Pressure Cooker Chicken and Rice

This is a modified version of a recipe from Hip Pressure Cooking that I make quite frequently. It’s pretty fast and very cheap. I recommend an Instant Pot IP-DUO80 if you don’t have a pressure cooker. You can probably only fit 8 legs in a 6-quart cooker, but an 8 quart should hold 12. Ingredients 1 T olive oil 1 onion, chopped 1 T tomato paste 1 clove garlic, minced 1 bay leaf 1.

Mr. Snausage II

This recipe is a common quick dinner for us. It’s quite easy if you have an electric pressure cooker. It’s adapted from a recipe from Cooks Illustrated. You can use any sort of non-strand pasta for this, like shells, ziti, rigatoni, etc. Spaghetti and strand pasta will create a disaster. Why Mr. Snausage II? Mr. Snausage I was the older recipe I used, but this one is easier. I’ll post the other one eventually.

Nana's Pancakes

This is the family recipe we’ve been using since I was a child. This will make approximately 6 large pancackes, or 12 small ones. Nana used to let me eat the butter when my mom wasn’t watching, which I also highly recommend. Note: Do not flip the pancakes more than once. Do not whack them with your spatula. Do not shake the pan around. You just spent a lot of time beating some egg whites so the pancakes are light and fluffy.
