University of Maine Cooperative Extension will offer an online class about using electric pressure cookers to make quick and easy meals from 6–7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 19.

Just in time for busy back-to-school schedules, Quick Meals Using an Electric Pressure Cooker will demonstrate how to make meatloaf, mashed potatoes, rice and rice pudding. Participants will receive recipes before the workshop and can cook along in real time.
