Instant Pot Taco Meat - From Fresh or Frozen!

Instant Pot Taco Meat – From Fresh or Frozen!

So, tacos. We’re back on that. It’s always the same with me, tacos, tacos, tacos! But this time guys, this is traditional taco meat. Well, American traditional taco meat. You know, ground beef and taco seasoning. Truthfully though, I usually use a mix of beef and chicken, but more on that later. I love this recipe. I make it often because as stated, I love tacos, and I buy meat at Costco. It’s Costco man, nothing is little there – you know this. So, I always end up bringing home 6 pounds of ground beef or three pounds of ground…

Panera Broccoli Cheddar Soup - Instant Pot

Panera Copycat Broccoli Cheddar Soup – Instant Pot

Another Panera copycat soup? Yep. But this is everyone’s favorite, broccoli and cheddar soup – in your Instant Pot or favorite pressure cooker, and it’s dump. and. go. One would think I actually ate at Panera, but no. I never go there. I have eaten there in the past, of course, and get the soup on the side. You know how it goes. And to be honest, their broccoli cheddar soup is rather hit and miss. At least at my locale. Sometimes it’s just perfect cheesy broccoli soup goodness. Other times, it’s a thin watery mess. But then you go…

Best Ever Dump and Go Beef Stew – Instant Pot

So…best ever beef dump and go beef stew…big claim, no? I’m sticking by it though because it’s pretty bad ass. I’m not saying it’s the best ever beef stew in the world – I did specify that it’s the best ever dump and go beef stew. I mean, my mom’s beef stew was pretty rockin’, I gotta admit. I’m the type who likes to brown my meat, especially for a beef stew. But I didn’t want to fool with all that for this recipe. One night I just wanted to put the stew ingredients in the pot and be done…

Butternut Squash soup in your Instant Pot. Silky soup in 10 minutes!

Butternut Squash Soup – Instant Pot and Stovetop

Butternut squash soup in the Instant Pot or any old electric pressure cooker you have lying around is quite probably the easiest soup ever. The hardest part is dealing with the butternut squash and that’s not that difficult, people. I don’t know if any of you have access to an Atlanta Bread Company, but if you do, go there and get their butternut squash soup. It’s what dreams are made of and it’s what inspired me to create my own. (I don’t want to shell out stupid money at Atlanta Bread Company for soup all the time.) I’ve tried other…

This is my absolute favorite split pea soup recipe - the most delicious in the universe!

Split Pea Soup – Instant Pot and Stovetop

Split pea soup is one of my absolute favorite soups. Thinking back though, I’m sure I’ve said that about every soup that’s on this blog. I mean it this time – for reals. No, really! I actually only have split pea soup a few times a year because, well, I guess I’m a bit of a split pea soup snob. It’s only when I have a ham bone that I’ll make it – it just puts it over the top. I have made it with just chopped ham – still delicious. I have made it with Boar’s Head deli ham,…

Tacos Galore Roundup - A roundup of the most delicious tacos you will ever need in your life!

Tacos Galore Roundup

“I hate tacos!” said no Juan ever! And that my friends, is why I’ve put together this delicious round up of my favorite tacos. One day, going through the boring side of this blog, you know, the side that you guys can’t see. The side that sometimes looks like gobbledy gook. The side that has the numbers and stuff. Looking around, I realized I have quite a few taco recipes and I talk about tacos – a lot. I said to myself, I said, “Self, put it all together in one spot so people can see all the glorious tacos…

Instant Pot Cola Pot Roast - comfort food at your fingertips!

Cola Pot Roast – Instant Pot

Many, many, many years ago this cola pot roast was made in a dutch oven. I like…No, I love that method. Slow roasting just brings out something special in meat. I do still do it that way in the winter. Sometimes I do it outside over a fire. But what about the summers? Some days I want cola pot roast! So it occurred to me one day to make my favorite roast in my pressure cooker and it turned out brilliant. And it pressures for a fraction of the time of oven cooking. Gotta love that. I think I ran…

Nashville Hot Boiled Peanuts in your Instant Pot! Oh baby!

Nashville Hot Boiled Peanuts

I’ve taken the classic southern boiled peanuts and turned it up a notch. That’s right. Nashville Hot boiled peanuts! And let me tell ya, if you love boiled peanuts (I know, not everyone does, it’s a southern thing!), but if you do, Nashville Hot just takes it to another level! And…and…I forgot to tell you the best part: It’s made in the Instant Pot or whatever brand of electric pressure cooker you have! If you’ve never had boiled peanuts, you’re in for a real treat. It’s quite a polarizing food, though, even here in the south. You either love’ em…
