I really needed an innovative cookbook to help me change up my air fryer routine.  The recipes in this beautifully illustrated book  include many all-time favourite crowd pleasers:

Kale Chips
Fried Pickles
Potato Wedges (and Fries)
Corn on the Cob
Crispy Ranch Chicken Wings

Chicken Parmesan
Bruschetta Chicken (you add the tomatoes and seasoning half-way through)
<img src=""/>
Orange Chicken (!!! Yummy !!!)
Mongolian Beef
Beef Empanadas
<img src=""/>
Salmon Cakes
Bang Bang Shrimp
Fish Sticks 
Beer Battered Cod

... to name just a few!!!

What I love about this cookbook in particular is that the author includes an estimated cost guide:  I love advance warnings!  Some recipes can cost a fortune to whip up, especially if you have to search out or order exotic ingredients or spices.  My taste buds were well and truly intrigued by the wealth and variety of recipes in this excellent cookbook!  Cooking healthy is now even tastier - and faster - than ever.  Who doesn't love "crispy on the outside - juicy and  tender on the inside?"  

Hint, hint:   this air fryer guide and recipe book would make a great Xmas gift for foodies and cookbook collectors!

Absolutely a must if you have an air fryer. 
If you don’t. Why not? They are fab and these recipes ensure you get the most out of it. 
Illustrations or photos would have made it better.

Recipes are easy to follow .I haven’t tried any yet  because my air fryer broke just before I had time to even try any recipes .

Oh, my!  This book is chock full of recipes that are cheap and easy to make.  There are a whole bunch of things that are easy week night meals and menu options.  I will be adding quite a few of these to the menu at my house!

There’s definitely a number of air fryer recipes in this cookbook that I’ll be trying. I wish there had been more photos though. Thanks so much to NetGalley and Adams Media for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review!

I've been wanting an air fryer for a while and this book has convinced me to get one. I will definitely be making a ton of these recipes.

This book was a split decision for me. I thought there were a nice variety of recipes included and that there is some very helpful info included for those new to air frying (like me). However the cookbook collector in me was not enthused. This book offers very little visual appeal because the photos are few and very far between. So if you are looking for something to get you started and aren't overly troubled by using processed foods into your recipes, I think this is a good choice. However, if you are super health conscious, have diet restrictions or are looking for a new stunner for your book shelf, this is probably going to be a pass.

My air fryer attachment to my instant pot has sat in my cupboard, mostly unused since I bought it. So, I was excited to try out this cookbook, chock full of ideas.  

I would never have imagined making breakfast using the air fryer until reading this., but the idea of making French toast or banana bread using fascinating. I’m also interested in the puff pastry ideas, and excited by the idea of making a frittata without worrying about getting it cooked on the top (always a struggle). 

I appreciated the focus on affordability, but for me there were a few too many recipes with bacon and/or cheese for my liking; defiantly a bent more toward comfort food (great if you enjoy that!).

Sides like maple Brussel sprouts or roasted veggies and whole chicken have me intrigued, though. And I want to try making churros, shortbread, and the sea salt cookies- they all sound scrumptious.

Now, maybe I’ll learn to love my air fryer, and it won’t be so neglected!

I like the ease of the recipes in this book. They don't call for crazy spices or ingredients that's gonna have me trapsing around the city to find. It is straight forward simple food. A breakfast section, apps, chicken, beef and pork rounding out with shrimp & salmon dishes. This cookbook has a little but of everything for every one. A great addition to any cooks library.

Thank you to Netgalley and publishers for the arc in exchange for my honest opinion.

An awesome collection of air fryer recipes that are not boring and won't break the bank! Everything from appetizers to casseroles to fancy entrees can be made in the air fryer apparently..I can't wait to try making a cobbler!!

Recipe book delivered what it promised…

Part of a series specifically for air fryer appliances, this recipe book delivered. I think this book would appeal for beginner cooks, air fryer lovers and those looking for recipes on the not expensive side. Ranging in complexity, some meals were made up of just a few ingredients while others had different components with their own steps to complete. Types of dishes included appetizers, mail dishes, sweets and everything in between. 

All of it was laid out in easy to read fashion, clear lists of ingredients with many showcased in colourful, inviting pictures. For experienced cooks looking for a simple dish to beginners afraid to venture, this has something to appeal to everyone. I’m a newbie to the air fryer and having helpful hints on how create a range of tasty meals was just what I needed!

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. The "I Love My Airfryer" Affordable Meals Recipe Book by Aileen Clark was a revelation to me.  Like many, while stuck at home during the pandemic, I purchased an Air Fryer. The thing was, other than using it for re-heating french fries and frozen mozzarella sticks, I didn't really use it. I was beginning to think that it would be better just to pass it on to someone else because I wasn't using it at all. I found this book at the perfect time. The teen was off to college, cooking for one was frustrating, and I'd begun to depend on delivery too much. The recipes in the book have everything from snacks to full meals and desserts. Many of the recipes are easily adapted for smaller quantities, the ingredients are easily obtainable, affordable and I can make many of them more quickly and with less clean up than I would by traditional methods. The Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins, Chicken Taquitos, Maple Salmon, Smashed Red Potatoes, Maple Bacon Brussel sprouts, and Root Vegetable recipes are ones that I will make over and over. The recipes are well written and easy to follow. My only gripe would be that I wish there were pictures of all the recipes.

I love the fact that it gave me really interesting ideas that I had never considered before. I really enjoyed some of the recipes. Like every cook book there are recipes that you like and recipes that you dont or wont even attempt, so that is why it is important to have a variety. 

I was given an advance copy by netgalley and the publishers but the review is entirely my own.

This particular recipe book is unfortunately not the most appealing to read, although it does contain fair simple household recipes. I absolutely love my air-fryer so was excited to read this book.
It covers a wide range of meal options from breakfast through to dessert. Each recipe is easy to follow and contains minimal ingredients. It is mostly family friendly and will suit a beginner chef rather than a more adventurous chef. 
It does contain some photographs but not for every recipe. I feel people like to see more of these photos to give you an indication of your final product. 
Each recipe does come with nutritional value which I do like in a recipe book. 
Overall could be more eye catching to the reader, but the over content is pretty good. Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the ARC in return for an honest review.

I loved that this recipe book has SO MANY recipes!!! I also liked that it included an approximate price per serving with each recipe, perfect for a family on a budget. These recipes are quick and easy, nothing that you haven't tried before and not going to far outside of a US diners' comfort zone. You will have so many choices in each category, from appetizers, snacks, breakfast, dinners, dessert... everything you can dream of! Because the recipes are rather straight forward, you can customize them to make outside of your air fryer too - which I did with the sandwiches, as it seemed easier to grill the traditional way.. I made the Blue Cheese Burgers and Onion Rings. The burgers were amazing and I can't wait to make them again. I was less impressed with the onion rings, after all the work coating them, I wish they would have been more memorable. I also made Sausage Breakfast Burritos, and wow - just a couple minutes in the air fryer after assembling them give them a fabulous crispy outside that I'll be going back to!

Some of the vegetarian recipes that caught my eye and are next on my list to try: Spaghetti Squash Tacos, Blackberry and Goat Cheese grilled cheese sandwiches, and Italian Portobello Mushroom Steaks,

This is a gem of a cookbook for the airfryer, straightforward recipes with straightforward ingredients. It's a good book to give you some cooking inspiration. So far I have made: monkey bread, egg bites, honey goat's cheese balls (really delicious) and Parmesan cauliflower. all the recipes were accurate  and easy to follow.

I love this cookbook, especially with my newfound love for the air fryer! I really appreciate the focus on affordability which is always something I have to take into account when meal prepping. It is nice to have one consideration in cooking already thought out for you. Many of the ideas and recipes were new to me and have helped me feel more competent in the kitchen. Thank you to NetGalley and Adams Media for a copy of this book for an honest review.

Thank you to Natgally and the publisher for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 
I wanted to try this cook book because I recently purchased an air fryer and I wanted to expand my use of it beyond just veggies and the occasional potato based dish. This cookbook has a ton of recipes that I would have never have thought to make in an air fryer and is a really helpful tool in turning my air fryer into an actual cooking tool and not just a thing that takes up space in my kitchen. There is a wide variety of options and  I even found the recipes easily adjustable for my dietary restrictions.

Loved this book! I saved so many recipes that I can't wait to try! I've already tried the spaghetti squash tacos and it was so easy and delicious!
