If you think crockpots are only for the winter, think again.  Here are 31 summer crockpot recipes inspired by BBQs, sunshine, and fresh summer produce.  YUM.

31 Summer Crockpot Recipes
Crockpot soups and stews and great, but I also love to use my crockpot all summer long.

Here are three reasons why I love using my crockpot in the summer:

  1. It keeps my kitchen cool.
  2. I can come home to a finished meal (no need to heat up the grill).
  3. I can prep a bunch of meals at once and freeze them to save even more time and money.

Hi Kelly,
Everything looks yummy! I would love to use my crock pot during the summer. I was just wondering what size Zip plastic bags you use. Are they the quart or gallon size?
