Hi! I'm Ruth “Rootitoot” McCusker. (Rootitoot is what my dad called me when I was a little girl.) I'm a 63-year-old Canadian grandma. I've always been a good cook and I truly love helping people, especially with Instant Pot cooking.

I know how intimidated I was by my Instant Pot when I first started and I will help you feel comfortable and confident with yours. It's the Grandmother in me. I can't help it. I want you to succeed and love it as much as I do.

I'm sharing my treasured family heirloom recipes that I learned from my mother and tweaked over the years.

If you are new to Instant Pot or even new to cooking, you're in the right place. I write step by step recipes and I don't leave anything to chance. Take my hand, come into the kitchen... and cook like a grandma.

For even more personal help, please join my Facebook group, Rootitoot Instant Pot Recipes & Help.
