Keep Your Kitchen Cool with Summer Slow Cooker Recipes




July 10, 2013 – Summer is a fabulous food season with all of the fresh produce available! Whether you’re cooking up a summery weeknight meal or want to plan dishes for a summer party or potluck, your options are endless (and delicious). However, using a hot oven when the temperatures outside are steamy makes the task of preparing a meal difficult. Don’t heat up the house—with the help of your slow cooker, you can cook up tasty dishes without breaking a sweat. Our editors at are here to help you eat well, while keeping your air conditioning bills down! We’ve got a variety of ways to use your slow cooker this summer and have rounded up some of our best slow cooker recipe ideas in our latest free eCookbook, Summer Meals That Won’t Heat Up The House: 30 Summer Slow Cooker Recipes.


According to an April 9, 2012 online article from U.S. News & World Report, one can cut summer energy costs by avoiding using the oven.


“Step away from the oven,” said U.S. News & World Report writer Kimberly Palmer.  “Here’s an excuse to order take-out, or at least rely more on pre-prepared meals. Turning on the oven heats up the rest of the house, too, which forces your air conditioner to go into overdrive.


“If you still want to cook, consider an outdoor grill, toaster over, or even the stovetop, which gives off less heat than the oven,” Palmer added.


We’d add the slow cooker, of course, to Palmer’s list of oven alternatives and suggest you explore new ways to use your slow cooker this summer! Our summertime slow cooker recipes are expansive and so easy to prepare. With our latest free eCookbook, Summer Meals That Won’t Heat Up The House: 30 Summer Slow Cooker Recipes, you can plan all of your summer dishes for the season. Not to mention, many of our slow cooker recipes cook all day—so you can prep these recipes, and then spend time outside in the beautiful summer weather.
