French Bread in a Bread Machine

Okay the title of this blog is a little misleading.  You make the dough in the bread machine but then remove the dough to bake the bread. I was able to start the dough before we left for church and then make it into a loaf when we got home.  Easy peasy!

Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs

As I have said previously, there are a few items that I cannot cook to save my life.  Hard boiled eggs are one of those items. I’ve shared my technique for making them in the oven.  This is my technique for making the hard boiled eggs in my pressure cooker.
