Southern Cabbage for the Pressure Cooker
I love this recipe on the stove so of course I wanted to try in in the pressure cooker. I skipped the bacon because I didn't have any. I usually add garlic, onions and crushed red pepper to mine though. I only used one cup of chicken broth and it came out without excess liquid which was perfect and just like when it's made on the stove. I don't ever add salt when I am cooking, so when it goes to the table everyone can add their own level of saltiness. I'm happy to make it in the pressure cooker and get rid of the oil when it's made on the stove and then add butter when it's on my plate. Now I can just sprinkle with salt.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
We made this and threw in some carrots because we like carrots in our soups. We browned the hot sausage and onions in the pressure cooker, added the broth, garlic, spinach, potatoes and carrots and cooked on high pressure for 7 minutes. I forgot about the bacon by accident. When the pressure cooker was done, released the pressure and added the light cream (all we had in the house) to it. Absolutely delicious!

Crustless Spinach Quiche
The spinach amount was perfect. I baked them in a Duncan Hines mini loaf pan/brownie pan (each loaf is about 2.5 x 3.75). I love the pan because it's like a muffin pan but there are 8 mini loaves instead. The mini quiches baked up perfectly, not too much spinach at all and they are a great size for breakfast. I doubled the recipe and made it with eggbeaters and light sharp cheese, it made 10 filled to the rim mini loaves that are about 288 calories each and are perfectly filling with just one.
