Enjoy These Fall Off The Bone Easy Slow Cooker Ribs
There is nothing more delicious than these Easy Slow Cooker Ribs. They literally fall off the bone, melt in your mouth and provide an explosion of tangy flavors! You can’t go wrong with these Easy Slow Cooker Ribs. They are crowd pleasing, husband pleasing and kid pleasing.
The key to this recipe is that there are no wet ingredients. Simply make a dry rub and put the ribs and place them in the slow cooker standing up. The juice from the ribs will provide the moisture that is needed to make mouth watering ribs. After they are done in the slow cooker, add whatever sauce you prefer then broil them for a few minutes or toss them on the grill for that caramelized sauce flavor.
Don’t Forget to Remove The Membrane
When my husband and I first got married, I tried several times to make ribs with no success. They always were too chewy and I just couldn’t even bite through them. Well, I wasn’t removing the membrane on the back side of the ribs. It’s a gross job, but if you want amazing ribs you just have to do it. I was going to take several photos of my husband removing the membrane on these ribs, but his big arms kind of took over the photos so you can’t see much. In this photo below you can see that pink fleshy layer and that is the membrane. Try to peel it up a little with a knife or push your finger under it to loosen. Then you just peel away. You may get lucky and it will peel in several big pieces or you may have some stubborn stuff that only comes on in small pieces. Either way, don’t give up until it’s gone.
Okay, now that we got that little lesson out of the way we can talk more about those mouth watering Easy Slow Cooker Ribs! There may be different seasonings that you prefer. Don’t hesitate to try out different flavors. I always use Sweet Baby Ray’s sauce, but if you prefer something else then give that a try. Play with the recipe, make it your own. Pair it with this Creamy Coleslaw or this Bacon Bowtie Pasta Salad and you will have a heavenly meal!
The best part about these ribs is that they don’t have to during the summer only. They would make a great addition to your winter meals when you already have out your slow cooker. Hope your family enjoys these Easy Slow Cooker Ribs as much as mine does.

When it comes to cookies I am not picky, I love them all, but my favorite are no bake cookies! I love the chocolate and peanut butter paired with oatmeal, it is the perfect combination! I wanted to share a fun new way to make no bakes, here is a crockpot no bake cookie recipe, I think you guys might enjoy!
Don’t own a crockpot? Then head over and buy one here!
I really love how easy it is to toss the ingredients into your crockpot and just let it do it’s magic, then stir and drop your cookies onto wax paper and your done! It is simple and painless and let me say the reward is worth it!
If you are wondering how this compares to the classic stove top no bake cookies, it is very similar! I found that the flavors were very close to the same. The texture was ever so slightly different, but not enough to really worry about! I think to me this is a winner recipe for ease and taste, and we will be making more of these in the future! I love to make these up and then freeze them, so if I am craving some sweet I can pull one or two out of the freezer to munch on!
Chocolate No Bake Cookies
With this recipe, you whip up the wet ingredients, toss in the bottom of the crockpot, then sprinkle the oats on top DO NOT STIR THEM IN), and dollop the peanut butter dab in the center and turn to high to cook. Within 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours when it bubbles on the sides, you turn off, add your vanilla and stir then drop the cookies on to wax paper to set up. It is so easy, I mean genius! If you are not good at baking this is kind of fool-proof which is awesome!

Easy peasy like I said, and super delicious! I hope you all enjoy this recipe, and make sure to check out all the other recipes we have up for grabs!
I use my crockpot a lot, it makes life easier to toss stuff in, turn to low and leave for the day, then dinner is made for the night. But, I have began to venture out and try new recipes that are desserts like this crockpot rice pudding! It is really delicious and I love the hint of vanilla and cinnamon in it. Really hits your taste buds nicely! Growing up we ate rice and raisins a lot for breakfast, and had rice pudding here and there, it was always a treat. I wanted to make this and see what Clay thought, cause I love having memories of my past to be able to carry on to Clay!
The rice pudding turned out amazing and when it was done I spooned into individual containers and served it nice and warm. I love to dust it with a little cinnamon on top, it adds a new dimension of flavor to it, and looks really pretty! This recipe is really good. Now it isn’t very creamy, it is more milky, you want that milk mixture in your bites because it is full of sweetness! I think if it were cooked in the oven, you would get that creamy flavor but crockpot cooking always changes the texture of foods, I have found.
Clay found this recipe to be a winner, he actually was wanting more of it. It was a little surprising as he tends to be a little indifferent with new foods, so I take this as a win! I will for sure be making the recipe over and over through the years, it will be an easy recipe to teach Clay to do when he gets older!
