44 Easy Dinners That Don’t Use the Oven

Today I am sharing 44 easy dinners that don’t use the oven!
44 Recipes that don't require the oven

It is summer. Which means it is hot in most parts of the United States. If it is not hot where you are I am sure it will be soon. We still have the rest of July, August, and the first part of September to go. That means we still have a lot of hot weather ahead of us.

When the weather is hot, especially when it gets close to the triple digit number, the last thing I want to do is turn on my oven.

When I was menu planning recently I started looking for recipes that don’t use an oven and decided to put together a list of my favorite no bake recipes. By no bake I mean no oven.

Some of these recipes are grilled, some are slow cooked, some are cooked on the stove top, and a few are salads and sandwiches. All of them are delicious family favorites.

    So glad to see this, I get stuck in a rut this time of year when it is so hot. Thanks, Lynn!
    P.S. Miss you on periscope!

    • I am glad you enjoyed the list. This time of year I struggle with cooking. It is way to hot to spend much time in the kitchen. :-) And I miss periscope too. I have had a crazy summer and just have not gotten back into it.
