Book Review of Instant Cooking by Six Sisters' Stuff
I had heard so many good things about Instant Pots that when I received one for Christmas a couple of years ago, I was super excited! Then, reality hit. What am I supposed to do with this? Wait, how long are you supposed to cook this? What is a slow release? I gave it a shot and tried a few recipes and all I got was a BURN notification. Every. Time. Ahhhhhhh!!! What am I doing wrong?? So, I kind of gave up. I still use my Instant Pot, but I pretty much cook chicken (plain) and hard-boiled eggs. When I received a copy of Instant Cooking by Six Sisters’ Stuff I was excited because maybe I could redeem myself!
“Six Sisters’ Stuff is one of the most popular blogs for quick and easy cooking and entertaining at home for families. In their tenth cookbook, the sisters introduce a new wrinkle to their repertoire—‘instant’ cooking in a multicooker, such as the Instant Pot. Multicookers are a fantastic tool for those looking to save time in the kitchen as well as those who are looking for simpler, more flavorful, and healthier fare.
With more than 100 recipes specifically designed for and tested in an electronic multicooker, everyone from beginning cooks to experienced chefs can find something to master in Instant Cooking with Six Sisters’ Stuff. From entrees to side dishes to desserts, there are multicooker options available that fit the bill.”
My Book Review:
Six Sisters’ Stuff to the rescue! There are so many easy, great recipes in this cookbook. In their introduction they explain the basic terminology of the Instant Pot and some of the accessories you might need. I do wish they had pictures to go with these terms. I didn’t know what a trivet was, and I had to look it up. By the way, this is what a trivet is:
I even have one and I didn’t know it. Haha!
I’ve hard-boiled eggs, but I didn’t know you could cook corn on the cob, green beans, broccoli, pasta, or rice. Some of the recipes that look the yummiest are the Beef and Broccoli, Pork Carnitas, Biscuits and Gravy, Breakfast Hash, Cilantro-Lime Rice, and Deep-Dish Dark Chocolate Brownie Pie. What?!?! You can cook Brownie Pie in the Instant Pot? I guess so! I think this will be the first recipe I try!
As usual, the sisters have put together a great cookbook! Instant Cooking is well-laid out. The recipes are easy to read and understand, the pictures are great (there’s a picture for each recipe), and the ingredients are simple–I usually have them in my pantry. I am so excited to try these recipes. As a teacher, I sometimes come home right in time for dinner, and I need some easy weekday meals. Thank you, Six Sisters’ Stuff, for helping me out! Instant Cooking is going to be a lifesaver! Will it fix my BURN issue? I sure hope so!
