About the Author

My name is Maria Holmes and I love to cook and eat fine tasting food that's good for you. There are few things as satisfying as sitting down to a homemade meal with those you love. I am by no means a professional chef, but I would like to think that I'm a good home cook. I especially love to create delicious meals that are easy to prepare and made with a minimum of fuss. I believe that if it takes too long to prepare, then it better be worth it! My interest in cooking came to me while I was working as a waitress in a small local café. I loved everything about it ... the amazing smells of simmering soup and freshly baked bread, the spicy aroma of a healthy bowl of gumbo, and the melt in your mouth goodness of an apple pie that just came out of the oven. The art of baking and cooking captivated my soul. My Incurable "Disease" But my newly found love for cooking came at a cost. I have developed a severe (but non-life-threatening) disease called "Low-Resistance-to-Yummy-Recipes-Syndrome" (a.k.a Cookbookitis). One of the symptoms of this disease is the complete inability to resist collecting cookbooks, magazines with recipes, even those little brand name mini-cookbooks positioned oh-so-temptingly next to grocery store checkout lanes. For years I tried to get around this by doing most of my major grocery shopping at Costco. But guess what? Costco started selling cookbooks and now my collection continues to grow. I'm slightly embarrassed to say that I have at least 500, maybe more, cookbooks (now I did say it's a disease!). I am going to try to inventory my collection of cookbooks soon. I'll let you know how many I have when I finally catalogue and classify all of them. With soooooo many cookbooks, I am always trying to find the best foods to feed my family. I am passionate about only serving my family meals that will strengthen, grow, and energize them. I have been reading my many cookbooks and started thinking about creating my own cookbooks and sharing my many creations with other avid home cooks. There is always so much to learn! You will notice that I try to keep my cooking style clean and simple. I know that the more simple I keep it, the more likely I'm going to succeed in consistently preparing beautiful and tasty meals. It's been a journey of learning and experimenting in the kitchen, but one that I've greatly enjoyed. I hope that my cookbooks will help you in your journey as well!

This is a cookbook tailor-made for people who want to use a pressure cooker. The author provides detailed instructions on how to use a pressure cooker and then gives lots of recipes for appetizers; soups; entrees and salads; beans and grains; desserts; and stocks, sauces and condiments. The recipes are clear and easy to follow. I also like that she provides the serving size and cooking time for each recipe. She took great care with this book, and I'm glad I bought it.

Maria Holmes has a knack for coming up with great recipes and presenting them in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. This book has given me all kinds of new ideas for meals, desserts and appetizers to make in my pressure cooker. She includes a nice variety of recipes in the categories of Appetizers, Soups, Entrees and Salads, Beans and Grains, Desserts, and Stocks, Sauces and Condiments. Some of my favorites are Warm Lemon Lentil Salad. Barley Rissoto Primavera, Biryani, and Thai Green Curry and Coconut Soup. This book is vegetation and there are some recipes that include dairy products but vegan substitutes could be used. (She doesn't give the substitutions but if you cook a lot of vegan meals you probably already know them.)

I think the only thing I do differently is that I don't usually plan far enough ahead to soak my beans so I use dry unsoaked beans. After all, that's one of the beauties of having a pressure cooker. I do admit that unsoaked beans are more likely to give you gas but if you eat a lot of beans you've probably built up somewhat of a tolerance. So while I agree with her suggestion that you soak them, it's certainly possible to start off with dried beans and just pressure cook them about 5 - 10 additional minutes.

I love having cookbooks on my Kindle which is how I purchased this one. It's easy to stand my Kindle up on the kitchen counter and follow along while I'm preparing a dish. And I'm running out of space to store cookbooks!

These are the pressure cookers I use:

You don't need to go any further after purchasing a book like this . All the vegetables you can think of are mentioned in here.
From entrees to soups to main meals ....yes and even something to eat after wards, desserts!!

You will learn to use beans and grains along with making many sauces as well .
All the ingredients and instructions you will ever need and by using a pressure cooker the length of time is reduced for cooking your recipe; and its prepared and ready to serve in no time .

I had a pressure cooker as a young bride because my mother had one. After an explosion the sprayed spinach over my ceiling, I threw it out. If I'd had this book I would have known how to use it properly and after looking at these recipes, looks like I'm going to have to get another. Thumbs up.

I love this book and now I have every reason that I need to get a pressure cooker. I've wanted one for years, but always felt a little uneasy about getting one until now.

What I really love about Maria Holmes' "Vegetarian Pressure Cooker Recipe Book" is that she begins the book by telling you how to use this valuable piece of kitchen hardware and then gives you a wonderful variety of recipes that could easily keep you engrossed in using it for the next 3 weeks and more. The recipes are great! I DO quite well in the kitchen and just from reading them I can taste them.

I have to add that I'm a true "cookbook junkie," collecting cookbooks like crazy and this one was a wonderful find. Add it to your Kindle library and enjoy all that is has to offer.

BTW, I'm not vegetarian either, but with these recipes, I could be easily swayed more in that direction.

I am new to pressure cooking so I need very clear instructions and easy recipes. This book provided both of these things.
The recipes are easy to make (at least in theory, as I didn't try any recipe yet), and the instructions were straightforward. Yes, some of the recipes were complicated, so I'll probably try those when I have some experience.

I think this is a good addition to my cookbooks collection. Would've loved to see some images of the foods, and for this it loses 1 star. But, all in all, a good book.

This book is easy to follow and would be an asset to the home cook as well as the experanced chef.
I found that I was looking for ways to reduce the time it take for recipes I have made for both my resturant and my catering business. I am giving my pressure cooker a lot more respect

This cookbook has been a real time saver for me. Imagine, creamy rice in 7 minutes! It is often in use in my kitchen, as my daughter gave me a new pressure cooker. The information in this book is tremendously detailed, with a variety of foods for every occasion outlined in a simple fashion. Overall, this book is excellent, and fits my needs. Well written, nice layout, very useable, and yummy recipes.
