Farm Themed Tuffet



I started making these adorable tuffet's about 9 years ago, just before my first grandchild turned "1"! Eleven grandchildren later, I have made at least 13 tuffet's (honestly, I have lost count)! I have them surrounding various themes and I add various materials to enhance the theme. Many of my tuffets are pictured on this Link. Instructions and materials used are also on this Link.

Instant Pot Chorizo Clams



Everyone that know me, knows I love clams! Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I had the pleasure of eating clams on a regular basis. I considered myself very lucky, and still do! My Aunt Gail would have a annual clam fest every Summer. They would actually go out and dig the clams early in the morning on event day. It was amazing! I have a few recipes for clams, this one is Wee Bear's favorite, that I adjusted for the Instant Pot!

Instant Pot Strawberry Compote


 By popular demand! I am posting the strawberry compote request for my delicious New York Cheesecake!

Instant Pot Water Test



Have you purchased and used a "Instant Pot" yet?  Have you even heard of the "IP"? Well, let me enlighten you, if you are not part of this craze!

If you have been keeping up with Wee Bear and I, you know we purchased a motorhome, a 34 foot beauty we named "Aria"! We are planning to explore the United States with our son and family, and anyone else that is brave enough to come along! More on that later......and possibly a new blog in the makings....I have purchased and created the domain name "whereRVgoingtoday"! Stay tuned!

Okay, on to the "IP" ......I was outfitting Aria with her dishes, pots, pans, etc. and read about the "Instant Pot". I was interested, and read more. Basically, it is a programmable pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, egg cooker, warmer, saute and steamer all in one! This is perfect, as any RV owner knows, space is limited in the RV, no matter how big you are! I read reviews and ......well, I dove in! Reading about IP users making their favorite recipes and 5000 other delicious things they have been cooking in their Instant Pot. I have joined several IP groups on Facebook and read about their experiences. This weekend I made my first few dishes, New York Cheesecake with strawberry compote, Crispy Carnita's, Monkey Bread, Spanish rice.....and a few more. All this, after doing the "Water Test".
