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

If you’re looking for a dinner that’s quick to make and impressive to eat, look no further! Spend five minutes whipping up the marinade for this dish, set up some potatoes cooking in the crockpot (check out last week’s recipe for that one), and come home to about 15 minutes more work to heat up

I’ve been going through the Harry Potter book series lately, and, on several occasions, pasties are mentioned. I had no idea what a pasty was, so I looked it up one day, after hearing about pumpkin pasties for the second or third time. They’re hand pies, which I had heard of before, but which I had

The hubby and I have taken a liking to a local stir fry place over the course of the past year, but eating out a lot can get expensive pretty quickly. I got a stove-friendly wok from Nana, so I decided that now was as good a time as any to break it out and

One of my favorite drinks (next to rum and Coke or Jägermeister and Dr. Pepper) is hard lemonade. I’ve been drinking MIke’s since I was in college. I’d grab a bottle and take it outside with me whenever I had to work on my bike. Now that I’m older and I have more to do

Last winter, people got really excited about red wine hot chocolate. I thought it sounded kind of dumb, so I let it be. Well, here I am, months later, faced with a chocolate craving and a remaining third of a bottle of merlot. So I said, screw it, let’s try it. I’m going to come

This recipe is brought to you by Mother Necessity. Back in May, I was scrambling to put together a birthday dinner for my hubby after a busy day, and I realized partway through that I hadn’t made him a cake or a pastry or anything. Crap. So, I scrambled to toss something together, and after

This recipe makes slightly ironic use of another recipe of mine, Gourmet Vegan All-Purpose Seasoning. While tilapia obviously isn’t vegan, this seasoning makes for a great crust/rub on this otherwise bland fish. What’s even better is that this recipe works great in a cast iron skillet. Intimidated by your skillet? Don’t be! Just reference the guide

When you have a finnicky stomach like mine, it’s good to have multiple cures and fixes up your sleeve. I’ve got ginger chews, teas, mental exercises, you name it. Sometimes, though, you need to add something new to your repertoire. That’s where this turmeric millk comes in. It’s a sweet, spiced, hot milk drink that
