There are some good tips about meal prep planning and some handy guides. However, one recipe, the turkey chili with sweet potatoes was described as "kid friendly," because it wasn't too spicy but was actually quite sweet and extremely bland. The quinoa tabbouleh recipe said to cook on high for 20 minutes. That must have been a typo because the result was like glue, and scorched on the bottom. I happened to see too late her cooking guide at the back of the book for various foods, and quinoa was to cook on high for 1 minute, which is quite a difference. It also was extremely bland, despite our adding garlic, which we're accustomed to having in tabbouleh. No salt and pepper, either, and the lemon juice was added during the cooking. After 20 minutes of cooking, there wasn't a hint of lemon, and I think it should have been stirred in with the oil as a vinaigrette with the fresh chopped parsley at the end. We've just started using an instant pot so other more experienced folks might have been able to see the problems and not followed the recipe but, then, that's what a cookbook is for, so you have recipes to follow. Not recommended unless you are 6 years old.
