Air Fried Tostones (plantains)

February 12, 2014 Food

Tonight we had Mexican food for dinner and I decided to try and make some tostones in my air fryer. Tostones are twice-fried plantains. These are the things that look like bananas but they are not. I actually hate bananas so trust me when I say plantains do not taste the same because I love […]

Frozen Egg Rolls and Crab Rangoon Cooked in the Philips Airfryer

January 27, 2014 Food

I promised you more on using the Philips Airfryer (disclosure: I was provided the Airfryer from SheSpeaks). Tonight I used it to cook some frozen egg rolls and crab rangoon. For our main meal I made stir-fry. We have this often because it is relatively healthy when we make it at home and we can […]

My First Use of the Philips AirFryer

January 16, 2014 Food

Recently SheSpeaks sent me a Philips AirFryer to use. I had heard about air fryers a bit but I was not really sure what it was until I looked it up. It is a small kitchen appliance for cooking food that uses heat and air. One of the cool things is that instead of deep […]

Winning at Weight Loss [infographic]

January 11, 2014 Weight Loss

Since I shared yesterday about my weight loss over the past year I thought an infographic today about weight loss would be fitting. I like this one overall, although the HCG diet part I disagree with since I tried it and I just do not think it is a good plan. Also, the part about […]

Roasted Cauliflower with Shallots, Garlic, Thyme and Parmesan RECIPE

December 5, 2013 Food

Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables and I find it is actually fairly versatile. Tonight I tried roasting the cauliflower with the addition of shallots, garlic, thyme, and then a sprinkle of some fresh Parmesan cheese. The result was a deliciously nutty flavor without any of that cabbage-like flavor that cauliflower can sometimes have. […]

Milk Matters [infographic]

September 28, 2013 Food

Are you a milk drinker? I am. I love milk – I drink skim milk these days but after you drink it for a while you don’t really notice the difference (until you drink something more). I even use skim milk in recipes all the time that call for something more. We are also big […]
