Summer Lovin'!

Summer Lovin'....
It's here! It's finally here!  Sweltering heat...just beckoning that cold, umbrella clad drink... 
Or perhaps that perfect, golden ear of corn...
What kind of food do you bring while basking in the sun and digging your toes in the sand?


What hits the spot after relaxing by the pool...or playing hard and making waves?


Do you crave something seductive and sexy on those romantic summer nights...


...those suuuu-huuuu-merrrrr niiiiii-hiiiiii-hiiiii-oooooooooohhhhhh.....
Hooray for summertime!!  It's the first day of summer...can you feel it in the air!?  What kind of food or drinks do you start making this time of year?  Will it be an old summer stand-by?  Will it be something cool and refreshing...or fiery and hot?  Will you try something completely foreign to you?  It can be anything to welcome in summer and start if off with a bang...as long as it is a Mark Bittman recipe (or adapted from one)!!  How do you celebrate summer?  Come on, show us some of your best SUMMER LOVIN'...foodie-style ; ) !  ..........for those of you in the other hemisphere right now, just remember back and pull up some memories of your favorite summertime treats!

Make and post your Summer Lovin' recipe by Sunday, June 27th. Don't forget to link your post of the week below with Mr. Linky , so we can all enjoy your Summer Lovin' creation! Also, remember to leave a comment after you link up, we don't want to miss your post!

Tell me more, tell me more...
Love it!
That drink's for me, right?

debbie T said...

Zucchini Onion Pancakes. Yummy even though the outer layer was a tad on the burned side. Next time, I will definitely drain more carefully!

Joanna said...

Done! And I apologize to anyone who gets "that song" stuck in their heads upon reading my post!

Alex@amoderatelife said...

Hey Babies! Ah, summer lovin had me a blast! My recipe this week is Bittman's "traditionalized" (yep, i tweeked it!) Everyday Sourdough pancakes. I made them this morning for the girls in honor of the FIRST real day of Summer cause Schools OUT!!! Enjoy! :) Thanks for sharing the real food and Bittman LOVE! Alex

My Shredded Chicken & Veggie Wraps are posted! (Frozen Hot Chocolate will be posted on Saturday.)

girlichef said...

me thinks Zucchini is the common link this week...LOL!

debbie T said...

girlichef, I agree. Looks like zucchini = summer!

On a side note, I tried posting comments on three blogs, but I am pretty sure they didn't post. I tried using "name/url" from the pull down menu, and when I clicked either submit or preview, it disappeared.

I am using Firefox. I will have to mess with it later. bummer!

Sorry for the double post! The posts look delicious!

Debinhawaii said...

And my entry #2--Frozen Hot Chocolate is posted.
It's sure to cure any chocolate cravings out there.
;-)

girlichef said...

Care for some coffee? Or some ice cream? How 'bout some coffe ice cream? Come on over to my place!

girlichef said...

Hi Janet and thanks so much for joining, but unfortunately your links had to be removed since we are featuring ONLY Mark Bittman recipes/adaptations during this 6 month period. Please come back anytime and link up something by our featured chef, though. And your salad was gorgeous, by the way =)

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Beautiful dishes, everyone!
So summery and delicious.

My Strawberries with Swedish Cream are up!

The Country Cook said...

Posted another salad this week. It's hot in Georgia! Wish I were at the beach!

Debbie said...

Helloooo.... I got my post up, just in the nick of time.
I just got the cookbook in the mail, "How to cook everything". It's a classic, one to go right next to "the Joy of Cooking" etc.

Andreas said...

Waffles.

There are enough for everyone. ;)
