Spring has sprung! Well, at least that is what I keep telling myself, as my yard is a muddy mess and the gray, rainy days seem to just keep flooding my backyard a little more with each passing day. I guess I will find reassurance from the age old saying, “April showers, bring May flowers”. Well, until I am able to pick fresh flowers from my own garden, I will continue to spoil myself with a fresh boutique to adorn the center of my table, which I will surround with delicious home cooked meals.


In this edition, we have a few family favorites that have been shared, as well as an AIO breakfast idea to help bring some life to that most important meal of the day. Additionally, we have included the dirty and clean dozen lists when it comes to fruits and veggies you eat, and last, but not least, a link to a guide to all of the accessories that work in your AIO to make it the versatile cooker it’s meant to be. We hope that you enjoy our spring edition!

The Environmental Working Group sets out to assemble a list each year of fruits and veggies that are grown conventionally, but contain an abundant amount of pesticides, pesticides that remain on our produce even after they have been washed, and in some cases, peeled. The purpose of the studies is to help consumers understand the risks, as pesticides have been proven through research to not be beneficial for our health, especially in infants and young children. The lists are created in hopes that families will keep these fruits and vegetables in mind as they shop, working to purchase organic items in lieu of conventionally grown,           pesticide ridden,  “dirty” produce.

Wash Those Fruits & Veggies 

Written by: Emma Gin 

You should always wash your fruits and vegetables before you eat them, even if you plan to peel them. They should even be washed if they came from your own garden. Non-organically grown produce may contain residual pesticides on their skin that can be transferred to your hands or mouth. Home-grown fruits and vegetables potentially carry harmful bacteria that can make you sick. To make sure that your produce is safe, clean it with a lemon juice solution. The acid it contains effectively removes dirt, pesticides and bacteria.

Step 1 
Rinse your fruits and vegetables off under a running tap. Rub the flesh with your hands to loosen any dirt. 

Step 2 
Mix a solution of 1 part vinegar, 1 part lemon juice and 3 parts water
Fruit & Veggie Cleaner Spray 


•    1  tablespoon fresh lemon juice 
•    1  tablespoon baking soda 
•    1  cup water 



For the spray; put all ingredients into a spray bottle (be careful as it will foam up). Shake gently to mix, then spray on veggies or fruit. Allow to sit for about 2-5 minutes, then rinse under cold water. 
ter in a large bowl. 

Step 3 
Immerse the fruits and vegetables in the solution; allow them to sit for 2 minutes. 

Step 4 
Remove the fruits and vegetables from the solution. Scrub them with a vegetable brush. 

Step 5 
Rinse the fruits and vegetables off under the tap. 

Step 6 
Dry the produce with a clean, lint-free towel or a paper towel. 
1.    Slice french bread into cubes. 
2.    Grease a glass heat proof bowl (i.e. pyrex) that is 7 inches in diameter. 
3.    Add a layer of bread to the bowl. 
4.    Layer one sliced banana over the bread, then sprinkle one tablespoon of brown sugar over the bananas. 
5.    Melt  the cream cheese 30-45 seconds until it’s creamy enough to spread. Cover the bananas and bread with cream cheese. 
6.    Add the rest of the bread to the bowl and layer one more sliced banana over the bread. 
7.    Sprinkle one tablespoon of brown sugar over the bananas and half of the pecans over the top. 
8.    Place sliced butter pieces over the bread as the top layer. 
9.    In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk. Whisk milk, white sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon into egg mixture. 



Hard Boiled Eggs in the AIO 
Place a rack, steamer basket or heat proof bowl (7" diameter) in your pressure cooker. 


                         TFK Cooking Show                         
5-6 slices of french bread, cubed 
4 bananas, sliced 
2 tablespoons brown sugar 
¼ cup cream cheese     nally published on Living Lo
3 eggs 
½ cup milk 
1 tablespoon white sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
Directions     curto 
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 
2 tablespoons chilled butter, sliced 
¼ cup pecans, chopped 
Pure maple syrup (optional) 
Add 2 cups of water, water doesn't need to touch the eggs. Add up to 10 eggs on the rack, the eggs can touch. 

Close and seal cover. Set pressure cooker to 8 minutes. When done, release steam. Open cover when pressure is released. Let cool, peel and eat. Hard boiled eggs cooked in a pressure cooker seem to be easier to peel. 

10.    Pour egg mixture over the bread, making sure to coat the bread well. 

11.    Pour ¾ cup water into the AIO and place a trivet on the bottom. If you don’t have a trivet to lift the pan out of the hot pressure cooker, make a sling out of a large foil strip. 

12.    Center the pan on the trivet or foil strip and lower it into the pressure cooker. 

13.    Lock the lid in place. Set the timer for 25 minutes.  

14.    When timer goes off, turn off the pressure cooker and turn the steam release valve to “venting” to release the pressure. When the pressure valve drops, remove lid and remove dish from pressure cooking pot. 

15.    Let set for 5-6 minutes, then top with sliced bananas, nuts and maple syrup before serving.
