Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Bacon. Chicken. Olives. Artichokes. Sun-dried tomatoes.  These are a few of my favorite things!  How could putting them all together be a bad thing?  I had originally planned to do this in my magic pot but once you see the pictures, you will understand why I couldn’t. I get my chicken and bacon from Zaycon.  That…

Bacon! Bacon! Bacon!

We are a bacon-loving family around here.  Especially this time of year when we are enjoying wonderful home-grown tomatoes.  Nothing goes with bacon as well as tomatoes, lettuce and mayo on toasted bread!  We were talking about bacon at lunch the other day and I discovered not everyone knows about BAKING bacon.  It is my…

Tastefully Simple Chicken White Chili

Do you like spicy?  I’m not much of a spicy fan.  The great thing about this soup is you can make this really spicy, with a kick or with just a little nudge! I cut 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bite size pieces.  I added it to the the Instant Pot along with 6…

A Roasted Rainbow of Veggies 

My poor overworked Instant Pots needed a night off!  This is a really quick post to show you my favorite way to make veggies! I rinsed and chunked up some Brussels sprouts (if you have never tried fresh ones roasted, you don’t know Brussels sprouts!) along with carrots, red onions and bell peppers.  I tossed…

Smothered Pork Chops in the Instant Pot

Let’s talk pork chops!  How do you like them?  I like thick cut boneless and those are HARD to find.  So what I generally do is buy a pork loin when they are on sale and cut my own.  That’s what I did this time.  I cut half into chops and left the other half…

Chicken and Quinoa Stew in the Instant Pot

Ever just throw stuff in a pot and hope for the best?  That’s kind of what I did with this recipe!  I wanted a hearty and healthy stew packed with nutrition to ward off all the evil sick-bugs that seem to be attacking from all sides this winter!  This really fit the bill.  It was…

Chicken Sausage and Bean Soup in the Instant Pot

I seem to be stuck in a soup and stew rut.  It’s just so cold and dreary–soup hits the spot!  And, I’m feeding a crowd these days and a big pot of soup goes a long way!  This one would be super simple and quick done on the stovetop since I used a precooked beans….

Corned beef, cabbage and veggies in the Instant Pot

Our New Year tradition is to eat corned beef, cabbage and potatoes.  I’ve always put the corned beef in the slow cooker early in the day and let it cook until evening but this is a new year and time for a new tradition.  Corned beef cooked in much less time in the Instant Pot!…

Freezer Meals!

I just hosted an online freezer meal workshop using the Tastefully Simple One Pot Meal Collection.  I have prepared 7 out of 10 of these dishes in the Instant Pot with fantastic results!  The other 3 were quick fixes on stovetop or in oven. If you are interested in seeing how simple they are to…

Tastefully Simple Creamy Shrimp and Crab Risotto

One of my favorite ways to cook in my Instant Pot is making meals ahead of time and freezing them and just popping them into my magic pot frozen.  I recently videoed the prep for all 10 of our One Pot Meal Collection.  Eight of those I froze in freezer bags inside an appropriate size bowl so…
