Spring is just around the corner, but it sure doesn't feel like it. Snowy days and blustery winds are hallmarks of March weather, and TBH it can get a little grim when you're 100% ready for sunshine and blooming flowers and it's just not quite happening yet. And it doesn't help that you're both getting a little stir crazy (it's hard to imagine that it's just a few short months you'll be drinking rosé al fresco, riding bicycles, and generally living your best life ever). To combat the end-of-winter blues, the best thing to do is stop fighting it—just hunker down, bring out a bottle of wine, a cozy blanket, and your trusty slow cooker.
Like most of the world, we're obsessed with the Instant Pot, which was one of our Registry Awards winners of 2017.

It can be a little intimidating at first, but once you get started you'll be hooked. Here, a few of our fave recipes to brighten up a chilly day.
