About a year ago, I purchased an Instant Pot, and it has been a game changer.  Every week, I find myself literally searching for new recipes to make in my Instant Pot.

Yesterday, I was in the mood for lentils, so I decided to make one of my favorite Indian dishes Dal Makhani using my Instant Pot.

In less than an hour, I had this amazing meal.



Along with some homemade naan…Talk about perfection 👌🏾


I try to always make enough food in order to pack for lunch the next day, as I normally don’t have time to grab bite to eat from a restaurant.



I decided to pack my lunch in my PlanetBox Rover lunch box.  If you did not know, PlanetBox is currently having a 15% off sale on all of their lunch boxes using the code Box15 at checkout. Offer valid for 3 days only, August 15-17, 2017, and not valid on orders placed outside these days. Discount good on lunch boxes only, not on other items.

Look at what I made for dinner!!!


I discovered this cracklin chicken recipe awhile ago, and love making it for dinner at least once or twice a month.  It goes perfectly with a side salad.


And I made enough for leftovers, so I was able to pack it for lunch in my Easylunchboxes.


Also packed fried rice and pickled veggies to go along with my cracklin chicken.


Here are the recipe links if interested in recreating this meals:

Fried Rice

Pickled veggies

Make sure to adjust flavors to your liking in all of these recipes.

My kids went back to school today 😁 They are now in the 9th and 7th grade. Over the past year, I’ve really focused on going from dinner plate to lunch box verses making something new for lunch daily. My kids now pack there own lunches, so most of lunch ideas I’ll be posting will […]

I am so over boring food.  I just can’t do it anymore.  I want to eat food that excites me.  That makes me shed a tear once I’ve taken my last bite.  That makes me regret the fact I didn’t make more.  That leaves me yearning for another memorable food experience. Yesterday. I pulled some […]
