Though I was a late adopter, my Instant Pots have become indispensable. I now have 3: a 3-quart Plus Mini, a 6-quart Duo Plus, and an 8-quart Duo Nova…and I use them all. Frequently. I recently began cooking fish – both frozen and fresh – and the IP, to my delight, once again proves its value.Continue reading “Eat This: Instant Pot Fish”
Nearly a year ago, I posted my thoughts about whether or not I really needed another small kitchen appliance – specifically, an Instant Pot. I held off for many months, but finally bought one. And, now, I wonder why I waited so long.
When we first moved into our house, it had a dated and not very functional faucet fixture on the kitchen sink. I resolved to replace that eyesore ASAP, but didn’t want to spend hundreds of dollars doing so. Ever the bargain hunter, I found this nice-looking, brushed nickel fixture for about $60. It was easy to install and worked like a champ for 2.5 years…then it didn’t.
As someone who grew up eating fresh, local, wild-caught crab, I may be considered a bit of a crab snob…so when I saw Gardein’s Mini Crispy Crabless Cakes, I was admittedly skeptical. How could a meatless product be anything like a plump, tender crabcake?
We’ve survived another “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday.”..those post-Thanksgiving events where retailers incite the masses into an insensate buying frenzy. I’ve already groused about disliking “Prime Day” for using similar techniques, but I do have items that I idly watch (in my cart) to see if they’re offered at a can’t-pass-it-up price. Finally, one was: an Instant Pot®. It was a “Deal of the Day” for $69.99 (regularly $139.95 on Amazon).
We like our baked goods, so we recently purchased some cast iron pieces that we hope will replace less sturdy and often poorer performing bakeware, like our everything-sticks-in-them muffin pans. This time, we’re using a cast iron loaf pan.
