It's so quiet here, nothing to do but cook

With no grand babies running around playing, it sure is quiet here at home.  We haven't done much, so I think I will tell you about my new kitchen toy I got for Christmas.  I got an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.  I love it.  It's not just a pressure cooker, it is also a rice cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, and sauté pan.

This thing is wonderful!  All you need is minutes and dinner is done.  I have cooked a pork loin, whole chicken, chicken wings, roast and potatoes , baked potatoes, mashed potatoes and ham.  All were great.  The chicken wings were even frozen and all it took was 15 min. and they were so juicy and tender.  I joined the facebook page for Instant Pot and the posts on there have taught me a lot about what I can do with this pot.  There are some wonderful recipes on here too.  For someone that had just about quit cooking, I have really had fun with this thing.  I even made chili in it.  Everyone posts that the best mac n cheese is made in this pot.  I haven't tried it yet.  You can even make home made yogurt.  That sounds like too much work for me.  Tomorrow I am making unstuffed cabbage rolls in the pot. Yum
I can't  believe all the things people are cooking in this pot.
Everything from boiled eggs.  (They say the shells just fall off)


I took these pictures off the FB page.  Even if you don't have or want a pressure cooker; but you like to cook, there are some wonderful recipes on this page.
Well now I guess you see how boring it is around here right now.  All I have to talk about is cooking. LOL  At least I am having fun.
