Peckish Sister's Profile

Joined: December 11th, 2010

About me: I have always liked to cook, particularly breads, fruits, vegetables, vegetarian, poultry and lamb dishes. After marriage we cooked together progressively more difficult dishes with him doing the meat, grilling and frying, and I did the "dough" and the same type of things I had before. After children we started cooking more simply. After discovering the cause of my frequent migraines was an evolving long list of chemicals and odd ingredients, I began getting back to cooking from basic ingredients, and found I could be well again. I also try to cooking from what I can get in season at the ever present fruit and vegetable stands.

Air Fry Everything!

Beer Battered Onion Rings : page 32

I used gluten-free beer, flour and bread crumbs in this recipe. The trick was to be sure to spray on enough oil to saturate the coating or it came out dry and unappetizing. It was nice to be able to manipulate the recipe and make something gluten free. The amount that is proacticaql to make at one time depends on your air fryer.

Cherry Chipotle BBQ Chicken Wings : page 29

We liked the rub that was used for cooking the chicken wings, it is worth trying without the sauce. The ssauce was improved by heating the cherry jam to dissolve lumps and cutting up the larger cherries in it. We also like that the sauce was applied after cooking.

Honey-Mustard Chicken Wings : page 30

It will taste different depending on what type of mustard you use. Whole seed mustard made a thin sauce and many of the seeds did not stick. It helped for the final 4 minutes of cooking after the sauce was added, to stop at 2 minutes, add more sauce and shake, then cook for the final two minutes.

Sweet Chili Spiced Chicken : page 128

The dry rub is excellent. We frequently make this recipe with chicken thighs. I make large batches of the rub. For the two tablespoons of chili powder I make one teaspoon of it smoked paprika. The chicken is best fresh right out of the air fryer, so I prefer to not make enough for leftovers unless you want cooked chicken for a recipe.
