My birthday was last Saturday. I had a fantastic weekend of family, shopping and great meals. Believe it or not, my favorite gift was this pressure cooker, which is a gift from my awesome husband. It may not seem romantic, but I'm so happy.
I've been considering adding a pressure cooker to my kitchen since Christmas, but I wasn't sure how to use one or if it was worth the investment. After doing some research I decided to go ahead and experiment with pressure cooking. I opted for a stand-alone model, which is safer than the stove top version. I'm looking forward to making beans in minutes, not hours and to cooking a pork shoulder in under an hour, instead of all day in my slow cooker.
I'll do a full birthday review later this week and I'll also give you the lowdown on my pressure cooking experience as soon as I use it. Am I the only person who gets excited about new kitchen toys?
P.S. Want your very own pressure cooker? Here's a link to mine:
