Recipe: Pressure Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches
Regional foods are the heart of American cuisine, but there’s one problem with them: When you move, you crave them. Take Italian beef sandwiches. As someone who grew up in New York, I’d never heard of this meaty sandwich until I moved to the Midwest. During day trips to Chicago, I’d see signs for Italian beef. Well, I am Italian. I like beef. Clearly this was a sandwich I needed to try. The first bite won me over.

Why I Gave Up My Slow Cooker for the Instant Pot
The first time I used my electric pressure cooker, I hit the start button and ran out of the room. Of course I’d read that modern pressure cookers were perfectly safe when used correctly — fear, however, allows no room for logic. My grandmother had once tried pressure-cooking, and I grew up listening to her tell the story of scrubbing tomato sauce off the ceiling after the ill-fated attempt. So I was fairly certain that my pressure cooker would malfunction.

How To Make Chicken Tikka Masala in the Electric Pressure Cooker
There’s no need to order chicken tikka masala takeout when you can make it lightning-fast in the pressure cooker. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs bring lots of flavor and tenderness to this recipe. Before cutting the thighs into pieces, remove any excess fat. You want the chicken pieces to be bite-sized, so aim for a cut about 1 1/2 inches. Traditional chicken tikka masala recipes start with marinating the chicken in a yogurt sauce.

Thankfully, with the right flour blend and a few simple techniques, you’ll quickly master a pie crust that’s both delicious and easy to make. Although there are a bevy of gluten-free premixed flour blends and pie crust mixes on the market, I recommend using a blend of millet flour and tapioca starch.

The One-Stop Thanksgiving Shopping Guide: Aldi
If you’ve never been to Aldi, it might surprise you that it’s a great place to shop for Thanksgiving. I understand. Before I started shopping at Aldi, I imagined they sold subpar food; something akin to what you’d find at a supersized convenience store. How wrong I was. Aldi carries a nice selection of produce, dairy, and other kitchen essentials at low prices. They even offer a small line of organics and gluten-free foods.

10 Important Tips for Shopping at Aldi for Thanksgiving and Beyond
If you’re considering Aldi as a place to do some or even all of your Thanksgiving shopping, there are a few key elements you need to be aware of. We covered some tips in our first look at Aldi, but when it comes to a big shop, there are even more details to know about. Here are 10 important tips to keep in mind. Since Aldi stocks a limited inventory, do your Thanksgiving shopping early. If your schedule allows, plan to shop when the store opens.

10 Pro Tips from the Woman Who Wrote the Book on Gluten-Free Baking
When I began baking without gluten, way back in 1998, the words “gluten-free” caused confusion for most folks. I’d get questions all the time, “What’s gluten?” “Is that, like, low-carb?” Now the term “gluten-free” is printed on most restaurant menus and emblazoned on packages all up and down grocery store aisles.

The Best Gluten-Free Flours for All Your Baking Needs
Once upon a time, if you went to the grocery store for gluten-free flour, you didn’t find much. Then things changed. Now, flour choices for gluten-free bakers can feel overwhelming. One key thing to know: Because no single gluten-free flour or starch behaves just like wheat flour, using a blend gives you the best results when ditching the wheat. But which blend is best? It depends on what you want to bake. And I should know; I’m the blogger behind Gluten-Free Baking.

7 Things I Never Do When Making Homemade Pizza
I’m not sure when I turned into such a pizza fanatic, but when you’re willing to drive six hours roundtrip to eat at a pizza place you read about online and put down several hundred dollars for an outdoor pizza oven, you’ve got to admit to yourself that pizza isn’t just something you enjoy eating on Friday night — it’s your passion. For years, making great pizza at home always eluded me.

How To Cook Potatoes in the Electric Pressure Cooker
If I could make only one thing in the pressure cooker, I’d pick potatoes. They cook in only eight minutes and come out creamy and flavorful each time. In fact, I think they taste better — more potato-y than traditional boiled, steamed, or baked potatoes. After cooking, you can use the potatoes however you’d like. For a quick side dish, I toss them in melted butter and add some freshly chopped herbs and a generous sprinkle of salt.

How To Make Chicken Stock in an Electric Pressure Cooker
Chicken stock, one of the building blocks of good cooking, is a snap to make in the pressure cooker. After only two hours, you’re rewarded with a rich, flavorful broth that tastes like it simmered all day. For chicken stock, you need about three pounds of bone-in chicken. There’s always a lot discussion about what makes the best chicken stock. In my opinion, any bone-in chicken works just fine. (Heck, in a pinch you can even use the carcass from a rotisserie chicken.
