White Chicken Chili in the Instant Pot

Much to my dismay, the groundhog saw his shadow, so that means 6 more weeks of winter.  It has been a cold one, and there is nothing I enjoy more than a warm bowl of healthy chili or soup for dinner on a chilly winter night.  Who am I kidding?  I love to eat soups and chili year-round.

This healthy and hearty White Chicken Chili is a family favorite.  It comes together very easily in the Instant Pot, and can also be made on the stovetop.  I adapted the recipe from an old recipe I got in a grocery store flyer years and years ago when I was in college.

I bought myself an Instant Pot last year to replace my slow cooker.  I loved the idea that I could saute vegetables and ground meats directly in the pot and not have to dirty multiple pans.  And instead of cooking all day, the pressure cooking function allows for putting together a meal in just minutes!

One of my favorite time savers when cooking is this frozen garlic by Dorot.  The minced garlic is packaged in individual cubes and can be added to any recipe.  No need to defrost, it cooks up quickly.  I buy it at Trader Joe's but have also seen it at the local grocery store as well.

5 Budget-Friendly Skin Care Essentials that Actually Work

Finding products that are both effective and affordable can be difficult.  I have experimented with many skincare products over the years, both high-end and drugstore, and found these 5 budget-friendly items that I've incorporated into my regular skincare routine.  Most of them can be found in the drugstore, at prices that won't empty your wallet!

Winter can wreak havoc on your skincare routine.  Particularly for us ladies with aging skin.  Although I have had combination skin my whole life, I am now noticing the need to use products geared toward dry skin to fight and prevent those pesky fine lines and wrinkles.  These products target those problem areas and leave the skin feeling moisturized and smooth.
