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…

Instant Pot Southern Green Beans - Delicious southern green beans - tastes like you cooked them on the stove for hours! Bonus points for PIP (pot in pot) rice!

Southern Style Green Beans & PIP Rice – Instant Pot

A long, long time ago my wife and I used to sit around and French cut a bunch of fresh green beans. Then she would cook them down Southern style (what other way is there, really?) with potatoes and she would make a huge pot of rice. It’s always been a favorite of ours, but it’s work dude. Frenching green beans ain’t quick! Cooking those suckers down on the stove ain’t quick! So one day I was bugging her to make some green beans and potatoes and she kept putting me off – too much work blah blah blah. I’m…

Kung Pao Tofu

Kung Pao tofu, cashew tofu, plant-based Chinese heaven – I’m not sure what to call this really. But it’s SO. ROCKING. This is not my recipe, this is something the wife whipped up one night. I’ve probably mentioned her love of tofu before. I can’t understand it but there it is, she loves tofu. It happens quite often – when I say “it” I mean tofu. She’s always trying something new to get me to love it with her. And baby, we’ve come a long way. This tofu take over started quite a few years ago when she cut it…

Fried cabbage - cruciferous goodness.

Fried Cabbage

Fried cabbage is one of those cheap, homey things that’s just … well it’s just makes you feel good.¬† Satisfied. Like you’re in your grandmother’s kitchen. At least for me it does. My wife calls this smothered cabbage. You might too, but whatever you call it, it’s delicious. It’s the perfect side dish for…well anything, but I typically like to make this when I make cube steak or beef tips or something homestyle, you know? But, I have been known to eat it over rice with a fried egg on top for breakfast. Just one thing before we get down…

Delicious, creamy homestyle creamed corn - So easy and so quick you'll never open another can again!

Homestyle Creamed Corn

IT’S CORN TIME! Specifically creamed corn time! And I love me some homestyle creamed corn. It’s so … creamy and sweet and savory. It just so happens the neighboring county to me, Baldwin County, grows the best corn ever. Big, beautiful Silver Queen corn and now is the time – the time to stuff lots of corn in your cornhole. (????!!!!!) Piehole. It also happens to be summertime. I think we can all feel that. But that means gatherings … of all sorts. And you know also that when you gather you gotta bring a dish. But you don’t want…
