Using your slow cooker for summer cooking

Most people don’t think “summer” when they hear slow cooker, but it is one of the best ways to enjoy healthy, homemade meals all summer long.


One of the biggest problems with cooking in the summer is the heat! When you finally get home from work and it’s so hot outside, the last thing you want to do is cook. Luckily there are some great tools to use for summer cooking (and grilling is the first thing that comes to mind), but what if it’s too hot to grill? Don’t put away your slow cooker for the season – it will be your best friend throughout the hot weather.

Most people don’t think “summer” when they hear slow cooker, but it is one of the best ways to enjoy healthy, homemade meals all summer long. Not only will your kitchen stay cool, but you can make big batches of family favourites!
