My friend Andrea Nguyen cooks, teaches and writes in Santa Cruz, Calif. She sent forth a tweet this week about the situation in Afghanistan. Generous people helped her family when they fled Vietnam as refugees, and she is making plans to pay that forward to the Afghans who are now coming to our shores. Cooks are the best people.

The last time we spent time in the kitchen together was during the 2015 California drought. I was reporting on ways that Californians had shifted how they cooked, cleaned and shopped to conserve water. Andrea had developed a clever way to make pho in a pressure cooker (above). It means four of you could be eating pho in an hour.

She also has a pretty nifty recipe for pressure cooker Vietnamese caramel pork and eggs. Steam some rice and count your blessings.
