  1. I find that there are errors and omissions in many recipes you provide which is leaving me a bit skeptical. In this"Instant Pot Texas Black-Eye Peas Caviar" recipe the ingredients don\’t match the instructions!!! Would love to know the correct recipe. I have another query regarding a recipe on 25 January 2018 for "CHICKPEA FLOUR QUICHE"…….Does it contain EGGS? as I have never had a quiche made without eggs!!
