Easy Cheesy Chili Mac - Instant Pot or Not

Easy Cheesy Chili Mac – Instant Pot or Not

If you’re a follower, ya all know by now that I was down in Atlanta at the end of May, early June for my daughter’s wedding. I miss those guys so much, Jess & Brandon and their combination of seven (not a typo – seven) children. And I vowed to get Jess going with the Instant Pot I got her one Christmas, just to try to make life a bit easier. Well, it doesn’t get much easier than this Easy Cheesy Chili Mac, which can be made in the Instant Pot or in the standard old fashioned way, stove and oven.

Naf Naf Lentil Soup

Naf Naf Lentil Soup Stovetop or Instant Pot

I’ve been meaning to post Naf Naf Lentil Soup for a while, but today I was inspired because it has to be the perfect after tax day soup – especially if you’re not getting a refund! Made in minutes with a handful of ingredients, it’s not only absolutely delish, it’s downright cheap to make. It’s modeled after the soup at the fast-casual restaurant, Naf Naf Middle Eastern Grill. I had to stop in a while back to try their Chicken Shawarma, but it was the Lentil Soup that blew me away!

Shortcut Philly Roast Pork Sandwiches

Shortcut Philly Roast Pork Sandwiches

I can’t think when I first got interested in the Philly Roast Pork Sandwiches. I’m pretty sure it was after I made Minnesota Bean Pot Cassoulet Recipe. I used a little of the pork from that recipe for this loosely based interpretation of the famous sandwich, so if you’re from Philly, just look away, now! Since I just put out a post the other day on Braised Pork Roast with Sausage & Cabbage, I thought that Shortcut Philly Roast Pork Sandwiches would be a nice companion recipe. Just in case there’s any roast pork leftover from that meal.

Braised Pork Roast with Sausage & Cabbage

Braised Pork Roast with Sausage & Cabbage

Usually, I think of long, slow cooking like Braised Pork Roast with Sausage & Cabbage in the fall, but a pot of this glorious dish couldn’t be better on a cold, winter night or a drizzly spring day. This is like Sunday dinner extraordinaire! You might want to try to make this sometime this spring (I’m posting this is March) before it gets too warm for a hearty dinner.
