Amy @ Bow of Bronze — Top 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.
LaRee @ Broad Horizons – Don’t Heat Up the Kitchen
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 Academy — Cinnamon 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!
Beth @ Ozark Ramblings — You Can’t Take the Heat and You Can’t Get Out of the Kitchen
Here are some of my strategies to put dinner on the table without heating up the kitchen.
Tess @ Circling Through This Life — Not Cooking in the Summer
Sometimes it’s just too hot to even use the crock pot!
Kayla @ The Arrowood Zoo — Keeping the Kitchen Cool on Hot Days
On those really hot days I’m just thankful for the a/c but I do still have to cook supper. Here are a few meals that we eat in the Summer months to stay cool inside.
Rebekah @ There Will Be a $5 Charge for Whining — Beke’s Lovely Overnight Oatmeal

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.

If it’s too hot to cook, why not pack a picnic?
Leah @ As We Walk Along the Road — Easy Meals fromLeah’s Kitchen
I was laughing when I read the topic for this week’s Schoolhouse Review Crew blog cruise. It’s rather humorous because I don’t do a very good job of cooking when it isn’t hot. But as I pondered the topic, I thought maybe I did have something to contribute.
