Chicken Teriyaki (pressure cooker)

As a working mom (gosh, sometimes I still don’t feel like I’m mature enough to be able to say that, but other days I feel so old🙃) the pressure cooker is my best friend. Here’s another recipe to share based on one shared by Well Plated blog. You can use any pressure cooker here. I…

Spiced Chicken with Pear/Cherry Chutney

You would think that with everything basically closed during COVID-19 Stay-At Home orders, we would have more time to make dinner. That is NOT the case. Basically the kiddos are climbing the walls and take more of our energy than ever… so I am continually looking for recipes that don’t require a lot of babysitting…

Mole Chicken Chili

Crockpot Tomato Soup (seriously easy)

Chicken Tikka in the Pressure Cooker

While I was preparing tonight’s dinner I found myself using not one but TWO pressure cookers at the same time! Why does one need two pressure cookers? Well that’s the life of a KitchenGadgetJunkie. I’ve had my Fagor Rapid Express cooker for a while now and I use it pretty frequently. Then I learned of…
