It appears that summer has officially arrived, at least here on the East Coast. Temperatures are creeping up into the upper 90's and people are already complaining about the heat. Thankfully, I'm one of those who loves hot weather (the hotter the better, actually) so these are the days that I love. I know my friends think I'm crazy, but I love that feeling when you walk out of an air-conditioned place out into the heat and it's so hot and humid you can barely catch your breath.

In honor of the heat, I thought I'd do another round-up. Since the last one, "Behind the Apron," was so successful, I thought I'd throw out another opportunity for other food bloggers and readers to get involved. This time, I'm looking for your best frozen concoction recipes. I'm talking sorbets, I'm talking granitas, I'm talking frozen smoothies - anything that's icy cool and refreshing, I'm looking for it. If you've got a favorite popsicle recipe or a frosty icy beverage - bring it!

The deadline for entries is June 29th. Submit the URL to your post, your name and location, as well as the name of your blog to 28cooks AT gmail DOT com. Feel free to snag the banner and place it in your entry or on your blog. Please make sure to place a link to this round-up somewhere in your post. The round-up will be posted on July 2, in plenty of time for your 4th of July picnics or any other summer gathering you're going to.

Great event! Perfect for down here. Unfortunately, I am going to be away the rest of the month and won't get to create something. But, I am looking forward to the round-up as I get back!

I just love a good summer-time cool treat, so I just entered! Summer is my favorite season, and I can't wait to be inspired by everyones' concoctions!
