So, I’m a carbaholic. Despite many attempts to cut out carbs I just cant’t seem to do it. I mean what’s more comforting than a deliciously butter baked potato? A baked potato that’s done in 20 minutes instead of an hour. These Instant Pot Baked Potatoes are great for everything from an indulgent chili baked potato to a healthy garden stuffed baked potato.
Next on the this leftover makeover streak is yummy Thanksgiving combo that’s hand held. Hubby was drooling over the idea of a Thanksgiving Empanada and after one bite I understood why. Continue reading “Thanksgiving Empanadas”

Chicken Pozole, is my go to healthy chicken soup dish. It’s a traditional Mexican dish made with hominy. Since we’re celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month I thought Chicken Pozole would be a fitting end. Continue reading “Chicken Pozole”
There’s a part of me (my stomach) that was extremely excited about our trip to California. From watching food shows Cali seemed to be the epi center of Mexican food, outside of Mexico. And one dish that was on the top of my list to have out in Cali were carnitas. This Crispy Instant Pot Pork Carnitas recipe was inspired by our trip to Cali.

I love a soul warming chicken and rice dish (probably because I’m a carbaholic). And from a very young age, I loved Arroz con Pollo. Anytime I make it, it reminds me of my childhood. It’s like nothing but happiness on a plate. A nice moist chicken can be difficult but this Instant Pot Arroz con Pollo (Chicken with Rice) is not.
So, I am absolutely in love with breakfast burritos. Sometimes, if I have to think about breakfast it just doesn’t happen. So having a breakfast that’s easy to make takes the stress out of the morning (well at least that part of the morning). Best part… this recipe can be made ahead of time and thrown in the freezer. These breakfast burritos are so delicious, it actually makes me want to eat breakfast. Even on my groggiest days. Continue reading “Breakfast Burritos”
I’ve always had an affinity for Cuban food. I guess that’s what happens when you live on the lower East side of New York. My love for Cuban food has only increased when I became friendly with Manny, the owner of the restaurant Mi Gente. I typically make this dish in the slow cooker but flank steak just calls for the pressure cooker. Instant Pot Ropa Vieja is on the menu. Continue reading “Instant Pot Ropa Vieja”
If you haven’t noticed (I hope you have) I’m all over Summer dishes. Food that makes you feel good is so important. Then add dishes that are easy, filling and full of flavor and that’s even better. This Corn and Jalapeño salad is exactly that. With a little bit of spice. Continue reading “Corn and Jalapeño Salad”
