Cella's Recipe Corner: It’s a yummy day in Cella’s Recipe Corner
One of my friends had purchased one and raved about it. You can cook a small chicken in the cooker in 15 minutes, complete with juice for gravy. I’ve cooked a whole head of cauliflower in 5 minutes and cooked eggplant Parmesan, potatoes, carrots and pot roast in 45 minutes.
The cookers are easy to use. Just follow the book and you will have dinner on the table in no time. The cookers come complete with instructions and a recipe book. I have an 8-quart pressure cooker. I purchased a 6-quart one for my daughter, along with a pressure cooker book.
Peanut butter frosting
16-ounce can Pillsbury® creamy vanilla frosting
1/2 cup peanut butter
Place vanilla frosting and peanut butter in a mixing bowl. Cream and spread on prepared brownies or cake.
2 bunches cilantro, finely diced, stems removed
1 bunch green onions, finely sliced, including tops
1 medium yellow cooking onion, finely diced
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon salt, or less (will help break down cilantro)
3 jalapeños seeded and finely diced
About an hour before serving, combine the following ingredients in a mixing bowl and refrigerate: cilantro, green onions, yellow onion, lemon juice, salt and jalapeños. Serve with tortilla chips or with cooked rice.
Three-layered can’t leave “em” alone bars
1 (18.25-ounce) box white cake mix
2 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips
Grease 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Place cake mix, eggs and vegetable oil in a large mixing bowl. Mix until blended. Press only 2/3 of mixture in baking pan. Microwave milk, butter and chocolate chips in a bowl until melted. Check every 10 seconds and stir each time so chocolate does not burn. Stir until smooth and pour over crust in pan.
Top with gobs of remaining cake mixture. Bake in 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. When cool, refrigerate until ready to serve.
