Top 10 Best Instant Pot Recipes

These are the 10 BEST Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker recipes on the internet! Breakfast, dinners & desserts, all in your Instant Pot. Great starter recipes too, if you're a newbie :)

But that powder packet of cheese wins, hands down, every time.

So I’ve never had the motivation to homemake my own. If my favorite restaurant can’t do it better, why should I think *I* can? Continue Reading
