Whenever a shiny new promise of kitchen minimalism is dangled in front of me, I’m tempted to take the bait.

Harissa Butternut Squash Soup

One of my favourite things about winter is that it gives you the excuse to make and eat hearty soups.

Now I understand that you are skeptical. Red wine, and beef? Is this a joke? Well if it is… then it’s a joke with a purpose.

The result, however, is an elixir of flavor to savor and share with family and friends. And why not share it? We have shared the recipes to our other meals so why not this one?

Instant Pot: Our Honest Review

Our Final Rating: ★★★★☆

After using the Instant Pot for many year, I look back and give it an honest review. Overall, it really does save me time. It helps me with meal prep.
