Easy & Healthy Crock-pot Meals
I thought I would take the time to share some crock-pot recipes that I love or will be trying. I know some of you don’t have the time to research and look for recipes, so I’m going to do it for you.
I made Slow-Cooker Fall-Off-The-Bone-Ribs and it was delicious and it would go great with a side salad or corn on the cob. Skinny mom has other recipes so go check out her site.
Who doesn’t love Ham and to have it cook in a crock-pot, its so going to be so good. I haven’t tried this recipe, but its on my dinner to do list. This recipe comes from Skinnymom, she’s truly incredible. Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Spiral Ham
Slow Cooker Pepperoni and Chicken
Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Another favorite crock-pot dinner I have had in my home is a roast covered in A-1 Sauce, then cover it with aluminium foil and place potatoes on top (make sure the potatoes are wrapped in aluminium foil and cook for 8 hours. DELICIOUS!!!

Dinner at the Porterfields
Saturday morning I sent my sister a message to ask her if I can make dinner for her and her family. She was happy to say YES!!! I enjoy cooking for people and I enjoy trying new things. I got this awesome recipe from Kelly at No Thanks to Cake. I also made some dessert for them too and Grilled Caramelized Pineapple on top of ICE CREAM, so delicious.
Grilled Lime Chicken with Avocado-Corn Salsa with some grilled asparagus.
3 ½ Tbsp. fresh lime juice (from 3 limes)
4 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp pepper
4 (6 oz) chicken breast halves
1 1/2 cup corn
1 (8 oz) ripe avocado, peeled & diced
Combine the 2 Tbsp lime juice, 2 Tbsp of cilantro, 1/4 tsp of salt, and 1/8 tsp of pepper add to a ziplock bag and then add the chicken. Place the bag or you can use a bowl into the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. If you use a ziplock bag make sure you get all the air out.
To make the salsa combine the corn and the avocado with the remaining 1 1/2 Tbsp of lime juice and 2 Tbsp of cilantro, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp of pepper into a bowl. You can use corn in the can or fresh corn. I used Green Giant canned corn. I placed the salsa in the refrigerator until the chicken was cooked.
After 20 minutes take the chicken out on the grill and cook 10 to 12 minutes. Once the chicken is finished place 1/4 cup of salsa on each chicken breast and Enjoy.
