Cooking with sunshine
Have you ever wanted to bake when it was 100 degrees outside? Maybe you needed a cake for a summer birthday or some other crazy reason. Either way it is way too hot to be baking, unless you have central air. I don't. I am also always looking for ways to save money on electricity or just some strange new project to try. So I bought this book. This book teaches you how to build some simple solar cookers and how to use them. It is full of recipes at varying levels of difficulty. The recipes all seem fairly easy, I guess that difficulty level means how many hours of good sunlight they need to work well. Either way, this is going to be my project for the next few days. We'll see how it goes.
