Review: The Essential Instant Pot Cookbook by Coco Morante

I’ve recently received another book from Blogging for Books to review.  The great thing about Blogging for Books is that you get to choose the book you would like to review.  I’ve had an Instant Pot for about 2 years now and have always loved it, so I thought it would be great to get The Essential Instant Pot Cookbook by Coco Morante.  I am SO glad that I chose this book as it’s already been used quite a few times!

Review: Hello Fresh

During my first trimester I lacked a lot of motivation to do anything when I got home from work.  I didn’t have any sickness at all but had a lot of dizzy spells and felt exhausted.  When I would get home from work, I would spend the night on the sofa.  I did a lot of ‘planning’ for our evening meals but they never came to fruition!  We decided to give a meal delivery service a try; something that would be easy for us to make with minimal effort.

We had a lot of options to choose from but we decided to go with Hello Fresh as we had the $35 discount code.  This meant our first box would only be $25 for 3 meals.  An excellent starting price.  We were very impressed from the moment we were choosing our meals online.  They give you 8 meal options each week.  You can opt for the company to choose your meals or you can edit your box and choose what you would like.  With Adam only eating certain food, we chose our own meals!  We picked our delivery date and were excited for our box to arrive.

Lighten Up, Y’all – Classic Southern Recipes

I’m still getting used to the cooking styles and tastes that come from the Southern States.  Most things I have loved but some things have just blown my mind because I just never seen them before.  When this Lighten Up, Y’all cookbook by Virginia Wells became available for review on Blogging For Books, I snapped it up quickly!

Easy…ish Chicken Potstickers/ Gyoza

Back in Sheffield, we used to go to a number of little sushi restaurants.  I loved the little plates whizzing around the conveyor belt waiting to be snapped up.  Adam has never really liked any fish so he was never a fan of any of the rolls.  He usually ordered chicken katsu and chicken gyoza.  I can’t blame him really; they are both really yummy!

The Paleo Chef – Easy to follow, East to cook & Easy to eat!

I recently joined the Blogging for Books site… you should totally check it out!  Free books in exchange for a review!  I didn’t go for a fiction book to start with as some of the non-fiction books appealed to me more.  There were a couple of craft books but this cook book really stood out to me.  All of my cook books are still back in the UK so I jumped at the opportunity to have one that I could flick through and make notes in!
