Happy New Year from Pressure Cooker Convert!

My Resolutions and Whatnot For The Coming Year

Another year has passed, so it’s time once again to look ahead to the new year, and make promises (hopefully not empty ones) for the upcoming twelve months on Pressure Cooker Convert.

One promising thing I have noticed in my own anecdotal evidence is that it seems that this pressure cooker thing is catching on! I have noticed an increase in traffic to this site, and I would bet that all pressure cooker sites have experienced the same thing.

Again basing my facts on my own totally unscientific research, I am guessing that many folks received a shiny new pressure cooker for the holidays and are looking for recipes to inaugurate what will soon become their favorite appliance. If so, hopefully you will find something here to break in that new toy!

Once again, New Year’s Day was the highest traffic day of the year on my site, mainly for my Black-eyed Pea recipe. If any of you tried it, I hope it turned out well and you enjoyed it. Growing up, I figured the whole black-eyed peas on New Year’s day was some obscure superstition that only my mother knew about, but judging by how many people end up on this blog after searching for “black eyed pea recipes”, I was apparently very wrong about that.

And once again, I promise to post on a more regular basis this year. After finally wrapping up a couple other projects I had been working on, I should have more time to concentrate on the important things, like pressure cooking, of course!

I have also noticed that the majority of people new to pressure cooking seem to be getting electric pressure cookers. Given this information, I think that this is the year that I am going to break down and add an electric cooker to my stable (Trying to decide between this one and this one). This way, I will be able to better answer the inquiries I get about how to adapt my recipes to an electric pressure cooker.

I already have a couple recipes in the pipeline for the beginning of the year.

For Christmas Day, I made Hungarian Goulash (pictured at top), which was one of the tastiest things I have ever made in my pressure cooker! Unfortunately, with everything that was going on over the holidays, I didn’t have the time to take step-by-step photos as I was making it, so I will have to make it again so that I can feature it on this blog (I know, it’s a tough job, but I can power through it).

I also have a Chili recipe that I will have up soon, which my wife seems to think is one of the best things I have ever made (and it is a very quick, weekday night meal to boot).

Did you receive a new pressure cooker over the holidays? If so, I would be interested in hearing which one you got, and how you are liking it so far. Let me know in the comments section.

Stay tuned for all this and more, and Happy New Year to all!

  1. I have an Instantpot duo and gave one son and one daughter the blue tooth enabled versions of the Instantpot. All three of us are super happy pressure cookers. Looking forward to more recipes and tips.

    • Shirley, your children must have been very good to deserve such nice gifts! I just ordered the Duo yesterday. I came close to getting the blue tooth version, but since I have an Android phone and that app won’t be out until March, I decided to get the Duo.

  2. humm! those two side dishes look pretty good too!! I would like to see a couple of side recipe(s) for those too if you get the time
