Instant Pot Hard Boiled Egg

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.

At night, when I reflect back on what I did or did not accomplish, I always find it hard to summarize what happened. Because really, what did I do? Anything worthwhile? Anything that matters?  It seems that my daily […]
