I have fallen in love. This is not a person I am in love with, rather I have fallen in love with my crockpot! Do you know how easy it is to throw the food in the crockpot in the morning and not worry about it all day long, go about your day and then sit down and eat at supper time? It is as easy as finding the right recipe.
Now, everyone loves a good meal on a cold winter day, but what about during the summer? Do you put your crockpots away for those warm months? Forget all about them? You need to change that!!! I have found that there are A LOT of yummy summer types of recipes that you can make, and keep your house cool from not using your oven or stove.
I have decided that I NEEDED to share some of these yummy, delicious recipes with you so that you could try them out for yourself.
First of all, I wanted to say, Pinterest is wonderful for finding recipes! I have a CrockPot recipe board over there that I keep adding to. But I also love The Frugal Girls! They have some of the best recipe collections I have seen! Have you checked them out yet?
Ok, my favorite summertime crockpot recipes!
Oh, how yummy!! One thing I like to do, is just before serving our drumsticks, after they have cooked all the way, is to throw them on the grill for 2-3 minutes per side. It gives them that grilled taste, without the dried out meat!
The first thing you think of when you read Hawaiian? Not cold, not snowy. Nice and warm beaches and sun. So this is a given for a summer meal!
Bacon makes all things good!! BBQ sandwiches are a wonderful summer dish with coleslaw and potato salad!
Another one of those summer meals that you love, but this time with a little twist! This is a yummy way to change up the good ole’ sandwich!
Sometimes even during the summer, you need that comfort food! This is one of those go to comfort foods that I love!
Ok, this is that one meal that is good no matter what season it is! My mom made it first and we fell in love. It is now one of those meals that happens at least once a month, sometimes more!
Yes, I am sharing a dessert recipe that can be done in the crock pot! Have you ever tried these? If you have plans to grill, why not make a yummy dessert in the crock pot to go with the meal?!
It is so easy to use your crockpot all year long! I hope you don’t hide that wonderful appliance just because it is summertime!
