennan

This compendium of "recipes and projects for little hands" is utterly delightful. Trips to the farmers' market are not only fun, they teach kids where good food comes from, and often encourage them to try things they might otherwise eschew. Divided by season, the book is carefully thought out and filled with kid-friendly recipes like Sweet-and-Salty Dried Corn Bites, Strawberry Freezer Jam, Watermelon Gelatin with Summer Berries, and Five-Spice Zucchini Bread; as well as fun educational projects like Dried-and-True-Homemade Raisins and Blackberry Tie-Dye T-Shirts. Wonderful color photos by Sheri Giblin complete the deliciously whimsical vibe. - picked by Peggy Fallon

Recipes to try: 2 viewable recipes from "At the Farmer’s Market with Kids".

The Sugar Cube by Kir Jensen

If you think your kitchen is too small or not fancy enough to bake great desserts, consider this: Kir Jensen bakes amazing (and highly sought after) confections in a food truck! In The Sugar Cube she shares the recipes and techniques needed to make these great goodies at home. Her novel take on baked goods will make even ardent home bakers take a second look at this small gem of a cookbook. - picked by Foodie Pam

Desserts in Jars by Shaina Olmanson

Recipe servings vary from 4 to a whopping 18; and some recipes are simply baked conventionally and stacked into jars for serving, but there are still enough yummy concepts in this book to satisfy anyone's need for cute. Recipes for Cherry Almond Crumbles, Rustic Rhubarb Custard Pies, and Almond Poppy Seed Cakes are enough to send me to the hardware store for another box of canning jars. The book also contains plenty of tips and clever ideas for presentation; and a chapter on homemade dessert mixes decoratively assembled in jars for gift-giving will be especially inspirational around the holidays. picked by Peggy Fallon {pfCookbookRecipe 1424}

Hazan Family Favorites by Giuliano Hazan

The latest book by Marzella Hazan's son, Giuliano Hazan, is packed with his family's favorite Italian recipes, including those from his mother and grandparents. Following the traditional Appetizers, Primi, Secondi and Dolci format, Giuliano introduces us to classic Italian recipes as well as some more modern adaptations that are his own children's favorites. Both classic and new, I can't wait to try my hand at making dozens of these tempting dishes. - picked by Foodie Pam {pfCookbookRecipe 1406}
