So I have this silly thing about the recipes I share here being “blog worthy”. Whatever the hell that means. In some ways it makes its own odd kind of sense: I don’t want to be yet another blogger in a sea of bloggers telling you all about how my roast broccoli is somehow life changing. […]

Instant Pot Beef Stew

Throw together this Instant Pot Beef Stew from for an easy, weeknight meal that's a happy-tummy, comfort-food bowl of goodness!
