Thank you so much for joining us at Sisters Under Pressure! We are Melissa and Danielle, and we absolutely LOVE our Instant Pots! 🙂 Danielle purchased one, and Melissa purchased one the same day. We didn’t expect to start a blog, but after playing with recipes and taking fun photos to post on social media (who doesn’t love a great food photo?? 🙂 ), we decided it would be fun!! 🙂 We are the new kids on the blogging block – be prepared for fun, deliciousness, and shenanigans!
I am 27 years old and currently living in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I just finished up my bachelor’s in physiology, cell and molecular biology with an emphasis in neuroscience at the University of South Dakota (go yotes!). I live with my husband Eric and our two dogs: a 9 year old maltese Isabel, and a 3 year old boxer/lab Dixie. We also have a bearded dragon (Basal). What can I say, we are animal lovers!! Eric and I were just married in April 🙂 In our free time, Eric and I really enjoy cooking and baking, camping, fishing, and exploring the outdoors. We are shameless winos and we also love a good craft beer!
As if life hadn’t been hectic enough between finishing up my degree and planning a wedding, on July 24th Eric and I became a family of 3 with the birth of our amazing daughter Freya. With such a busy life, am so thankful to have discovered the Instant Pot– it has made cooking an easy but delicious dinner stress-free during days that feel far too short! I enjoy experimenting with food, and Eric and I are both very adventurous eaters. We LOVE a wide variety of foods from different cultures, and experimenting with different spices and flavors, so this will be a LOT of fun!
I’m from South Dakota but live in the Syracuse, New York area with my husband and two dogs, Treble and Mozart. I’m an orchestra teacher, love minions, Harry Potter, Hamilton, and all things Disney 🙂 I’m a SUPER big kid at heart, and aim to have fun with whatever I am doing. In this area I’m also known as the duct tape lady (crazy, right????). I had run a business where I made things out of duct tape and raised money for local charities. It was INSANELY fun, and a really neat way to connect with organizations and my students. Now I’m having fun playing with recipes and electric pressure cooking everything 🙂 It’s been a fun journey, and I’ve met so many new people! I’m excited to share more!
