The magic of the Instant Pot might get old at some point, but it's not today. Or tomorrow. Or this year. I honestly doubt I will ever get tired of reading an Instant Pot recipe and finding that it only takes a fraction of the time it would normally take on the stove. You guys — have you SEEN our Instant Pot spaghetti recipe? It only takes 20 minutes to make! That's magic.

If you're looking for a few new recipes to try out in 2019, I've found some seriously smart ones for you from our favorite bloggers. There are easy chicken dinners, chili for days, and a butternut squash soup that looks like liquid gold.
