RECIPE

Instant Pot

traditional CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP have to be honest. I was a real skeptic when it came to the instant pot in general but especially for cooking traditional recipes such as chicken soup. I was sure it would never be as good as the slow cooked golden broth that my grandmother would make. Her soup is a legacy in which we all take such pride. Our attempts to emulate her perfection have resulted in many animated discussions, friendly competitions, comparisons, criticisms, and praise for our pots of liquid gold. If you don’t need or want a huge batch of chicken soup, the instant pot is perfect for making smaller batches and makes it worth buying the pot for this alone! There are a few rules you need to follow, so don’t play around too much with the recipe.

Serves 8

DIRECTIONS

INGREDIENTS

STEP ONE: Place all veggies, chicken, salt and pepper in the liner of the instant pot, fill with water to the MAX fill line.

• 8 quart Instant Pot (if you have 6 quart, you will just have less soup)

STEP T WO: Place the liner in the instant pot, close the lid, turn the valve to SEALING. STEP THREE: Place on PRESSURE COOK for 27 minutes. It will take a while for the pot to come to pressure then once the pot is pressurized the counter will start counting down. STEP FOUR: When the timer is done, NATURAL release for 5 minutes. Then QUICK release until all the pressure has released. STEP FIVE: Once all the pressure has released, carefully open the lid and let the soup sit in the pot (or at least the liner) until cooled (this can take several hours). STEP SIX: Strain the soup and save the carrots, parsnips and chicken if you like to cut them up for serving the soup or for eating. STEP SEVEN: Taste the soup and add more salt and white pepper if desired.

• 2 whole chicken legs (thigh and drumstick attached), skin on but trimmed of excess fat • 1 1/2 lbs whole chicken wings (not split) • 1 cooking onion, peeled and chopped • 1 leek, white and green part only, cut in half in the length and cleaned • 3 medium size carrots, peeled and chopped • 2 medium size parsnips, peeled and chopped • 1/2 bunch parsley, cleaned • 1 small bunch dill, cleaned • 2 stalks of celery or the interior heart of the celery with leaves, chopped • Neck of a butternut squash or about a 3” piece or less than 1 cup, chopped • 1 zucchini, chopped • 1 tbsp kosher salt (less if you are using kosher chicken) • About 20 peppercorns or white peppercorns • Water • Kosher salt and ground white pepper • Noodles for serving (I use flat egg noodles)

STEP EIGHT: You can freeze the soup in batches with the carrots, parsnips and chicken pieces right in the soup. STEP NINE: When ready to serve, boil up some noodles for each bowl. ◆ CAROLYN COHEN, Founder/Chef/Recipe Developer of DeliciousDish.

HOME DÉCOR

Which

FLOORING IS RIGHT

FOR YOUR HOME? YOU’VE FINALLY MADE THE DECISION TO UPDATE YOUR HOME, BUT FIND YOURSELF STUCK WHEN IT COMES TO CHOOSING FLOORING. NARROWING IT DOWN CAN BE STRESSFUL AND CONFUSING. HOW CAN YOU DECIDE WHICH FLOORING IS RIGHT FOR YOUR HOME?

16

To begin with, think about your lifestyle and the way in which you use your home and/or the room you are looking to refurbish. Are you looking to do yoga in the family room, host lots of dinner parties, allow the dog to run around freely, or have the kids and their friends have picnics inside? Depending on what your lifestyle looks like and the use of the room, you will need to choose something that reflects that. Regardless, opting for a floor that is durable, comfortable, and that enhances and blends well with the look of the space is important. Balancing your needs with your style is what you should be considering, as mixing practicality with your personal taste is where the decision lies. Once you have that figured out, choosing flooring options will be a lot more fun and straight-forward!


Before thinking about styles and materials, ask yourself these questions – how many people are going to be regularly using the room? How much traffic will the floor receive? Are children and pets going to be using it? How long do you want your floor to last? How often do you want to clean the floor? These simple questions will help you in determining which flooring is right for your home.

home, compared to hardwood floors. For those of you with children, carpets provide a warm and inviting space for the family to gather around, and anti-skid surfaces are a safe way for your young ones to play without hurting themselves. The many different styles of carpets can enhance your room and add warmth.

HARDWOOD

Keeping your lifestyle and budget in mind, tile or vinyl is a great option for those with young children, pets, or for areas that will have exposure to water, spills, and or other liquid materials. Perhaps you are an artist who works from home, or live in an area that might be exposed to moisture. Tile is a good option for bathrooms where your kids may leave behind puddles of water, in the laundry room, a studio, and in the front hall. Mud rooms where your kids and pets may track in dirt from playing outside do well with tile or vinyl flooring as well.

If you are simply just changing the floor and not the entire room, be sure to choose a floor that compliments the current furniture in the room, and one that goes with the overall decor and look of your home. If you are redoing the entire space, think about the textures, colours, and finish that appeal to you. Hardwood floors are more durable and will last a long time, as well as add value to your house. If you are planning on having many people come in and out of the room, perhaps do yoga, or are a cook who loves to spend lots of time in the kitchen, consider hardwood floors. They’re more comfortable to stand on for long periods of time, stand up to lots of traffic, and provide a warm and inviting feel to the area.

TILE OR VINYL

Choosing which flooring is right for your home isn’t as hard as it seems and once you’ve answered a few of these key questions, you’ll be on your way to glorious new flooring! ◆
