We don’t store away our slow cooker for the summer. While the slow cooker is synonymous with saving time putting together an elaborate meal…and in the summer when my kids are home, I have less time (and patience) than ever to spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing meals. I keep my slow cooker out on the counter year round, and in the summer, I prep easy and quick recipes mid-morning so I can take it easy until dinnertime. There’s nothing better than coming home from the pool to a meal that’s waiting for us.
Don’t let summer get the best of you! Stay cool this summer and away from the oven by cooking in your slow cooker. Minimal heat, minimal time, maximum flavor. Check out my favorite summer slow cooker recipes in the slideshow.
