GIVEAWAY HAS CONCLUDED. CONGRATS TO OUR WINNER!
I am so excited to be hosting my very first GIVEAWAY on Instantly Delicious. The Instant Pot® company has agreed to send one of my readers their very ownInstant Pot® IP-Duo 60 pressure cooker. This is the very same pressure cooker that I use almost every day and that has brought ease and simplicity to my cooking. I am so excited that one of you will get to enjoy the same benefits.
Thanksgiving in the United States is next week. Typically, my family all comes together at my parents house and we divide and conquer, doing all of the cooking together. This year, my mom requested that the kids take on the entire meal, and she and my dad take a break and enjoy the day as "guests." We
"kids" are all adults, so while the thought of doing the entire Thanksgiving dinner ourselves might seem daunting, we have been doing it for years.
My sister asked if I could bring my Instant Pot®. Because it is light and portable, it is a great way to increase our cooking space. We can use it as an additional way to prep, cook, and also to keep food warm on Thanksgiving day. I am so excited about this and am already planning on using it to prep the sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and to flash steam the green beans that we will use in a recipe.
I have a question for you:
If you win this Instant Pot® (or if you already use one), how will you use it to make the holidays a little easier for you?
Winner to be randomly selected . Must be 18 years old and a resident of the United States.
My mushroom risotto recipe is by far my most pinned recipe. It is easy and delicious. While not necessarily a technically perfect risotto, it is pretty darn close and makes for a pretty impressive dish to serve to dinner guests. As I was putting my garden to sleep this weekend, I noticed that my sage is still looking quite good. We have had a mild autumn, and I don't believe anything has been touched by frost. I decided to cut off a few sprigs and use it in this Instant Pot® Pumpkin Risotto. It offers a hint of sage, which complements the pumpkin and nutmeg beautifully. This fall inspired risotto works well as an entrée or side. It also makes for a delicious recipe for your Thanksgiving menu.
I don't know if you heard, but the Chicago Cubs just won the World Series!!!!! We are pretty big fans over here, and our week has been filled with soaking in every celebratory moment - including my kids getting to meet the amazingly generous and kind MVP, Ben Zobrist. There were many post-midnight bedtimes for everyone in the last week, and TIRED does not begin to describe the exhaustion level in our house. Today I wanted a day with no obligations. We all headed to bed early last night and slept in late today. I thought about a quick PB&J lunch, but my kids have been bingeing on Halloween candy for the last week, and need to get reacquainted with vegetables. I decided to make a vegetarian friendly "no-chicken" noodle soup. It was just what we all needed. Warm, comforting, and quick to make in the Instant Pot®. The perfect way to ease into a relaxing and soothing weekend.
