Everything is wonderful

Is it odd that I am so ecstatic about my new pressure cooker? I feel like it has opened new doors for me. Doors that were previously shut due to time constraints, cheapness of canned beans, and {mostly} laziness.

I cooked chickpeas in 8 minutes. I cooked black beans in 4. Now I just put some black eyed peas on to cook...AND SHUT THEM OFF TWO MINUTES LATER!!! This is too good to be true. Why doesn't everyone use a pressure cooker? Why am I just now getting one?!!??
And I haven't even tried cooking grains yet.

Wow--those cooking times are very impressive! I still don't have a pressure cooker...what brand do you have? Do you find it easy to use? I have been thinking about getting one for a while, but haven't wanted to "waste" the money. You make it sound worth it, though!

I am a bit scared of them, but after reading 3 posts about them on different blogs, I am starting to think they may be a good thing! My only problem is a space or lack of it, issue!

Would not want to live without my pressure cooker! And the dried legumes are so much better for you without all that salt.
