#2 Instant Pot Beef Short Ribs

We spent a good deal of the year without a kitchen, but even knowing that, I find it pretty funny that my second most popular recipe of 2018 is a savory, instant pot recipe. These short ribs were fabulous, both tender and flavorful!

#5 Fresh Raspberry Crisp

Fruit crisps are always popular with my crew and so much easier than making a pie! I don’t know why it took me so long to make a raspberry crisp, but it will become a summer tradition. I like mine with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

I had loads of fresh southern peaches from the “Peach Truck,” and baked up a storm. It took a couple attempts to get this recipe perfect, but this peach bread was dense, yet tender and full of luscious bits of fresh peaches!
