  1. Love your recipes I go to them first then decide what I want to cook. Love my IP . Thank you.

  2. Recently diagnosed with Pancreas problems and purchased a Ninja Foodi (to be delivered on Thursday) and so I am looking for healthy recipes. I have been to about 10 different sites and this is the first one that has exactly what I am looking for. Great recipes that I feel like I can actually make. I especially like the recipes that has a pic of all of the ingredients. I have never cooked (I am 60 years old) so this is a bit overwhelming for me. Your site has taken that anxiety away. I really appreciate the site !!!!


    1. Hi Jack! I am happy to hear that you have found my site! Don’t be shy to leave a comment or star review when you try any of my recipes. Happy cooking (you can do it)!

  3. In the taco soup recipe you recommended, if using ground beef, pour the fat in the trash or compost. This is a compost no no! No fats or animal products. It attracts vermin, and isn’t good for it otherwise.

    I appreciate your recipes. We just bought an IP.

    1. I meant city compost, the one they take away in the bin. Didn’t occur to me some do yard compost. I will specify that, thank you. I hope you enjoy my recipes and please let me know what you try.:)

  4. I don’t really care about the chicken meat that much but I’d like to make a lot of Rich broth from a frozen chicken. How do I adapt this recipe? I’m a total beginner!

  5. Extremely delicious beef stew recipe, Olena! Thank you for it and for putting together a bunch of healthy Instant Pot Recipes. I just got mine for Christmas and need ideas. This post covers all basics for health nuts like me lol.
