The Pressure Cooker Convert Poll

Since we have been going through a heatwave here for a couple weeks, my pressure cooker recipes have slowed down a bit, but I have been working behind the scenes (behind the scenes=at the beach!). I’ve been trying to think of ways to improve my site without straying too far from the theme of the blog.

Keeping that in mind, I just wanted to throw something out there to see what others might think. Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of posting some recipes for some of the side dishes that I have shown, side dishes that may not use the pressure cooker such as the Bacon Cole Slaw with Homemade Mayo that I showed in my recent post on Pressure Cooker Pulled Turkey. Now, I don’t want to go too far beyond the scope of this blog, which, of course, is pressure cooking. But is including side dishes that pair well with the pressure cooker recipes too far out of bounds?

So I pose this question: Would you like to see some of these recipes included on this blog to accompany the pressure cooker recipes, or would you prefer that only pressure cooker recipes appear on this blog?

I would very much appreciate any and all comments you might have.

  1. Sounds like a good idea to me. I’m always looking at all kinds of recipes, and I think I would make that good looking slaw with a pot of pulled turkey or pork. I would do that. Yep.

    • Thanks, Janet. I appreciate your comment. I don’t want to stray too far from my basic concept of a pressure cooking blog, but there are times when I photograph an entree with a side dish next to it and think “Well, maybe some people would like the recipe for that, also.”

  2. In a word…yes. Yes I would like to see recipes. Like you, I think of a recipe as a starting point. Add, subtract after you have made it once. I like to write on my recipes or in cookbooks…things like cut salt, add more….

    Perfect pressure cooker time right now. Who wants to stand in front of a hot stove cooking?

    • Thanks for your reply, Bob. I agree about it being good pressure cooker time. It’s fast, you keep the heat low once the pressure is up so things don’t heat up so much. For those of us who don’t have access to an outdoor grill, it is the way to go.

  3. I would also like to have your side dish recipes you have go along with your pressure cooker recipes. I use my pressure cooker all the time as we are living on our boat so always looking for good recipes. Things look good so far. Love your writing tone.

    • Thanks for weighing in, Lorraine. Yes, I think I will include some of the side dishes occasionally, especially when it is something that goes particularly well with the pressure-cooked dish.

    • Gary, I have plans to start adding side dishes to the blog. I’m still a little apprehensive about adding “non-pressure-cooker” recipes to the blog, but all of the comments I have received have been positive, so I just need to start doing it. Thanks for your comment.
