I’ll be speaking at the Arcadia Public Library this Saturday at 11:30AM! Talk will include a live demo and samples, how to choose, use, and maintain your Instant Pot, and lots more hot tips and tricks. I’ll also have copies my book handy. Come say hi!
My latest cookbook No Pressure was recently reviewed on Instant Pot Eats! Read the review here.
They also featured one of the recipes from the book, Vietnamese Brisket Tacos (pictured above).
I did a Facebook Live cooking demo in the Instant Pot Community Group this week, you can watch it here. I make Steamed Fish With Greens and Miso Butter and you can find the recipe here.
Some recipes from my new book No Pressure were also featured on Well + Good!
It’s here! My second book, The Instant Pot No-Pressure Cookbook, has arrived! It’s available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine cookbooks are sold. Get yourself a copy and tell your friends!
A little about the book: No-Pressure is for Instant Pot enthusiasts who are looking for new and creative recipes. Drawing inspiration from around the world, No-Pressure treats the Instant Pot as a functional part of your kitchen, and uses it to make fun and flavorful dishes.
Lots going on in the Instant Pot universe! I received a copy of the German edition of my first book (above), which is totally surreal. My next book comes out in a little over a month, and I’m working on a couple of videos (stay tuned)! Meanwhile, my book randomly made an appearance in a Bill Maher rant. Wowee.
Below are some recent Instant Pot-related links I’ve enjoyed lately. I hope you enjoy them too!

Now that Thanksgiving is upon us, I thought I’d share a recipe from my last book for brown sugar sweet potatoes. I’m often struggling to figure out how to squeeze everything in the oven on the big day, so moving one dish to the cooker is a big help. The potatoes steam in the cooker before being sliced in two. Each half is topped with a brown sugar topping and quickly broiled right before serving. Lightly sweet with a little crunch on top, these sweet potatoes are a top-notch Thanksgiving side.
Sweet Potatoes with Brown Sugar Topping
from The Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook
Serves 6 to 8
1 cup water
6 medium sweet potatoes, pricked a few times with a fork
4 tablespoons butter, cubed
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch salt
- Add water to the pot and place a steamer basket or trivet on top. Arrange the sweet potatoes on the basket or trivet. Secure the lid.
- Cook at high pressure for 12 to 18 minutes (12 for small potatoes, 15 for medium, 18 for large).
- In a small bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients. Use your fingers to press the mixture together until a crumbly topping is formed.
- Once the cooking is complete, use a natural release for 10 minutes followed by a quick release.
- Preheat the oven to broil.
- Carefully transfer the potatoes to a large baking sheet. Slice each in half lengthwise and lay cut-side up. Sprinkle each half with 1 heaping tablespoon of topping and broil for 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly crispy.
