Summer Recipes, Cooking without using the Oven

Summer is here and with summer comes warm weather. I don’t like to use the oven when it’s warm in the summer. So, I’ve put together more than 80 oven free recipes. All of these recipes are oven free. If you need some more oven free meals for this summer be sure to check out these recipes.

When it’s hot out the last thing you want to do is to turn on the oven and heat up the house even more. Am I right?! I know during the summer and sometimes even on the hot days of spring that seem to pop up, I like to avoid using my oven. It helps to keep the house cooler.

I try to keep skillet dishes, slow cooker recipes and grilling recipes on my menu plan during the summer months. If you need a few new oven free menu ideas, I’ve got quite a few for you. I’ve put together a list of over 80 oven free recipes you can make. You could really fill up your summer menu plan with these recipes below and never have to think about what’s for dinner.

I’ve separated them out into six sections, skillet or stove top recipes that are made on the stove top. Slow cooker recipes that will require a slow cooker. Here’s my favorite slow cooker you can get it at Amazon. (referral link) Or grilling recipes for cooking using your gas, charcoal, wood fired grill or maybe even out camping. I’ve included a few no cook recipes too for those really warm days. Also life is sweeter with a little dessert every once in a while so I included some no bake desserts too.

I’ve also included at the end, a few of my favorite freezer meals that can be made without using the oven. This way you can have a few meals tucked away in the freezer for those busy or lazy summer days.
