Hey everyone!  I am in the process of building a new site for my blog.  We are moving!!!  Moving web hosts that is.  And the site is getting a fresh new look! But still retaining its old sweet charm.  hehe

I know, you’re probably wondering why I’m spending time doing all this web work and not spending time cooking instead!  Argh!!!  And you’re right, I should be cooking more. But seriously, I’ve lost almost 10lbs now and I got to fit into my wedding dress in two more months, you should really see the food I have been eating these days.  Oh the things we do for beauty.  *sigh*

Anyway, I’m super excited about the new site design and all the nifty new plugins I am able to incorporate now.  All with the help of my good friend Mr. GK, who’s a super a duper tech master.  The move is probably going to happen within the week, so don’t be all weirded out when you come back and the site looks different yet oddly familiar.  😛
And also, if you get an email to re-confirm your subscription to the blog in the next few days, just go ahead and confirm it.  It’s the only way we’ve figured out how to move all the original subscribers over to the new site.

Here’s a sneak peek of the new site design.  I hope you like!!!

Closeout Sale!!!

I found out that the manufacturer of my specific brand of pressure cooker is having a big closeout sale on their pressure cookers!  They are selling off a lot of their returned new inventory and reconditioned units on their ebay store.  Seriously, it can’t get any better than this!  I just wanted to share in case anyone was interested in purchasing another pressure cooker or even want to get one as a gift for a friend or family member.  The prices are a crazy deal!!!

Both the 6Qt. and the 8Qt. are available.  I’d hop on this special as soon as possible if I were you!  I don’t think they do this very often.

ELITE PLATINUM CLOSEOUT EBAY STORE

I know I’ve been seriously lagging in new recipe posts lately.  Don’t worry, I haven’t been kidnapped by trolls or anything.  I’ve just taken a break from cooking in the pressure cooker.  I’ve decided to put myself on a pretty strict wedding diet regime, and cooking in the pressure cooker always results in food that I just cannot eat because they way exceed my daily calorie count.  Bah hum bug!!!
So this break will hopefully help me lose the weight that I want, and also to actually allow my cooking imagination to get some down-time.  This way when I am back, I am back in full force!  I hope!  If I do come across any yummy recipes that I just cannot wait to share, I will pop on in here to make a quick post whenever I can.

And you know what, if anyone has made any yummy recipes that they personally want to share, I would love to post up a guest post of your recipe!  That would be a great way to share!  And it’s not necessary to take a ton of photos either.  Keep it simple and sweet and to the point.  Just send me a message via the Contact tab.

Peace out!

I had such a busy and awesome Memorial Day weekend.  I barely had any time to cook.  But I somehow managed to squeeze in a super duper easy-peezy recipe.  It’s super quick, super yummy, and just plain super all around!
Usually, when Summer starts to roll around, I start to cook less.  I’m not sure why either.  I actually dislike hot weather immensely, it makes me feel lethargic and just all-around LAZY.  And this Summer is going to be a crazy one cause I’m going to start my hardcore wedding diet and workout regime!  I won’t be able to cook all the yummy stuff I love to cook and gobble them down like I usually do.  All for the sake of fitting into my wedding dress later this year. Grrrrr………

Okay, you’re probably wondering WHAT THE HECK?  Chinese and Coca-Cola???  That’s an odd combination for a description. I know, I know, but that’s the whole point.  That’s what caught my attention with this particular recipe and I just had to try it so I can say I did.  I love cooking food with an off-the-wall ingredient.  It reminds me of the old fairytale folk story I read a long time ago in grade school.  I’m sure many of you have heard of it.  It’s called STONE SOUP.  The main ingredient was a piece of rock!!!

Have you ever had one of those days when you just totally do NOT want to cook?  Or you’re just so busy, or you’re running late and can’t get home in time to make a meal for your family?  I’m sure you all have.  And usually when that happens, we either run to grab quick take-out, or you somehow talk your husband or boyfriend to cook instead.  Well, this recipe is FOR THE BOYS!  It’s super easy, quick and fool-proof.  Three main ingredients only.  And your man can pat himself on the back and boast that he made a great meal with no help at all!  (Unless your man is a great chef already and knows his way around the kitchen.)

So I am back!  Back from quite a long hiatus.  Sorry about that.  Weekends are so jammed pack with activities these days. Plus the vacation I took last week to Cancun, Mexico took up two whole weekends.  But a vacation was totally worth it and totally necessary!

March and April has been and will be a whirl wind of busy-ness!  I can’t even find time to cook!  AHHHHH!!!  But I can’t really complain, I’ve been so busy mostly because of wedding related stuff and also I’m going on vacation!!!  YAY!

I am dubbing today EXPERIMENTATION DAY!  Pretty much because I haven’t made a basic cheesecake since over 10-years ago and to top it off, I’ve never made it inside a pressure cooker, period!  But I found a recipe online and I just really wanted to try it out because I was so curious about the end result.  Besides, I loooove cheesecake!  I went through 3-4 years of being lactose intolerant and couldn’t have any at all during that time.  But ever since I cured my lactose intolerance a few years ago, it’s yummy in my tummy time!

Spring is officially here.  I love how the purple Lupine grow on the side of the freeway here in Southern California.  All the trees are sprouting their baby leaves and colorful flowers are starting to bloom.  And the weather is mostly, always “just right.”  Except for this weekend, it’s been gloomy and rainy on and off.

It’s that time of year again!  Where the green beer flows abundant and the Leprechauns come out and play.  And you know what these wee folks do?  They collect the exuberant amounts of money that you spend on beer, lagers, and Guiness to fill their pot of gold, that’s what!

Finally, it’s cooking time.

It was like the universe was against me and they just did not want me to make this dish for some reason.  I had it all planned for last weekend but then stuff got side-tracked.  Then I had planned to make it this weekend and I realized I forgot my Canon camera at my office.  DOH!  And THEN I started running a fever on and off this weekend.  I mean COME ON!!!

So this weekend I had originally wanted to post a recipe for a really good Chicken Marsala dish served with Fettuccine pasta.  I had all the ingredients already purchased and planned out.  Then my plan completely flew out the window.

I thought I would venture into the dessert category for this post.  This is actually my first time making any kind of dessert in the pressure cooker.  And yes, it was a success! I’ve also ventured away from my International theme as well.  But this recipe is worth it.  It will wow your family or your guests because it looks all fancy and ooh-la-la, but it’s totally easy and super tasty.  Who would pass up on that?!  It makes you want to get all dressed up in a nice frilly dress if you’re a girl, and maybe the boys will even feel like wearing a tie!  (HA!  Getting a guy to wear a tie is like telling them they’re getting a root canal.)

¡Hola! ¿Cómo están? Did everyone enjoy the Super Bowl?  I know I sure didn’t!  But that’s cause I didn’t watch it.  hehe
So today’s sixth recipe into the International Pressure Cooking theme is Carnitas Tacos.  Si, es mucho bueno!  Ok, I’m pretty sure I’m butchering the Spanish language so I’ll stop now.
(Note:  I won’t be able to post a recipe next week because I will be out of town.  I only have time to cook on the weekends since the rest of the week I have a day job and don’t get home until all the natural light is gone for my photos.)
