Cooking with Your Instant Pot® Mini: 100 Quick & Easy Recipes for 3-Quart Models {Book Review}


Cooking with Your Instant Pot® Mini: 100 Quick & Easy Recipes for 3-Quart Models is a must have if you have the size of the pot it calls for. I made the jump from just owning an 8 quart to getting a 3 quart this Spring. I primarily got the smaller size to help aid in making sides to go with larger dishes cooking the 8 quarts but since getting it, I’ve used it for far more than expected.

Get 300 bonus SB when you sign up for Swagbucks in October

All throughout October you can earn large bonuses when sign up as my referral on Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already, like searching the web, watching videos, shopping, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, or PayPal cash.

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a 300 SB bonus! Here’s how:

1. Sign up using this link

2. Earn 300 SB total before November 1st, 2018. You’ll get a 300 SB bonus for it!

3. That’s it. It’s super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I’ve earned 20,000 Swagbucks easily in a month and spent it on entertainment and craft stuff for my kids and me to enjoy during the Fall and Winter season together as a family! There are so many options of gift cards to chose from to earn off Swagbucks that I am thinking of getting a restaurant one next time and take the whole family out as a treat!

Spooky Fun with the October Shop Swago Board!


Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shop Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It’s a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you’ve never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly.

Click here to get started!

Here’s what you need to know to get your 150 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):

Go to the Swag page and make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.

Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.

Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value – up to 150 SB.

Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.

The game ends Friday, October 12th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

Many years ago he wrote the song “I Can Only Imagine” which speaks of how one might react being before God in the kingdom of Heaven. This book seeks the same questions as that song but in a way, a child might ask and wonder about.
