151: How Your Slow Cooker and Instant Pot Will Save Summer

Filed Under:

Kitchen Skills, Summer, What to Eat

Both the slow cooker and Instant Pot are strongly associated with cold weather cooking thanks to how well they handle soups, stews, and other cozy foods. But if you ask us, anything that cooks dinner with a plug, is a summer lifesaver. Here’s how we use both kitchen tools to make summer cooking easier and way less hot.

Hot Cooks Summer

We’re hot and looking for any way to avoid turning on the stove this summer. Sure, we’ve covered our favorite ways to use both the slow cooker and the Instant Pot in previous episodes, but this week we’re really diving deep into how we use these small appliances to feed our families, preserve summer’s bounty, and even entertain.

Here are the 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.
