Instant-Pot Recipes

We love our Instant Pot. While I had a slow cooker before, it rarely got used. Our Instant Pot, however, regularly sits on top of our counter because of how often we use it. I love that I can cook beans quickly, even if I forgot to soak them. I also appreciate that it doubles […]
