No-bake Energy Bites


Good-bye Cliff Bars and hello Energy Bites!  These are seriously simple to make and go over well with kids and teens alike.  Modify the recipe as you wish to suit your taste, just don't leave out the honey or else they might not stick together well.  These are great in the summer when your kids are clamoring for cookies but you don't want to turn the oven on.

Easy Slow Cooker Ribs



Love ribs, but don't have time to cook them?  This is the easiest method I know of and it yields very tasty ribs with very little attention.  The long cook time at low heat ensures tender meat that falls right off of the bone (frankly the ribs don't look that good in photos, but they're for eating, not for googling at).  You won't even need to equip your diners with a knife.  Add some corn bread and fresh coleslaw for a great meal. Yum!
