    So many of your recipes use Instant Pot. I don’t have one of those. Can you help me?

      I only just got my instant pot, until then I just substituted my slow cooker. I still use my slow cooker because sometimes low and slow is better than instant! This is especially true of chili and stews.

      Hi Lynn! Most, if not all, Instant Pot soup recipes can be made in the slow cooker!

    Hi there: I am seriously in the mood to make numerous batches of soup to pop into the freezer to cut down on daily cooking grind. Would be great if you tagged your recipes as to whether they freeze well. Love your site !!
