I Made The Plunge Into an Instant-Pot-Recipe Linkup

nsta-Pot-Recipes-LinkyAfter looking at Insta Pot for the past 2 years, I finally made the plunge and bought me one. Being that I am now only cooking for 1 most of the time, I decided I needed to make meals that I could freeze for those times when I didn’t want to cook. I have a Crock-Pot but I want the convenience of making meals fast and after searching recipes on Pinterest and reading about using an Insta Pot that helped me make the decision to purchase and I knew if I waited until Nov I would find a good price.

My choice was for Instant Pot Duo 80 SV 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker,  with 14 one-touch controls it is a Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Saute, Yogurt Maker, and Warmer, 8-QT, Stainless Steel/Black

Easy to clean: fingerprint-resistant stainless steel lid and components and accessories are dishwasher safe. And I love the stainless steel inner pot is made with a 3-ply bottom for durability and is healthy and dishwasher-safe. You can learn more on Insta Pot.com

I’m a Prime member so it was easy to shop and have it delivered. And so you know this is (not an affiliate post) nor was I asked my the company to write this post, it is just that, I am looking for recipes to use in my new Insta Pot that has been tried by my fellow bloggers and I am reaching out to you for your recipes, tips, and experience with an Insta Pot.

So here are the rules for the request:
1) If you have recipes you have tried and love and you would like to share, add it to the Linky

2) If you have an Insta Pot Pinterest Board with recipes, share that link in comments.

I’d like to keep those separate and so we can all visit your blog for tips and use along with your recipes you have tired for your family.

The Linky is Open until 6/30/2019 If it is not an Insta Pot recipe, it will be removed. Thank you.

Have Your Coffee and Eat it Too: The Best Coffee Dessert Recipes You Have to Try

The-Best-Coffee-Dessert-Recipes-You-Have-To-TryAround 49% of Americans drink coffee on a regular basis. You’ve heard the jokes about people needing an IV drip of this brown stuff since people are so hooked on it.

Perhaps you’re one of those guilty Americans who need coffee to live and function. But just drinking it won’t suffice.

If that little brown bean is life, then you’ll want to read on. Here are some of the best coffee dessert recipes around!Infuse-caffeine-into-some-treats-so-you-can-get-your-fix-while-enjoying-something-delicious

Caffeine Brownies

Infuse caffeine into some treats so you can get your fix while enjoying something delicious. These caffeine brownies are so fluffy you won’t want to stop stuffing your face with them.


  • 8 cups black coffee
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Boil your black coffee until it’s reduced to just 2/3 cup; stir often. This should take about 30 minutes and it’ll be thick and concentrated. Let it cool.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease your 8×8 baking pan.
  3. Stir together the sugar butter until it’s smooth. Then, beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour in the coffee concentrate and cocoa powder; stir until there are no more lumps.
  5. In a different bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir this dry mix into the wet mix. Mix until smooth.
  6. Take the batter and spread it all around the baking pan. Bake until a toothpick can be inserted and taken out cleanly; this should take about 30 minutes.
  7. Let the brownies cool and then cut it into small bars.

Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream

On a hot summer day, you probably won’t want to sip a hot coffee. So have some ice cream instead to get your coffee fix. For this recipe, you’ll need an ice cream machine.


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup caramel dessert sauce


  1. Mix together the first 4 ingredients until the sugar granules are dissolved.
  2. Add the heavy cream and stir until smooth.
  3. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  4. Make “soft serve” ice cream in your machine.
  5. Put half of the ice cream in a tub and pour half of the caramel dessert sauce on top. Repeat this process.
  6. Get a knife and swirl the caramel sauce around the ice cream.
  7. Cover the tub and leave the ice cream in the freezer for at least 2 hours before eating.

Mocha Truffles

This recipe doesn’t take a professional baker to make. In fact, you can bring these truffles to life with your microwave! Mocha-Truffles-dont-take-a-professional-baker-to-make


For the truffles, you’ll need:

  • 24 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese (softened)
  • 3 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 teaspoons water

For the coating, you’ll need:

  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening


  1. Put some wax paper onto your baking sheet.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips for the truffles in your microwave. Take it out every 30 seconds to stir.
  3. Mix in all the rest of the ingredients for the truffles until it’s blended.
  4. Chill the truffle mix in your refrigerator. This should take around 30 minutes.
  5. Use your hands to roll small 1-inch balls from the truffle mix and place them on the baking sheet.
  6. Chill the truffles for a few hours.
  7. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening for the coating in the same manner for the truffle mix.
  8. Dip each truffle into the melted chocolate mixture and place them back on the baking sheet.
  9. Let the coating set, which should take at least 30 minutes.

Coffee Mug Cake

This is another recipe where you can make in the microwave. The best thing about this one is its serving size is one!


  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee


  1. Put the chocolate chips and olive oil into a cup. Microwave it for about 30 seconds to melt the chocolate chips.
  2. Stir in the dry ingredients and mix well with a fork.
  3. Add the wet ingredients and mix again with your fork.
  4. Microwave the mixture until it’s cooked through; this should take about 1 1/2 minutes.
  5. Let the mug cake cool off for a few minutes before digging in.

Easy Mocha Trifle

For those of you who are lazy, this recipe will be a cinch to make. We make use of instant pudding mix, package brownie mix, and store-bought toffee bars for this dessert.

Sure, this recipe uses instant coffee. But you can enjoy your shot at home while making these desserts with a quality espresso machine.


  • 1 box brownie mix
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 packages instant white chocolate pudding mix
  • 4 teaspoons instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 cups frozen whipped topping (thawed)
  • 3 bars chocolate-covered toffee bars (chopped)


  1. Make the brownies first by following the instructions written on the box. After they’ve cooled down, cut them into 1-inch cubes.
  2. Mix together the pudding mix and milk.
  3. Once it thickens, then add the instant coffee.
  4. Fold in the whipped topping.
  5. Get out your serving glasses. Put a layer of brownie on the bottom, then pudding mixture, and lastly, the chopped toffee bar pieces. Repeat as many times as you want for multiple layers.
  6. Chill the glasses for at least 30 minutes before eating.

Anti-Inflammatory Mango Smoothie and CBD Oil

Anti-Inflammatory-Mango-SmoothieIs pain normally a part of aging, or from past injuries? After reading some interesting articles and searching for how to get rid of pain, either through physical therapy or using OTC meds or even prescriptions I stumbled on a drink made of Mangos, Bananas, Turmeric powder, almond milk. I was all for trying the recipe as I can’t take ibuprofen as it started hurting my stomach, a good sign it’s a bad thing. I will do anything to alleviate the pain I am experiencing without the use of drugs. The natural way is the best way.

Turmeric comes from the root of the plant and is considered an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. In an article in 2018 (1) “Science has started to back up what Indians have known for a long time–it really does contain compounds with medicinal properties.” These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin.

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and a very strong antioxidant. However, the curcumin is best eaten with a fatty meal like my recipe has coconut oil for the body to absorb into the bloodstream, and I have read that adding “black pepper” helps the absorption of curcumin. (So to be clear, and not confusing, curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric.)

I’ve been looking for more alternative ways to help my pain, recently I had a flair up of Bursitis in my left leg while dealing with lower back pain from accidents years ago. So this recipe is just one that I have made exclusive for inflammation and just one way I am getting relief.  I found the original recipe on Pots and Plants after she shared her recipe on one of my Wordless Wednesday Linky Party 10/10

After attending a class at Oasis To Zen Wellness Center in Las Vegas, and to learn more about CBD oils and tinctures, since then I have been using CBD oils creams, lotions and tinctures and I am liking how it is working. You see you can add CBD oils and tinctures to any smoothie you make for its benefits, just follow the directions. And you can use creams, lotions, and ointments topically in relief of pain, which I am finding useful for arthritis in my hands and neck and the Bursitis I mentioned. 

Note: If your not sure about the use of CBD oil products you can catch a couple of my articles for insight, CBD oils do not have THC in them and are not derived from Marijuana, they are extracted from a Hemp plant and have a plethora of uses and work on the Endocannabinoid system in our body.

Here is one I wrote, 7 Reasons CBD Oil is Great for Anti-Aging and there is mounting research into CBD oil products even the medical community is getting on board and products can now be found in stores, however, what I have found is that they are not as potent as products you would find at a store that sells CBD oil and tinctures exclusively and offers education about CBD oils and uses. I found a great article here CBD Oil Review.org

What are your thought on the use of natural products and have you tried CBD oils yet, I would love to hear from you in comments.

Disclaimer: The information found in this article is intended to help my readers to learn a bit more about CBD oils, Turmeric and Curcumin and my use and results, however, it is recommended that you consult with your health care provider for your health care decisions.
