Do you have to thaw meat before cooking in a instant pot?Jessica: You don’t have to thaw all meats when cooking them in the Instant Pot, but I recommend thawing ground beef first and browning it in the IP using the saute’ feature.

I haven’t cooked a roast from frozen, but I have cooked frozen meatballs with no issues. Hope this helps some!

Do you have an easy solution to remove melted candle wax from various surfaces? Metal candle sticks, wood table, etc? Thanks for your time and generous help!Jessica: Oh, candle wax can be a pain, but ice should help to get it off of surfaces. If it’s something small enough, you can put it in the freezer for a bit, then the wax will harden and flake off pretty easily. Wax on a table can be removed by laying a towel (one that you don’t mind tossing in the trash) on the wax, then taking an iron and running it over the towel that is covering the wax. the wax will lift from the wood surface and adhere to the towel. Hope this helps!
I have a couple of indoor ferns. I mist them regularly, make sure the soil remains moist in fact i have even put a layer of moss over the soil to hold in moisture. They live in my bathroom but I am still getting brown crispy fronds. I am baffled! Do they maybe need fertilizer?Jessica: They may be getting watered too much…if that happens, you can get root rot and the water won’t go out to the fern leaves. I have never had that happen, but it could be. I hope this helps! Some ferns are tough to keep alive.
What would happen if you used calcium carbonate instead of sodium carbonate as this is readily available in South Africa?
