Many people typically think of slow cookers as an appliance to use for winterish comfort foods like soups and heavy meals. When the weather gets warmer, the slow cooker goes in the closet until fall. In my humble opinion, this should not be the case. The #1 reason to use your slow cooker this spring and summer is that it won’t heat up your house like an oven or stovetop! You can still eat lightly and healthily as well. You can still have the convenience of the slow cooker for the busy summer days. Some of my favorites are the:
Garlic Pepper Sauce , use your fresh veggies from the garden
Hawaiian Haystacks, a new crockpot twist on an old family favorite
Chalupa, just looking at this recipe is making my mouth water
and don’t forget the best ever Cafe Rio Chicken, no comment necessary on that one!
So… don’t forget your slow cooker is your new best friend this summer (next to the grill, of course).
