Mom's Apricot Nectar Cake

My mom made this for Easter one year, and I actually liked it! I was a tough critic as a kid, but I've always loved this cake. Now I can make it myself as a dessert-loving adult, but I love it more when my mom makes it! I've never been much of a fan of desserts containing fruit, but this one just gets me! It's just fruit juice, essentially, so it's made to please your toughest fruit dessert critic.

In this dish, the Instant Pot® is used to create a dish reminiscent of a slowly braised stew in a traditional clay tagine. It's a sweet-and-savory, highly flavorful combo that will take you back to your Moroccan trip or inspire you to start planning for that Sahara camel-trek. Chicken is cooked until tender with onions, garlic, turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon. Apricots steep in the broth. Serve with rice or couscous and Greek yogurt.

Spicy Air Fryer Pork Chops with Apricot Glaze

A combination of chili powder and other herbs and spices make a spicy rub for pork chops. Brush with a spicy-sweet glaze in the last 2 minutes of cooking, and take the extra glaze to the table for even more goodness. We enjoyed these chops with simple sauteed zucchini and steamed white rice.
