Hey Readers, This article was a blast to put together. I'm a huge fan of slow cooker recipes and though it's often more popular in the Winter I think it's even more ideal for Summer! Why you might ask? Simply because it's the best way to not heat up your whole kitchen; plus I'm often more on the go in the Summer so the fast to prep/easy aspect is perfect. Enjoy! Editor - Sarah
