The beginning of June I challenged myself to use my Sun Oven and cook something every day we had sufficient sun. Since then we have only had three days where the weather was cloudy or rainy with not enough sun to cook. Some days started out cloudy and wet, but cleared enough to bring out the oven. Some days I was only able to cook a little, some days more. I've cooked everything from Turkey Dinner to cookies; baked potatoes and hard-cooked eggs for potato salad, rhubarb pie, batches of zucchini bread, casseroles, and warming up the leftovers. I even bottled apricots and tomatoes then sun dried some zucchini, kiwi, pineapple, tomatoes, and mushrooms.
Part of my goal was to not use my house oven at all during the summer. I have only had to turn it on once when I was baking pizza outside and we lost the sun. My pizza was only half baked and could not finish, so I had to bring it inside to finish it up. My kitchen has stayed cool this summer which has saved on our cooling bill. That's a good thing.
