Potato Corn Chowder Instant Pot or Not

Potato Corn Chowder Instant Pot or Not

This year I was gifted some sweet corn, freshly picked the night before. First of all, there’s something magical about fresh sweet corn, but to think of it being picked, on a balmy summer night by the light of the moon. All of a sudden it seemed even more magical! Some of my Sweet Corn went to my Instant Pot Sweet Corn (love love love no pots of boiling water and the IP cooks corn so beautifully) and the rest, well it went into this Potato Corn Chowder Instant Pot or Not.

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites

I saw a comment once on another site from someone that said she was tired of food bloggers squealing about their recipes. I’m guilty, I know. Coz when I make something really good, especially if it’s really really good, I can’t contain my excitement. And if it has bacon? Well that’s worth a squeal or two, right? And these Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites are def squealable. If that’s not a word. It is now, lol!

Do you have your top secret Ninja ways to make plain old canned baked beans taste more like homemade? I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve, depending on what kind of beans I want. Most of the time when I’m Doctoring Canned Baked Beans, I’m looking for kind of delish New England style, a bit zippy, a little sweet and super flavorful and that’s what these are.

There are a lot of “holidays” in the Spring, but ya wanna know what one of my faves is? Waffle Day. It’s on March 25th but I celebrated it this year, early, with these glorious, crispy and fluffy Best Bacon Waffles! And then I slathered them with my Bacon Pecan Syrup (although I left the pecans out) and had my own little celebration. This is an excellent waffle recipe, btw, without the bacon, too. I like it even more than the Alton Brown’s Really Good Waffles that are already on my site.

We are having “Arctic Chill.” It got ccccold last night and right now it’s minus 11. And I have no right to complain because I live in Minnesota, but we’ve been so spoiled this year it’s a shock. We Minnesotans know that a real Arctic Chill can be 34 to 35 below, so there’s that. Maybe we’re actually lucky. But today I feel particularly lucky because I don’t have to go anywhere and I have a piece of Simon Pearce Quechee Quiche I’m going to have for breakfast!
