I've spent hours researching how to use a pressure cooker (PC) to make brown rice and have not come up with a persistent pattern of advice from all my sources. So today's blog is my attempt to identify a reliable baseline; one that provides direction and also describes what I'm seeing during… MORE

I was convinced that I didn't like pressure cooker (PC) cookbooks until today when I dropped in Williams-Sonoma on East 59th Street in New York City. There I met two professional cooks, one womanning the demo table, and another who was also behind the demo counter. I asked the woman giving… MORE

I'm always fearful before cooking something new primarily because if I screw up, I'm either left with nothing to eat, or with some horrific cleanup task. And so it was with my first attempt to use my pressure cooker to make brown rice. While I have successfully made stovetop rice before, I… MORE

We've had WAY too much excitement here lately in Northern Virginia.  First, we had an earthquake (5.9) last Tuesday, then this past weekend storms and loads of rain, courtesy of Hurricane Irene.  My son insisted on all of us staying at my mom's for the weekend, which in itself was stressful. … MORE

I am more impressed with simple pressure cooker (PC) timing charts than I am with PC cookbooks. What's required for any PC-cooked dish is knowing how much liquid and time is needed for a hunk (or hunks) of solid food. After you know the basics, you are free to make almost anything that… MORE

I've been enchanted with the idea that pressure cookers (PCs) provide fast cooking while keeping the high nutritional value of food, but I was a bit fearful to get started. Instead, I spent about a year looking over various PC.   At first, I thought the Kuhn Rikon Duromatic line of PCs was… MORE

Hey everyone, So, I'm new to the blog scene here and want to test out this new blogging territory. Basically, what I plan for this blog to be about is my gradual change from a meat-eating life to a plant based diet. I am already a vegetarian so it's not really from meat eating, but from… MORE

So tomorrow is my birthday! Not only that, but its my golden birthday (26 on the 26th!). And not only that, as of early this month I had my "one year in Japan"-versary.  It seems like only yesterday I was a bright eyed 25 year old stepping off the plane into the Tokyo heat and looking for my… MORE

I've been craving CCF restaurant's corn succotash since I had it 2 months ago.  I've searched some recipes online and tried it for the first time tonight.  Even though I'm sure you can use frozen corn, I really feel using the freshest corn off the cob, grilled on the BBQ, is certainly worth… MORE

I thought I would do a blog about okra, since that's the only thing coming out of my garden right now and in quite abundance. Okra is originally from Africa having come over with the slaves in colonial days. The plants it grows on can be as small a foot or two tall to over 10 feet (as mine… MORE
