Recently I announced so big news, I AM THE WORST FOOD BLOGGER EVER!
Seriously though, I’ve been blogging 5 years, FIVE YEARS, and I still haven’t quite figured out how to put an Ad Network on here or navigate the world of SEO as well as I should.
I mean really, why am I just now posting my first Instant Pot recipe when it’s been trending for years!
But, then I remembered something VERY important about this little space I have on the world wide web, it’s entirely my own.
I get to decide (with your input of course!) if I’m making a cookie recipe in January or finally pulling out my Instant Pot to bring you the best Chicken Taco Soup ever!
Here’s the deal.
I’m going to promise you 2019 will be filled with fresh ideas that highlight the beauty of nutritious and delicious meals made in no time flat, like this Chicken Taco Soup in the Instant Pot!
Or, heck, you can whip up the infamous Sweet Potato Chili too if you’re jonsing for more cold weather fare!
Oh, and I also promise I’ll keep my tiny human alive, that’s a full time job in itself!
