  1. OOOOOOOOOOooo lots of nice ones. I was looking for a potato soup recipe just the other day. This came just in time- thank you!

    1. I’m so glad!

  2. I was excited as I am looking for more instant pot recipes that are kid-friendly, however I was disapointed that most of the recipes I clicked on included canned soup or canned biscuits. Although the title did not say that they were whole foods recipes so it wasn’t misleadiing.

    1. Actually that’s a fantastic point! I think I’ll get ready for another roundup of IP whole food family friendly meals. 🙂

  3. Been scouring the web for what I would call “common” recipes for Instant Pot! Your recipe guide is the closest thing to it, and I appreciate the time you’ve put into offering this!

    Bless you!

    1. You’re very welcome!
