We are following in the footsteps of readers Orchid64 and Aldyth, who are both using the slow cooker to make a weekend meal. The slow cooker is such a great tool year-round; in the heat it’s ideal because it doesn’t make your kitchen any hotter. We’re cooking up a fresh springtime stew with plenty of snow peas and bright vegetables. More ideas for cool springtime cooking below…

• See some friends and have some good conversation food.

Coconut jam! We already have a plot for this baking in the oven…

• Have you told us about your worst kitchen injury yet?

• Don’t forget – garlic scapes are in season – get them while they last.

• Here are some refreshing cocktails to go along with that ice.

• And if your kitchen’s cool enough, make a pie!

Edible flowers – so lovely and delicious.

• And finally, what are you doing for Father’s Day this weekend?

Those are just a few good weekend cooking ideas – what are you eating (and drinking) this weekend?
