Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

Friends, I bought my Instant Pot in 2016.  Then I shamefully let it sit in the box. In the cupboard. For months. I knew I’d probably love it, but I was so hesitant to get started.

This + That

Summer is here!  I mean, not technically, but for our family because the school year wrapped up this week. We’re loving the sunshine, the longer days, popsicles, park visits, and sleeping in. Jokes.

Anything that matters?  It seems that my daily […]

Five Favorites

Tonight I’m watching Billy Graham: An Extraordinary Journey. It was on TV shortly after he passed, but I bet it’s available somewhere … OnDemand or something. Anyways, it’s so good. I’ve always been a fan of biographical reports, but this one is extra special to me because I accepted Jesus into my heart at one […]
