Thank you so much for joining us at Sisters Under Pressure! We are Melissa and Danielle, and we absolutely LOVE our Instant Pots! ðŸ™‚ Danielle purchased one, and Melissa purchased one the same day. We didnâ€™t expect to start a blog, but after playing with recipes and taking fun photos to post on social media (who doesnâ€™t love a great food photo?? ðŸ™‚ ), we decided it would be fun!! ðŸ™‚ We are the new kids on the blogging block - be prepared for fun, deliciousness, and shenanigans!
Â Â About Melissa
I am 28 years old and currently living in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I have my bachelorâ€™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, our maltese maltese Isabel, and our adorable daughter Freya. We also have a bearded dragon (Basal). What can I say, we are animal lovers!! Â 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!
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!
Iâ€™m from South Dakota but live in the Syracuse, New York area with my husband and two dogs, Treble and Mozart. Iâ€™m an orchestra teacher, love minions, Harry Potter, Â Hamilton, and all things Disney ðŸ™‚ Iâ€™m a SUPER big kid at heart, and aim to have fun with whatever I am doing. In this area Iâ€™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 Iâ€™m having fun playing with recipes and electric pressure cooking everything ðŸ™‚ Itâ€™s been a fun journey, and Iâ€™ve met so many new people! Iâ€™m excited to share more!
