It's my girl Sheri Castle!!! Sheri writes an amazing cookbook. Her New Southern Garden Cookbook and The Southern Living Community Cookbook sit on my shelves with broken spines and food stains all over them. And now she's written a new Southern cookbook for everyone's favorite new small appliance! I really love my Instant Pot, but I have not loved many cookbooks for them. Most were published quickly without testing and it shows. (A notable exception is How To Instant Pot by Daniel Shumski). An award-winning cooking instructor, Sheri's directions are always spot on and delicious. Hoppin' John Risotto? Hummingbird Coffee Cake? I'm all in!— Kelly
