The Best Crock Pot Summer Recipes

Well warm weather has finally arrived in Chicago and last night I made a mistake: I turned the oven on! Hubs is trying not to turn the air on so we grilled out except for one dish and I regretted it. So if you love the idea of slow cooker meals and hate the thought of turning your oven on this summer here are 8 of the best crock pot summer recipes.

It’s not comfort food time like stews and chilis. It’s time to break out the crock pot and make it work so you don’t have to turn on your oven!
