Laura is the writer behind HipPressureCooking.com, and is an official Friend of DadCooksDinner. I love her creative take on pressure cooking, and her thorough approach to testing pressure cookers.
Her first cookbook, The Everything Healthy Pressure Cooker Cookbook, came out a few months back, and was kind enough to send me a copy. So we're having a giveaway!
*Laura says that this was a work-for-hire book, and the real Hip Pressure Cooking cookbook is scheduled for 2014.
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment (in the giveaway post on my blog, DadCooksDinner.com) with your favorite pressure cooker story. After you leave the comment, Laura asks that you head over to her website, HipPressureCooking.com, and sign up for her email newsletter.
To get us started, here is...
My family pressure cooker story
This story is from my aunt, who shared it with me after she read one of my pressure cooker recipes.
My grandmother Mim was at church with the rest of the family. They had just sat down in the pew when she jumped out of her seat and hurried out of the church without saying a word.
Granddad, my aunts, and my uncle were looking back and forth at each other, wondering what was going on. She came back twenty minutes later and sat down as if nothing happened. They were all curious, but she just shushed them when they tried to ask her questions - it was in the middle of mass after all.
When the service was over, she confessed. In the rush to get everyone out the door for church, she forgot to turn off the burner under the pressure cooker. She remembered right after she sat down - there was a bomb ticking in her kitchen. Luckily, she got home to find the pressure valves hissing away, letting steam escape the cooker. She took a deep breath, turned off the burner, and went back to church.
The Fine Print:
One entry per person, and please make sure there is some way I can get in touch with you through the comment. (In other words...no anonymous comments, unless you identify yourself in the text of the comment.) The comment has to be in this post on DadCooksDinner.com; emails, entries on my Facebook page, retweets, and notes delivered by two large gentlemen who don't want any "accidents" to happen will not be considered for the drawing. Only entries from North America will be accepted.
Entries will be closed at 12PM EST on Sunday, January 13th, and I will randomly select a winner. The winner will be announced Sunday. If I am unable to contact the winner by Wednesday the 16th, I will pick a new winner. Good luck!
