Simple Instant Pot Swedish Meatballs Recipe

As some of you might know from my previous posts, I LOVE my Instant potAnd after this simple Swedish meatballs recipe I am more in love than ever. Swedish Meatballs are a family favorite around here, and while the traditional recipes aren’t too hard, they require multiple pans and some time. But not any longer. Want to know how long it took me to make this? 15 minutes. No seriously, 15 minutes from start to finish. Can it get any cooler than that? I don’t think so. So grab your instant pot and let’s get started! Oh, do not forget my favorite instant pot dessert. Apples with ice cream.

You are going to love this simple recipe for making Swedish Meatballs in your Instant Pot. Using frozen meatballs, mushroom soup, broth, egg noodles and sour cream.

Weight Watchers Mac and Cheese Recipe

Lately because of all the snow my little one has been home with me more than normal. Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time with that little girl, but trying to find something for her to eat for lunch besides a sandwich can prove difficult when I’m still trying to get some work done. Recently our family has started doing Weight Watchers so I wanted to make sure I could make something for lunch that we would both enjoy, but not undo our day. Mac and Cheese is my daughters favorite thing to have no matter the time of day so I went in search of a Weight Watchers Mac and Cheese Recipe and found one that was easy to make and tastes exactly like “normal” Mac and Cheese.

Your kids will love it and at only 4 Weight Watchers Points you will too! You can also make some Weight Watchers Berry Cobbler Cake to serve as a treat.

And since I’m loving my pressure cooker these days, I decided to make my Power Pressure Cooker XL version of my Weight Watchers Mac and Cheese Recipe. The result is amazing! This Pressure Cooker Macaroni and Cheese Recipe is my new comfort food. The macaroni is perfectly cooked and is so flavorful.

Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Easy and so delicious banana nut bread recipe. You can make this in the oven or even in the pressure cooker. It's a moist banana bread recipe that's so delicious kids love it!

My daughter begged for a huge bunch on bananas last week, with promises that she would eat every single one of them. Well, 6 days later, guess what? We had 4 very ripe bananas left, that were not going to get eaten. I hate wasting money so I had to think of something to do with them! It occurred to me that I have never tried to make banana nut bread! 

Now I have to admit something, I am NOT a baker. I don’t have a fancy mixer (although I do stare at them longingly in the store..) and I love my cakes from a box. When I looked up banana nut bread recipes a lot of them called for “cutting in cold butter” and other things that just weren’t going to work for me, and I got to thinking that it probably doesn’t for a lot of other people either, so I wanted to share this Super Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe with you guys! It takes about 5 minutes of prep, and 25 minutes in the oven, that’s it!

A super easy to make banana nut bread recipe that everyone loves. It's moist and not dry. This banana bread recipe can be made without nuts for people with allergy.

Healthy Stuffed Peppers

Easy and healthy stuffed peppers recipe. Perfect for summer picnics.

I hope you are hungry and you want a  healthy stuffed pepper because I have a treat for you. These are so good my kids ask me to make them. I know it is hard to believe but when you make them not only will you look like a gourmet cook but you will fall in love with stuffed peppers.

It gets even better not only can you make stuffed pepper in your oven. I will tell you how to make stuffed peppers in the Pressure Cooker.

These healthy stuffed peppers make a great quick dinner or a Freezer meal in a jiffy. I loved that I was able to use Jimmy Deans Sausage Crumbles. They really sped up my prep time and increased the flavor factor to an out of control “YUM!” Jimmy Dean was kind enough to send me free products coupons which were a good thing because I made several batches to freeze for those nights when I want something healthy and hearty but I do not want to actually “cook”. I am a pop it in the oven kind of gal. These also look amazing when you have a party and serve them. I am spoiling my secret sharing how easy they are to make especially since Jimmy Dean cooked the meat and that is usually the hardest and most time-consuming part.

You will need the following ingredients for your very own quick, healthy, and easy to prepare meals. Yes, you can freeze this just put it together and do not cook it until you are ready to eat it.

Healthy stuffed peppers that the whole family will love. Easy to make with Jimmy Dean fully cooked sausage.

Serve!

It is hard to imagine these tasty ingredients created this gourmet meal in minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat the peppers with olive oil and pour in some water into the pan to keep them moist then roast in a baking dish about 20-25 minutes just until cooked thru. Remove the peppers from the oven and allow to cool until you can handle them.

If you chose to freeze them do so before cooking, then you will then need to do the above instructions, but you will have to cook them for an additional 10 minutes.

*Remove from the oven and top with fresh cilantro

This is how you make stuffed peppers in the Pressure Cooker.

Pressure Cooker Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Healthy stuffed peppers recipe that's super easy to make in the instant pot.

*** Use your stuffed pepper recipe and follow these cooking instructions.

Place 1 cup of water in the bottom of your pressure cooker make sure that your pan is in there. I know a lot of people forget that part and ruin their unit. Then place a steamer or ramekins in the pressure cooker.

You will then place your stuff peppers in the Pressure cooker.

If your pepper is stuffed with precooked meat, then you will cook them for just 5 minutes.

If your stuffed pepper has uncooked hamburger meat in it, then you will need to cook your peppers for 15 minutes with a 10-minute natural release. Natural release means to open the vent and let your stuffed peppers sit in the pot.

I found that the ramekins help the peppers keep their shape.

These are a couple of my must-have accessories for your pressure cooker.
