I’m a huge fan of Lo Mein so when a friend mentioned she saw a recipe for Instant Pot Lo Mein, I was wowed. Could I make a Fast Fresh Instant Pot Lo Mein?

Minnesota Cassoulet "Bean Pot"

Minnesota Cassoulet “Bean Pot”

It’s easy to always think about St. Paul & Minneapolis, the Twin Cities, as a Swedish/Norwegian city and we do have a large population. Maybe our weather made them feel at home. But it’s just as easy to forget that our earliest settlements were French and/or French Canadian. So in honor of our French, here’s a “Bean Pot” or if ya want to be fancier, I’ll just call this a Minnesota Cassoulet Bean Pot.

Crispy Zucchini Fritters

Crispy Zucchini Fritters

I had a couple zucchini in my fridge. I know I bought them for something specific, but who knows what that was! I usually have a menu for what I plan to eat & make, but in typical fashion, lost the list. Oh, the joys of getting old! But that all might have been for the best because instead, I made Crispy Zucchini Fritters.

That Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe

That Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe

Not too long ago, I posted out the recipes I have on my site that were made with Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix. Or rather, my Homemade Onion Soup Mix recipe. There were quite a few more than I thought I had on my site, but there was one glaring omission. I’ve never posted it because it’s so easy, it’s hardly a recipe. It’s that Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe from the 60’s.

Classic Marinated Carrots

Classic Marinated Carrots

I wasn’t sure whether to call these Old Fashioned Marinated Carrots or Classic Marinated Carrots, but either way they’re delicious, especially in the Summer. They’re cool and refreshing. The Marinade is almost like a tangy Catalina (or “French” dressing, if you’re as old as I am) and they’re the perfect thing for a summer picnic or potluck.

Chicken Chickpea Orecchiette Pasta Soup

Chicken, Chickpea & Orecchiette Pasta Soup

Hey, ya’ll, I hope you’ll forgive another soup recipe if it’s 80 degrees where you are, but seeing as we have tons of snow I’m still in full on comfort mode. But maybe no matter what the temp is where you are, you’ll want to try this Chicken, Chickpea & Orecchiette Pasta Soup. Can I say Hygge? I feel a little silly when I get all trendy and say things like Hygge, but look it up. This soup will be in the definition.

Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot

Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot

So hey, here I am a Minnesota blogger and I have no Wild Rice Soup on my blog. Uff da. Well, I do have a Wild Rice and Smoked Turkey Chowder (amazingly good and healthy!) but it’s just not the same as a Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot, now is it? (As a quick aside, I will be posting recipes that aren’t Instant Pot and aren’t soup, it’s just been a crazy Holiday week, so if you don’t have an “IP” please bear with me!)
