One way people put their fully equipped kitchen to good use is by making light, fresh dishes, snacks, and apps in the warmer months that do not require a stove or oven. Even if it’s wintertime, these recipes will save on your next gas or electricity bill! Perhaps, best of all, little is more satisfying than freshly-made foods, like this guacamole.
