Sometimes in the summer you’re lucky enough to grill, but for most of us, that’s not a reality on most weeknights. Good news! Even though you may think of the crockpot as our trusty soup and stew maker in the fall and winter, it’s also a great tool for making tasty and healthy summer meals for your family, without turning up the heat.
