About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian, pressure cooking, very slow cooked pulled pork shoulders (17 hours), sushi, ribeye roast and seafood, especially shrimp marinara.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey and beef roasts on holidays.
My cooking tragedies
There are many, but I get back up, clean my pots and try again. That's the learning process and most fun of cooking. Oh, and seeing happy folks eating and enjoying my efforts.

Perfect Pressure Cooker Pot Roast
MamaShea this is outstanding. Made it to the letter. The meat (shoulder roast) was fall apart tender and the gravy was perfect. I did add carrots and potatoes after 35 min and after reaching steam, cooked another 10 min. Thanks for sharing. This will remain number 1 on my pressure cooker recipes.

Jamie's Minestrone
Outstanding recipe. This will replace all of my Minestrone soup recipes. Made exactly as stated with minor change. Only used 2 cups of tomato sauce and added 1 can diced tomatoes roasted. Increased chicken broth to 3 cups for more juice. I did use wine. Thanks Jamie for taking the time to share. Love it.
