Loving My Air Fryer!
A few years ago, everybody was going nuts over a new phenomenon called an air fryer. This appliance can achieve the look and texture of deep fried food in a fraction of the time and using no oil. Sounded too good to be true. Even though I was tempted, I decided to not buy one because I didn't need another appliance on my counter.
My best friend, Towanda, is an avid thrifter like me and found a brand new air fryer at her local Goodwill. She had just used her air fryer the next day before and was telling me how much she loves it. I was excited when she told me she picked it up for me and it was only $20.00. Even before I got the air fryer, I was compiling recipes to try.
The first recipe I found was for extra crispy chicken wings. The instructions seemed very easy and I didn't have to marinate the wings. The secret ingredient to keep the crispiness is a sprinkle of baking powder. I tossed the wings in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. They came out perfectly crispy and flavorful.
You can make donuts, brussel sprouts, salmon and even bacon in the air fryer. I can't wait to see what I come up with next!
