  1. Forget my toddler I am making all these delicious recipes and eating them myself! LOL. I love doing “fancy” mac and cheese because they are easy and I can just throw them in the instant pot and forget about it until dinner time!

    1. Me too! It’s one of the easiest things to make and these recipes look good ? Looking forward to trying them myself.
      Thanks for stopping by, Betty
