The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Chocolate Chip Cookies are the ULTIMATE, tried and tested, best of the best, go-to cookie recipe. These cookies are a staple, and are sure to make you the most popular mom on the block!

There are a couple very important things you need to know about me to understand where this chocolate chip cookie recipe (and its well-deserved title of “the ultimate”) came from:

Instant Pot Meatloaf with Potatoes, and Carrots

This one-pot meatloaf with potatoes & carrots in the Instant Pot is so simple!

The Instant Pot strikes again! The more I use this thing, the more I love it. It’s very quickly becoming a staple in my weekly menu planning.

One thing I’m trying to get the hang of is the “pot-in-pot” method, where you cook two different things at the same time by putting one item in the bottom of the main pot, and then a second item on a trivet, in a smaller pot (or a makeshift aluminum foil “bowl”) above it.

Fewer dishes + faster cook time = 🎉🍾🙌 Continue Reading
