The last thing most cooks want to do is sweat over a hot stove all summer. That's why a new cookbook, "Cool Kitchen," might be the book you reach for at supper time in the coming months.

The book, published by William Morrow and written by Lauren Chattman, ($22/hardcover) offers easy treats and cool eats, including "Summer minestrone," "Cheddar and Apple sandwiches with Honey Mustard" and "Tuna, Cucumber and Radish Sandwiches with Ginger dressing." The recipes are elegant but easy - making summer cooking a little less of a chore.
