Do you make a conscious effort to use your oven more often in the winter and less often in the summer?

I don't think I try to use it more in the winter, but I definitely try to use it less in the summer.

Yes, I try to grill out more so keep the house cooler cause we don't have air-conditioning.

Not conscience effort. Just too tired and hot to eat big meals in the summer. More indoor time in the winter, more time to cook.

Oh for sure. We don't have AC so we don't use it much in the summer. In the winter at school, the dorm is either really cold or really warm. On the cold days we'll turn it on and open the door.

My microwave is also a convection oven.

It's used whenever it's needed to prepare food. The time of the year is irrelevant to that.

It heats the house up.

Uh yeah, but then your utility bill goes way up haha. Our AC was running the whole time I was baking and the house still heated up 5 degrees.

More in summer - I'd rather that than use the stovetop, which I have to stay near.

Yes. We barely use our oven during the summer. If we do, we use it early in the morning before it gets hot. We mostly grill or use a toaster oven.

If women did this more often, there would be a spike of births in the spring.

Oh, you mean the cooking oven! No, I use it just as often.

Is "use the oven" what the kids are calling it these days?? Ha I've never heard that one!

We use the toaster oven on really hot days.

My microwave broke this summer, so I used my oven MORE, at least until it was replaced.

This is why grills were invented.

The entire house heats up 10 degrees when it's on LOL

Not so much a conscious effort as a "damn it's too hot to turn my oven on."

That seems pretty conscious.

Haha but it's not an effort. It's an effortless reaction to my environment, you know? It's not like I tell myself, remember Ross it's summer, don't bake, it just happens less because it happens to be too hot.

I keep my home at a constant temp. Year round. So no, I will bake at anytime of the year.

Yes, years of living in AZ have made that second nature for me. I was tempted to make lasagna tonight, checked the weather, and started the crockpot instead. It'll be much cooler tomorrow, though. Bake away!

I just can't resist the siren call of homemade chocolate chip cookies! 😁😋😍

I know what you mean. I'm thinking of trying a lemon blueberry zucchini cake tomorrow when it's only in the 70s. It's not a batch of chocolate chip cookies, but I think it has potential.
