Pressure cooker, OTOH- no problem! I can have dinner on the table in half an hour most nights. I have two awesome cookbooks I use all the time: Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure and Cooking Under Pressure by Lorna J. Sass. She's an awesome cookbook writer- every single thing I've made with her recipes is delicious.
Doodlebugsmom- what's the trick to making rice? I scorch it most of the time, unless it's risotto. I've been thinking about trying to find a ceramic dish to fit insode the cooker to see if that would help.
i love doing beets in the pressure cooker! fast and basic but yummy
ok now i'm motivated to get the cookbook out and make a shopping list!

One question, we got an electic model and it takes a while to heat up (like 12 minutes this morning for the oats) is this normal?
I'm glad I stumbled on to this thread, I posted a few months ago right after we got ours asking for veggie recipes & no one replied I figured maybe people weren't using them.
plus a big ol' page of links...
If you have an extension service in your area, they could probably give you advice (or may even have pamphlets) on pressure canning. Do you have one of those great big hurkin' pots that you could bathe a dog in or is it more like a sauce pot size? It might be unwieldy to cook in a canner (unless you're really cooking for a crowd!) but I have a pressure canner too, and I really appreciate it in August when I'm trying to get through 100 pounds of tomatoes without dying of heat exhaustion!
More ideas please
-Guess the thing that scares me is I don't know when to start timing; ie. when it boils or when the steam whistle blows.:
Sometimes we smoke a turkey on the bbq and make stock from that carcass- it's phenomenal; esp. when you use it as the liquid for cooking beans.
