Countertop Cooking Challenge 2018 – Instant Pot Cooking Class

 Countertop Cooking Challenge


If you missed our Facebook live, check it out HERE.

I am soooo very thankful that my friend Tiffany from Eat at Home spent a few minutes today teaching me how to use my Instant Pot!

I'll be honest, after trying this thing out myself I haven't seen crazy success, but I realized it might be because I've failed to take time to read the owner's manual.




So working with her today, I learned how to make sure I used the right buttons, exactly how long it really takes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure (you need more than the 15 minute time you might think!), and how to safely release the pressure on your Instant Pot.

My Instant Pot is now sitting on keep warm, noodles are ready to be added before dinner tonight, and I'm going to try making Tiffany's Instant Pot Mac & Cheese on Monday (I can't even wait ~ my 17 year old will be in heaven!) You can find the recipe for the Slow Cooker Parmesan Soup we made this morning in the Instant Pot in the Traditional Plan week of March 26th, and I know you'll love this one.



In case you've been on the fence this week about trying out the Eat at Home, don't forget that for a few more days only you can save 25% off the Eat at Home menu plans (which I just love!) with the code COUNTERTOP at checkout.



  • Weekly menu plans for the entire month
  • A set of slow cooker menu plans
  • A set of whole foods menu plans (those are the ones we’re using right now)
  • A set of traditional menu plans
  • A weekly dessert recipe
  • One quick click to download all 3 sets of menus (in color or black and white ink ~ color coded to make your menu planning even easier)
  • Basically, you'll get 72 recipes with menu plans AND A GROCERY LIST, all included! 
  • The menu plans cost as little as $1.13 per week when you sign up for a one year plan, or try out a 1 or 3 month subscription and see what you think.




You'll find the link to the freezer labels under the February 19th Slow Cooker Meal Plans when you sign up for Eat at Home!

I used the labels HERE to print these off and pop them into my freezer bags so I know what's in each bag and how to cook it!  If you're looking for freezer meal supplies you can find all of those HERE 🙂




This coming Monday morning on Facebook Live I'll try Tiffany's Mac & Cheese recipe in the Instant Pot (I'm so excited!), and I'd love for you to join me for that too. I hope you've loved getting dinner done this week as much as I have ~ my freezer and pantry are well stocked, and we've eaten some amazing recipes too. 🙂
