Thanks to Amazon Prime day, I finally got an Instant Pot. So far I mainly use it for cooking rice and making hard boiled eggs. I have to say it may be worth it just for the eggs! Oh, and I made some really delicious pork chops. The only thing I don’t like about the Instant Pot is the directions. It took some You Tube videos for me to really understand how it works. Now that I’m getting the hang of it, I am looking forward to trying some new and exciting recipes!
I picked up The Fresh & Healthy Instant Pot Cookbook at the library. This cookbook does have some simple instructions for how the Instant Pot works, and some great tips, like don’t place your pot underneath your kitchen cabinets, unless you need to steam off a sticker or something! I really think you can just read the beginning of this cookbook and skip the manufacturer’s directions. Another nice thing about this cookbook is the focus on healthy foods. There are a lot of veggies in these recipes! I will be back later in the week with one of the recipes I tried out.
In the meantime, I wanted to mention that the The Kitchn (probably my favorite cooking website) has started a cookbook club, and the first cookbook is the first book I reviewed on this site, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Go here to find all the details about participating. I will definitely join in!
Take care, and see you later this week.
