It’s Summer, Turn off the Oven!

‘Tis the season for no-bake treats. When the sun is out and the water hose is set up for kids to happily race through its cooling droplets, the last thing you want to worry about is a hot oven.

Also, your air conditioner should be cooling you, not competing with the kitchen.
