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!

Did you get a pressure cooker this holiday season? What are you going to make first?

    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!

    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 thinking of getting a pressure cooker but don’t know which one to buy. Is this one good?

    • JL

      I’m not familiar with this one, Natalie.
