The following recipe can be found in my New Book!

With a cooking time of three minutes and ingredients that you might already have in your cupboard, this Mediterranean-influenced meal couldn’t be easier.  This dish is delicious served hot or cold, making it a refreshing lunch or dinner recipe served all year round.  Add your favorite toppings- like feta cheese or fresh dill to pump up the flavor.  

#Truth About four years ago, when I made my first recipe in my electric pressure cooker, I left the house with my kids because I was so scared.  Now, my electric pressure cooker is a permanent fixture on my kitchen countertop, and I use it almost every day of the week, sometimes even multiple times a day.   After you get acquainted with your electric pressure cooker, you can make easy, homemade meals for your family while being liberated from your kitchen and using fewer dishes.

This Greek-Inspired Orzo with Tomatoes and Olives is just one of 150 recipes in my new cookbook!  I am so excited about it!  You can pre-order it on Amazon right now!  ( although the release date is 2/2)
