You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Cheesecake is one of my favorite foods to eat. Creamy, tangy and deliciously sweet all rolled into one delectable dessert. We are all looking to improve our health and nutrition, but don’t want to sacrifice flavor, texture and satisfaction. This cheesecake is GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE and EGG FREE. It can also easily be modified for a LOW CARB diet. I brought this cheesecake to work and shared it with my coworkers and they were SHOCKED that it didn’t contain any eggs or cream cheese. It is refreshing, with just the right amount of sweetness, without weighing you down. You are just going to have to trust me! make this cheesecake – you don’t have to be VEGAN. You will be amazed at how similar the texture and flavor is to a traditional lemon cheesecake. I’m using pecans and walnuts for the crust. Feel free to swap in almonds or almond flour, or any other nut or seed you prefer. What other delicious desserts do you love?
