Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

If you are a reader of my blog then you already know how smitten I am with my Instant Pot. It’s been a real game changer, not only with saving time but also with meal prep. It’s absolutely perfect for making things like soups, stews, bone broth and more for make-ahead meals that will feed your family.  This past weekend I taught an Instant Pot 101 workshop that was sponsored by Wild Harvest®, a brand I’ve been working with for the past couple of months. Wild Harvest® has hundreds of items across the grocery store that are great to have on hand in your pantry, and they don’t make you choose between your health and your wallet. Organic and better for you foods can sometimes be a bit pricey, but Wild Harvest is dedicated to making better for you choices that are reasonably priced. Plus, their products are free from over 140 undesirable ingredients that are commonly found in many other brands, and nearly 70% of what they make is certified organic. Better for you + affordable = a winning combination!

Super Simple Homemade Vanilla Almond Milk

There was a time in my life when the idea of making my own almond milk would have been unimaginable to me.

Creamy Winter Vegetable Soup

It's official: I am obsessed with my Instant Pot. For those of you who don't already know about the cult of the Instant Pot, it's an electric pressure cooker that can also be a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a yogurt maker (haven't tried that yet) and it has a sauté feature. It's freaking awesome! I got mine about 14 months ago and while I used it sporadically for the first 9 or 10 months I got really into in this past fall and now it's seeing some action at least a couple of times per week.

Homemade Pesto

A long time ago I read somewhere that it was better to buy carrots in a bunch with their tops attached because it meant that the carrots were fresher and tastier. I have been doing this for years and have usually send the carrot tops into the compost or trash bin when I get home. But then a couple of months ago I stumbled on a recipe for pesto made with carrot tops that sounded great. It stuck in my mind, so yesterday when I pulled a bunch of carrots out of my garden I decided that it was time to give it a try.
