Pressure Cooker Update

I have had a few of you contact me to ask about my pressure cooker desires so I thought an update was in order.  Before getting a pressure cooker and shelling out the cash on a new toy I didn't have to have, I decided to try a few pressure cooker recipes the old fashion way.

I can only say my kids were not fans.  They made sounds, they made faces, they made loud protests.

I was really bummed because I liked the food, as did my husband, but the kids hated it!

I have not given up.  I will overcome the look of disgust and find a group of recipes the kids like.  Until that time, I am without a pressure cooker.  In case you wondered, I will survive.


  1. I try really hard to not end up the short order cook. Where the kids get something different than my husband and me. Sometimes it's impossible. But I'm hoping they won't be afraid of new flavors.

    I hope you find some good recipes! Good luck!

  2. I told my son years ago that I don't wear a paper hat when I'm cooking for a reason. As fashionable as it would be I am NOT a short order cook. (I think the significance was lost on his 2 year old self.) I hold to that, but I have to admit leftover night is great because it allows me to feed everyone their favorite and not have any complaining. Someday when I am rich and famous I will hire someone to listen to the whining for me. be rich!
