PicOfTheWeek: Baby Potatoes

I bought a whole New York Strip Loin at my local grocery store yesterday – hey, it was Acme Meat Sale day, I had to load up. What do I have with my steak? Potatoes, of course. (I hope my plan to grill the steaks holds up – 30+mph winds are blowing right now. The wind is supposed to settle down around suppertime. Wish me luck…) Recipe: Pressure Cooker Baby Potatoes with Butter and Parsley What do you think? Questions? Other ideas? Leave them in the comments section below. Related Posts Enjoyed this post?

Merry Christmas 2018

PicOfTheWeek: Whisking Cheesecake

Working on a cheesecake recipe this week, and my wife is simultaneously making Christmas cookies. She has first dibs on the stand mixer, so I am hand-whisking my cheesecake. And, let me tell you, hand-whisking to remove all the lumps from cream cheese is a lot of work… Cheesecake recipes Here are a few recipes to keep you entertained until I get this one posted: Instant Pot Caramel Apple Cheesecake Pressure Cooker Strawberry Cheesecake Pressure Cooker Oreo Cheesecake

PicOfTheWeek: Hard Boiled

A batch of Instant Pot hard-boiled eggs so I can work on my traditional Deviled Eggs recipe. I think I’ve got the flavors down, so it should be coming this week. (If you can’t wait, here is my Wasabi deviled eggs recipe.) What do you think? Questions? Other ideas? Leave them in the comments section below.

PicOfTheWeek: Frozen Assets Noodle Soup

Did you follow my advice and make a big batch of Turkey Broth after Thanksgiving? I did, and I’ve got a freezer full of broth, just in case I need something…like a batch of Turkey Noodle Soup. (Not shown: last night’s roasted chicken breasts. Soup is great for using up leftovers.) Recipe: Pressure Cooker Day-After-Thanksgiving Turkey Carcass Soup Note: Skip to step 2 (“Sauté the aromatics”), and enjoy!

PicOfTheWeek: Stocking Up

T-Day is on the way, and I’m taking stock. [Ahem. Sorry.] The turkeys are thawing in the fridge, and I’m spending Sunday making a batch of chicken stock – the essential ingredient for gravy (and a pretty important one for stuffing, too.)

PicOfTheWeek: Beans!

Beans ready for a quick soak. I’m quick-soaking the beans – pressure cooking for 1 minute, then letting them sit for 1 hour – to speed up the cooking time. These beans are the base for a minestrone soup, and the rest of the ingredients will overcook if I try to cook unsoaked beans. (Minestrone recipe coming soon…)
