I had no idea that it has been so long since I’ve posted on my blog. I’m sorry to have abandoned you the last few months. Hopefully you have been following along on my Instagram account as I am posting photos on there on a regular basis.
Today I wanted to tell you all about one of my newest, favorite, small appliances – the Instant Pot. You have probably have heard about it recently but might not be sure what it is. The Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker with other options included – like a yogurt maker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer and a saute pan. I have made a few recipes with my pot and over the next month I will be showcasing some of them.
I stumbled upon a cookbook by Marilyn Haugen called “175 Best Instant Pot Recipes” – I tried two of them already and I’m excited to give more a try.
This morning I cooked breakfast in my Instant Pot – Apple Yogurt Chia Power Breakfast. A mixture of apples, steel cut oats, cinnamon, brown sugar, chia seeds, yogurt and walnuts (my walnuts had gone rancid so I substituted a small handful of granola).
For supper I made Orange-Glazed Pork Chops (recipe in the cookbook) and served it with some Green Beans. There was enough of the orange sauce left over that I used some of it for the green beans. Very flavorful.
Due to copyright rules, I can’t type up the recipe for you but I highly suggest picking up a copy of the cookbook!
The Cookbook is 240 pages with 16 color photographs. Retails for $19.95. ISBN: 978-0-7788-0542-7
You can find the cookbook at places where books are sold – Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc.
