Memorial Day Recipes Crafts and Block Party

Memorial Day is next weekend, which means that summer is almost here. It’s crazy because I don’t think that mother nature knows that summer is supposed to just around the corner, she is definitely a month behind where we live! I love Memorial Day weekend because it really is the weekend that starts summer. Memorial Day is a great day to sit back and eat! Here are some yummy Memorial Day recipes and crafts to make next week.

3 Ingredient Crock Pot Ribs Recipe

Is there anything better than fall of the bones ribs? How about a crock pot recipe with just 3 ingredients that tastes amazing.

It's a keeper. Made this crock pot BBQ ribs recipe and it was so easy and delicious. Great dinner and perfect for entertaining.

This low maintenance easy peasy slow cooker recipe is one of my all time favorites. You pretty much throw everything in the crock pot and and you get some of the best ribs you have ever tastes.

New favorite way to make ribs. So easy and delicious in the slow cooker crock pot. Great recipe

It’s also super versatile since you can easily change up the flavor by changing your sauce at the very last step.

This is so good. Made this crock pot slow cooker ribs recipe last night for dinner and can't wait to make it again.

World’s Best Crock Pot BBQ Ribs Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 lbs Ribs
  • 1/2 C Water
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 2/3 C BBQ Sauce (plus more for serving if desired)

Directions

  1. Cut the ribs into 2 or 3 rib portions.
  2. Place ribs into crock pot, sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with the water.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  4. Drain any excess liquid.
  5. Cover with your favorite BBQ sauce and cook for an additional hour. I gently stir or spread the sauce onto the ribs to fully to get the sauce evenly distributed.
  6. Serve with extra sauce if desired

We love this recipe. SO easy so delicious now we can have BBQ ribs for dinner even on a weeknight.

I usually use a sugar based cheap grocery store BBQ sauce and this turns out fantastic. But I have been doing Whole 30 and I’m planning on making these later this week with a cherry BBQ sauce that doesn’t any any added sugar. If it turns out good I’ll definitely share the recipe for that!

Hand's down the best rib recipe I've tried and this is so so easy. World's Best crock pot BBQ ribs. So delicious and easy with the slow cooker great for weeknight dinners or entertaining.

World’s Best Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe

 


You guys this spinach artichoke dip recipe is pretty much party food/appetizer perfection. Plus it’s SO easy to make! 

My new favorite party recipe. This spinach artichoke dip recipe is SO good and easy. Perfect appetizer or snack.

Chips and dip may very well be my favorite food. Seriously I love a good dip with a crunchy vehicle but I’m kinda picky. Not all dips (or chips for that matter) are created equally. But let me tell you this one right here is SO good and it can be made in the crock pot if you want.

The best spinach and artichoke dip recipe I have ever had. Only takes 15 minutes and the recipe is crock pot friendly (but does not require a slow cooker)

Ingredients

  • 8 oz light cream cheese (full fat is fine but I used light)
  • 16 oz light sour cream (same you can use full fat if you want)
  • 1 stick (1/2 C) butter
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to remove excess liquid
  • 14 oz Artichoke Hearts
  • 4oz diced chilies , mild drained (don’t worry this doesn’t make it spicy AT ALL pinky promise)
  • 1 1/2 C shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 C grated Romano cheese
  • 1 TBS chopped garlic

A quick word about the ingredients. This does not have a spicy flavor or kick to it. But the chilies do add a little something to the overall flavor. I would serve this to the most spice sensitive people without worrying. 20 month old Teddy gobbled this down without a blink. Also you could just use all Parmesan cheese but I do like the depth of flavor you get by using the Romano.

This is a keeper. Finally a spinach artichoke dip that is super delicious and takes only 15 minutes. Also crock pot compatible

What to Do

Easiest Method

  1. Chop artichokes.
  2. Drain off any excess liquid from spinach and chilies.
  3. Combine everything in crock pot and allow to heat through (about 40 minutes).

Fast Method

  1. Combine the cheeses, butter, and sour cream in a pot over medium heat until melted and combined.
  2. While the cheese is melting drain and chop the artichokes and drain any excess liquid off of the spinach.
  3. Stir the spinach, artichokes, chilies, and garlic into the cheese.
  4. Serve warm. This makes enough to fill a 2 quart crock pot.

If you are not in a hurry you could easily make this in a crock pot and save one dish to clean. Just put it on high until the cheese is all melted through and then stir and turn to low or warm.

We make this spinach artichoke dip recipe all the time and people love it. the best party and tailgating recipe!

I took this to my husband’s work Christmas party this week and it was devoured fast.

It's a keeper this 15 minute spinach artichoke dip recipe tastes like you slaved over it. SO SO good. it's a keeper.

We had to leave early to get Teddy down and there was about one big scoop left and I couldn’t help but just take it with instead of leave it haha. I just finished it off as a blog writing snack and seriously reheated in the microwave it was just as good.

hands down the best and easiest spinach and artichoke dip recipe I've ever had

I think I’m in trouble with this spinach artichoke dip recipe it’s just too easy to make and so so good. We might have to pull it back out for New Years Eve if I can resist not making it again for Christmas ha!

SO good. We love t his easy spinach artichoke dip recipe. so easy and yummy also crock pot friendly but not required

Summertime Drink Recipes

I know it’s been said before, but we all know it’s going to be said again…probably in the next few minutes, so let me just get it out there; “It’s HOT!” I am not one to complain about warmth and sunshine and any excuse to sit by the pool…but sometimes you just need to cool down. My favorite way is with some refreshing summer drinks. My drink of choice is ice cold water, but sometimes you want a little sweetness with your cold drink, for those times try one or more of these yummy choices.
