Hired Help Highlights

Although the Fall season is fast approaching, the weather is still hot, hot, hot. Where is this heat mostly located? Usually, you can find this heat in your kitchen. Take advantage, in case you have forgotten how “not” to cook. Believe me, there is hired help.

First, you have the Crock-Pot.

This hired help is so obvious. All you do is give him the ingredients in the morning. He cooks for you without any heat on the outside. By dinner time, he has dinner made for you. How hard is this one?

Then, you have the microwave.

The microwave has food cooked for you in minutes. Again, no heat on the outside. All you have to do is make sure the container is microwavable. Voila!

Next, you have the air fryer.

The air fryer is nice to have when you want something fried, but in a healthy way. In other words, you are not dealing with grease, but using air instead. Air fryers are expensive, but they do pay themselves off. They do not let off heat on the outside.

Following, you have a toaster.

Toasters are nice for sandwiches. Also, simply just “toast”. There is no hot air that comes from a toaster.

Then, you have a blender.

Do you want some delicious drinks? Would you like a smoothie? Would you like a milkshake? Again, there is no hot air from a blender. Blenders are so nice for a nice and cool drink.

Next, you have a countertop burner.

Countertop burners are nice if you do not want to slave over an oven all day. I bought a countertop burner for $8.99 online. The burner is cute and does the job without heating up the kitchen.

Also, there are countertop ovens to use.

The countertop oven is foreign to me. However, if you just have to bake something, why not? For example, would you want to bake a pie? Would you like to bake a casserole? I do not think the countertop oven would be letting off too much heat.

Furthermore, you have a mixer and handheld mixer.

I do not own a mixer. However, I remember my mother putting her mixer to use quite often. I do have a handheld mixer I have yet to use. However, I have been thinking of using the handheld mixer for preparing dips, possibly tonight, instead of using a fork to mix.

Now do you understand you have “hired” help?

I just thought you may have forgotten about the wonderful ways of “not” cooking in your kitchen. Honestly, I lack common sense and usually am book smart, but not very intelligent. You might be very intelligent but simply needed to be reminded.

Just know, the “hired” help is always at your service, unless the power goes out!
