Healthy Black Bean and Lentil Chili
Cozy up to the fire on a cold rainy day with a cup of this delicious Instant Pot Lentil and Bean Chili! Simple, easy to make, yet filling. I love to serve it with my homemade focaccia bread. Because lentil chili is low in calories and points, you can serve it with a few pieces of luscious bread and a salad on the side and still stay within your calorie/point range. Freeze it into small portions for a quick, healthy meal later.
Great to make for a party! Instant Pot Chili appeals ...

Instant Pot Mexican Beef and Bacon Soup
This Instant Pot Mexican Beef and Bacon Soup is also called, "Carne en su Jugo," - it literally means "meat cooked in it's own juice." It's a flavorful beef broth with bits of beef, bacon and pinto beans -almost like a Mexican Beef Stew of sorts. It's usually served with beans on the side and a variety of toppings.

Healthy Instant Pot Chicken Soup with Homemade Noodles
Why Homemade Noodles?
I love to put homemade noodles in chicken noodle soup. They remind me of my childhood. My grandmother made the best homemade egg noodles. As a young girl, I remember sitting on the kitchen stool in her tiny kitchen with avocado green appliances watching my Granny roll out the dough, cut the noodles with her big knife (the one pictured below), then carefully shake them out. They were cooked in the broth she had made from baking a roast ...

Homemade Jalapeño Bacon Cheddar Mini Scones
Some of you may not know that I owned a tea room and tea company (Afternoon to Remember) for 14 years. During that time I made a million scones, all different varieties. You can find the recipes in my various tea room cookbooks and I even have an e Book- The Scone Recipe Collection (digital, pdf).
