Some of you, my dear readers, have told me that you’ve asked for a pressure cooker for Christmas.  I’m so excited for you!  I have over 40 pressure cooker recipes, just for you!

(New to this blog?  Read this FAQ to understand my pressure-cooker adoration:  What’s up with the rice and pressure cooker obsession?)

If you want to start slow, try this really quick soup that I made in my pressure cooker last week –  there’s a good chance you have most of the ingredients on hand!

Tofu, Chickpea, Artichoke and Potato Soup

    I’ve put one on my Amazon wish list, all because of you 🙂 Don’t know if I’ll get it though.

    PS-How did you make your little recipe card looking thing with the recipes above?

      Oh,@google-3d8820330776a726672ec15a6fd53c2f:disqus I hope you get it!

      I use for my recipes – the image above is a screenshot from the recipes section of my blog (using the tag “pressure cooker”)

    How’d you know?? You sold me on the idea. Thanks for all the recipes. Can’t wait to try them. We have a move coming up in 2013 also and the fact that you lived cooking with just the pressure cooker until your household goods arrived convinced me!

      @f68bdd9544f796493fad2c2e91bb12bc:disqus let me know how it goes with the pressure cooker! And let me know if you have any questions when you move – it’s all very fresh in my mind! LOL

      I’m not familiar with this one, Natalie.
