Chicken Tikka Masala with the Instant Pot

Chicken Tikka Masala

I recently purchased an Instant Pot, and by recently I actually mean last year when they were on sale during Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Anyways shortly after the purchase I started to look for recipes that I figured would work well in the Instant Pot, one being Chicken Tikka Masala. I came across a pretty decent recipe and made some alterations to fit my palate a bit better.

Wyze IP Camera

Its been a while since I had an IP camera setup, but recently came across the Wyze IP Camera which is only $20 …. The price was kind of a deterrent at first until I looked at all of the features packed into this small/affordable IP camera.

Wyze CameraWyze had just released version 2 of their camera so I picked up a pre-order, it took a few weeks longer to arrive than expected due to some issues with the production due to dust on the new CMOS sensor, the wait was ok by me as it was more of an impulse buy rather than something I really “needed” to get by on a daily basis.

My first thoughts, once it arrived, was that it had an Apple feel to the packaging.  It was very minimal, clean and simple.

The setup was also very easy and done with all via my iPhone 8 plus.  You simply power it on, wait a few seconds then hold the setup button which gives you an audible prompt to continue the setup which is

WaterMinder

I have always had a really hard time drinking water throughout the day, in most cases, I just “forget“.   Anyways I decided to see what kind of reminder apps were out there to hopefully aid in reminding me not to sit here for hours without even thinking twice about taking a drink. There had … Read More
