Why Did I Disappear?
Before talking about the recipe, I must share few things with you, a little personal but I guess you (my readers) should know what was going on and why I didn’t post for a while. First, let me say that all is well at my end and I spent past days enjoying success and pleasant surprises from my family and friends.
The best thing about being your own boss is taking time off whenever you want and I had to spend some time away from my blog and enjoy all the blessings God showered me with.
I love my stove top pressure cooker, but the microwave version made me fall in love again. I never cooked in the microwave before, the idea is all new to me since I mainly use my stove and oven to cook and the microwave is left for heating food.
