I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday weekend! I’ve had a busy couple of weeks and I’m hoping it will calm down soon once the big 2012 comes around the corner or I’m going to become one of those headless chickens you see that wants to cross the road!!! Does anyone have any good [...]
This seafood recipe is amaaaay-ZING! I tweaked it a bit but it’s got some heavenly flavors that’s going to dance in your mouth! I love seafood. It always reminds me of traveling and vacationing by the beautiful oceans of our planet. This recipe is completely pescatarian. It’s also fast and super easy, and perfect for [...]
This is going to be a super duper quicky. In other words, it’s a recipe that does not demand a whole lot of attention. You throw everything together into a pot and set it and forget it. (Like I did. I literally cooked it, went and took a nap and when I woke up, it [...]
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, guess what I am going to “semi” cook in the pressure cooker this week? Come on! GUESS! Oh come on, you’re not even trying! Ok, give up? I’m going to make TURKEY!!! (Oops, I gave it away somehow, didn’t I?) Now you’re probably wondering how the heck am I going [...]
I’ve had pumpkin pie on my mind ever since November started. But I wanted to make something in my pressure cooker instead of baking something in the oven. So cheesecake in the pressure cooker sounded easy enough. I did a bit of research on google and found a pretty decent recipe that I tweaked and [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
