This summer has really been a whirlwind. But with the manuscript for cookbook #2 turned in, I’ll have more time for article-writing, zine-making, and blog-writing (I hope). Here’s a few things I’ve written around the internet lately.
I’m also featured in Sirsee: Volume 1, a lovely little publication featuring recipes, poetry, prose, and artwork, all centered around the theme of “ripe.”
It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but it’s for good reason, I swear! I am (drum roll please) writing a new cookbook! It’s another electric pressure cooker cookbook, but with more fun, interesting recipes for those ready to take the next step in their pressure cooker relationship. It’ll have lots of fun flavors and dishes and will incorporate the pressure cooker as part of your functioning, 21st century kitchen.
So in the meanwhile I’ll try to put up a blog post or two, but you’ll be hearing much more from me after the summer. It’s summer anyway, you should be sitting by a pool and reading a thriller-romance, not reading my dumb blog.
Keep an eye out for the cookbook via St. Martin’s Press, due out next spring!
I wrote stuff and things! I hope you like.

Here’s some recent articles featuring my byline! All include a recipe! Whoop dee doo!
In case you missed it, I wrote a cookbook. It was released in April, and has been chugging along quite well. Things really picked up last week when Amazon Prime Day rolled around and they ran an impossible-to-resist deal on the Instant Pot. I guess lots of people buying their new cooker needed a cookbook to go with it, because my book rocketed to the #2 position in all of Amazon books! Pretty amazing and totally weird. Only the new Harry Potter book could best my ‘lil cookbook.
Anyway, if you’re a pressure cooker lover like me or are just getting into it/thinking about getting into it, then try out my book. It’s under $10 with over 100 recipes and it’s getting pretty good reviews. And just to further tempt you, below is a sample recipe from the book. Enjoy!
Eggs in Purgatory With Eggplant
from The Instant Pot© Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook: Easy Recipes for Fast & Healthy Meals
Serves 2 to 4
1 small eggplant, mostly peeled, cut into 1/2″ pieces
1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 large garlic cloves, minced
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, with most of the liquid drained out
1 tablespoon harissa or 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
freshly ground black pepper
4 to 6 fresh eggs
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
4 to 6 thick slices good-quality rustic bread, for serving
hot sauce, for serving (optional)
- Toss the eggplant with the salt and spread out onto a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Let sit 15 to 30 minutes. Take more paper towels and press out any moisture, wiping away some of the salt as you go.
- Preheat the Instant Pot by selection Saute.
- Once hot, add the oil. Add the eggplant and cook, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pot, for 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for one more minute.
- Add the tomatoes, harissa or paprika, and red pepper flakes, and season with black pepper. Stir. Select Cancel and secure the lid.
- Select Manual and cook at high pressure for 10 minutes.
- Use a quick release. Remove the lid, stir, and select Saute. Crack the eggs, one at a time, into a small bowl, and lower each one onto the top of the bubbling sauce.
- Cook, loosely covered, until the egg whites are set but the yolks are still runny, 4 to 6 minutes.
- Top with parsley and serve with bread and hot sauce (if using).
