150: How to NOT to Cook This Summer

Filed Under:

Summer, What to Eat

Share This:

We see you, and we are you. We are also tired of cooking and out enjoying the summer. So this week, it’s all about how NOT to cook. Or perhaps more accurately, how to cook less, since we all still have mouths to feed and aren’t made of money.  But seriously, let’s keep it to a minimum. Here’s how.


Feeding our families cereal or cheese and crackers for dinner is not just a troupe for social media. We mean it when we say that if you’re lucky enough to have food on the table, it doesn’t matter what your family ate. This week we’re talking about strategies for cooking less, groceries to grab that make life easier, plus how to use your small appliances instead of the oven for when it is also too hot to cook.

Here are links mentioned in this week’s episode:

Light Ice Cream That’s Heavy on Flavor

Summer is here and we are whipping up ice cream desserts — from homemade ice cream cakes to shakes and floats — with our pints of Enlightened Light Ice Cream. They come in classic flavors like Vanilla Bean and Mint Chip, as well as impossibly indulgent flavors that pack in loads of mix-ins and swirls, like Brownies & Cookie Dough and Caramel Fudge Pretzel. Major scoopability and tons of dreamy possibility.
