When I was younger, I wasn’t a huge potato salad fan. Even my Mom’s, and she went the whole route with homemade mayonnaise and everything. But I appreciate it more, now, and I especially appreciate it when its a lot easier than Mom’s. And I appreciate it when it’s this creamy, Classic Potato Salad, 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.
When I was down in Georgia, my daughter and I were in the kitchen when she took a few minutes to sort out her pantry. With all the wedding preparations, visitors doing the shopping and cooking, adding and using things, she was just about fit to be tied. One thing she had in abundance was chickpeas. And when she asked me about using the Instant Pot for them, I knew I had to get this post on Instant Pot Chickpeas out.
There’s no doubt summer is here, even in Minnesota, where for the most part it’s been cool. And there’s no doubt Father’s day is just around the corner, too, this Sunday. Father’s day always makes me think about being outside, maybe barbecuing, and barbecuing makes me think about ribs. I mean other than a big T-bone there’s not much more manly than Ribs! And if you’re looking for something different, take a peek at these Spicy Jerk Ribs with Sweet Chutney Glaze.
I’ve been on a mission to post out some no effort Instant Pot recipes that I think my daughter and her fam will love, and I hope you might, too. See, my daughter was married recently, and her blended family consists of seven children ranging from toddler to teenager! I’m still a bit boggled by it all, but Southwestern Chicken Instant Pot Bowls are the kind of recipe I think almost anyone will love. The prep is nominal, the cook time short, clean up is a breeze and the results? Delish. These bowls are perfect for summer – or anytime.
