Spicy Pulled Pork InstantPot, InstantGratification

I just received an InstantPot pressure cooker for my birthday!  I have previously professed that I am a KITCHEN GADGET FREAK.  I am not exaggerating, I love kitchen appliances.  I am the “what was I thinking, forehead slap” owner of donut hole pans, a strawberry corer, […]
