Just like the title says, I love my air fryer! I am always looking for new recipes to use in my air fryer so this is a perfect cookbook for me. I only wish there were pictures for a lot more, maybe even every recipe, as it stands now there is a picture for every 4-8 recipes. I want to see all of the yummy looking food! I can’t wait to try the steak bites and sauce, it sounds delicious!
I received The 'I Love My Air Fryer' 5-Ingredient Recipe Book as part of a NetGalley giveaway. Air fryers are the hot new appliance on kitchen countertops these days. We love ours for preparing frozen foods, refreshing take-outs, and putting a new twist on favorite vegetables, and we're always looking for new ways to put it to work. This is a great recipe book. The five-ingredient parameter keeps things necessarily simple and there's a surprising versatility of recipes, from breakfast entrees to appetizers to main courses, It may have a ton of staying power in 5-10 years, if and when air fryers go the way of the breadmaker, but at the moment it's a really nice resource.
A great resource for air fryer users that don't want overly-complicated recipes and just want to learn to use the air fryer in a practical and competent way.
This book and the recipes may inspire to actually go out and buy and air fryer and stop looking at them. Great variety and recipes seem easy and healthy
Absolutely loved the recipes and the intro to figuring out how to work my air fryer was oh so helpful. My family has loved each and every recipe I have made from breakfast, to dinner to dessert. A perfect cookbook to have on hand when you purchase an air fryer.
Air fryers are the hottest kitchen appliance out there. As people are striving to eat healthier but still have those fried foods they love they are snatching them up. This cookbook explains the air fryer and how it is used. Each one is a little different but they all work basically the same way. Not only do cooks want healthier foods they also want them to be easy to put together and this cookbook combines these in one place. There are recipes for breakfast items from egg white frittatas to scones. Appetizers from egg rolls to buffalo wings. And then the dinner items are great. Vegetables of all kinds, drop biscuits, chicken made lots of different ways. You will be able to find something for everyone and feel good about it.
Had me at the title. Once I received an air fryer for Christmas, I went down a deep rabbit hole looking for good cookbooks for this new kitchen tool. And the cookbooks were ALL over the place ranging from excellent to atrocious. While I only purchased 6 cookbooks, I checked out another 8 from the library. This one is worth purchasing. Basic air fryer info clear and informative. The recipes obviously have been tested before publication, and while I have only tried two so far there are many that I will try. Easy and delicious so far. Photos are gorgeous. Professional presentation...which I only mention as two of the cookbooks that I stupidly purchased (suckered in by the promise of hundreds of recipes) were riddled with typos, sloppily laid out and lacking photos.
I considered myself a reasonably competent air fryer user, so wasn’t sure i would get much from this book.... but i was so wrong. As well as a large number of great recipies, that are easy to follow. This book also gives the reader a lot of genuinely useful information about air fryers and how to get the most out of owning one. Thoroughly recommended to all air fryer users. Thank you to Netgalley and #Adamsmedia for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed looking though this book and trying some of the recipes. I will be buying the hard copy of the book when it comes out. Thank you NetGalley for a digital copy of this book for my honest opinion.
A cool book with lots of fun and easy to try recipes for an air fryer. I have had my air fryer for almost a year now and haven't tried many of these recipes! Looking forward to trying them out and this book is a great resource for anyone with an airfryer! Thank you to netgalley and the publishers for providing me with an arc for an honest revieW!
Focusing on only using five ingredients per recipe really allows the user to hone in on how the air fryer works and helps new users learn to master their fryer without the complications of a complex recipe. The ingredients are common things the average household might have on hand or reasonably purchase, adding another layer of helpfulness. The only change that might make this cookbook more user friendly is if instead of a "pantry staples" section there were a "special tools required" section. For instance, most air fryers come with a pan sheet and a toasting rack. They do not all come with silicon muffin cups, cake pans or other specialty kit items. Knowing what is needed before reading halfway through the recipe would be more helpful for the user than a separate section specifying they will need salt and pepper. Overall a good cookbook full of simple, tasty recipes that make sense and are easy to follow.
I am new to air frying, and found some good ideas and recipes in this cookbook! I think it will also be great for my 19 yr old, who uses it to cook wings once a week and is now thinking of trying some other simple recipes. Good images and clear instructions.
The "I Love My Air Fryer" 5-Ingredient Recipe book has some really good and easy to follow recipes. Everything I tried came out deliciously and I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who has a air fryer or is thinking about purchasing an air fryer. You can't go wrong with this book.
I recieved a digital copy of this title free from the publisher in exchange for my feedback. This book has simple easy recipes to use with an air fryer. I liked that there was a section in the front that went over how to use the device and what accessories you will need to create some of the recipes. One that that could have made this title better was if there was a picture accompanying each recipe rather than just a few scattered throughout.
This book has a lot of basic air fryer recipes, along with a few surprises (Chicken Cordon Bleu, Lobster Tails). It is very straightforward. Each chapter lists the recipes, each recipe lists ingredients and instructions. The simplest recipes are a good reference for new owners. I do think there should be more emphasis on the fact that times and temps may need adjustment. It doesn't hurt to check often, change things as you go or the next time. There are a few recipes that need more prep and assembly like Empanadas or Calzones. It's the recipes in between that interest me - scones, lemon bars, stuffed mushrooms, and yes, the cordon bleu. This is a useful book. with a nice range of things to try.
Thank you for the opportunity to read through this cookbook in exchange for honest feedback. This air-fryer centric cookbook is excellent. It cuts through all the BS -- straightforward recipes with a handful of common, usual ingredients that we all probably have cooked with or may have some familiarity with depending on skill level. Most dishes are pretty common, with some interlopers that are bit more specialized. As expected, the use of air fryer is the innovation. Some things aren't (in my view) usually cooked with that sort of equipment, so there lies the novelty of this book. I particularly think that this one is a high quality cookbook because it collates all the different types of dishes into one collection, doesn't fluff with unnecessary info, and includes relevant data. Also keeps to realistic dishes and ingredients. I would suggest this to others.
The title says it all! I love my air fryer, I have recently purchased a Ninja Foodie and the XL grill, so am always looking for new recipes that I can try. One thing I really liked about this book in particular is that most of the ingredients are things you already have in your cupboards as staples and most of the ingredients are a handful of things not a massive list. There are loads of different things to try and most of them are very easy to make. One thing I disliked about the book, is that there isn't many pictures, I am very influenced over how food looks so felt a little disappointed that it read more like a shopping list (so deducted a star). I have already tried quite a few of the recipes and will enjoy making my way through the book. A great addition to any kitchen. Thank you to Netgalley and Adams Media for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts and opinions are my own.
Reviewed: June 1, 2021 Pub Date: July 13, 2021 I do absolutely love my Air Fryer. I use it almost everyday and was thrilled that there is a cookbook dedicated this this LIFE CHANGING appliance. I love that in the introduction, this appliance was introduced. It is "relatively" new and some are just learning about how fabulous they really are. I enjoy the different sections of this cookbook. From breakfast all the way to dessert, the air fryer can do anything. I also like how many of the recipes in this cookbook are 5-7 ingredients. This is so manageable for someone who is new to the kitchen. I am most excited to try making bagels in the air fryer and I will be using this cookbook to give it a try!
Air fryers are more than the flavour of the week, they are incredibly versatile and can replace several appliances. The author, Robin Fields, lists reasons to air fry, how to clean air fryers, staple ingredients and tips. We purchased a convection oven/air fryer for Christmas and are happy we did. We especially like its ability to dehydrate several racks of food simultaneously. We also like that the house does not heat up nearly as much as traditional ovens do on hot days. From an expert cook's perspective there is not much new here. However, it is lovely to have these recipes in one place. Recipes are inspirational, too, and are meant to supply ideas for other creations. In this book each recipe contains only 4-5 ingredients, all of which are easily available with the exception of one or two. As I have celiac disease I substitute most starches such as flours and bread crumbs. So far have made and enjoyed Scotch Eggs, Fried Pickles, Korean-Style Wings (excellent!) and Savory Roasted Carrots (delicious!). On the list to make in future are the Cheesy Cauliflower Tots, Dill Pickle-Ranch Wings (excellent way to use up pickle juice), Honey-Sriracha Pork Ribs, Garlic-Lemon Scallops, Chili-Lime Shrimp and the Cheesy Cauliflower Crust Pizza and Caramel Baked Apples. I bet several of these will be added to our rota. Most people will find something interesting to try in this book, especially those new to air frying and cooks who gravitate toward simple recipes. My sincere thank you to Adams Media and NetGalley for the privilege of reading (and drooling over!) this book.
I am 100% in love with this cookbook! I've already made several items from it. Of those I've tried, the Cajun Fried Chicken is my favorite so far. I still have a list of recipes to take for a spin as time allows. What I really like - - the recipes are easy. There aren't complicated ingredients or steps. This is real-life cooking that can be done anywhere, anytime. I do wish there had been more pictures. There are a few, but I'm a cook that likes to visualize things. Pictures go a long way with me. Needless to say, I'll be purchasing a copy of this recipe book for myself when it releases in July. Thank you to NetGalley for this ARC. I voluntarily chose to review it and the opinions contained within are entirely my own.
I generally use my air fryer to cook nuggets, fish fingers or chips/fries... This book takes it to the next level, with easy to create and cook recipes.. More photos are always great, but overall I really like the ideas in this book. Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
There are some GREAT air fryer recipes in this book!!! And they really do only require around 5 ingredients for each one, which is really nice when you’re looking for something quick and easy. I’m also new to the world of air fryers and was worried there’d be a learning curve but this book gave me tips and tricks to get started!
I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. I bought an air fryer/toaster oven all of two weeks ago, and was approved for this brand-new cookbook all of a week later. I felt like the Book Gods had smiled upon me! This book of 5-ingredient recipes is apparently one in a series of air fryer cookbooks. One important note straight-up: a lot of the recipes actually have more than 5 ingredients as things like flour, sugar, salt and pepper, and vanilla extract are regarded as freebies that most cooks will have around. That's fair, I suppose, but the title could have also been changed to something more accurate that was still catchy. After explaining how air fryers work, the book quickly gets into the recipes. There are sections on breakfast, appetizers and snacks, side dishes, chicken, beef and pork, fish and seafood, vegetarian mains, and desserts. As the cookbook started, I was disappointed that a lot of the recipes didn't seem much different from the booklet that came with my air fryer, but as it continued, I appreciated the greater variety of recipes it offered. Unfortunately, there are only a few photographs in each section. In the end, I found several new recipes I intend to try out in my newest kitchen gadget. While I do wish the book had included more of interest--and more photographs--I do feel that this series is one to watch, as I liked the variety of foods they described.
Book title: I love my air fryer Author: Robin Fields Publisher: Adams Media Publication Date: 20 July 2021 Review Date: 11 June 2021 on Goodreads My thanks to Netgalley, Adams Media and Robin Fields for an advance copy This is an ideal book with stacks of great recipes easily made in your air fryer. The recipes are well laid out and include nutritional values per serve. I look forward to purchasing this one.
Love how simple this book makes the air frying experience. We have a Ninja Foodi air fryer and can't wait to try out some of these recipes. The format is approachable and the recipes seem like they have appropriate portion sizes as well. Looking forward to trying these!
If you love your air fryer and enjoy easy and delicious recipes, then this cookbook is for you! “The "I Love My Air Fryer" 5-Ingredient Recipe Book” is packed with simple recipes for everything from breakfast to dinner, from appetizers to desserts. All of the recipes use five ingredients or less (not counting a short list of pantry staples most people will already have on hand), and all of the ingredients will be easy to find at your local grocery store. The only thing that would have made this cookbook better would have been more photos – I’m a person who loves a photo of every recipe. I tried a couple of the recipes and found the instructions to be clear and easy to follow, and most importantly, the results were tasty! I seriously would never have tried making bagels or blueberry muffins in my air fryer, but yum! Anything you can make in your oven, you can make in your air fryer with the right adjustments, and this cookbook will help you do it. Stop thinking your air fryer is just for fries and chicken nuggets, get this cookbook and start making the most of this versatile small appliance! Many thanks to NetGalley and Adams Media for providing me an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I love my air fryer, but it really didn't come with a lot of recipes. This easy 5 ingredient cookbook not only gives me a bunch of interesting recipes to try, but has also given me the inspiration to adapt some old favourites.
My husband bd got an air fryer for his birthday (it’s been a year of owning it) and I never realized how much you can make with it. Everyone who owns an air-fryer NEEDS to have this wonderful cookbook. I loved this but only wish there were more photos of the recipes which is the only reason why I gave it 4 stars. Otherwise, it’s filled with easy directions and simple ingredients.
When I saw my friend Sue Em had read and reviewed this, I knew I had to check it out. I had also received an air fryer for a gift, but had no idea about how to use it, what variation was needed in recipes, etc. My local bookstore had few books on the topic and my library had less. Not wanting to purchase any without checking them out first, I was stuck. This is filled with some wonderful recipes, with easy to follow instructions, and many that sound delicious and easy to make. Despite the fact that most of us are still spending more time at home, that doesn’t mean that I always have time to spend hours in the kitchen, and sometimes I just want something that is quick and easy. A quick, easy and healthier way of cooking sounds good to me, especially as warmer days are here, and - honestly - who wants to spend more time in the kitchen than they have to on those rare days when the weather is perfect, or when the heat is unbearable. Including 175 recipes that include no more than five ingredients, some less, for breakfast, appetizers, dinner and dessert, this offers options for everything ’from French Toast Sticks to Buttermilk-Fried Chicken Thighs’ for cooking with your Air Fryer, whether it’s on a daily or infrequent basis. This also includes per serving Calories, Fat, Protein, Sodium and Carbohydrates per serving, as well as substitutes for some recipes. A welcome addition to any cookbook collection. Pub Date: 28 Jul 2021 Many thanks for the ARC provided by Adams Media
I too, love my air fryer so I was excited to get some new recipes for it! This is a really simple and straightforward recipe book for the appliance with some great ideas.
Not your typical cookbook. I love the 5 ingredient recipes but don’t think that means these are going to be oversimplified recipes. This book really pushes what you can do with your air fryer (salmon, lasagna & even chocolate chip cookies!) without going kitschy. This cookbook will get a ton of use in my kitchen.
Amazing cook book! I love using my air fryer as often as possible and this made me realize there are a lot more recipes I can make than what I originally thought. I love that it's a 5-ingredient recipe book, so you don't need too much on hand to make a lot of these delicious foods. I do wish each recipe had a picture since I'm a visual person, but other than that I love it!
I really DO love my airfryer, but after reading this cookbook, I realized I definitely have been under-utilizing it. It gets nearly daily use, warming up pizza and roasting all kinds of vegetables, but I’ve never thought of using it for many of these kinds of recipes… fresh baked bagels and scones, quiches, scotch eggs, crab rangoons! There are so many recipes I can’t wait to try, I gave up on bookmarking all the interesting ones - I’m just going to cook my way through the book. The cookbook starts out with a general introduction to airfryers. Every recipe has only five main ingredients, which keeps everything simple and pretty fast to assemble. My only complaint is that I wish there was a photograph of each finished dish accompanying every recipe. Even so, this one has definitely earned a place on my cookbook shelf. I am very grateful to NetGalley and AdamsMedia for the opportunity to read and review I Love My Air Fryer!
Thank you so much to Simon & Schuster/Adams Media for allowing me to review this advance copy. This is everything I've been looking for in an air fryer cookbook. It's not that I mind some of the recipes out there that are difficult, or that test my memory of the French language with their more out of the ordinary ingredients/techniques. But these days I'm looking for simple and The "I Love My Air Fryer" 5-Ingredient Recipe Book is exactly that. Unpretentious, clear, and concise, Robin Fields offers up nearly 200 recipes across all categories (breakfast, appetizers and snacks, main dishes for chicken, beef, pork, fish/seafood, and vegetarian, and desserts) that I could definitely see my family eating (I sympathize with all the mamas of picky eaters out there!). I can't wait to try every single one of these meals (oh the pretzel chicken tenders and the crustless chocolate cheesecake!) and to get a physical copy to add to the kitchen. I definitely recommend this to anyone in charge of prepping the family meals.
I was given an online ARC and I had to have this in print. I am one of many who love their air fryer! I use it almost daily and the recipes that are covered in this cookbook are things I have never even thought of doing. Can't wait for it to arrive!
I thought this is a good book for beginners. It has a wide range of recipes that use common ingredients. And they seem pretty easy. I haven’t tried them out yet. But plan on doing so soon. Some of the recipes were on the high side for calories, that would be my only negative about this book.
I loved the recipes in this book! I use my air fryer in a daily basis and I’m always looking for new things to try! Very impressed with the photos in this book and the new recipes offered!
I enjoyed reading this and will definitely be making some of these when I get my air fryer. I also like that most of these recipes are recipes everyone already enjoys, they just converted them to air fryer times and instructions. I really appreciate that because it is hard to guess how to convert a regular recipe to an air fryer or instapot.
The book is quite interesting but you might need a large Air Fryer or an oven that can offer it as an option if you want to be able to do all the recipes. There are other recipes that can be done in a smaller air fryer and they too look delicious. It even has directions to do a hard-boiled egg, which I did not know could be done in an air fryer. The recipes have the nutritional info which I truly appreciate. It has cream cheese wontons, onion rings, cinnamon rolls, mozzarella sticks, apple chips, garlic knots, roasted broccoli, and many more recipes I want to try. It has main dishes recipes with chicken, fish, pork and vegetarian, plus the breakfast, snacks, and desserts. In conclusion, I think this book has great recipes and is a great addition for someone who wants to have food with fried texture without the oil.
You can’t find more comfort food that the recipes in The "I Love My Air Fryer" 5-Ingredient Recipe Book. Many are variations on what my midwestern grandma taught me to cook when I was young. While the calories may have slightly gone down, due to the air fryer, most of the recipes are not diet food by anyone’s definition. Plus, the use of convenience foods, like store-bought BBQ sauce, to lower the ingredient count means the sodium here is sky high. However, I commend the author and publisher for publishing nutritional information for each recipe. There are only a few negatives to this cookbook. There are no allergen warnings or substitutions for common allergens. There are few photos too (though that may be less of an issue since most foods will be familiar, at least to American readers). I don’t need to see a photo of BBQ ribs, meatloaf, or hot dogs. I was gifted an air fryer over three years ago for Christmas. It is still sitting in its box, unopened. I think the quick and easy (not to mention inexpensive) recipes included here might just get me to crack it open. 4 stars for The "I Love My Air Fryer" 5-Ingredient Recipe Book. Thanks to Adams Media and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
What an awesome cookbook! This is a must have I think for a busy family or as a housewarming gift or for any new Air Fryer owner. I can’t wait to make many of these recipes. I would definitely buy this for myself or as a gift. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the e-arc I received I exchange for my honest review.
I’ve never been big on frying foods, so I bought an air fryer a few year sago, but never really got into using it. It’s not that it doesn’t work, and it’s not that I don’t like the way the food turns out. it’s mostly because I know how to cook so well with a conventional oven that I just didn’t want to learn a new way to cook, maybe. So I saw this book and figured why not read it? I’m glad I did. I was able to get my head around making more than just potato chips and French fries in the big thing that sits on my counter taking up prime space. Now I have a slew of recipes I can’t wait to try in my air fryer. From Scotch Eggs to cakes, I’m going to be a busy gal and I think that using the air fryer is going to be the best thing I have done this year, aside from getting my vaccinations.
As someone who just received an air fryer a few months ago, I found this book to be one of my favorites. It has a great variety of recipes and ones that I didn't even know you could make in an air fryer! (Hello, cinnamon buns). Great for beginners and anyone else looking for an all round cookbook for their air fryer delights!
*** ARC provided by Adams Media through NetGalley *** “I Love My Airfryer” 5-Ingredient Recipe Book by Robin Fields sounded like a perfect read for me as I’ve just acquired my first such miracle kitchen appliance, and I really do love it. Move over Instant Pot (well, for summer at least). I found the book really helpful to get a sense of what I could use my air fryer to make, and the techniques and temperatures that will cause the greatest success. I’ve already made four of the recipes and they have all been great. Numerous of the recipes require a number more than five ingredients, and to me, the “five or less” ingredients isn’t really the hook. The recipes, ingredients, and instructions are accessible, family-friendly, and a great alternative to take out. For our family, this is a cookbook that contains a high percentage of recipes we would try and probably enjoy. A really handy “US/Metric Conversion” chart is included in the final pages. In addition to temperature conversions to Celsius (which my appliance uses and cannot be changed), it includes volume and weight conversions, and baking pan sizes. Very handy! #NetGalley #AdamsMedia
My new toaster oven did not come with an air frying option but after reading this cookbook, I think I might need one. Apparently, just about everything you cook in an oven you can cook in an air fryer oven. Seriously, some of the recipes are for things I would have never thought to make let alone use an air fryer to do it: Strawberry Pastry, Pork Egg Rolls, Fried Mash Potato Balls and Yeast Rolls! I agree with another reviewer that the "Pantry Staples" section is not necessary and would prefer more details on which type of pan/tray to use. It did seem like almost every recipe used a 6" round cake pan which seemed both odd and really small for most recipes. I would have loved to see more photos and even though everyone buying a new cookbook has this complaint most do not including this one. So I took a star away for lack of photos.
Thank you Net Galley for a copy of “I Love My Air Fryer” by Robin Fields. I have had an air fryer ever since they came out on the market but never knew how I could put it to use. But this cookbook is wonderfully full of delicious recipes to try. I have tried several and was very pleased with the food! Highly recommend!
This is what I need in my life! Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with my air fryer! I cook everything from grilled cheese to frozen pot pie and everyone between in it but this book is full of recipes that I wouldn’t have thought of but I would totally eat! It covers everything from frittatas to Apple fritters and everything in between-even macaroni and cheese! The fried pickle chips hooked me! And the fact that the recipes are super simple and use things that most people have around and not fancy ingredients that you have to search out, makes this book even better. I will totally be buying it once it is released! Thanks to Adams Media and Netgalley for this Arc in exchange for my review.
Thank you NetGalley for this uncorrected proof for review. AWESOME! My airfryer was second hand and the recipe cook had like 4 recipes and that was sad. I live in a very hot place and need (want) food that can be baked and fried without heating my house. The book was easy to read, well laid out and had really yummy recipes. Well done! :)
I am an air fryer fan, but I would like to extend my use of it. This book came in handy as it is filled with different protein selections for every palate, fish and seafood, vegetarian, and my favorite..desert. There is even a selection on low-carb essentials. I found most of the dishes to be easy to make and delicious. a keeper for sure!
This is a must have for those who have an air fryer. I will definitely be getting a hard copy. The ebook was done so well too, especially for an arc. I recommend the chocolate chip cookies!!!
I liked this cookbook a lot. It had quite a few colorful photos for some of the recipes and that is a huge plus for me. The recipes all look very easy to make and they are super easy to follow. I liked how it included notes and variations. My husband is vegan and some of the notes included ways for the recipe to be made vegan, so major plus for me. This cookbook includes nutritional information which is very nice as I hate guessing or having to calculate it on my own. The calories per a serving are reasonable. Rating: 4 out of because I really want photos for every recipe. I know that is me being picky but the photos really do make a huge difference to me. I eat with my eyes first.
Love your air fryer? This wonderful appliance has taken the world by storm, and everyone, it seems, is using their air fryer almost every day. That’s why Robin Fields’ “I Love My Air Fryer" 5-Ingredient Recipe Book: From French Toast Sticks to Buttermilk-Fried Chicken Thighs, 175 Quick and Easy Recipes is very timely. Fields has chosen recipes that will appeal to everyone, even children, and all of the recipes are quick and easy, calling for only five ingredients. The few ingredients make for quick food good even for weeknight cooking and quick lunches and dinners. The first chapter includes hints and how-tos on using every type of air fryer for those who aren’t familiar. The hints will be helpful to everyone. The ingredients called for in the recipes are standard, and easy to find in any grocery store. The recipes are written in the traditional manner and are easy-to-follow and understand. I’ve already tried several recipes from this excellent cookbook and every one has turned out picture perfect and delicious. The one drawback to this cookbook is the fact that there aren’t many photographs; it would be nice to see what the recipes are supposed to look like. Anyone who loves air-fryer cooking will want to add this cookbook to their cookbook shelf. It will be used often, especially when time is short and people are hungry. Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
I love this air fryer book! It helped me with my new air fryer and even my 7 year old thinks the recipes are yummy! He says 2 thumbs up!
This was an excellent air fryer cookbook. There’s useful information about buying and caring for an air fryer, and some recipes I’d never seen before. There are delicious recipes for breakfast, which isn’t a meal I’ve used the air fryer for. The only thing missing is picture for each recipe, which can be useful. My favorites so far are: Blueberry Scones, Hash Browns, Cheese Crackers, Korean Style Wings, Garlic Parm Fries, Zucchini Fries, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Brown Sugar Mustard Pork Loin, Coconut Shrimp, and Apple Fritters. If you have, or want, an air fryer, this is a great book and you. 4 stars. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
This book provided is a good jumping off point for me. I have had my air fryer for a bit now and have experimented with the frozen food aisle 🙄 and a few cuts of meat but not much else. This was great because it eased me into a few other categories I wouldn’t have attempted otherwise. I liked that most of the recipes listed ingredients that are easy to come by/have at home. I would have liked a bit more emphasis on healthier recipes which seems the purpose of air frying. Again, with this tool I feel I can tweak things a bit to compensate in that area. Oh, and pictures are sorely lacking which is a bit of a bummer. Overall though I think this book will help me throw a meal together in a pinch and be appreciated by many. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and Adams Media for a copy in exchange for a review.
