Fall cooking and Family Dinners…these are two of my favorite things. Short ribs are the ultimate comfort food, but they take a LONG time to cook. Cooking them in the traditional way can take up to 4 hours and I don’t often have that kind of time. Once again, the Instant Pot to the rescue! My Instant Pot Short Ribs were fall off the bone tender and in a fraction of the time.

When I talk about healthy recipes, Im not talking about going fat free, vegetarian or not eating red meaT. Or cutting out grains or dairy. Obviously people do have different dietary restrictions for various reasons. For me its about eating real food. Learning how to replace things like high sodium seasoning packets and sugary marinades with healthy swap outs that are easy and actually cheaper.
