Creamy Chicken Puffs

Oh my goodness this recipe is so delicious! If you like chicken pot pie, you will love creamy chicken puffs. In my opinion, they are way better than chicken pot pie. They are so easy to make but they look like you spent hours preparing this meal.

A few years ago we had some new friends come over for dinner. As you’ve probably already guessed, I made this recipe. The ladies were quite impressed and went on an on about how elegant and delicious this meal truly was. My darling husband, a man indeed, said, “Oh no, it didn’t take my wife no time at all to make these, it’s so easy.” I have to laugh because he was right. So whether you want to make an impressive meal or just spoil your family, this is a great recipe.

This recipe would be great for a ladies tea or a special dinner. You can serve cranberry sauce, green beans, or a side salad.

Watch my video below for step by step instructions and you will find the recipe under the video in the description box. I look forward to hearing from you. Please leave me comments down below. Thanks and happy cooking!

Super Easy Chicken and Rice Dish with Kielbasa Sausage (Chicken Bog)

When I was a little girl we moved to South Carolina. We lived there for a little over three years. While living there my mother learned a new recipe from some of the ladies at church. They called it “chicken bog.” All I could remember about it was that it had rice, chicken, and black pepper and tasted great.  So I called my mom to see if she still remembered how to cook it. Fortunately she did. So I decided to give it a go in the instant pot.

Back when my mom and the church ladies would cook chicken bog they cooked it in a huge pot on the stove. They would boil the whole chicken and de-bone it. Since I am all about quick and easy, I chose to use boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Watch my video to see step by step instructions on how to make this delicious dish in the instant pot. It was so yummy that my husband had three helpings. Okay, I have to admit I went back for seconds. If you want to help me out, please let the ad(s) play before or after the video. Thanks so much for your love and support!

Instant Pot Pork Roast & Sauerkraut (quick & easy)

I love pork roast and sauerkraut. However, I didn’t grow up eating it. In fact, as a child if my mom would have cooked this I probably would have said, “Yuck, can I go get a hamburger?”

My husband’s grandparents on his mom’s side were German. After we got married they very quickly became Grandma and Grandpa Dohrmann to me. They were the grandparents I had always dreamed of having. Grandma shared some of her recipes with me and pork roast and sauerkraut is one of them. Of course she didn’t have an instant pot back then.

Below is a video of me cooking pork roast and sauerkraut in my instant pot. I give step by step instructions and the recipe is below the video. Please feel free to watch and leave me comments. I would love to connect with you.

Recipe:
3 to 4 lb pork roast (at room temp)
salt
pepper
garlic powder
2 lb bag of sauerkraut
1 cup of water

Rinse roast and pat dry. Sprinkle seasonings over roast. Make sure to season all sides of roast.
Place 1 1/2 to 2 tbsp of grape seed oil in instant pot.
Place roast in instant pot when it reads HOT.
Saute for 2 to 3 minutes on all sides of roast.
After sauteing, you may want to clean your pan before pressure cooking the roast.
Turn instant pot off and turn it back on the pressure cook high or manual high for 20 minutes per pound of meat. I cooked my 3 1/2 lbs. roast for 1 hour 15 minutes.
Do a self release for at least 20 minutes.
Mashed potatoes make a great side dish.
Enjoy!

Cold Process Vs. Hot Process Soaping

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between cold process and hot process soaping? Making cold process soap is quicker and easier, but it has to cure for about 6 weeks. Curing gives the soap time for the water to evaporate in the soap, making it a harder bar that will last longer in use.

The hot process soap takes longer to make the day you make it, but it can be used right away. I recommend you allow it to cure for a couple of weeks.

I would love for you to watch my video below and see exactly how we made both types of soap. Soaping is fun and we sure had fun making this video.

Are you a soaper? If so, what is your favorite type of soap to make? I would love to connect with you. Please leave comments and questions down below. Thanks!

If you would like this soap recipe, it’s under “show more” below the actual YouTube video. Thanks for watching!

The Proof is In the Wash

I’ve been making my own laundry detergent for a few years now. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love it and how much money I’ve saved. It literally costs me pennies per load. I make a 5 gallon bucket about every 8 to 9 months. I have another blog with my recipe and video showing step by step instructions on how to make this amazing laundry soap. Feel free to check it out.

One of my followers asked if I could make a video showing how well my soap works. I thought about it for a while and finally decided on the best way to do it. If you click on the video down below you will see a couple of stained kitchen towels before the wash and how clean they are after. I will tell you that I used some Shout stain remover on the towel with the black grease, but I think you would have to do that on that type of stain no matter what kind of laundry soap you are using.

My laundry continues to get really clean and my whites stay white. The proof is in the wash! Do you make your own laundry soap?

Carrot Cake in the Instant Pot (Gluten Free)

Recently one of my followers asked me to make a carrot cake in the instant pot. I thought to myself, hmmm, why not make it gluten free? So that is exactly what I did. I discovered a brand of gluten free flour that I love! It’s called King Arthur Flour. If you haven’t found that perfect gluten free flour yet, you might want to give this one a try. However, if you don’t have to worry about being gluten free, you can make this recipe with all purpose flour.

I was very pleased with my carrot cake. It came out beautifully and tasted amazing. It was super moist. The cake was dense and the texture a little different from my oven baked cake, but the texture didn’t bother me. One of my friends tasted the cake and said she didn’t care for the texture, but it didn’t stop her from eating the whole piece of cake. She said it tasted delicious.

Watch the video to see step by step instructions on how I made the cake. If you want to help a girl out, please let the ad play at the beginning and or end of the video. Thanks so much. I would be delighted to have you subscribe to my YouTube channel as well.

Do you have an instant pot? If so, what is your favorite thing to cook in it? If you have any suggestions on something you would like to see me cook please leave it in the comments down below. If it is something I feel that I can make I will sure give it a try.  Have a great day my friend. Enjoy the video!

 

Carrot Cake Recipe:

2 cups of gluten free flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

2 cups of sugar

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1 cup of extra virgin olive oil

4 eggs (bring them to room temperature)

3 cups of carrots shredded

Mix all dry ingredients together, then add grated carrots, oil, and eggs one at the time and mix well. Bake in double steam pans in your instant pot for 45 minutes. Allow it to self release. (Approximately 30 minutes.) Test with tooth pick. If it comes out clean, it’s done. Allow cake to cool before icing.

Frosting:
1 box of cream cheese (8 oz size)
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
1/2 stick of butter
2 tablespoons of vanilla
1 pound bag of powdered sugar
1 bag of coconut (optional)

Have cold ingredients at room temperature. Cream sugar and butter. Add cream cheese and vanilla. Now stir in coconut and pecans.

Enjoy!

Scrumptious Stuffed Turkey Meatballs

The other day I made a batch of stuffed turkey meatballs. They are easy to make and taste so yummy! I love making food that I can eat some right away and then freeze some for a later time. Stuffed turkey meatballs definitely are one of those foods. When you are hungry for spaghetti and meatballs, just pull out however many meatballs you need. Allow them a little while to thaw and then heat them up with your favorite marinara sauce. Cook some spaghetti noodles and voila, you are ready to eat. These meatballs make great meatball sandwiches too.

You can make these meatballs in the instant pot, but this is one of the few times I find it easier just to use my oven.

The video below shows step by step instructions on how to prepare the turkey meatball  recipe. Have you made turkey meatballs? If so, what do like to put in yours? Leave me comments down below. I would love to connect with you.

 

Recipe:

1 lb of ground turkey
1/2 cup of diced onions
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup of flat leaf parsley (before chopped)
6 oz. baby bella mushrooms
1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
1/3 tsp of pink Himalayan salt
1/3 tsp of black pepper
3/4 tsp of Italian seasoning
3/4 tsp of Thyme
1 egg
1/2 cup of Italian bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 400 F.
Mix all the ingredients together.
Make round meatballs whatever size you prefer. (I made 20 meatballs with this recipe)
Put meatballs on a parchment lined cookie tray.
Place in pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven.
Lightly coat the top of the meatballs with olive oil.
Turn oven on broil.
Place meatballs back in the oven for 1 minute. (watch closely)
Remove meatballs.
You can use them for spaghetti and meatballs or for meatball sandwiches.
Enjoy!

Orange Chicken in the Instant Pot

Recently I had the privilege of spending two weeks with one of my dearest friends in Arizona. We had such a wonderful time together. I had fun cooking in her beautiful kitchen. One of the things I cooked was, you guessed it, orange chicken. That’s where the video below was recorded.

Wow, talk about a delicious meal that you can make right in your instant pot, orange chicken is it! This is a gluten free but flavorful recipe that is sure to delight your taste buds.

I will warn you this recipe has a bit of a kick to it. If you aren’t crazy about spicy hot food, then you will definitely want to cut back on the amount of red cayenne pepper you add. I put one teaspoon of cayenne pepper in mine but you might want to start with 1/3 or 1/2 teaspoon.

The video below gives step by step instructions for making this delicious recipe. By the way, when I came home from Arizona I made this recipe for my husband and I added fresh orange wedges and stir fry veggies. You can add those after you add your chicken back into the sauce and saute for 5 or 6 minutes.

What is your favorite recipe to cook in your instant pot? I would love to connect with you. Please leave me a comment down below. Have a blessed day my friend and happy cooking!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orange Chicken Recipe:

5 to 6 fillet boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2/3 cup coconut aminos
2/3 cup honey
4 tbsp of tomato paste
4 tbsp of orange juice
4 tsp of minced garlic
2 tbsp of sesame oil
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp of ground Cayenne red pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
Sesame Seeds (optional)

Prepare chicken breasts (remove fat)
Place in the instant pot
Place all the ingredients except for sesame seeds in a bowl and whisk until sauce is evenly combined.
Pour over chicken. (I made sure all the chicken was coated with sauce.)
Turn instant pot on manual or pressure cook high for 8 to 10 minutes. If your chicken is completely thawed, cook for 8 minutes on high with a five minute self release and then do a quick release.
If chicken is partially frozen, cook for 10 minutes.
Frozen chicken breasts cook for 12 minutes and then do a 5 minute self release and then follow with quick release. (Make sure frozen chicken breasts are separated before cooking.)
Remove chicken from instant pot.
Turn off instant pot and then turn on Saute mode.
Add slurry to your pot and whisk until sauce thickens.
Add chicken back to pot and allow it to saute for 3 or 4 minutes.

Serve over brown rice or cauliflower rice. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top of chicken and add chopped green onions. Broccoli is a nice side dish.

*If you like you can add little chunks of oranges and stir fry veggies after you put the chicken back in the instant pot and allow it to saute for 5 to 6 minutes in the sauce.
Enjoy!

Instant Pot Egg Bites

Want a quick and easy protein breakfast or snack? The other day I made egg bites in my instant pot. It was super easy. You can make them in 4 oz. mason jars or use egg bites silicone molds. The best part is, you can make several ahead and put them in your refrigerator. When you are ready for an egg bite, pop it in your microwave for 25 to 30 seconds and voila! It’s ready to eat. Caution, it will be quite hot when you first take it out of the microwave.

You can be creative when making egg bites. Add whatever ingredients sound good to you or whatever you happen to have in your refrigerator at the time. Tomatoes, green onions, avocado or diced onions are a few suggestions. I used baby bella mushrooms, cheese, and baby spinach in mine.

Watch the video below for step by step instructions on how to make these delicious little protein filled egg bites.

 

Recipe:

six to seven extra large eggs (about one egg per container)
4 oz baby bella mushrooms
3 to 4 tbsp of shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese)
salt & pepper to taste

Put one cup of hot water into your instant pot and turn it on steam for 10 minutes.
Spray jars with olive oil cooking spray.
Pour egg mixture into your jars (fill about 3/4 full)
Close jars. (Not to tight)
Place jars on top of trivet or egg stand in the instant pot.
Place lid on and make sure your sealing valve is set to sealed.
Allow pot to come to pressure and steam for 10 minutes.
Then allow it to do a 10 minute self release.
Do a quick release after the self release.
Place hot jars on a cooling rack.
Carefully remove lids right away.
Allow egg bites to cool a little.
Run butter knife around the inside of the jar to loosen it.
Enjoy!
