I don't know about you but I hate cooking in summer if it means the kitchen becomes a hot and unbearable. I will often cook at night to avoid a hot kitchen until I started cooking with my crock pot. Unlike a conventional oven it leaves the kitchen cool but you can get a break from salads with great crock pot meals.
The crock pot gives off so much less heat so if you want to keep your kitchen cooler in summer then get out that crock pot you put away last winter. If you can cook it in the oven or on a cook top you probably can cook it in the crock pot too. Besides casseroles and soups you can cook roasts and desserts and even cakes and make great crock pot meals.
There are other benefits too like cutting down on electricity not only from cooking but on the air conditioner trying to keep your house cool. You can plan ahead and start your dinner cooking early in the morning when its cooler and have it ready for the evening.
There are also so many great recipes now for the crock pot including my own of course. You can get the vegetarian recipes here on the site by clicking on the image in the top right hand corner or you can get my books on Kindle. Click on the link here for my Kindle Author Page to see them.
The last reason for using the crock pot in summer is the easy clean up. Don't spend your precious time cleaning pots and pans when you can have only one pot to clean up. You have too many more enjoyable things to do in summer than clean.
Get your crock pot out again and start keeping your kitchen cool and enjoy your crock pot meals!
