    I don’t have an Instapot so can’t benefit from those recipes, though I saw lots of my friends seemed to have gotten one for Christmas so it definitely seems to be a huge trend and subsequent demand for recipes! I always like when you have your vegetarian side dishes as I’m always looking for fun twists and new combinations of flavors!

    YES on Instant Pot recipes and YES to vegetarian ones! I got an Instant Pot last summer and was so afraid to break it out until Christmas break. I made your Pho for my first recipe and was AMAZED (except I got the wrong kind of noodles, so I’m trying an asian market today). Then I made Southwestern Lentils AND Red beans and rice. AMAZING. Thank you!!

    I really wish I had an InstantPot on hand – maybe later this year. Lots of comfort food on your list, which makes sense – 2017 was a rather trying year for many people. That pumpkin risotto with goat cheese really caught my eye – what a gorgeous looking dish! I can almost feel how creamy it is with my mind’s tastebuds.
