I have been making baked apples in mine. I love those and it's so much healthier making your own for sure.

I'm still learning on it. Made some beef and noodles - need to adjust the recipe - soup in the recipe made it too salty.

I haven't been using my instant pot. My DH did make us a batch of chicken vegetable soup but he did it on the stove top.

Mac & Cheese sounds delicious, but that's one of the foods that I wouldn't be able to stop at one portion.

Hubby made Mac & Cheese in the instant pot last night. It was good. Jack had 2 plates full!

I really want to try a cheesecake but just haven't yet. Everyone says they are yummy.

Oh that sounds wonderful. I can't wait for you to get your cookbook. When you do and if you like cheesecakes you have to make one they are so yummy!

I ended up making some garlic chicken - it was delish! I'm planning on trying some hamburger stroganoff this next week. Still waiting for my cookbook to arrive.

Dee that sounds yummy.My hubby hates chicken. He will eat it but he hates it. So I don't get to eat it much unless we go out to dinner.

I'm making a broccoli and rice casserole in my instant pot tonight. I'll add chicken on the top for my DH, but remove it for myself.

Enjoy your new Instant Pot.

My pot is being delivered tomorrow night. Will have to bust it out this weekend and give it a try.

What should be my first dish?

I signed up for emails from 365 Days of Slow & Pressure Cooking
www.365daysofcrockpot.com/

She sends one email each day and includes recipes. I've liked the recipes that I've tried and her directions are easy to follow.

Look forward to hearing what everyone cooks in their instant pot. emoticon

You will love love love her cookbook. She has turned all kinds of recipes into instant pot recipes.

Kolh's has the egg racks and you can get them with 30% coupons. Great deal they aren't too expensive.

I need to get the egg rack for my cooker. That is the next purchase. I have a ceramic pot and a spring form pan that will come with my cooker.

Kim I signed up to get on her facebook page and ordered the cookbook. Thanks for the suggestions! After I get my cooker, I'll post recipes that I use in it and how it turned out.

An instant pot makes the easiest to peel hard boiled eggs.

I have a rack that holds six eggs. Add 1 cup water. Then use the 5-5-5 method.
5 minute cook
5 minute natural release
5 minute put eggs in cold water

I don’t use my instant pot very often either. Either need to start using it or get rid of it as I don’t have much kitchen space.

OK – this is a purely selfish thread. I finally broke down and ordered a Pampered Chef’s Quick Cooker – their version of the Instant Pot. Worth the extra $ for some of the safety features it offers. However, I’ve never used a pressure cooker and am a compete novice with using either the quick Cooker or an Instant Pot. I bought a couple of cookbooks and will probably get my cooker in a week or so. I’m open to any advice anyone can give me about using one of these. Favorite recipes, tips for cooking times, cleaning tips, etc. Thanks to anyone willing to share.
