Easy Beat the Heat Crock Pot BBQ Ribs

With the impending heat wave we have been having I have not wanted to cook at all.   It has been so hot in my house that my normally very solid coconut oil is now a very liquid form. Turning on the oven makes me cringe. I decided I needed to cook my family something good for the 4th of July.  This was incredible and so simple!  I put them in the crockpot in the morning and only had to turn the oven on for 10 minutes.  They were so tender and delicious.

Easy Beat the Heat Crock Pot BBQ Ribs
inspired by Everyday Savvy
1 rack of baby back ribs
1 can pop (I used Dr. Pepper)
1 bottle barbecue sauce
1 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
salt and pepper

Season both sides of the ribs with salt and pepper.  Wrap the rack of ribs around your crock pot.  Pour can of pop over the ribs and then add the liquid smoke if you want.  Put on the lid and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil.  Carefully take rack of ribs out of the crock pot and place on the cookie sheet.  Cover with barbecue sauce.  Broil on high for 10-15 minutes until the sauce starts to caramelize (get sticky looking).  Remove from oven and enjoy!!
If you have time make Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce. It is really good on ribs!
I used two racks of ribs and the same measurements of ingredients and they turned out perfectly.

Total deliciousness!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home).

Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
