Yikes!!  They state free from AND made on shared lines with top allergens - NO, NO, NO!!!  The post in the link says all top 8, but it's not that many.  Still, though, brands like Enjoy Life should be reliable and truly free from.  Not cool, Mondelez, not cool. 

The chocolate chips have warnings for milk now, too, I believe.  (They were made in a facility with milk before, in a dedicated room, and I don't think that has changed, but they now have a cautionary statement about it... not cool.)

Recipes & Cooking / Re: Instant Pot!
« Last post by BensMom on December 06, 2018, 02:51:14 PM »
So this is what annoys me...the recipe I am making says that it cooks for 15 minutes, but if I want it to be done when the kids get home how much time do I need for it to come up to pressure?

Usually whatever I make in the IP can sit for a while, so I don't usually worry about it too much, but if I'm trying to time something, I usually factor in about 10-15 minutes to come up to pressure and another 10 for natural release if that's needed.
