More About the Author
As a young girl she loved red peppers so her mother grew them for her. Unfortunately they turned out to be hot peppers and although they made her sick, she still eats red ripe, both sweet and hot, peppers to this day. Her mother didn't need to ask her to eat her vegetables, as she has always been a vegetable lover.
Her interest in nutrition began when she was in high school and continued throughout school, even as she got a degree in business. When she realized that her father's dream for her to go to law school didn't speak to her heart, she changed course and got a Master's Degree in Dietetics and Nutrition. Her real love was the food part of nutrition. To that end she has been teaching cooking for more than 25 years.

The book starts with her history with pressure cookers and then moves into the history of pressure cookers, and finally asks the age old question: what's the difference between a pressure cooker and a slow cooker other then the speed anyhow. (for me, it's that I can realize I haven't gotten my act together for dinner until 4 or 5 rather then preplanning at 8am. Plus, I like the fresher flavors of the pressure cooker...but you're not reading this review for my opinons of pressure cooking)
So, I love how Jill then explains what pressure cooker to buy. We are a 3 person family who don't eat a lot of volume which is very different then the family of four next door with two very hungry teenage boys.
So far, I love her recipe for oatmeal, her guidelines for beans and rice. I personally think my brown rice tastes better in the pressure cooker, oh sorry, i'm going off on how wonderful they are again.
Her recipe for Polenta Stuffed Peppers were divine. I love making them and it's so simple. And her recipe for potato salad & vegetable stews...although I confess to adding meat into them rather than tofu...anyway, this book will inspire you as well as be a good resource if you're working on meatless monday. You won't be hungry.
I've been joined at the hip with my pressure cooker, a long time healthy habit, for years. So much so that I have been using it in certain ways for certain purposes, remaining largely in the dark about all the delicious and simple opportunities I'd been missing out on - until Jill pointed them out with such obvious expertise.
Thanks to Jill's book I now have a new list of creative ways to implement my pressure cooker. And I learned a lot more about pressure cooking - so now I know a whole lot more about my old friend.
In The New Fast Food, you'll find what to look for if you are in the market for a new pressure cooker, how to cake for it once you get it (or to treat your old one with more respect!).
Basic guidelines, cooking grains, breakfasts, beans, vegetables, lunch and dinner recipes, unique vegetable dishes and main courses, potatoes, soups, stews, desserts - it's all in there.
