Somewhere between a pinch and a dash is a smidgen, and when it comes to good cooking, a smidgen can make all the difference! Smidgen is the home cooking podcast of Red Stick Spice Company. Join host Anne Milneck as she talks about food, home cooking, how to use spices, and the joy of making flavorful meals that your whole family will love. You'll also get to follow Anne into the Red Stick Spice Test Kitchen for a live cooking session that will give you the meal inspiration you're looking for.

S1E4 Maybe you got it as a gift, maybe you bought it on a whim, but if you have an Instant Pot electric pressure cooker that is still in the box, this is the episode of Smidgen for you! (If you are an Instant Pot enthusiast, we bet you will doubly appreciate our guest and the cooking segment.) 

Bruce Weinstein is the author of The Instant Pot Bible, The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book and the forthcoming (and potentially game changing) From Freezer to Instant Pot. We talk specifically about the Instant Pot brand of pressure cookers and get Bruce’s latest and greatest in what he has been preparing in his pressure cooker. 

Host Anne Milneck walks Bruce through an Instant Pot disaster (now only referred to in whispers as The Barley Incident) in order to learn more about how we all can set up Instant Pot meals for success, save them (if necessary), and avoid the dreaded “Burn” message.

Cooking Segment: After talking with Bruce, Anne heads to the Red Stick Spice test kitchen with store staffer Cameron where they make a big pot of Smoky Instant Pot Red Beans & Rice.    

Here’s a list of the links we mentioned in the podcast:

If this episode got you to pull out your own electric pressure cooker, please let us know on on FacebookInstagram, or Twitter! We have a feeling this episode will inspire a lot of Instant Pot owners to get pressure cooking.
