It’s the Little Things #137 – Clean Mama

July 23, 2021

This week I’m sharing a fun cookbook that is new to me. I made an amazing chicken salad recipe from Mel’s Kitchen with a quick cook of the chicken in the Instant Pot thanks to I Food Real. A quick tutorial from Martha Stewart on cleaning a hot air fryer and my DIY shower spray rounds off my findings for the week. Scroll all the way down for NEWS on Homekeeping Planners 2022 – they’re coming!

I don’t know where I was, but I just found out that Vivian Howard brought out a second cookbook (I love her show on PBS). I grabbed it quickly and poured over the detailed recipes. It differs in that it teaches you how to make something (like canned citrus, caramelized onion, flavorful tomato) that you can use in a variety of recipes, and then she adds the recipes. Really funny!

We made this delicious chicken salad recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe this week and it was a hit. I love that it can be made in the morning and makes great leftovers for the next day.

I used this I Food Real method to cook the chicken breasts for the salad in the Instant Pot and it couldn’t be easier.
