Well, hello Summer! Is it hot where you are? I’m in Texas. In June. Need I say more?
This is about the time us Southerners wish we didn’t have to cook. Who wants to heat up the house more? But salads, salads, and more salads get old, no matter how healthy I like to eat. We grill most weekends, but that doesn’t work for weeknights.
Have you tried the Instant Pot pressure cooker? My mother-in-law gave me one for Christmas a few years ago, and I am hooked. I really never thought anything would replace my crockpot, but the IP has won my heart.

- Instant Pot meals are perfect when you don’t want to use the oven (and thus heat your entire house) while cooking dinner during the hottest parts of the summer.
- An IP can be used to batch cook ingredients for easy and healthy quick meals during busy summer days. It makes the easiest-to-peel hard-boiled eggs. Baked potatoes take 20 minutes. Rice is a breeze, too.
- The IP makes one-pot campground meals a breeze – no cooking over an open fire pit required!
