We are celebrating the frigid month of January with a show about freezer cooking. Today’s show just might inspire you to get going with that new Instant Pot you received for Christmas. We are covering the process of preparing those time-saving freezer meals and using the latest kitchen appliances to put nutritious meals on the table for your busy family. Rachel Tiemeyer is the author of the new cookbook, From Freezer to Cooker: Delicious Whole Food Meals for the Slow Cooker, Pressure Cooker, and Instant Pot. The recipes are easy, delicious, family-pleasing, and nourishing. We’ll dig into Rachel’s new recipe for the humble home cook’s Beef Bourguignon, which can be made in a slow cooker or instant pot. We’ll talk about another recipe that I contributed to Rachel’s cookbook for Barley and Chickpea Soup, which is a vegetarian soup made in the slow cooker or Instant Pot. It’s chock-full of good nutrition and fiber. Rachel is co-founder with Polly Conner of Thriving Home, a down-to-earth lifestyle blog that they began in 2012 as a way to encourage and equip moms at home. Check out their blog for lots of great recipes. Their website is one of the top sites for freezer cooking in the online space. You might remember Rachel from Episode 11 when she visited with us to talk about one of her favorite topics, freezer meals.
