    TwoSleevers is a site well worth bookmarking.

    I haven't made it yet, but I whipped up an Indianesque dish of curried chicken thighs, onion, shallots, garlic, and basmati rice (cooked with cardamom) in my Instant Pot. I don't normally go on about appliances, but I'm mad about mine, and use it at least five times a week. I love that there's no babysitting.

    For those who have an Instant Pot or similar, here's one of many good sites with tasty-sounding recipes: https://www.pressurecookrecipes.com/...t-pot-recipes/

    Well, the no babysitting is what I oove about rice cookers, perfect rice every time and no boiling over and messy stove to clean up.

    The IP cooks rice well enough for me--perhaps not up to the standards of a Zojirushi. The no-fuss aspect sold me. I understand you can make perfect non-stir risotto, but I can't vouch for that.

    We recently succumbed to the Instant Pot craze, it took a while because several of our garage shelves are filled with bread makers, George Foreman grills and similar appliances. I'm convinced that the IP is the real deal, we use ours several times a week and I expect to use it more frequently now that I'm retired.
    Jane, I've bookmarked your sites. Thanks!

    Another vote for Hip Pressure Cooking.

    I made this Monday evening. The chicken came out very moist and tasty. You could change it around with lots of different flavorings: https://healinggourmet.com/healthy-r...ooker-chicken/

    #13: Tonight I made roasted potatoes with rosemary, salmon with a teriyaki sauce from Trader Joe's (yes, a shortcut) and steamed asparagus.

    Obviously, nothing too complicated, but it still felt like a milestone for me because it feels like I have in my repertoire a quick, easy dinner I can make for guests which I also really like.

    Another bonus: during the school year, I had really slipped into giving my daughter various Trader Joe's prepared meals for dinner because I was so tired and didn't feel like I had the energy to deal with serving her something she wasn't used to and might complain about. But over the last couple of weeks, I've told her while I will try to cook meals I think she will enjoy, I'm not letting her "order" dinner anymore. From now on, what's served is what's served, and I only ask her to try new things. If she doesn't like something, she doesn't have to eat it.

    Well, she tasted everything on her plate tonight and really liked the roasted potatoes, which was a nice surprise. It wasn't a surprise that she wasn't crazy about the salmon or the asparagus, but there was no big drama about it, and she still got a (small) dessert. She had also had hummus and chips as an appetizer, so I didn't feel like it was too much of a loss nutrition-wise.

    I feel like I'm gaining confidence in my cooking, which I think is the whole point of this little project for me. I think it' just a matter of doing it over and over.
