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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
¡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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
