My husband hates the smell of cooking fish, so until now, I've never made it at home. For health's sake, however, I've begun adding seafood to my diet every other day. (Is a diet of seafood, including a crabby husband, healthy?) Today, I decided to cook a cod fillet in my pressure cooker… MORE
From The Blog:  Pressure Cooker Cooking
7 - Oops! This is what an improperly sealed pressure cooker looks like.
6 - Depending on the length of time a PC remains covered when done, lot of condensation forms.
5 - This is the Fagor's steam vent chamber, where pressurized steam escapes.
4 - When pressure is achieved on a Fagor, steam no longer appears under the handle.
3 - Depending on amount, pre-pressure steam might create a puddle on your range top.
2 - Pre-pressure behavior on the Fagor causes steam to escape.
1 - This is a Fagor Dual pressure cooker lid valve assembly.
Steam splash can leave an oily residue on other surfaces.
With burners all off, I draped a damp cloth over a large strainer to absorb some of the spray.

About this Cook
My name is Karen Little. I'm a travel writer (see and adult kick scooter evangelist ( My current love is going sightseeing around the USA on my trusty kick scooter and encouraging others to do the same!
My favorite things to cook
I became a vegan (vegetarian) in January 2011, then switched to being a modified vegetarian in August. While I still primarily eat vegetarian meals, I now eat meat a few times a week. That said, I enjoy vegetable and grain-based meals very much. They are great on the tummy as well as the budget.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's favorite dishes included hotdogs, baloney, and undercooked chicken. My mother-in-law's favorite dish was pot roast. As I grew older, my favorite foods were all served in fast-food restaurants. I now live somewhat near "Carlos Bakery" (owned by "The Cake Boss") in Hoboken, NJ. I would regularly buy Bear Claws there, but can't because of all the tourists vying to get in front of me. TIP: If you can actually get in Carlos Bakery, make sure you leave with a box full of fresh Bear Claws.
My cooking triumphs
I am currently excited about using a pressure cooker.
My cooking tragedies
Happily, I don't have any tragedies, but you never know what Anthony Bourdain would say about my culinary skills. Then again, considering the types of things he eats from street vendors, maybe he'd be really pleased.
