There has never been another kitchen appliance that I love more than my Instant Pot! I get use out of it several times a week. I regularly make bone broth and other main-dish items, and I love using it to make coconut yogurt. Since I know I am not alone in my love affair with the Instant Pot, I rounded-up all sorts of goodies for you in this post!


We have a family of 4 and I use the 6 Qt 7-in-1 and it is perfect for us. Be careful on Amazon, when you search Instant pot, lots of generic ones will show up too. Here is the one we use – and the price has gone down!

Annette has been including a FREE Instant Pot Meal Plan in our FREE Monthly Meal Plans! How awesome is that? Here are the two she included the extra Instant Pot meal plans in (it is a new feature!)


Our friends over at Kitchen Stewardship have a great post that includes 10 Basic Instant Pot Techniques that we thought you would love too, such as applesauce, hard boiled eggs, and the most perfect rice (I can attest to this – my husband is Filipino and a rice snob!) You can read her tips here.

Annette has also been doing crazy-awesome round-ups with delicious Instant Pot recipes. Check them out:
