Have you heard about the show on the W Network called Pressure Cooker? It's a fun cooking competition in which home cooks receive ingredients on conveyer belts to make a delicious dish in very little time. It's an interesting concept—cooking under time constraints with only the ingredients on hand. This is a familiar situation for most of us; who amongst us has not tried to throw together a decent supper at 5:00 pm with only a few ingredients in the fridge and cupboards?
What I'm saying is that sometimes my life feels like an episode of Pressure Cooker, but without the celebrity chef involvement.
The great thing about this show is that they post their recipes from each episode for us to enjoy—good news for recipe junkies like myself. A few weeks ago, they featured a Craft Beer White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Trifle, and I decided to see if I could adapt this recipe given the ingredients that I had on hand—no trips to the grocery store allowed! I also decided to make it vegan, and I'm happy to say the result was wonderful! Also wonderful, the recipe calls for only three tablespoons of beer, which means I was able to enjoy a brew after throwing this quick and easy trifle together!
