Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki Bowls

admin / February 2, 2019

I have made this a couple times, my son loves it. We usually never have leftovers and it’s so easy to make. He helps me cut up the veggies. He needs the practice, since he wants to go to culinary school. If you haven’t gotten yourself an Instant Pot, you should. It’s a lifesaver. I originally found this recipe from: Tastes Better From Scratch.

Crock Pot Smothered Pork Chops

admin / November 8, 2017

Since school sports are starting, crockpot meals are a life saver. This recipe has a really good taste, but I will never use bone-in pork chops again.
