Even in my air conditioned home, I hate to use my oven during the summer. It’s just too dang hot.
So, here are my words of advice to help you get through these terribly warm times:
1. The slow cooker will be your best friend.
2. Rotisserie chickens are a life-saver when you need cooked chicken, but don’t want to cook your own.
3. Just eat ice cream for dinner. You can thank me later.
I rounded up some of our favorite recipes to help you turning these sweaty times. If you feel like grilling, be sure to check out our 50 Best Grilling Recipes.
And of course, don’t forget dessert. Thankfully, we rounded up 50 Easy and Delicious No-Bake Desserts to make your life even easier.
