Solar Cooking - The Basics

I'll admit to being a little on the hippy side, semi-tree-hugging and longing to live in a hut off grid at times (not at all times) but I also admit to being a bit intimidated by solar cooking. But after my interview with the Solar Oven President on my radio show Your Preparation Station - I had to have one. Am I EVER glad I got one!

So far for the last 5 days of sun, I've not run the oven at all to bake bread, make soup, cook beans and cornbread and broccoli and baked potatoes. I've only just begun!

I love how this has kept my house cooler (less A/C) cut down on one of the largest electric appliances being used (the oven) and been so user friendly for a variety of foods.

I am sharing my Sun Oven escapades on my youtube channel -

The truth is if I can do this...anyone can do this! 

It is my hope that more people will choos this as an alternative cooking option. Check it out for yourself!


Best Blessings!
