Instant Pot Greek Gyros

Instant Pot Gyros: Under 30 minutes for the best Gyros made at home.

Okay, so the other night I was just hanging out at the Instant Pot Community Facebook page (can you say cooking nerd? and proud of it!) when my friend Tonya messaged me. We got to talking about what we wanted to make in the IP (we’re both exited about our IP’s) and she suggested Gyros.

Fruited Chicken Salad with Honey Dijon

Way back when, my sister and I were discussing what should be on the menu for a family get together and we got down to the salad dressing. “Honey Dijon?” I asked. It was kind of a new thing then. “No one likes that,” she said. But I didn’t say, “I do, I do!” And goodness help me, I do.  Home-made at least. Don’t tell my sis!

Watermelon & Tomato Salad

So a few days ago I posted the most marvelous Peach Glazed Pork Tenderloin. It was a huge hit at our house. What wasn’t a hit was the Watermelon and Tomato Salad. So I tinkered (and after the tinkering) loved it. And I made it again, today, just to be sure.

Bulgogi (Korean Beef)

Is it just me or is Korean food trending, now? It’s hard to tell sometimes because when I crave sumpin’, I seem to see it everywhere! I’m blaming Momofuku. I keep hearing so much about the restaurants and books and owner/chef David Chang.

Spring Mix Salad with Lemony White Balsamic Dressing

I love mixed salads and you’ll see a lot of salads on my blog – many with wonderful dressings and an array of gorgeous ingredients. This salad is a simple side salad, and every bit as scrumptious.  Spring lettuces, barley (or another grain of your choice) a few herbs, and a little Parmesan to dress it up.
