Last week, I mentioned one of the things I’m doing during this time is learning how to use my Instant Pot. Appropriately enough, the theme for this week Romance Writers Weekly is our favorite dinner recipe.

True confession time: my favorite dinner recipe is the menu at one of my local restaurants, where our favorite waiters bring us food which we don’t have to prepare or clean up after.

It’s not that I don’t enjoy cooking, but things are frequently crazy enough that I leave the food preparation in the hands of my husband, who has more time. I love him, but he’s not a chef.

But since every night is “dinner in” these days, I’ll share with you some of the sites I’m poking about in as I learn to use my new tool.

Brit+Co has a wonderful listing of dinner recipes for the the beginner. Among them is loaded baked potato soup, which is a favorite of the husband. What’s holding us back? Yeast is hard to find, and that’s an ingredient.

Kristine’s Kitchen is also home for a number of recipes, and I can swear her baked potato instructions work. That is, once we realized we had to chop the potatos we have in half because the ones we can find are huge. (Seriously, these are big.) Tomorrow night, we’re making her chicken thighs, unless we can get the meat for Honey Garlic Pork Chops.

Finally, I’ve discovered Creme de la Crumb, which features all sorts of enticing looking recipes. The Balsamic Pork Tenderloin is on our list. When we can find some pork tenderloin.

Hopefully that will inspire some inspiration for you. Do you have any gadgets in the kitchen that have been gathering dust that you’re now using? Let me know in the comments, and visit Jenna Da Sie to take a peek at what she’s got cooking.

Until next time, stay safe, stay healthy.

Now Available

The Accidental ViscountessAn old feud renewed. A new scandal threatens. An unexpected romance.

Dorothea Hindley came to London for one reason: to help launch her cousin into society. The task would be easier if Dorothea’s aunt hadn’t revived a long-standing feud which could make her family a laughingstock. Her best hope to prevent that comes from Martin Drayton, Viscount Abernathy, son of her aunt’s nemesis.

Martin can’t afford the distraction of his mother’s social maneuvering. With King George mad at Windsor Castle and Parliament wrangling over the Regency Bill, he is busy forwarding the Prince of Wales’ cause. Enlisting Dorothea to help to cool the flames of the feud seems not only sensible, but mutually beneficial.

Working together sets in motion an undeniable attraction—and a scandal neither they can ill-afford. Caught in a marriage of convenience, can the accidental viscountess and her unexpected husband get their families to stop feuding long enough to save both the monarchy and their love?
