Ideally, stove-top pressure cookers (PCs) should come with a gage so that you can easily monitor what is going on before, during, and after the cooking process. Unfortunately, commonly available PCs do not. Instead, we need to guess what to look for in order to make adjustments. This article… MORE

Taking advice from several different cookbooks on how to make potato-based soup, today (one day after making the original batch), I added heavy cream to my servings. The cream changed the taste from one where I was aware of small potato chunks (I did not puree the soup) to one that tasted, … MORE

The object of this pressure cooker (PC) adventure was to see how fast I could make and serve potato soup. While I used a ham slice as a base, it is not required, as I'll describe later. The time I spent making it included 5 minutes for chopping, 3 minutes to bring the PC to pressure, 10… MORE

I finally received two Lorna Sass pressure cooker (PC) cookbooks and have compared her advice on troubleshooting with my experiences. Here's what I've learned:Problem bringing the PC up to pressure (it's taking too long):? Lid isn't locked: As a new PC cook, I frequently forgot to do this.… MORE

http://tempuri.org?link=newOne of the great thing about summer is the CSA. For those of you who don't know, CSA stands for community supported agriculture. At the beginning of the summer you pay for the whole summer's worth of vegetables and then the farm can go ahead and produce them,… MORE

It was apparent at the Farmers' Market this weekend that eggplant season is here.  There were gorgeous piles of purple everywhere!  I came across this recipe for Eggplant Parmesan right here on Allrecipes back in 2007 which I adapted and have used ever since. I believe this eggplant parmesan… MORE

I approach cooking as a challenge. If I see something that looks amazing I have to try to make it. If I see an oddball ingredient in the store I want to find out what it tastes good in. That’s why when a friend of ours recently asked Kelly “I found this truffle oil at TJ Maxx. What the hell… MORE

This is the third time I've cooked rice in my pressure cooker (PC). Each time has been a surprise because I have not known what to expect. This time, I cooked two cups of rice with onion, red pepper, and a slosh of olive oil, guessed at the time, opened the PC too early, and, well, here is… MORE
