Blue Jean Chef: "Comfortable Under Pressure" Cookbook
way too fancy
these recipes are way too fancy for this simple country girl,on tv the recipes sounded very easy however i have never used or heard of the items used in the recipes.sorry
Very nice cookbook
I just received this cookbook and even though it does have some fancy recipes in it there are also your everyday simple recepies as well as charts on how to cook your desired foods in the pressure cooker, I'm excited to try it soon.
Easy to Understand!
I just received my Pressure Cooker and this cookbook. I started reading it before I opened the pressure cooker, and I'm SO glad I bought this fun cookbook! Thanks for the easy to understand book and great directions! I can't wait to get started! This is a MUST have for anyone with a pressure cooker! ENJOY!
I was not happy with the variety of recipes. A lot of them looked alike. There are not many recipes in the whole book that I even thought looked tasty, except for the ones they show on TV.
Just received this today and have read nearly every recipe...my mouth is watering! The recipes are clear and easy to understand, and use easy-to-find ingredients for a basic, down-home style, which I love. There are plenty of pictures, and lots of tips and tricks for pressure cooking. I've been using a pressure cooker for a while now and don't know how I ever managed without one. This cookbook broadens my horizons for dinner ideas! Thank you, Meredith!
Recipes not as expected.
I watched several airings of this cookbook which was featured along with the TSV CooksEssentials 6 qt. Round Digital Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker. It seemed like the recipes were foods my family & I would like and I received the cookbook and I was very excited to look through it, but was very disappointed. I will be returning this cookbook and I might end up returning the pressure cooker as well. I've always wanted one, but I'm hoping I can find recipes to go along with it.
Was surprised that this was a paperback, particularly for the price; however, as I browsed through the book, it has a lot of what look like good, well-written recipes. I expect to get a lot of use out of this book.
The whole family loved the recipes we have cooked so far! I can't wait to try them all! Great cookbook!
I will try less than a dozen of these recipes. I ordered this to go along with the TSV pressure cooker.
Best for new pressure cooker users
Meredith does an excellent job with great recipes for new users. I had trouble figuring out how to use the pressure cooker then bought and read Meredith's book. Now I've made risotto which I have made for years the old Italian way. This is great, dump it in set the cooker and have risotto that is just as good as my own recipe. Much more confidence. Love it.
I purchased this book about a year ago and think the recipes are great. The book is easy to follow and every recipe I have made has turned out perfect. I wish that Meredith would write another pressure cooker cookbook. I also purchased this book as a gift for my daughter. She loves it as well.
Great go-to Book For Pressure Cookers
I'm not sure why so many people are complaining about this book featuring too many ingredients or being "too gourmet." I'm absolutely baffled! This is a fantastic book with fantastic recipes and especially great for the pressure cooking novice. The instructions are detailed and full of tips and tricks. The recipes feature lots of family favorites like sloppy joes, beef brisket, Swedish meatballs and chilis. I especially enjoyed her recipe for farrotto (which is her name for cooking farro like a risotto.)
