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.

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!

Sooooo………this post is sort of unrelated to my whole International Pressure Cooking Adventure.  I just got excited and wanted to share and post about it.  So it’s kind of an impromptu post.
I just recently got introduced to Pepper Jelly.  Some of you may be like me and don’t have a clue what Pepper Jelly is.  Well, that’s what Google is for!  Just kidding!  But I’m sure there are lots of people who already know what it is and use it regularly.  So bare with us poor folks who have been deprived for so long.

I know Christmas is coming up.  And I should be thinking about posting Christmas-y types of recipes.  But I like to step out of the box usually.  I tend to do things a bit out of the “normal” spectrum.  😛  I’m just strange that way.  So I wanted to go a different route for this lovely holiday season…..and all the way into the new 2011 year as well.

I used to looooove cooking in a slowcooker.   I used to collect recipe books that you normally found in the check-out lines at the market during the Autumn season.  Slow cook this,  slow cook that.  Everything looked so delicious and divine.  My friends even chipped in together to buy me a slow cooker for a present one year, back when I first got out of high school.  That was close to 15 years ago.  And my slow cooker was a pretty nice basic model that I used for years and years.  And I even moved it with me when I moved out on my own into my own new house a couple of years ago.

I brought home a digital 8qt. pressure cooker sometime in 2009.  And I’ve been obsessed with it since.  Come on, I even gave it a name!  I named her Peggy!!!  Yes, it’s a she!!!

I don’t know what the heck I was doing before a pressure cooker came into my life.  Cooking before a pressure cooker was just uneventful.  But cooking after a pressure cooker has just been mouth-watering and tasty!!!

I’ve always been afraid of pressure cookers.  I thought people were crazy to want to use one and risk the chance of having food blow up in their kitchen, sending red staining sauces onto their ceilings.  I’ve heard loads of horror stories from friends, relatives and neighbors.  But that was back in the dark ages, when people used old-fashioned stove-top pressure cookers that had an annoying rattling valve on the lid.  And these old-fashioned models always had gauges that you had to constantly mess with.  No sir, I don’t like it!

My pressure cooker is 100% digital and automatic.  I pretty much set it and forget it.  Except for the part where I turn the valve to exhaust the hot pressure, that’s my favorite part!  Choo-choo!!!  I decided that since I was so in love with my digital pressure cooker, I just had to share the love with other cooks as well.  I mean, it made cooking just so much easier, quicker and tastier!  Who wouldn’t want to bask in all the lovely goodness?

So I decided to start a blog.  A blog about cooking with my pressure cooker, including recipes and my oh-so-fabulously-amateur photos!  Enjoy!!!
