Turn Instant Pot to sauté. Once the Instant Pot says HOT, add the olive oil and 2 TBSP of butter. When the butter is melted, add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Hit cancel.
Add the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and water to the Instant Pot. Break the linguine in half and alternate the direction you place the linguine in the Instant Pot as you add more.
Close the lid, and select manual for 3 minutes (rule of thumb: take the lowest cooking time on the package and divide in half, then subtract 2 minutes). When it beeps after the 3 minutes, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, release the remaining pressure, and then remove the lid. Stir the noodles around, and then add the remaining 2 TBSP of butter and Greek yogurt and stir to make the sauce creamy. Linguine will continue to absorb the liquid. Add the parmesan, and add any milk to thin, if desired.
In a small saucepot, add the sweet chili sauce ingredients, and bring to boil and simmer for a few minutes until the sauce is combined, thickened, and reduced.
Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
Add salmon to the baking sheet. Brush olive oil over the salmon, and sprinkle the salmon the salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Then drizzle 1-2 TBSP of the sweet chili sauce over the salmon.
Cook until done. Time varies depending on the thickness.
2 14 oz. cans of cream of chicken or celery soup (or 1 of each)
32 oz. chicken broth (plus more if you want more of a soup)

3 celery stalks, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
2 TBSP butter, sliced (optional)
1 24 oz. package of frozen Reames egg noodles
Salt and pepper, to taste

In a medium bowl, combine the cream soups, broth, bullion, and thyme leaves; then pour the soup mixture over the chicken.
Add the celery and carrots, and then add the sliced butter.
Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. After 6 hours, remove chicken and shred/chop and add back to the crockpot. Add the frozen egg noodles, cover and cook for an additional 2 hours. You may stir a few times during the 2 hours, and add more broth at this time if you want more of a soup.

Meanwhile, chop carrots, celery, onion, garlic and ginger.
After the chicken is cooked and removed from the Instant Pot, turn the pot to saute, and when the pot says HOT, add the butter. Once the butter melts, add the carrots, celery, and onion, and saute for 5 minutes.

Serve over pasta with: shredded sharp cheddar cheese, chopped onions, and kidney beans
Heat a large heavy bottom soup pot over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the onion and cook about 5 minutes or until it begins to caramelize around the edges. Use your hands to crumble the ground meat into the pot. Brown the meat, breaking up the meat as you go.
Once the meat is browned, drain fat, if necessary, and then add in the chili powder, smoked paprika, cocoa powder, cumin, allspice, cloves, salt, cayenne, cinnamon and garlic powder. Give it a good stir and let cook about a minute or two. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaves, and sugar.
Stir everything to combine. Simmer, covered for at least 3 hours or up to all day over low heat. The longer the better. Alternatively you can transfer the chili to a crockpot and cook on low all day.
Serve over pasta with cheese, onions, and kidney beans.
