    Re: USCHO Cooks: Are you our Top Chef?

    Made Swedish Pancakes this morning. 4 batches. lilnsl les ate 10 so much for having a lot of left overs, there was less than a third left. This was after having pre-breakfast of English muffings and a huge bowl of yogurt. His bud is supposed to come up next week. I thought making 4 batches would be enough but.... maybe not. Back up plan.

    Received an Instant Pot as a gift. Slightly intimidated. I did the test run with steamed water and no one died, though.

    Half Price Books has coupons this weekend, so I might see if they have some cookbooks. I did find a good beginner recipe online (Chicken and Brown Rice), so will probably try that today. Anyone have tips or tried-and-true recipes?

    We just received one of those at my fiancée's bridal shower, but it also doubles as a slow cooker. We've yet to use it.

    I became part of the Instant Pot cult. Absolutely love it. Do not be intimidated, it for the most part is pretty easy.

    This is the book we have used. Lots of easy stuff. Most recipes we have tried are very good. Do not just do rice or noodles, even the complicated recipes are pretty reasonable to try.

    Isn’t it just an expensive crock pot with some doodads and gizmos?

    Out of ignorance, why would it be intimidating?

    Well, for one, mine has 18 buttons on it.

    And it's mostly a pressure cooker, which I've never used.

    Crockpots don't have pressure locked lids. If you use the pressure cooker option, a 5-hr crockpot cook time becomes a 90 minute cook time. And rice is done in about 3 minutes.

    Personally, I'm intrigued just at the prospect of homemade broth and/or stock becoming a modest 3-hour affair, instead of an all-day ordeal.

    For the most part they can be found for around 100 buck so nothing that expensive. I think we use ours for soup/broth more than other things but most of the stuff I have tried in it comes out pretty good, fairly easy, with minimal cleanup.

    It is really nice to saute and pressure cook in the same thing...only one dish needs to be cleaned.

    People like them for yogurt also especially if you ferment the yogurt for 24 hour(consumes all the lactose, huge amount of probiotics)
