Crock Pot Giveaway (Open to US only, ends 10/31)

Ultimate Crock-Pot Crock-Star Contest and ‪#‎Giveaway‬ ‪#‎CrockStars‬ unnamed

As you probably know from my recipe posts, I LOVE cooking meals in Crock Pots! I can put the meal in to cook in the morning before I head off to school, then dinner is all ready ready for us by the time I get back. It's simple, easy, and there's so many options (including healthy ones)!

If you're on the lookout for a Crock Pot, now's your chance to win one! I'm helping promote a giveaway that Kelly from Kelly's Thoughts on Things is hosting. Here's what she has to say:

 I absolutely love cooking. Food is a passion of mine, and I really enjoy experimenting with different flavor profiles and cooking techniques. I love using my Crock Pot whenever I can, just because it is so much easier for me when I have a busy schedule, I can put all my ingredients together set the timer and go. My family is still getting a wonderful home cooked meal and I save myself time doing that.   One of my favorite and delicious recipes to make is called - Fall Off The Bone Ribs. This a very easy 3 ingredient recipe. I love cooking this hearty dinner for my family and being able to make it in t acrock pot makes it so much easier. Check out my video by going to the link below.

Fall Off The Bone BBQ Ribs 


1 (2-3 lb) rack of ribs (I use pork loin ribs) 
3 1/2 cups pineapple juice (reserving 1/4 cup for later) 
1 1/2 cups brown sugar 
1 (16 oz) bottle BBQ sauce (I love Famous Dave’s Rich and Sassy sauce)


Spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (or use a slow cooker liner to make clean up a breeze!).

Take your slab of ribs (make sure that they are defrosted) and cut into individual slabs (about 2-3 ribs each). Throw the ribs into the slow cooker. Mix the pineapple juice and brown sugar together and pour over the ribs. Put the lid back on the slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 7-8 hours or LOW for 10-12 hours.

After they are done in the slow cooker, use tongs to gently pull them out (they will literally fall apart when you touch them). Turn the grill on medium heat. While the grill is warming up, mix together the bottle of BBQ sauce and the 1/4 cup of pineapple juice you saved from earlier.

Place the ribs gently on the grill and brush with BBQ sauce. Turn the ribs twice, slathering with more sauce each time (you can’t have enough sauce!); they will take about 10-15 minutes to glaze over (as soon as that sauce starts to turn sticky, you know they are done!).

  1. With soup season coming I can't wait to start making my favorite Slow Cooker Ham & White Beans. I love that you can just toss the beans in dry and let the cooker do its work.

    1. Oh yum! That sounds so good! Slow cooker meals are the best :)

  2. I love pulled pork in the Crock Pot! So easy and so tender!
