Pressure Cooker Chili
A couple of months ago we were contacted by a cookware manufacturing company by the name of Magefesa. They wanted to know if we would try out their cookware and then report on it on this blog. We were delighted to do so. They sent us a complete set of cookware, 2 frittata pans and a pressure cooker. Our first post was here. We used the frittata pans and the covered pots to make this meal. We enjoyed using them and continue to use them almost every day. (P.S. They have some great recipes to try here. They also have all kinds of informative videos with tips about how to use the pressure cooker, frittata pans, cooking tips, etc. Check it out!)
We really wanted to try out the Pressure Cooker but Yes!Chef! had never used one before and we wanted to find a recipe that would showcase the cooker. Yes!Chef! would suggest things like beans (of which I am not a big fan), or other food items that take a long time to cook conventionally, but would work well in the PC (Pressure Cooker). We searched around the internet, but nothing seemed right. And worse, all the PC recipes we found seemed more suited to cold weather and it was still pretty warm out.

Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream with Hot Fudge Sauce
We all scream for ice cream, is how that saying is supposed to go. However, I am now 1 for 3 as far as ice cream goes (1 win to 2 losses). So, now every time I tell my fam that I’m thinking about making ice cream, I think they all do a silent scream.
Last night we had a few people over for dinner and Yes! Chef! made his almost famous spaghetti and meatballs. I thought it would be fun to have homemade breadsticks, so I found this recipe from Food Network: Almost Famous Breadsticks. Yes! Chef! thought it was a grand idea, but he didn’t understand that just because I found the recipe doesn’t mean that I wanted to make the recipe. His first clue was when he asked me how much time I needed to make the bread and I just looked at him blankly.
