"Our hot water system also leaked but was on the ground so would suggest turning the water and power  off  if going away for extended period plus they would have had a big water bill."

Pressure Cooker Cooking

I wanted to start a group for this.  Of course, I do soups, stews, rice etc in a pressure cooker.  I found so many more recipes that need to be shared.  Cheese cake!  Bone broth (expected that one).  Mac and cheese.  Mozzarella cheese! Ribs - I've done that a few times now - class recipe. Yoghurt, creme brulee, potato salad...  it's a nice piece of equipment. See More

My wife and myself attended this cooking session. There were only 12 people attending, usually about 20. We prepared and cooked recipes from 5 countries, Malaysia, Peru, Norway, Italy, and Turkey.
