Cookbooks that are focused on one or two ingredients can be hit or miss: It can be hard to feel as though you've gotten the most out of summer vegetables, for example, during their peak season. Authors Hallie Harron and Shelley Sikora take this into account and produce a book focusing on two summer favorites -- tomatoes and mozzarella -- making them useful (especially the former) year-round by taking into account canned and sun-dried variations.
The recipes range from quick meals -- like open-faced grilled cheese sandwiches -- and no-cook meals -- like a marinated artichoke salad -- to gourmet dishes that require more time, such as Stuffed Porchetta with Chunky Olive and Tomato Relish and Rich Tomato Pot Pie.
