  1. Hi Laura- most of these recipes are written for the 6 qt. Most of them can be halved to fit your mini Instant Pot! Which recipe are you looking at specifically? I can help you to know whether it will fit or if it needs to be halved. ?

  2. Oh wow – there are so many delicious recipes here! I can’t wait to start working my way through them all. I think I’ll start with that creamy ziti – YUM!
