This old-school, classic dinner favorite is a quick protein I can toss inside the pressure cooker on evenings when I just want something quick and filling for the kids. I love to pair it with garlicky mashed cauliflower or green beans.

Pork Carnitas Tacos

It's easy to get stuck in a rut, making the same ten recipes over and over again until every-one gets burned out. We eat tacos often, but I try to spice them up (literally) with different meats and seasonings so it's a meal I know everyone will enjoy but is different enough that it doesn't feel like we're having the same old thing every time.

Italian Stuffed Bell Peppers

These delicious little peppers taste exactly like pizza, oddly enough! My husband isn't a bell pepper fan but he really enjoys these — I call that a big win! They're also great for using up leftovers proteins and veggies.
