Many years ago I inherited a pressure canner from John’s grandmother. It made a great boiling water bath canner, but since it was so very elderly, I honestly didn’t feel comfortable using it as a pressure cooker. Recently I’ve been hearing about the more modern pressure cookers, and how quickly you can get a meal to the table with them. I did a little investigating, saved up some amazon credits and ended up purchasing this pressure cooker.
Now I’m on the hunt for good recipes to try in my new gadget. I’ve pinned a few on Pinterest so far. The mac and cheese one was fabulous! But I’d love some more ideas and suggestions. Do you have a pressure cooker? What do you most like to cook in it?
Work is going well– actually, I LOVE it– and the kids continue to do well with the transition, but between work and home and school and various recertifications, I am lucky to get my email read most days, let alone do much here. (Sorry!!!) My full-time work has been slightly extended (through mid-June) to give me some needed experience assisting with c-sections. But I’ll have a bit more time after that, and get back to checking in more often. This afternoon I am getting certified in neonatal resuscitation– wish me luck! If you’re curious, here are a few brief video clips highlighting some of what I’ve been studying.
One other little note: if you’ve hunted for a recipe here lately, you may have noticed that some of them are missing. I just migrated my blog to another server and in the process seem to have lost some of the recipes. (Boohiss…) My bloggy expert is on the job and will hopefully find those lost recipes. But if not, I’ll gradually try to work on restoring them. Thanks for your patience. Thanks, as always, for checking in. And also keep in mind that some of those missing recipes can be found in my cookbook, Family Feasts. Hope you’re enjoying your spring!
