If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you might remember me mentioning that I have a very picky eater. My youngest child is now two and has basically four approved foods. If it isn’t a bread, cheese, fruit, or yogurt, she won’t touch it. In my quest to not live my life as a short order cook and still get dinner on the table that most of us will eat, I’ve started working hard on developing recipes that are totally kid friendly and adult approved. These Cheesy Turkey Apple Meatballs with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce are perfect for picky kids and adults alike.

I have gotten so many comments and questions lately on the Instant Pot. Yesterday this hilarious comment showed up on social media from my friend Dana, “So…I finally got an Instant Pot, and wouldn’t you know, the instructions said to have Lane come over and make something for you.” Although I laughed, and said that I would be SO happy to go over and make food for her (you can hold me to this, Dana!) this actually made this Friday’s Good Food Reads: Instant Pot really easy to write. Let’s talk about the Instant Pot! Read on further for some great Instant Pot recipes!
