Memorial Day is over and to me, that means summer is officially here. As the weather heats up, I'm constantly searching for recipes that don't require me to turn on the oven. It's hot outside and the last thing I want to do is putter around in a hot, steamy kitchen making dinner and then sit down and eat with sweat dripping down my back.
Enter the slow cooker. I think this piece of kitchen equipment is totally underrated, especially in the summer months! But when you think about, it's the perfect solution to my problem. I can have dinner waiting for me after a long hot day and I don't have to use any large appliances that make my kitchen hot!
So I rounded up several slow cooker recipes that are perfect for summer. They're full of fresh veggies and other healthy ingredients your whole family will enjoy!
