I am a lazy cook. I didn’t even cook before I had an Instant Pot. I slowly learned that I could in fact get something wholesome for my family. A year and a half later, I am still loving my Instant Pot. I am in a slump though, I just have no energy to cook anymore. Even something easy in the Instant Pot.

I have decided that I need to go back to the easy peasy Instant Pot recipes that I fell in love with to begin with. The kids are demanding. It is summer break and I have the boys all day. I am worn out by the end of the day trying to keep Techie Mamma going and keeping the boys entertained. Not to mention in Texas it is May and already feels like 100 degrees out! Nobody wants to be over a stove in these temps or heating up the oven.

One of my absolutely favorite recipes is one I have modified from Soccer Mom Spaghetti and Meatballs – This Old Gal! I have over time simplified it and made it even more lazy than originally created. This is an amazing recipe and the first one I recommend to anybody who just got an Instant Pot and is a little timid.
