9 skewer recipes that are equal parts easy, pretty, and tasty

So, obviously, an alfresco dining situation is in order, and there’s nothing like a skewer that says, “I’m fresh, healthy, and colorful—snap a pic of me and then eat me up.” Not only are skewers easy on the eyes, but since they’re so simple to prepare (and clean up), you can probably sneak in a fun outdoor workout to your barbecue gathering. Sufficiently convinced that you need some skewer recipes for your weekend cookout? Here are 9 yummy skewer recipes to try. Guacamole Skewers It seems like there’s not a soul in the world who doesn’t like guacamole. Try this version, which includes zucchini, eggplant, tomato, and garlic. Vegan Satay With Peanut Sauce This combination includes veggies and tofu marinated in a Thai-style coconut sauce. The peanut and lime dipping sauce sounds good enough to drink on its own. Frozen Fruit Skewers This is the easiest way to make it seem like you spent a ton of time prepping for the party when in actuality, your 30 minutes of chopping work led to a few hours of me-time. This Thai-inspired recipe is actually three recipes in one: you get marinated turkey, Asian-style slaw, and a cashew dipping sauce that doubles as a veggie dip. Try this gluten-free, vegan barbecue loaf or this healthy take on coleslaw.

3 Reasons You Should Be Using Your Slow Cooker For Summer Recipes

3 Reasons You Should Be Using Your Slow Cooker For Summer Recipes. I bought too many cherry tomatoes again. With a bit of vinegar stirred in at the end, this slow cooker tomato compote is magic: Good warm, room temperature or cold. Most people use a slow cooker to braise big hunks of meat in the winter. Once you understand how to use it to its best advantage, you can deploy it to cook vegetables, fruit and seafood, using a fraction of the energy of the oven and without heating up the kitchen. You can make peach compote. You can gently simmer potatoes, onions and andouille sausage in Cajun spices while you’re at work. Drop shrimp and corn in when you get home and sit down to a full-on shrimp boil 15 minutes later—find that recipe below. And, shameless plug: If you’d like more recipes like that one, consider ordering my book, Adventures in Slow Cooking, which will be out in October. The Hamilton Beach Set n' Forget Slow Cooker is programmable, has over 1,000 happy Amazon.com reviewers.
