For me there is nothing magical about Valentine’s Day. I do, however, love that people want to spread love and acknowledge love at least one day a year but it makes me wonder why we don’t do it more often – as in everyday? Sending love to people makes sense as it gives your heart (mind and spirit) a sense of purpose. Being compassionate brings it into focus.
So, it is with love that I share with you a few of the lovely unsolicited testimonials that I have received lately. As a “rich and famous” author it often takes these little notes to keep me going; to remind me of why I have bothered writing cookbooks because sometimes people take a different tack, sending me notes about how my recipe didn’t work (when they changed many of the ingredients).
Ethiopian is my favorite food and hard to come by where I live in Dubuque, Iowa. Your recipes are easy and healthy too please keep them coming! ~Kris Becker Howe
I received my Vegan Under Pressure today as a gift from my daughter and it is awesome! The recipes are easy. The pictures are colorful and so interesting. I will try something new tomorrow. I am so thankful for the pressure instructions because I forget what to do from time to time. I must send my daughter a note of thanks before I forget. Thank you Jill for putting this book together. ~Gayle Cole
Congratulations! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart! You are such a great teacher. Your books are such an important part of my WFPB (whole food plant based) Lifestyle. I was at the McDougall 10 day program. From day one everyone was very excited to learn from the pressure cooker chef…… That was the first question everyone would ask each chef. “Are you teaching the pressure cooker?” I did not own one before I went and I purchased one while you were teaching, because I knew I could do it. As a matter of fact the first meal home was the Smokey Black Bean Chili……I kissed my family, opened the Instant Pot, and showed off my new cooking confidence and skills. Trust me my family is also grateful! I now have a Fagor pressure cooker as well. Sundays are my cooking day and they both pots go nonstop for a few hours to get the bulk of my cooking done for the week. I could not do what I do for my family of 6 without what I was taught there from everyone. I have even modified some of the other chef’s recipes to work in the pressure cooker. Now back to my Sunday personal cooking extravaganza…..Thanks for everything! ~Kathy Tarr
Can’t you feel the love. Well… I have it for you, too, even if you don’t write to me personally.
As my gift to any of you who purchased my cookbook Vegan Under Pressure, I put together an expanded table of contents of sorts to help you find your favorite recipes. I realize that the table of contents in the book is woefully lacking and the index might have been done by a monkey, however that would be insulting the monkey. Now you can at least find the pages of your favorite Vegan Under Pressure recipes much more easily by clicking here.
In case you have waited to make a loving Valentine’s Day dessert, you can still make the Straightforward Cashew Lemon Cheezecake, the Tapioca Berry Parfait or the Chocolate Almond Truffles. Or skip dessert and make a meal that will do your heart good. In my world that would include Orange Scented Beet Salad. Red never looks better to me.
Here’s to lots of love in your life every day.
