Pressure Cooker Convert Anniversary!

Pressure Cooker Convert is One Year Old!

DSCF8330

Today marks a full year since I became so enamored with my new pressure cooker that I decided I wanted to spread the word by starting my own pressure cooker blog!

And I must say it’s been a lot of fun, but I have found that running a cooking blog is much more difficult than doing a bicycle blog, which I had previously done.

I think I have made some improvements in recipe writing since I started, and hopefully will continue to improve. And with any luck, maybe eventually I will be able to take a photo of ingredients without forgetting to include something (baby steps).

And I still have a lot of work to do to get this blog where I would like it to be. My goal is to eventually post twice a week. The issue with that is that I don’t think I would be able to come up with two brand new recipes each week.

I am trying to come up with other useful pressure cooker information to post, besides just recipes. The thing is that other people have already posted definitive versions of things such as timing charts, etc., so for me to post similar information would just be redundant. In fact, I am always referring people to the information contained on hippressurecooking .com, which probably has anything you would ever want to know about cooking times, equipment, etc.

I have already made the decision to include some non-pressure cooker side dish recipes if it is for something that complements the pressure cooker main dish. I think I will also start adding some reviews (fully biased, of course) of the equipment that I use, so that I might help others with making their decisions when purchasing a pressure cooker.

I haven’t been posting nearly as often as I would like, due to a couple other projects going on that I have been fighting for my time.

A few months back, someone made the suggestion that I should record a lot of the songs that I wrote back in my rock and roll days that never got recorded, and at the time it sounded like a good idea. But, being me, what started out as a plan to do an album of simple, acoustic versions of my songs quickly turned into a full-blown Phil Spector meets Brian Wilson style production extravaganza.

If anyone is interested, here are a couple of SoundCloud samples of what I’ve been working on:

Just In Case

Tailspin

Besides this, in order to support my recording habit, I am trying to thin out my Hawaiian shirt collection by selling some of them on eBay.

And if that’s not enough, I apparently “volunteered” to do the art and layout on a quarterly literary magazine without even being present.

Add to that my actual job and I have been pretty busy.

All that being said, I still have plans to increase my posting frequency on this blog and hope to bring you more tasty recipes during the coming year.

I still keep both pressure cookers on my stovetop at all times, and use at least one of them almost every night.

What would you like to see posted on Pressure Cooker Convert in the coming year?

I look forward to hearing from you!

    • Yes, definitely. Sometimes I think of all the money I have spent on mediocre prepared foods from the store when I could have quickly been preparing better meals for less money if I had only known the “secret” (pressure cookers)!

      • I think about the money, too, but I also think about all the time (and muscle) I spent cutting pork shoulder up into 1″ cubes so it’d only take 1 1/4 – 1 1/2 hrs to cook the pork. Such a lot of hard work I could easily have avoided! ;D

  1. Congrats on your one-year anniversary. I love my cooker, have for years. As a trained chef who now cooks (and cans) only at home, now, I salute your efforts to spread the joy (and very prettily, too) about the technological marvel we call the pressure cooker. Cheers!
