Meet Crystal & Co Week 7


7 Easy Recipes- Perfect for Busy Moms I am a mom of five. I get it- life is busy. We need easy recipes- especially during the busy school week. But that is not the only time. What about when you're invited to a potluck? What about when you're hosting a crowd and want an easy dessert? The crockpot is a lifesaver in my house. Today I want to share with you some easy recipes that help simplify my life. Did I mention short ingredient lists are important to me when it comes to busy week night dinner ideas? I hope you find something new you can add to your recipe rotation.

    1. Crockpot Ravioli- this is the most viewed recipe on my site. Super simple- take frozen ravioli, add your favorite spaghetti sauce and toss this in you crockpot. Cooks in just a few hours.
    2. Apple Butter Crescent Rolls- this is a simple dessert that is made of apple butter, crescent rolls and powdered sugar. This would be a yummy dessert for a crowd or to serve with your Thanksgiving dinner.
    3. Honey Catalina Chicken- two ingredients and your crockpot. Dinner could not be easier. Did I mention this chicken comes out incredibly tender?
    4. Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Casserole- crowd-pleaser indeed. Serve this with a salad and dinner is done.
    5. Crockpot Blueberry Cobbler- yes, you can make a cobbler in the crockpot. Who knew? You can easily change out the fruit to one of your choice if blueberries are not your favorite. Next time there is a family gathering, offer to bring the dessert.
    6. Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip- this stuff is amazing. You can substitute the mayo for cream cheese. Delicious dip that is perfect for a family game night.
    7. Easy Pasta Casserole- This is a baked dish that comes together quickly and is perfect for a busy school/work night. The ground Italian sausage gives the casserole a gourmet flavor.
