Beat the Heat!


Does the sweltering summer sun have you feeling a bit oppressed? Busy looking for ways to cool down? This week at I Heart Cooking Clubs, we are celebrating the dog days of summer with cool treats and light eats!! It's time to BEAT THE HEAT-- Mark Bittman style.

How will you choose to beat the heat? Will it be with cool treats like ice cream, milkshakes and smoothies?


Maybe you'll choose to stay hydrated with a nice tall glass of iced tea?


Perhaps a light summery pasta dish?


Or maybe even a light and delicate seafood meal?



Feel free to BEAT THE HEAT however you see fit, just make sure to make and post your Bittman recipe by Sunday, August 8th. Don't forget to link your post of the week with Mr. Linky , below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous BEAT THE HEAT creation! Remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post too, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

Looking forward to cooking Bittman with you all! Pizza is a great summer food - in the book he tells you how to make it on the grill.
