It’s Too Hot to Cook Recipes


Amy @ Bow of BronzeTop 10 Recipes to Beat the Summer Heat

Nobody likes to heat up the kitchen during the August and September heat waves here in southern California where we don’t have air conditioning. It’s perfect weather for cooking outside or just not cooking at all. Today we are sharing our favorite recipes for those days when it is just too hot to cook.

This summer I’ve been more intentional about finding meals that don’t heat the kitchen too much, since take-out all summer isn’t in the budget.

Meg @ Adventures with Jude — I’m Melting

When it’s the dog days of August, you do NOT want to be standing over a hot stove for long. Here’s a whole meal – salad, entree, and dessert – that doesn’t need to involve the oven!

Lexi @ Lextin AcademyCinnamon No Bake Cookies

We’ve made some homemade popsicles to stay cool, but the kids really wanted some cookies. So, instead of turning on the oven we tried a twist on the No Bake Cookie recipe that they love. It is now a favorite dessert at our house!

Jennifer @ Royal Little Lambs Hot Days, Cool Eats

When it’s hot, I don’t know about you, but I don’t even really feel like eating, much less cooking or even meal planning. I try not to use the oven in summer to further heat up the house. Once our garden kicks off, we eat from that – often raw.

Brandi @ Autumnfawn Lane — Berry Lemonade Smoothie

Three out of four seasons in the AZ desert, I make smoothies. While I don’t make them everyday, I guess I make them often enough for my kids to encourage me to open up a smoothie shop.
