The weather is only just beginning to make me want this type of comfort food. What about you?

admit, I had to go out and buy an Instant Pot. Seems everybody had one but me and I was thinking, um what’s the fuss about. Now I know. Check this out.

Instant Pots

I found this so helpful at Amazon:

In an ideal world, you might enjoy a well-equipped kitchen collection, complete with slow cooker, pressure cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, rice cooker and more. In reality, how many of us really have the cabinet or counter space to store all these appliances? Enter the Instant Pot. This handy appliance offers models ranging from 6-in-1 to 10-in-1, and can tackle all kinds of culinary chores. “Instant Pot” is the name on everyone’s lips when it comes to multi cookers, and we can see why. Instant Pot plays the multi cooker game like no other, and has some top notch products on the market.

My Choice

Here’s what I got. It comes in 3 Qt, 6 Qt and 8 Qt. I got the 6 quart one. It really makes all of these goodies. Imagine that.

Gift yourself or someone you really love — good cook, bad cook, indifferent cook.  It will not end up in basement or attic. It does so much!

As Patsy mentioned I adore Richa Hingle’s (VeganRicha’s) food.

My favourite is Richa’s cauliflower tikka masala. To live for.
