Pressure Cooker- It Just Gets Better, Chicken Biryani.

To be honest, when I got my pressure cooker I didn’t think I would use it half as much as I do. I love it. When the day comes that the kitchen gets revamped we will live off pressure cooker meals. We cook all sorts in it and it is great. So much more taste than slow cooker meals. There is still a bit of faffing around but once that lid is on and it is doing its thing, there is freedom.


Currently, our favourite thing to cook is Indian Food. I am following the recipes of another blogger, Two Sleevers. She has a great FB group where everyone is very friendly and full of advice. For a while there I was just an observer but I bought the book and it is my most used recipe book. I used it just tonight.


Our dinner this evening was a very good chicken biryani from Two Sleevers book. It didn’t look much, it was marvellous and full of taste. The only things I changed were sneaking in a few frozen mixed vegetables right at the end and using chicken breasts. It was a really decent dinner.

If you are sitting on the fence about getting a pressure cooker, I say do it. You can email me and ask anything. I have a Sunbeam Avia which was on sale at JBHIFI a while ago.

Farrah’s Mexican Meal Kits- Ditch The Imported Mexican & Go Local.


This is not a sponsored post, this is me sharing my new find.

Sometimes you just have to buy something purely because it is on offer, that was how we first tried Farrah’s Mexican Meal Kits. Now we get them everytime we see them down to $5 a kit. They are a pantry staple and delicious. We wouldn’t go back to that other worldwide brand. They are made in NZ, not that far from us, in Upper Hutt.


Tonight we had Enchiladas and they were delicious. I did 6 enchiladas in total as there are only 3 of us. I am going to use the two remaining wraps for my lunch tomorrow.

If you see the kits, I seriously recommend stocking up. You will be pleasantly surprised. Even the teen enjoyed the meal and didn’t complain.
