Corrie Duffy

My name is Corrigan Duffy but you can call me Corrie. I am a stay-at-home dad, with two beautiful children and a fantastic wife who could conquer the world. She doesn’t though because this would keep her away, and she would miss the kids and my cooking.

I learned that being a stay-at-home parent is an incredibly challenging and rewarding career, that will teach you invaluable lessons about life and love. Honestly, I wouldn’t give up the current relationship I have with my kids for any six or seven-figure job in the world!

However, it wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns – as any parent already knows. Besides playing games with the kids all day, you also have to do the other stuff like shopping, cleaning, and yes, cooking. Now, if anyone can tackle regular house chores, cooking comes a bit more difficult for people who didn’t start learning this mastery as children.

I stumbled at first, but over the years I have learned that cooking can be really fun and easy when you do it right. And, of course, it helps a lot to have the right tools to do it, especially when there are two little trolls running around the house.

So, the first time I saw the Instant Pot I fell in love. Ok, it was the second time. The first time was the initial test run and after nothing happened for 1 hour I figured out I forgot the sealing ring…

You see, the Instant Pot pressure cooker (regardless of model) is a wonderful tool in any kitchen (especially if you don’t have that much space). However, it does have a learning curve, which is why I decided to share my experience with the world.

For a while, I toyed with the idea of becoming a chef, but for now, I decided to be a food blogger instead. After all, I am the main caretaker for the children, and it would be a huge shift in our family life. Still, this gives me time to practice and improve.

For my blog, the goal is to add a new pressure cooker recipe every day and inspire my readers to try new ways of using their Instant Pot. I also want to encourage first-time users to dive into the magic experience of cooking with such an advanced tool.

Just to give you a small preview: I use my Instant Pot to cook family-sized dinners in one pot, make soups and stews, create delicious desserts, and a lot more. I also enjoy spoiling my family with healthy, flavorful meals, that are just as good (or even better) as if they were served in a restaurant.
