Instant Pot Carrot and Sweet Potato Mash

Do you have an Instant Pot and are unsure where to begin? I felt the same way for a while, in fact it sat in the box on my dining room table for longer than I’d like to admit. Once you start tinkering with this appliance, I promise you’ll get the hang of it. The first time I used it was to make spaghetti squash, and since then I’ve used it quite a few times to cook up mashed potatoes, soup or chili, shredded chicken and the most perfect hard boiled eggs. What I’ve been loving about the Instant Pot is that I can use it in almost the same way as a slow cooker, but in less half the time. For those with busy after-school schedules (like us!), it really helps get dinner on the table without worrying too much about leaving a slow cooker on all day.

There was always a bag of jellybeans, a chocolate Easter Bunny, and other fun things like coloring books, crayons, or a fun bow for my hair. Then we would go to the backyard and hunt for Easter eggs. Some were eggshells that we dyed with fun colors and others were plastic eggs to open with usually more candy.
