Well, one update is the Seduced by Food page, which you can read about in my Sweet Chili Garlic Shrimp recipe. Also, it talks about the new recipe card as well. So be sure to check that post out.

Instant Pot

I am joining the Instant Pot Family. I came across a great deal on an Instant Pot. My Walmart is under construction, so they marked everything down very cheap.

 

I got my Instant Pot for $30! I could not pass that deal up. No, It is not the recalled version either.

 

I already did 3 recipe developments in it. I understand why everyone is gaga over Instant Pot. It is mind-blowing!

Limoncello and Wine and Lipstick

My one friend got me hooked on Limoncello. I wanted to create a Limoncello Spritzer Cocktail for Wine and Lipstick. Which by the way, is coming along very great.

Carrabba’s Bread Pudding

Anyway, since I had limoncello, I got inspired by a dessert. I had this limoncello bread pudding at Carrabba’s Italian restaurant years ago. It was great!

 

The cookbook that comes with the Instant Pot has a bread pudding recipe in it. I did a google search to see if I can find a limoncello bread pudding like Carrabba’s. There was one on Genious Kitchen.

Instant Pot Limoncello Bread Pudding Recipe

Like most recipes, it did need a bit tweaking to be more my taste. So I used that limoncello dessert recipe as a base and challah bread. Then I made it into an Instant Pot Dessert recipe.

 

The steaming action inside the Instant pot for this recipe made the bread pudding one of the best I have eaten. That was what made me a lover of the Instant Pot. It is amazing.

Instant Pot Tips

In making this Limoncello Bread Pudding here is a few tips I have about the Instant Pot.

 

 

This way you do not have to clean inner pot so much, and you can use it for various recipes on the same day. Like, make a spaghetti dish, which takes 5 minutes to make in instant pot, yes that with uncooked noodles!

 

With the second container, you can whip up this limoncello bread pudding. You have dinner and dessert all cooked up in the Instant Pot.

Notes

  • When you make Instant Pot Recipes that require it to be cooked in a pan like this Limoncello bread pudding, you need to set the pan on the rack inside the inner container, not directly on the bottom of the pot.
  • The Ultra Insta Pot does not have steam release knob from what I understand. Refer to the manual if you have that Instant Pot.
