Top 10 Most Popular Recipes for March 2019

Today I’m counting down the top 10 most popular posts from the last month. March was a busy month with TV appearances, recipe development, and working on video! I added 14 new posts to the family, and added my first non-Instant Pot recipe and my first non-food recipe.

I also started adding stovetop or slow cooker instructions where applicable. Most all my recipes can be made with or without an Instant Pot!

10. Creamy Tomato Pesto Soup

I’ve made this in the Crock Pot for years, but converted it into an Instant Pot recipe a couple of years ago. It’s creamy, vegetarian, and packed with healthy (and some luxurious) ingredients!

Serve them with Cheese-encrusted Grilled Cheese Sammies.

9. Instant Pot Frozen Chicken and Strawberry BBQ Chicken Salad

This salad is PERFECT for spring and summer! It reminds me of my girlfriends and our senior trip we took after high school. I also included instructions on how to food frozen chicken in the Instant Pot.

8. Teriyaki Meatloaf and Mashed Potato Cupcakes

This is one of my latest recipes (have you seen the video for it?) that my kids and I devoured. These single serve meatloaf and mashed potato bites are so cute for kids or for a party!

7. Ice Cream Play Dough

We have been making this silky soft, yummy-smelling play dough for years on rainy days! It occupies my kids for at least 1-2 hours, which is a definite #momwin. I know this isn’t an Instant Pot recipe, but I promise you’ll love this awesome kid sensory activity.

I’m so excited that so many of you have made this recipe! It is sooo good- an even better version of the version that inspired it from my local Thai restaurant. It’s dairy free, sweet, and spicy!

5. Simple Instant Pot Yogurt

I’m making this right now as I type this! If you haven’t tried making your own yogurt yet, you’re missing out. It’s the best yogurt you’ll ever have! The best part? Only 2 or 3 ingredients and a little waiting required.

Instant Pot Yogurt is simple, delicious, and EASY! Truly you HAVE to try this #easybreakfast  or Fast breakfast idea. Really great for meal prep and kid approved! Instant Pot Cooking


4. Secret Ingredient Deviled Eggs with Bacon and Chive

I did a TV segment on these incredible eggs in March (which got lost before airing due to a server crash, *sad tear*). Make sure you pin these for your Easter celebrations coming up. The secret ingredient is unheard of, I guarantee it!
