When we were travelling full-time, I made the plunge and bought my Instant Pot…. well, actually my wonderful husband bought me my Instant Pot. At first, like most people, I was super hesitant and really didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I had never used a pressure cooker of any sort before, and had NO clue how it worked.
But now, about a year after owning this super-cool gadget, I’ve fallen in love! Not only can I cook frozen meat in 20-30 minutes and have it taste moist and delicious, I can also do a wide range of other things – from steaming, to sauteeing, to making apple sauce, to cooking full meals in one pot.
When we were travelling, it was a life saver. But now that we are on the farm, it comes in even more handy because we get so busy sometimes, I just need an easy fix – and this does it!
In March of this year, we found out that we were pregnant with our second baby! After an early loss in January, it was suprising to us that we got pregnant again so quick but, God had other plans! I’m now about 20 weeks along with what will be our first child, and we just found out that our sweet baby is a boy and things are really starting to get “real”! Because of that, I’ve been planning and prepping as much as possible. That’s why I was SO excited to hammer out this Instant Pot Rainbow Carrot Baby Food recipe! It is so, so easy and I can’t wait to feed our sweet rainbow baby all of the rainbow carrots he wants!!
