Cool Cooking For Warmer Weather
(NAPSA) - When it's too hot to use your oven to cook, a smart idea is to start using your slow cooker.
That way, you not only avoid heating up your kitchen, you help save on your energy bills as well. Cooking in a slow cooker for six to eight hours uses only about one-fourth of the energy that cooking the same dish in an electric oven for one hour would.
What's more, a slow cooker works well at outdoor gatherings for barbecued beef or baked beans.
