Easy Recipes for Busy Moms

Air Fryer Pork Chops: 

Ingredients:
     1 Cup Almond Flour
     1 Cup Parmesan Cheese
     Seasoning ( I like Paleo Powder or Kinders)
     4 Bone in or 6 Boneless Pork Chops

Instructions:
In a large bag, mix together the flour, cheese, and seasonings.
Shake until the pork chops are fully coated.
Place in air fryer at 360 degrees for 12 minutes.

Tip: Make sure you only put one later in the air fryer at a time.

 

Air Fryer Chicken Thighs:

Ingredients:
     4-5 Chicken Thighs
     BBQ Sauce or Seasoning of your choice

Instructions:
Place chicken thighs in a bowl or bag and add as much bbq or seasoning as your would like to coat all the thighs. Place skin side down in the air fryer for 13-15 minutes. Then flip and cook for another 13-15 minutes.

 

Crockpot Ribs:

Ingredients:
     Pork ribs  (your choice of what kind, usually go for what's on sale)
     Dr Pepper
     BBQ Sauce
     Optional : all purpose seasoning

Instructions:
Mix the Dr Pepper and BBQ to the consistency and amount you prefer. Add in the optional seasoning if you would like. I like to cut the ribs before putting them in the crock pot, but you can also do it after they are cooked. Make sure ribs are coated in the sauce. You can always let them marinate in the sauce mixture over night for some extra flavor. Pour a little DP in the bottom of the crockpot to prevent burning. add in ribs and any leftover sauce (even if you have to make more, it's important to have the extra moisture). Set your crockpot for the time you need. I put them in in the mornings so I would do low for 8 or 10 hours. When I get home from work I add some more BBQ sauce and let it sit on warm until supper.

Easy Sides:

Frozen Veggies- You can microwave or airfry them. So easy! I like putting Kinder's Buttery Steakhouse seasoning on them. Makes eating veggies yummy!
Instant Mashed Potatoes- Mashed taters in minutes.
Canned Baked Beans- Just warm them up in the microwave.
There are so many prepared sides by the deli at grocery stores.
