August Recipes

We love summer produce recipes because everything is so very Fresh!! I love using what is in season because not only does it have the best taste, but it’s cheap!! Ok well it depends on where you live but for the most part this is true everywhere.

What should I make for dinner on a hot day?

Well if you ask me the first thing is to NOT turn on your oven!! Using a pressure cooker eliminates the added heat into your home and cooks in a fraction of the time y’all.

Yes, we double dip during the summertime and use our Ninja Foodi pot to cook a few things at the same time too. That’s why this pot above looks a bit different. The pressure cooker functions work the same though so you can swap recipes between the two.

Why is this August pressure cooker recipes so helpful?

  • Because we’re all busy and need a bit of meal planning help every once and a while.
  • Summer vegetables are so abundant and should be used as often as possible when they’re fresh.
  • Using in season produce means it’s not only the most flavorful, but the cheapest time of year to buy them too!
