Instant Pot® Beef and Mushroom Stew

This hearty stew is cooked in the Instant Pot®. It relies on potatoes and aromatics breaking down during the cook to form a rich gravy for tender meat and delightful mushrooms. If you want to add a thickener, use the optional directions for cornstarch. We liked it over wide egg noodles, but it would also work on top of rice or mashed potatoes. My guys liked it, so I guess it is a man-pleaser!

Chicken, Mushroom, and Rice Soup

They say chicken soup is good for the soul, but when you factor in the addition of mushrooms, onions, and garlic, and the always comforting effects of rice, this soup is good for a lot more things than just your soul--like your wallet, for example! Serve topped with sour cream, thyme leaves, and diced red onion.

Vietnamese Lemongrass Meatballs

We enjoy these tasty meatballs served over a bowl of rice or wrapped in lettuce cups. They're balanced with flavors of spicy, salty, tangy, and sweet, and also make wonderful appetizers. Leftover meatballs may be stored in the freezer in a resealable plastic bag.

Savory, smoky, easy-to-make chili. Sometimes I add a can of corn, too. Maybe have some sweet corn bread muffins with honey on the side. You could use black beans, pinto beans, pink beans, or small red beans in place of the kidney beans.

Cannoli Cheesecake

Cannoli are Italian pastries consisting of tube-shaped shells of fried pastry dough, filled with a sweet, creamy filling usually containing ricotta--a staple of Sicilian cuisine. This is a cheesecake inspired by the flavors of a traditional cannoli. Serve with a big glass of cold milk! This would last several days, covered, in the refrigerator.

This is a great recipe when you don't want to wait for the dough to rise. You just mix it and allow it to rest for 5 minutes and then it's ready to go!! It yields a soft, chewy crust. For a real treat, I recommend you use bread flour and bake it on a pizza stone, but all-purpose flour works well too. Enjoy!

This is an authentic recipe for mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time! Tonic water can be substituted instead of the soda water but the taste is different and somewhat bitter.
