I've only just started experimenting with the rice cooker function. Based on my initial results, I would suggest using slightly less liquid than the rice would call for on the stove top, maybe 25% less. As long as that liquid is a half a cup or more, you should be fine in the IP.
Cook right in the pot.

When I cook rice it always wants to stick on the bottom of the pot. How do you stop that?

I've only tried it a couple times so far, but haven't had that problem. The rice mode is supposedly moisture sensor controlled, so theoretically it should stop cooking before the bottom is dry and the rice cooks onto it.

Of course, going by the interwebs, plenty of people eschew the rice mode and set the pressure cooking setting manually for rice, so apparently some folks feel they can do better than the rice mode.

I can't speak to every recipe here, but my IP experience is that any PC recipe works with pretty much any pressure cooker. So, yes, with reservations--some things like yogurt are probably IP-specific, as the IP has a setting and process specifically for that.

Now, if I could just figure out how to make ice cream with it.... :-)

Fill the space between the steel pot and the outer unit with water and salt.
Freeze thoroughly.
Fill the pot halfway with cream,milk sugar and flavoring.
Seal the lid and kick the entire thing around your house for 20-30 minutes.

You can only make this recipe once.

It doesn't cook for you any more than an oven cooks for you, so it's not going to SOLVE that for you.
It does reduce the need for attention to several variables when following a recipe, so it might HELP, though.

Learning to cook is one of those things where it helps if you have a "cooking" mom, someone who can teach you the fundies. (Fundamentals). BUT, even if you are starting from total scratch, you can learn a lot without killing yourself or poisoning your family. (LOL).

There are a crapload of IP cookbooks out there. The good thing about most is that they focus on the sort-of crockpot type of use--throw in X+Y ingredients, set the time, and eat.

You might want to start out with simpler/easier dishes, and see how those go.

May I ask, what type of foods do you like? Or your family, if there is one?

Lucky me I have no family. My mother cooked all day from scratch and her food was so good but I have not seen her since I was 10. She decided to wave all parental rights and move back to Germany. I at least can make kick ass chili with rice. I can no longer eat poultry on the most part for I feel like I am eating my parakeets distant cousins LOL
