Blue Jean Chef: "Comfortable Under Pressure" Cookbook
This is how a cookbook should be. This is my first Meredith cookbook. So many cookbooks have recipes that I would not use for different reasons, be it too complicated or difficult to find ingredients . All of Meredith's recipes are tempting, and I can't wait to try them. She has great pictures, and I look forward to cooking with her book. Also, I enjoy when she is on QVC. She makes everything look easy and she is fun.
am very disappointed that there was no lasagna recipe. The only mac and cheese recipes had the cheese added after cooking, not in the cooking. I would expect that mac and cheese and lasagna recipes would be a given in any chapter that included pasta. While there are some good recipes, leaving these basics out is inexcusable.
Not worth price
I didn't think the recipes were anything worth spending money on a cookbook.
I just got it and have made a couple recipes. They turned out great. I will be making more. Very simple and easy to use.
I am a cook book reader
I rarely cook an exact recipe from a cookbook. I read them & I use them for reference. I keep a well stocked pantry & cook almost everyday. I've had my pressure cooker (4qt) a couple of months. I love it & use it a couple of times a week.
I wanted to try the pasta recipes, Chef demonstrates. I was a bit of a skeptic. I like my pasta al dente. I am happy to say the cook time for pasta is perfect. I had to have a second helping. So Good! So easy! So quick!
(PS- I haven't taken out my slow cooker, since the pressure cooker arrived)
WORST COOKBOOK EVER
I HAD HOPED THAT THIS BOOK WOULD HELP ME UNDERSTAND USING THE PRESSURE COOKER I HAD ORDERED. TODAY I READ IT COVER TO COVER AND THERE WAS NOT ONE RECIPE I COULD USE!!!! I WILL HAVE TO GO GROCERY SHOPPING AND FIND ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE! ALSO THE MANY USES OF HOT PEPPERS,CHILLIES AND SPICES THAT ELDERLY PEOPLE CAN'T EAT! THIS WAS A GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT TO ME AND I WILL PROBABLY SEND BACK THE PRESSURE COOKER ALSO.
Love this Cookbook
I have three pressure cooker cookbooks, and this book is my go-to one. The receipes are very easy to follow. I made a lot of them. They all turned out very good.
I have made 3 recipes from this book and they were all awesome!!!
For Every Cook
For anyone that is considering purchasing a Pressure Cooker or already has one, this is a wonderful tool to not only give you wonderful recipes, but also to help you feel more at ease cooking with your pressure cooker. I truly have enjoyed Meredith through the years, and her cookbook is truly a wonderful addition to my kitchen.
Always watch when Meaidith is cooking
New to pressure cooking. Great tips. Will be trying as many receipts as time allows. Clear instructions.
My daughter and I love cooking thanks to you.
Everything is great. I have a question about time. When I double or triple a recipe, do I change the time?
Just picked up this cookbook and so happy I did. Recipes are prefect and easy. Corn and Potato Chowder is Amazing. Corned Beef and Cabbage Excellent. The Caramel pudding... OH MY!!!! Have tried several of the recipes and have not been disappointed. I can see why David is Happy Dancing regularly! Thanks QVC!
