“Home cooking is a great way to make healthy meals for your family, but wasting energy through careless cooking habits is not so hot. By following a few simple practices, you can avoid overstuffing your energy bill.
Cover pots and pans; foods will cook more efficiently and the kitchen will stay cooler in the summer.
