Have you ever cooked corn in a slow cooker?
My family loves corn on the cob. Nothing reminds me more of a great BBQ than a buttery corn on the cob.
During the summer months, however, boiling water on the stove is not appealing because it heats up the whole kitchen. This is where the slow cooker comes in! This recipe is so easy—a real “fix it and forget it” recipe—and great for making ahead for those busy weeknights!
Do you find yourself lacking the time and energy to make a good lunch for your kids because of all the late-night chaos? MOMables can help get you back on track and get you easy recipes for delicious lunch box meals! Check it out!
Plus, making corn on the cob in the slow cooker allows you to make each corn to everyone’s taste! I simply add butter to the kids’ corn and season the ones for my husband and me with coconut oil, garlic salt, and pepper. I stack the corn on the cob with the most seasoning on the bottom of the crockpot and let the “plain” ones sit up top so the seasoning does not accidentally mix.
Not enough time to prep the corn the same day? Simply husk and wash the corn the day before, add butter/oil, and seasonings, wrap in foil, and grab them the next day and throw them in the slow cooker!
Do you ever under or over cook rice?
Rice makes such a great, quick and easy side dish. Unfortunately, many struggle to get the results they’re looking for when making rice: tender, fluffy, and not sticky or gooey.
What else do you need help cooking? Breakfast, lunch, or dinner? MOMables has recipes and tips for all things lunchbox!
What often happens is that families resort to instant rice from a box because it just isn’t working out. Of course, another easy answer to this problem would be to purchase a rice cooker. If you are like me then that option just isn’t in the budget.
I’m here to share some tips on how to make perfect rice that doesn’t involve an instant box mix and doesn’t require a special appliance.
Now you’re ready to dig in!I promise, you’ll never want to go back to a box of instant rice again!

Want a versatile dish that is easy to make and healthy all at the same time?
Cold pasta salads are a summer must at my house. Perfect for a get-together, as a side dish for something hot off the grill, and (my personal favorite) in the lunch box!
Cauliflower has always been one of my favorite vegetables; this low-calorie veggie is an excellent source of vitamins C and K, as well as antioxidants and fiber.
If you have picky eaters, it’s easy to sneak in because it’s crunchy, doesn’t have a strong flavor, and it’s not green!
I’ve been making this particular pasta salad since I was a teenager because it was easy to make with my then-limited kitchen skills. The concept is similar to that of macaroni and potato salad; it has simple ingredients and is always more delicious after being chilled for at least 2 hours.
I even make a gluten-free version of this recipe now, using corn or quinoa noodles. It’s easily adaptable to meet your gluten-free needs.
This recipe yields approximately 10 to 12 half-cup servings.
