About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
1. The author uses an electric pressure cooker which has 3 settings for pressure (low, medium & high) I have a stove top cooker with no variable setting. If it included cooking times or some sort of directions for cooking in a stove top cooker it would have been extremely helpful. If you have an electric cooker or variable psi settings this book would work very well for you.
2. The index in the book is so useless it really would have been better if they omitted it altogether. If you're looking for a chicken recipes it simply says chicken and list page numbers. There is no place in the book that you can go to for a full list of recipes.
3. The tables of cooking times would be more helpful if they included the amount of water. The other cookbook I purchased had much better cooking charts.
Overall the recipes I have tried have all been very good and easy to follow. They are very basic recipes without a lot of fussy ingredients, perfect for everyday meals. I like that it includes a good variety of recipes including breakfast as well. Overall I really do enjoy the cookbook a great deal.
Secondly, I am wondering if the author or anyone else tested these recipes. She says to put the vegies in with the meat and cook for an hour. As a result although the meat was cooked, the vegetables were way too soft and mushy. The carrots were almost inedible. (Roast recipes I found in another book suggested putting veggies in at the end so they don't overcook which I think would have been a better instruction.)
Thirdly, the amount of liquid also seemed like too much. It covered the roast entirely making it more like a pot roast than a regular roast. However, unlike a pot roast, the meat was not really as tender as I was expecting. (I wonder if, I cooked the meat for an hour, put in the veggies and cooked for another 10 minutes, this would take care of a couple of the problems?)
I am hoping the desserts, jams and chutneys in this book (the real reason I bought it) are better.

I'm trying to learn how to read this book. It won't let me read any further unless I review this book. I like the format, the recipes seem clear, and many I will use. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sammy

I really like these recipes. The only drawback is the book is printed in a light green and I find it hard to see the print with my eyes. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Kelly Carpenter
