DH’s cousin has hosted holidays Easter, Halloween and Christmas, for as many years as I can remember. We don’t usually exchange gifts but I wanted to get her something that would make her life easier and as a token of thanks. So we got her an Instapot because I love mine so much, hope she finds it equally useful.

You are so thoughtful, Yada:)

I literally use it for EVERYTHING.. rice, hard boiled eggs, fish and veggies, frozen chicken, meatloaf, frozen premade freezer marinade meals for the weekly prep.. EVERYTHING and they aren't cheap.. you're a wonderful person she will love it <3

Dry winter house tip: after making breakfast save your orange/citrus peels: fill your instant pot and hit sauté. Add vanilla cinnamon nutmeg cranberries allspice and fennel or whatever yummies you have laying around and let that baby brew. Your house will smell amazing and dry air be gone <3

@stracci2000, if I could I would gift everyone an Instapot, like Oprah:

You get an Instapot
And you get an Instapot….:)

@YadaYadaYada I’m intimidated by them. I bought one but it sat in my storage room for over a year. I sold it on Nextdoor. I would like to try it again but I’m afraid I’ll blow up the house. :lol:

This was my exact fear too! I didn’t touch mine for a whole year after buying it but it’s just intimidating, it’s a lot easier and safer than it seems ;-)

If you can recommend a cookbook I would be grateful. If you have any favorite recipes they would be very much appreciated!

Wow, you do use it for everything. I have the smaller one but have only used it to make egg bites and yogurt. I've never actually cooked a meal in it. I would have never thought you could use it to cook fish. I guess I should get an Instapot cookbook and try to expand my horizons! By the way, is it Instapot or Instant Pot? I always say instapot, but I think it's actually Instant Pot.....oh well.

I think its both lol.. people call it both anyway :D all you need is youtube and google to show you what to do with whatever it is you want to cook. They make these special round pans that stack. I can use one for veggies and one for the protein. Some require foil, some dont. The trick is in the liquid. I've also made ribs, stew, soups and baby foods!

Pro tip of the day if you like egg salad: No peel egg salad

I just picked up a ring today that was "fixed" by Ivy and Rose and I COULD NOT be happier! They took something that I absolutely didn't want to look at and turned it into a piece that I can't stop staring at. And I am SO relieved because I paid too much for it (impulsiveness!) so when it went south I was kicking myself.

:appl:

I had a terrible scare with my sweet kitty Hobbes. Our pet sitter had to rush him to the emergency vet, and we had to turn around and come back home after 5 hours of driving in LA rush hour to get out of town. But GOOD NEWS is that my sweet baby is OKAY and spunky as ever. God bless 24/7 veterinarians and vet techs!!!!
