One of my favorite ever purchases, Cuisinart Pressure Cooker:
If you like to cook but don't like to spend a lot of time (or have much time in the first place) in the kitchen...an electric pressure cooker is a must-have! Artichokes done in 8min! I used up the rest of my Door-to-Door Organics vegetables with this meal. My sister makes the pasta for her girls and we tried it a couple of weeks ago and liked it, so I made it last night: brussel sprouts, carrots, zucchini & garlic- salt & peppered and then sauteed in a little olive oil before going into the food processor. Toss with cooked spaghetti & top with parmesan- done! (My sister adds pine nuts but the bag of pine nuts at Costco was $27!! I skipped the pine nuts). It is light and easy.
