Amidst homeschooling, having a baby earlier this year, and running my creative business, I recently decided to stop eating wheat and sugar. I realize that those things may seem disconnected, but the reality is that not eating wheat and sugar is really time consuming for this already busy lady because it equals my cooking from scratch more.

A lot more.

I’ve been hearing about these electric pressure cookers for the last few years, and I kept saying I would get around to trying one… sometime. But life kind of got in the way. Then my amazing friend Cami and her sister Marci of Tidbits wrote this cookbook… And since I have basically loved everything Cami has ever created, I was so honored that she asked me to take a look at her new book. And so it was time for me to finally try the pressure cooker.

Y’all. This thing is amazing. Fagor was kind enough to send me a multicooker to try, and it has been a game changer for this busy mama. It can brown meat, sauté veggies, slow cook anything (with much better results than my old slow cooker)… AND it can pressure cook things in mere minutes.

I don’t think I realized just how quickly you can cook things in the pressure cooker. In less than 20 minutes, I can cook frozen chicken breasts. In 4 minutes I can cook a pork tenderloin. Seriously.

And the recipe for pork tenderloin from Cami and Marci’s cookbook is literally my family’s new favorite meal. In fact, they’ve loved everything I’ve made from it. We even enjoyed one of her recipes that night I told you about

Her book is full of ideas that meet my new dietary restrictions. So many fresh, whole food options…

And fun new twists on old favorites, like this cauliflower fettuccini alfredo.

And mini fritatas.

So if you’re considering a pressure cooker, I absolutely recommend the Fagor multicooker. I chose the 8qt for my large family

But the 6qt multicooker would be a wonderful option, as well.

And whether you’re new to the pressure cooker or a veteran, be sure to grab a copy of Master the Electric Pressure Cooker.

Or two. Or five. (Think gifts!! 😉 )

  1. I have been wanting an electric pressure cooker for so long, I ‘m doing it!!!

    Also, practically No Carb for me for several years, several little ailments have gone away. I am not rigid, I *love* fruitcake at Christmas and candy corn at Halloween. And Cadbury eggs at Easter. So I make allowances for myself.

  2. What accessories do/did you find the most useful with this multi-cooker? I’ve been eyeing them forever and just want to make sure I am successful with it (don’t want something that sits on the shelf to colelct dust 🙂

    1. I’ve actually only used the little egg racks (which I actually haven’t used for eggs, just as a stand to put ramekins on), but I asked for the steamer basket for Christmas, so I’m hoping to try that soon. 😉

  3. We can’t live without our tfal pressure cooker! We cook meals at least once per week using it. My husband used the pressure cooker to cook pork ribs the other day and it was absolutely divine. So juicy and falling off the bone!
