4 Ingredient Pressure Cooker Meals

Today I have several 4 ingredient pressure cooker meals that are easy to make, any day of the week. I know how busy families are today and the easier we can make meals to prepare at home, the healthier we will be. I use my pressure cooker to make quinoa or rice on Sunday or Monday that will last Mark and I a few days. All we have to do is heat up the rice or quinoa to serve with some of the main meals listed below. I think most of these ingredients we all have in our pantry or refrigerator. If you buy your pork, chicken breasts, chicken tenderloins or beef on sale and freeze it, you are one step ahead of the game. I’m sure I have mentioned to you before I do not eat meat, but Mark does, so I shop the clearance area at some of the local grocery stores.  I look for the meat that’s priced very low and freeze it.

How To Make Homemade Corn Tortillas

I have got to show you how to make homemade corn tortillas today! I have a friend, Melissa Richardson AKA, “The Bread Geek,” who shared her recipe with me several years ago.

Three Easy Cakes To Make From Scratch

Can you use three easy cakes to make from scratch? I know summer is coming and we are starting to hear about family reunions. I love taking cakes to family reunions. I can still remember a very yummy cake that Mark’s aunt brought to the Loosli family reunion every year. I swear we all fought to get in line to get a piece of her cake. It was a white sheet cake, topped with real whipping cream and topped with homegrown elderberries or loganberries in a rich gooey sauce. Oh my goodness, I can almost taste it, right now!

The Best Marinated Carrot Salad Recipe In The World

This is the best marinated carrot salad recipe in the world! Oh, my gosh, Mark and I were invited for dinner the other night to some friends house and Mark mentioned to them that I am trying to stay clear of meat and dairy products. First of all, I try not to tell anyone about the healthy way of life I am working on. So this darling couple had every vegetable you can imagine on beautiful dishes to munch on and chitty chat around the table, oh how I loved this! They fixed the best salmon on the barbecue for the three of them and I was loving the rice, salads and all the fresh vegetables. Well, I asked if I could share this marinated carrot salad recipe on my blog. She quickly gave me the recipe and then I passed it on to my daughters because I knew this was one they would all love!
