I’ve been meaning to make some kind of soup in my pressure cooker. I was initially going to make some kind of corn chowder, but somehow, I ended up here instead. Corn chowder will almost certainly still happen, as it is delicious and I haven’t had it in forever. Today, though, we have broccoli soup

I have a bottle of marsala hanging around in my kitchen from when I made wine cakes for Christmas. I know it’s a great sherry substitute when cooking, but despite that, I practically never use it. I always reach for my vermouth instead (which I put in practically everything). I’m going to be making a

If you’re in the mood for something sweet, savory, and spicy, you’re going to love this set-it-and-forget-it jambalaya. The prep involves a lot of chopping and dicing, but if you put on a little music, it goes by in no time. My recommendation? The band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. It really sets the tone (and

Crock pot meals are some of my favorites because I can throw stuff in the pot in the morning, turn it on, and have dinner ready in the evening whenever I need it. Meals like that are especially nice when either hubby has long meetings that take him until after or I have to leave

After raving about hers for months, my mom surprised me with an Instant Pot for my birthday! Now, in addition to slow cooker meals and regular-cooker meals, you can expect to see some pressure cooker meals on Apartment Eats! My first adventure was a delicious dinner that took a different take on teriyaki. You can make

I had a giant pork loin hanging out in my freezer and I knew it had been there for a while but I wasn’t sure just how long “a while” had been. While looking for recipe ideas for braising, roasting, marinating, and countless other things I wasn’t super interested in, I remembered that pulled pork

Shepherd’s pie is another meal that tends to resurface around St. Patrick’s Day, but the peasant dish isn’t truly Irish. Many countries have their own versions of this meal, which was traditionally made out of the scraps of a Sunday feast. A “true” shepherd’s┬ápie uses a mix of lamb and vegetables as a base with

While I’m a little late for St. Paddy’s Day 2019, you can either save this recipe for next year or enjoy discounted corned beef and make it today! I hope you had a happy Get Drunk While Wearing Green Day, and I hope you come back to this recipe for years to come. I know

I adapted this recipe from one of my mom’s favorite Instant Pot recipes, and it turned out pretty well for my first conversion. The beef was so tender and the sauce was one of the best I’ve ever made. It uses a LOT of garlic, but don’t let that dissuade you. The sauce doesn’t just
