Instant Pot Red Beans & Rice

This dish is such a winner that it made it into our monthly rotation (and also by R’s request). Using the quick-soak method, what seems like a meal you’d save for a Sunday, you can pull off any weeknight. Omit the ham & sausage and use vegetable broth to make it vegan! Don’t you just…

Instant Pot Potato Salad Remix

This is an Instant Pot conversion of a recipe I’ve been using my whole adult life. A 90s girl at heart, this is the remix of that recipe. The celery seed in this recipe gives great flavor, without the crunch that makes kids cringe! All of the flavor, none of the effort.

Instant Pot Massaman Curry (V)

Massaman Curry is a favorite when we head into town for some Thai food. I stumbled upon a slow cooker recipe for this dish, and just knew I could convert it to the IP and make it vegan… and it worked beautifully! Everything should be cut on the chunkier side to avoid a mushy result….

Porchetta with Broccoli Rabe Sandwiches (Instant Pot)

A Philly favorite! I used to get these every year at the Italian Festival in Wilmington, DE, but they are most famously known in Philly at Tony Luke’s. Also known locally as a “porkette with greens”. Enjoy!

  Her: I’ve been tweaking this method since I starting making carbonara, and I think I’ve got it just about perfect. (Pats own back) Carbonara is simple in its ingredients, but it’s one of the most challenging dishes I’ve made – next to any rice dish. (Shakes fist at rice) CARBONARA | (serves 4) 4…


Clap it out: Pie-ā-ya!   HER: This dish has a backstory. In our early explorations and as we became closer, a lot of our talks involved food. We knew our individual cores were fueled by cooking and culinary discovery. During one of those important conversations, we talked about paella, Spain, and an ill-fated paella pan….

Timpano: Big Night, Big Dreams

HIM: Love is a catalyst.   I’ve had in mind to make this dish for 19 years.  It has always been that dish that I would one day make when the time was right.  I needed the special occasion, the right time, the perfect recipe…  I put it off so many times that it became…
