Mexican Ice Cream by Fany Gerson

This mouth-watering journey through the magical world of Mexican frozen treats has recipes that will transform your summer. Start with a classic like Tres Leches Ice Cream, then try something interesting like Goat Cheese and Hoja Santa Ice Cream or Spicy Watermelon Sorbet (it has serrano chiles in it!). This inspiring collection of recipes will transport you to that familiar hot and lazy summer day and have you screaming for some ice cream. - Megan

Anatomy of Sheds by Jane Field-Lewis

I could spend hours looking at these uniquely imagined workshops, studios, guest homes, and hangouts. The in-depth profiles of each tiny place are an endless source of inspiration for emptying your own shed and transforming it into an art studio or an eco-oasis house. A coffee table treasure, Anatomy of Sheds is an excellent tome on tiny spaces. - Megan

Soup of the Day by Kate McMillan

"PERFECT" and "AWESOME" are two words that come to mind when describing this book. I've already made half a dozen soups, including Hamhock & Potato Chowder (January 4th) and Cream of Mushroom (April 29th) and they were both delicious and easy recipes to follow. Because each day of the year has its own recipe, I've had the best time soupifying everyone's birthdays <3 - Megan

Parson Gray Trade Quilts 20 Rough-Hewn Projects by David Butler

Amy isn’t the only one in the Butler family with quilting chops! You’ll love these projects, made from large swathes of fabric big enough for a little instant gratification (as much as a quilt can lend itself to instant gratification) but interesting enough to keep you thinking. Just playing with color and fabric choices will multiply your quilting possibilities. Try Project 14 (Bullseye Quilt) in neutrals or monochrome for a modern feel, or go with rainbow for a fun color wheel! This is sure to be a new favorite on your bookshelf.  —Megan
