Easiest Chicken Tacos Ever

My sister came to visit me last week and we were talking food (what else do I talk about) and she told me about this new appliance that she is obsessed with. The appliance is an electric pressure cooker called Instant Pot. I was totally intrigued by this thing (it has almost 10K positive reviews on Amazon!) so I snapped one up and decided to discover what all the fuss was about. Well long story short, I am sold. The Instant Pot or any electric pressure cooker is a tool that every busy person should have. Why? Because it makes food really quickly -let me re-phrase that -delicious food really quickly. Case in point, these chicken tacos.  ..

Homemade Granola

I am a total creature of habit, especially when it comes to food. When I find a good thing, I eat it over and over again. Most recent case and point, granola. I am obsessed with granola for breakfast. Topped with fresh summer fruit and yogurt, it is perfection. But do you know what is not perfection? The cost of granola at the grocery store. It is way more money than I am willing to spend, so I developed my own recipe and I can't get enough of it.  ..

Heirloom Tomato Galette

So we are officially at the height of summer and with that comes all sorts of amazing produce. My all-time favorite summer produce is heirloom tomatoes (well to be honest it is a three way tie between heirloom tomatoes, figs and white nectarines) But the color and taste of in-season heirloom tomatoes cannot be beat. I look forward to them all year. Typically less is more when it comes to heirloom tomatoes - I usually just drizzle olive oil and add a big pinch of salt and they are perfect. But in case you want to do something else with them, that is equally tasty, this recipe for an heirloom tomato galette is for you.  ..
