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!!!

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.)

In preparation for the Chinese New Year that’s coming up this week on February 4th, 2011, I have decided to make some Taiwanese Niu Row Mein (Taiwanese Beef & Noodles).  This will be our fifth recipe for the International Pressure Cooking theme.

 

I am Chinese.  Born in Taiwan, but raised in the U.S.  And with the new Lunar year starting this week, there’s going to be lots of cooking, eating, cleaning and cooking some more.  Although Beef & Noodles aren’t really considered a traditional New Years dish, it’s still got noodles in it, and noodles signify longevity in the Chinese culture.  Which means, no cutting of the noodles when you eat it, or else it will cut your life short.  Which also means, when you see Chinese people eating noodles, there’s always a lot of noisy slurping.  See, now it all makes sense!  Okay, that’s all just silly superstition anyway.  To learn more about the Chinese New Year and the special foods that are prepared and the history, click here.

I’ve been a little busy lately and haven’t found a lot of time to cook at home. We’ve been eating out mostly.  Which is bad, bad, bad!!!  Bad for the figure, and bad for the pocket book.

Any who, I finally found a little time to cook something up in the pressure cooker that falls under the International Pressure Cooking theme.  So this will be our fourth recipe for our little adventure.  It’s actually a super duper fast and easy one.

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.
