Scottish Stovies

This recipe is delivered today in honor of the Scottish hubby’s birthday 🎂! This is one of David’s favorites (i.e. both to make and eat) and a total comfort meal. Stovies, aka Stovy Tatties and Stoved Potatoes, is a Scottish stew based on meat and potatoes and very similar to America’s Beef Stew. It’s usually…

Instant Pot Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork in the Instant Pot, oh my, what an idea! I was drawn to Pulled Pork for 3 reasons: 1. It seemed to be a perfect accompaniment for my Super Creamy Mac & Cheese and boy was it ever 😋! 2. I knew I had a busy week at work and pork always makes…

Instant Pot Vietnamese Beef Pho

Oh man, Vietnamese Pho is one of my go-to comfort foods with its layers of unaminess, richness and freshness. Just thinking about it makes me drool 😋 It is beginning to feel like fall in New England and it seemed appropriate to try to recreate the Pho I’ve experienced at Saigon & Tokyo in Dover,…

Pineapple Honey Glazed Ham

In my opinion, the key to a great Reuben is cheesy goodness and melt in your mouth beef brisket because no one…

Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

Since I have homemade chicken stock and we had more snow ❄️, it’s time for delicious chicken noodle soup. But this isn’t your standard cold and winter classic, this is kicked up with some great spice and cream 😋 I consider this a simple crock pot meal! Cut up some fresh vegetables. I’m using scallots…

Homemade Chicken Stock – Instant Pot

Creating your own chicken stock is easy peasy if you hold onto your chicken bones after roasting or freeze for later use, which is exactly what I did after my roast chicken. What makes it so easy, the Instant Pot! No need to slave over the stove for hours creating a stock when you have…

Weekly Plan – Week 4

The plan is in and it’s stock focused meals for the week since I’m creating Instant Pot Chicken Stock later today. Again, I focus on what I have on hand to avoid waste and draw inspiration from those items. After roasting chicken a few weeks ago, I froze the bones and some of chicken bits….
