Firing up the stove is my least favourite thing to do in the summer. We don’t have air conditioning so heating up the oven means the house becomes unbearably hot. I lean heavily on my favourite Summer Crockpot recipes but now that I have an Instant Pot, I love these Summer Instant Pot recipes as well. Delicious dinners and no heating up the kitchen! I call that a win/win!
